Another traitor from the House Republicans has been unveiled.

You probably heard by the now about the viral audio conversation wherein House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was on a call with Liz Cheney and other House Republicans, he told Cheney that he would counsel Trump to resign back on January 10, 2021.

The audio conversation was posted on Thursday night by  The New York Times and aired on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show.

In the recording of a January 10 House Republican Leadership call, McCarthy is heard discussing the Democratic effort to remove Trump from office and saying he would tell Trump, ‘I think it will pass and it would be my recommendation he should resign.’

McCarthy added, “what he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it.”

Earlier Thursday, McCarthy tore into the Times’ report, which is based on an upcoming book from two of the paper’s reporters.

‘The New York Times’ reporting on me is totally false and wrong,’ the House Republican leader wrote in a statement tweeted out on Thursday with the caption ‘My statement on the New York Times’.

But with the audio now leaked, McCarthy’s private words to Liz Cheney tell a far different story.

NEWS: ⁦@maddow⁩ has audio of Kevin McCarthy saying privately after Jan. 6 that he expects impeachment to pass and was considering asking Donald Trump to resign.

Liz Cheney had pressed McCarthy about whether Trump could possibly choose to resign on his own:

“Is there any chance? Are you hearing that he might resign? Is there any reason to think that might happen?”

McCarthy made the claim a day after audio played by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow proved he in fact told Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) he wanted Trump gone before the end of his term in office, Mediaite reported.

More details from The Gateway Pundit:

McCarthy then admitted that this was a topic he has “had a few discussions” about with others. “My gut tells me no,” he said. “I’m seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight…Um, from what I know of him, I mean you guys all know him too, do you think he’d ever back away? But what I think I’m going to do, is I’m going to call him.”

The minority leader then explained he would appeal to Trump’s reason regarding an impending impeachment resolution. “This, this is what I think, we know it’ll pass the House. I think there’s a chance it’ll pass the Senate, even when he’s gone. Um, and I think there’s a lot of ramifications for that.” One such ramification would be that Trump could never hold federal office again.

McCarthy also indicated that he believed Twitter and Facebook should delete the accounts of lawmakers who were supporting Trump’s claim of a rigged election. “We can’t put up with that,” he said. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”
