McCarthy: Pelosi is endangering Constitution to ensure her power

Description:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts Democrats over proxy voting on ‘America's Newsroom.'


After House Democrats pass a $3 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy says the party is using the pandemic as an opportunity to restructure the government.
This peaceful protester in New York offered CNN viewers a powerful and hopeful message:
"The system is not going to win, the people have a voice now and they're listening to us because we are united. They're listening to us because stuff like this happens in the middle of Manhattan where thousands upon thousands of people don't have to stand for injustice anymore. We don't have to let that happen anymore. We don't have to let that happen anymore. ... We are peaceful protesters there's not reason that we should be arrested for being outside peacefully, you see no looting, you see no rioting. We are okay to be out here. The fact that they would give us a curfew at 8pm, they're trying to control us. They don't have that right to control us, if we want to speak, if we want to march we don't have to be silenced, we don't have to listen to what they're saying. And if you're listening, if you're watching right now, I want you to know that you have a voice, you can speak up. Black lives matter. You don't have to let white supremacy rule anymore."

Disinfectant wipes, spray and hand sanitizer remain difficult to find in this time of coronavirus, even months after the pandemic struck. Blame supply and demand, and quirks of this industry. How long will shelves remain bare? Manufacturers have struggled to keep up with a demand shock from coronavirus. This is a low margin, usually steady business where factories run at peak production to ensure profit. It's not a place with much excess production capacity or inventory sitting around. Manufacturers like Clorox and Lysol make it, then sell it. But the pandemic upset their fine-tuned production setup.

>> Ed: IT WE DO SEE THAT FROM
TIME TO TIME.
JOHN ROBERTS, THANKS FOR
STARTING US OFF.
>> Sandra: HERE WITH REACTION
TO ALL OF THIS IS THE JUSTICE
DEPARTMENT’S NEW UNMASKING
PROBE, HOUSE MINORITY LEADER
KEVIN McCARTHY NOW JOINS US.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE,
LEADER McCARTHY.
CAN YOU REACT TO BILL BARR
BRINGING ON JOHN BASCH WITH THIS
ISSUE OF UNMASKING?
WHERE DO YOU SEE ALL THIS GOING
NEXT?
>> EVERY DAY WE LEARN SOMETHING
MORE THAT MORE AND MORE
INDIVIDUALS WERE UNMASKED.
I THINK IT’S APPROPRIATE WITH
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS DOING
BECAUSE WE NEED TO GET BACK TO
THE BOTTOM OF THIS.
THE MORE WE LEARN, UNFORTUNATELY
WE FIND THAT THE OBAMA
ADMINISTRATION WAS MORE
INTERESTED IN UNMASKING FLAME
THAT THEN SECURING MASS FOR THE
NATIONAL STOCKPILE AND THAT’S A
REAL CONCERN TO EVERY AMERICAN.
>> Sandra: YOU GO BACK TO THE
WORDS THAT ARE OF THE DOJ
SPOKESPERSON KERRI KUPEC, AND
MAKING THE POINT THAT CERTAINLY
THIS IS NOT INHERENTLY WRONG TO
HAVE DONE THE UNMASKING BOARD TO
UNMASK, BUT SHE IS POINTING OUT
THE OBVIOUS.
IT’S A FREQUENCY THAT’S BEEN
QUESTIONED IN THE MOTIVATION
BEHIND IT.
WHAT SPECIFIC QUESTIONS DO YOU
HAVE AS THIS MOVES FORWARD?
>> THE QUESTION IS, IT’S NOT
WRONG TO GO AFTER AN AMERICAN
CITIZEN BUT THINK OF THE SIGNING
WHEN THEY DID IT.
THEY DID IT AFTER THE ELECTION,
AFTER IT WAS DECIDED THAT THEY
WERE GOING TO HAVE A NEW
PRESIDENT, NEW ADMINISTRATION,
AND THE PAST ADMINISTRATION IN
THAT LITTLE TIME.
WHILE THEY ARE STILL EMPOWERING
JANUARY, FOR THE SWEARING IN
OF JANUARY 20TH TO SPEND THEIR
TIME UNMASKING NOT ONE, BUT WE
HAVE THE VICE PRESIDENT WHO IS
NOW STUCK IN THE BASEMENT,
BASEMENT BY THEN.
