WATCH: Sen. Duckworth says McCarthy “essentially violated his oath of office” by “standing with the enemy of the Constitution”

Appearing on CNN, Illinois Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth was asked by Anderson Cooper “Looking at the picture of Kevin McCarthy down at Mar-a-Lago today gripping and grinning with the man who promoted the attack on the Capitol, praised the attackers even after the fact, what does that meeting and that picture say to you?”

“It tells me that he stands with someone who basically incited insurrection as opposed to standing with our Constitution,” Duckworth replied.

“He has essentially violated his oath of office that he took when he was sworn in. That is to protect and defend the Constitution. Instead, he’s now standing with the enemy of the Constitution,” she added.
