Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy claimed that the latest Trump felony charges don’t concern him at all because the real problem is President Biden.
McCarthy said when asked by CNN’s Manu Raju if he is concerned about the latest felony charges against Trump, “No. What concerns me is that you have a sitting president that has a situation like this, and nothing’s happened.”
Raju said, “But they’re alleging he obstructed the investigation.”
Speaker McCarthy responded, “But the current president had a document as a senator. There’s no question that when you have a document as a senator, you have no right to it.”
Raju tried reality again, “You’re talking about construction versus handing the documents over. They are two different things.”
McCarthy kept going, ” Well, how. you’ve had it since you were a senator. You cannot leave the room with the document. If I ever had a document that would be beyond obstruction because I know I can’t take that document out of the SCIF. When he was a senator, he took a document. How many years is that, and there is no prosecution? So that’s what everybody sits back and says what are these two tiers of justice, right?”
