4 GOP Lawmakers Targeted By McCarthy in Newly Leaked Audio

Newly leaked audio recordings of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reveal that he staunchly criticized some of his colleagues in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot.

The unearthed comments have landed McCarthy in hot water with his contemporaries, with some questioning his leadership.

Here are the four GOP lawmakers that McCarthy specifically called out in the recordings, taken from a call with House GOP leaders on Jan. 10, 2021:

1. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)

McCarthy said Gaetz’s remarks were “putting people in jeopardy.”

“He [Gaetz] doesn’t need to be doing this,” McCarthy said. “We saw what people would do in the Capitol, you know, and these people came prepared with rope, with everything else.”

2. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL)

At the rally that preceded the riot, Brooks said “today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.”

“You think the president deserves to be impeached? Well his comments, that’s almost something that goes further than what the president said,” McCarthy said on the call.

3. Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL)

The GOP leaders on the call expressed concerns over tweets Moore wrote in the wake of the Jan. 6 incident.

“Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away too?” McCarthy said.

4. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

McCarthy and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) discussed remarks Gohmert made in the lead up to the incident.

“And Louie said, like, we need to fight or something, right? Didn’t he say something a couple days out that was horrendous?” McCarthy said.

“There was something like that, yes. It was incendiary,” Scalise said.

After discussing the comments from both Brooks and Gohmert, McCarthy said, “Our members have got to start paying attention to what they say, too, and you can’t put up with that type of sh*t.”

    Why was Liz Cheney the stinking RINO traitor not listed??? Hopefully, WY voters will DO THE RIGHT THING and bounce her out of office.

  2. Kevin is walking the RINO walk, needs to be relegated to background, and not any leadership roles. Republicans need to expose their RINO’s and demote them. They know who they are and need to get this done right now.

  3. 2WarAbnVet says:

    All noted are Conservatives! No wonder the stinking RINO targets them.

  4. Mark says:

    It is pretty obvious that if McCarthy becomes speaker of the house we will have another Paul Ryan establishment rino in charge of things.

  5. Carolyn says:

    Because Liz Cheney is a RINO like McCarthy. all of the ones listed are Conservatives. Only Suprise was that Madison Cawthorn was not on list.

  6. bob says:

    If the Republicans re-take the House and Senate in Nov. ,,,,,, every Conservative should contact their own congressman and Senators in their state and DEMAND that inbred , Pincha , butte plug using degenerate , d!ckhead RINOS McCarthy and McConnell do NOT become Speakers for OUR party !!!!!

  7. Lisa says:

    I don’t WANT this man to be speaker, he is just like paul ryan and boner

  8. JJP says:

    McCarthy is from California. Of course he will talk like this. But hey, House Republicans are just stupid enough to elect someone from California to be Speaker, just like they elected someone from Wisconsin, another Blue State, to be Speaker. It’s time for someone from real America, like Texas or Florida to be Speaker of the House!

  9. Kathy says:

    McCarthy is part of the swamp. He should never become Speaker of the House. He is RINO masking himself as a Conservative. Nothing will change if we allow him to become Speaker.

  10. Jim says:

    Those four would be the ones to support to take back America. McCarthy has proven himself to be a self-serving, two-faced RINO that is more concerned with maintaining the status-quo (The Swamp) than serving the needs of the American people.

  11. Gail says:

    Republicans are walking a thin line. That doesn’t mean we want a democrat . We don’t want them anymore than we do democrats. And those that are pretending to work for America Which is who pays them By the way ! We want gone as well . These four work for Americans! ! It appears that McCarthy finally revealed his entire true self Those who fight for us are his targets. Liberals /NAZIS prefer him to continue to control So the democrats will be able to continue to destroy. I am sick of putrid politicians We need more of these people instead of those like McConnell and McCarthy ., Graham
    It’s amazing they are all elected Yet they have this level status ranking. Its time to clean out the democrats and rinos Matter of fact the entire government is full of his kind.
    Get rid of politicians and get real Americans

  12. Ben says:

    I’m proud of my fellow Alabamians. 2 of 4/50%!! Stand firm.