THEN YOU MOVE ON TO AMBASSADORS,
PRESIDENTS AND OTHERS IN THERE.
IN THEIR DAILY BRIEFING ASKING
TO UNMASK INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE
BEEN GOING INTO A NEW
ADMINISTRATION THAT WAS DULY
ELECTED.
WHY?
WHY THEN?
WHY UNMASK THESE AMERICAN
CITIZENS.
WHY WOULD THIS ADMINISTRATION DO
THAT WHEN AT THE SAME TIME THERE
OWN INTELLIGENCE KNEW THAT WHAT
WAS BEING SAID ABOUT THEM, ABOUT
RUSSIA, WAS FALSE AND WRONG IN
GIVING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC A
FALSE NARRATIVE AND IT LYING TO
THEM AT THE SAME TIME?
THAT IS CONCERNING TO ME, NOT AS
A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN BUT AS
AN AMERICAN BELIEVES THE RULE OF
LAW?
THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TO ANY
AMERICAN, LESS KNOWN AND
INDIVIDUAL SUCH AS FLYNN WHO HAD
SERVED HIS NATION?
TIME TO DISCREDIT THIS
INDIVIDUAL WAS WRONG FROM THE
START AND USING THE POWER OF THE
OVAL OFFICE TO DO IT, THAT TO ME
WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM UP
BECAUSE OF THE RULE OF LAW
SHOULD BE THE ONE PART WE ALL
BELIEVE IN.
>> Sandra: WE WILL SEE WHERE
JOHN BASKETS WITH ALL OF THAT.
MEANWHILE YOU SAW FIRSTHAND WHAT
HAPPENED WITH NANCY PELOSI
YESTERDAY AND CANNOT VOTE ON THE
FISA BILL AFTER THE PRESIDENT
THREATENED TO VETO IT.
NANCY PELOSI SORT OF PREVIEWING
WHAT MAY BE TO COME IN ALL OF
THAT.
>> THERE ARE DIFFERENT VIEWS AND
PERSPECTIVES OF HERE IN TERMS OF
REMOTE VOTING.
WE HAVE ALL TRIED VERY HARD TO
WORK IN A BIPARTISAN FASHION,
BEING PRESENT DOESN’T
NECESSARILY REQUIRE A PHYSICAL
PRESENCE.
I THINK REMOTE OPERATIONS ARE
POSSIBLE BUT THAT’S NOT THE PATH
THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE GONE
DOWN.
BUT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE DONE
INSTEAD OF WORKING WITH US IS TO
USE THIS CRISIS TO TRY TO GAIN
PARTISAN BENEFIT.
>> Sandra: AND SO WE WILL GET
BACK TO THE PULLING OF THE FIGHT
IS ABOUT YESTERDAY AND WHERE
THAT GOES NEXT IN A SECOND, BUT
WHAT YOU JUST HEARD THERE WAS
FROM YOUR COLLEAGUE AT BLISS
CHAIN.
SHE’S NOT OPPOSED TO THE PROXY
VOTING BUT SHE’S MAKING IT CLEAR
THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN IN MANY
DIFFERENT WAYS.
I KNOW THAT YOU, LEADER
McCARTHY, ARE FIRMLY OPPOSED
TO IT, YOUR THOUGHTS?
>> LET ME BE CLEAR, LIZ CHENEY
IS OPPOSED TO PROXY VOTING, SHE
JOINS ME IN THAT A LAWSUIT
AGAINST DEMOCRATS.
EVERYONE SHOULD BE OPPOSED TO
PROXY VOTING.
ALMOST ONE-THIRD OF THE
DEMOCRATS DID NOT SHOW UP TO
WORK YESTERDAY BUT THEY STILL
GET THEIR PAYCHECK.
MORE THAN 50 MILLION AMERICANS
DID NOT HAVE A VOICE ON THE
FLOOR.
DEMOCRAT SIGNED A PIECE OF PAPER
THAT SAID THEY WERE PHYSICALLY
UNABLE TO COME TO CONGRESS BUT
CHARLIE CRIST WAS ABLE TO COME
EVEN THOUGH HE IS SOUND, SIGNED
THAT PAPER COME TO GO TO THE
LAUNCH ACROSS THE STATE.
SO HE LIED TO HIS OWN
CONSTITUENTS, HE LIED UNDER OATH
AND SAY FOR ONE MOMENT 231
YEARS, WE HAVE MET ON THIS.
