Kevin McCarthy would do anything to win the race for Speaker of the House.
McCarthy held out on conservatives’ demands until the bitter end.
And Kevin McCarthy folded after Tucker Carlson hit him with one huge ultimatum.
Kevin McCarthy failed on ballot after ballot to win enough votes to become Speaker of the House.
As the week wore on and conservatives negotiated with McCarthy, Tucker Carlson issued his own proposal as to how McCarthy could finally secure the gavel.
Carlson explained that McCarthy could secure the gavel if he agreed to form a committee based on the 1970s Church Committee – which uncovered all sorts of sleaze and scandal at the FBI, CIA, IRS, and NSA – and have Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie chair the panel.
“Kevin McCarthy could put Thomas Massie of Kentucky in charge of a new Frank Church Committee designed to discover what the FBI and the intel agencies have been doing to control domestic politics in this country,” Carlson told viewers.
McCarthy must have been paying attention because in the final rules package that won McCarthy the hold out votes there were provisions to create a committee to investigate how the Biden administration weaponized the federal government against conservatives.
Massie then appeared on Carlson’s show to announce that he would serve on this committee.
“It looks like I will probably be on that committee, but I can’t say that I will run it,” Massie stated. The Congressman added he and others had been working to form their own “Church Committee.”
“Thank you for suggesting I should be on it,” Massie continued. “I don’t know if you are clairvoyant or just made the future happen, but it’s happening. We were making sure this committee wasn’t going to be fenced in and it wasn’t going to be a show committee. We wanted to make sure we have full jurisdiction.”
Massie told Carlson the committee had a wide berth to investigate any “three-letter agency.”
There is a lot to chew on here.
The CIA and FBI schemes to destroy Donald Trump with the Russian collusion hoax and the phony Christopher Steele dossier.
The IRS leaked private tax records to ProPublica to help make the case for Joe Biden’s multi-trillion dollar tax increase.
And the FBI will surely come under scrutiny for the stormtrooper raid on Mar-a-Lago as well as for targeting parents protesting Critical Race Theory and COVID mandates at schools as domestic terrorists.
The defining story of Joe Biden’s term in office is how Biden and the Democrats turned the federal government into a blunt instrument of destruction they can wield against their political opponents.
And now Republicans will get some answers.
