House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was reportedly caught on hot mic saying he has “had it” with House Republican Conference Chairwoman and outspoken Never-Trumper Liz Cheney.
The hot mic moment came prior to an interview on “Fox & Friends,” during which he admitted House members are worried that Liz Cheney “can’t carry the message.”
His tone was harsher during the hot mic moments, according to a report from Axios — who reviewed the tape, but did not release it.
“I think she’s got real problems,” McCarthy told Steve Doocy off-air ahead of a live interview, Axios reports. “I’ve had it with … I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence.”
McCarthy on the hot mic also reportedly indicated he expects a vote soon to remove Cheney from her leadership position.
“Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place,” he continued.
Top Republicans have reportedly told Axios that they believe Cheney could be removed within a month.
State Senator Anthony Bouchard will be challenging Cheney in 2022 and cited her opposition to Trump when he announced his bid.
“A conservative state like Wyoming—which gave Donald Trump the nation’s largest percentage of the vote both times—should be electing one of the most conservative members of Congress. It’s time to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put taxpayers first. That’s why I’m running for Congress,” Bouchard previously told the Gateway Pundit.