THROUGH A YELLOW FEVER OF 73,
THROUGH THE CIVIL WAR, THROUGH
THE SPANISH FLU.
EVEN WHEN THE BUILDING WAS
BURNED DOWN IN THE WAR OF 1812,
9/11, WE SHOULD CONVENE, THE
CONSTITUTION SAYS WE SHOULD.
IT IS ONLY THE ABILITY OF
NANCY PELOSI TO TRY TO GET MORE
POWER.
HER OWN WORDS YESTERDAY ON THE
FLOOR, SHE SAID THIS IS AN
OPPORTUNITY COME EVERY CRISIS
IS.
SHE’S TAKING A CRISIS AS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO SECURE MORE POWER
FOR HERSELF AND ALLOW ONLY 20
PEOPLE TO CONTROL THE ENTIRE
FLOOR, THAT’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
THEY DON’T HAVE THE POWER AND
THE RIGHT TO DO IT AND ALL OF US
SHOULD AGAINST THIS.
>> Sandra: GOT IT.
AND IN TERMS OF CHENEY NOT BEING
OPPOSED TO IT, WHAT I MEANT WAS
SHE SAYS THERE’S DIFFERENT VIEWS
AND PERSPECTIVES AND SHE
UNDERSTANDS THAT.
AND WHILE SHE’S NOT OPPOSED TO
THOSE OTHER VIEWPOINTS SHE WANTS
MORE COOPERATION FROM DEMOCRATS
ON THAT.
NOW, FINAL THOUGHTS ON
NANCY PELOSI?
HERE SHE IS IN THE PULLING OF
THAT FIGHT IS ABOUT YESTERDAY.
>> THE FISA VOTE YESTERDAY, IF
WE DON’T HAVE A BILL THAT OUR
LIBERTY IS, OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES
ARE LESS PROTECTED.
>> Sandra: HOUSE IN SESSION
TODAY, ANY IDEAS AS TO WHAT
HAPPENS NEXT WITH THAT IF IT
DOES INDEED COME UP FOR A VOTE?
>> THE SPEAKER SOUNDED A LITTLE
LIKE WHAT SHE DID WITH
OBAMACARE, WE NEED TO PASS IT TO
KNOW WHAT’S IN IT.
THE BEST THING THE SPEAKER
SHOULD DO IS TAKE THE ADVICE I
GAVE HER JUST A COUPLE DAYS AGO,
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, TAKE A STEP
BACK.
IT WON’T BECOME LAW BECAUSE THE
PRESIDENT HAS CONCERNS WITH IT.
EVEN THOSE IN THE SENATE HAVE
CONCERNS WITH WHAT THEY WANT TO
DO SO WHY DON’T WE WORK THOSE
PROBLEMS OUT SO WE CAN MAKE LAW?
EVERY DAY WE FIND SOMETHING NEW
ABOUT FISA.
FISA IS ABOUT FOREIGN
SURVEILLANCE.
WHY ARE FINDING THAT PEOPLE
UTILIZE THE FISA COURT TO SURVEY
AMERICAN CITIZENS.
WOULD WE WANT TO GET TO THE
BOTTOM OF THAT BEFORE YOU PASS
SOMETHING?
AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT’S
CRITICAL AND WHY PEOPLE IN HER
OWN PARTY ARE SAYING THAT TO HER
AS WELL.
I KNOW SHE’S ABLE TO GATHER A
LOT OF POWER, ABLE TO HAVE 70
VOTES SITTING IN HER POCKET,
ABLE TO PAY DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS
OF CONGRESS NOT FOR SHOWING UP
FOR WORK WHEN THERE ARE
42 MILLION AMERICANS WHO WOULD
GLADLY WANT TO GO TO A JOB AND
WORK.
THAT’S A PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE
TODAY, SHE’S CHANGING THE
DIRECTION AND THE POWER OF THIS
CONGRESS AND IT’S NOT WORKING
FOR HER.
SHE’S NOT KEEPING THE PROMISES
THAT SHE MADE TO THE AMERICAN
PUBLIC AND THEY WOULD BE
DIFFERENT.
THEY WOULD FOCUS ON THE
INDIVIDUALS.
NAME ME ONE PROBLEM THAT THEY
HAVE SOLVED.
>> Sandra: THAT IS YOUR
