Appearing on Fox and Friends GOP leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Pelosi for destroying “official documents.”
McCarthy also argued “If anyone in America questioned that this impeachment is so political, it shows the animosity that she has.”
Newsmax reports when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, she destroyed an official document, not just a printout, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday.
“It’s not some printout,” the California Democrat told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “The president walks in and hands that to the speaker of the House and to the vice president. Those are the official documents. He signs those.”
But if there is anyone still questioning that Trump’s impeachment was “so political,” her action showed the animosity that Pelosi has toward him, said McCarthy.
“It’s sad, though,” he said. “She is, after the vice president, next in line to become president, and that’s the way she is acting.”
Meanwhile, the president never mentioned impeachment, and on Wednesday, “he is going to get acquitted for life,” said McCarthy.
“He talked about America, and you know, what he really talked about is the comeback to this country,” he said. “When I sit on the floor, and I have been in a lot of meetings that are private with the speaker and the president and others, we could have had DACA done … could have lowered prescription drug prices. But that’s the attitude [Pelosi] has.”
Per TCO, Donald Trump Jr cited a tweet by Carl Higbie that asserted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have broken the law by destroying an official government document.
FYI: @SpeakerPelosi destroyed an official government document. 18 US code 2071 states:
“Whoever, having the custody of destroys the same, shall be fined… shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
