Rachel Maddow leaked a private phone call on her show on Thursday night of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy with Trump-hating lunatic Liz Cheney on January 10, 2021.
On January 10, 2021, Kevin McCarthy spoke with several GOP House leaders including Liz Cheney who was third-in-line in the House Republican Caucus at that time.
During the call, McCarthy told Liz Cheney that he would counsel President Trump Trump to resign.
From the call:
Kevin McCarthy: “I think [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you (President Trump) should resign… What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it.”
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?”
Jonathan Martin, national political correspondent for The New York Times, joined Rachel Maddow about to discuss his new book with New York Times colleague Alex Burns. Marin told Rachel Maddow that Kevin McCarthy wanted Twitter to suspend his fellow Republicans from their platform.
Here is Jonathan Martin tonight with Rachel Maddow.
For the record — Kevin McCarthy has posted numerous tweets condemning Twitter censorship.
While pushing for it on his fellow party members!
Companies like Facebook and Twitter have special protections in something called #Section230. But Big Tech is abusing those protections and choosing to censor Americans with different political views.
It is time to #Scrap230 and start over. pic.twitter.com/IaX8AZCJ9N

The President tweets that people should stop breaking the law and Twitter moves to censor him.
The left is uncomfortable that in a vibrant democracy, citizens have a right to hear directly from their President and decide for themselves what to think about it.#StopTheBias!
