Glenn Kirschner: Kevin McCarthy’s latest legislative thuggery: tells DHS Secretary Mayorkas, “resign or be impeached”


November 23,2022

Representative Kevin McCarthy is prone to political bullying.

Recent reporting relates, “McCarthy Calls for DHS Secretary Mayorkas to Resign or Face Impeachment.”

McCarthy’s latest legislative thuggery is reminiscent of the threats he leveled approximately a year ago when he learned that telecom companies and social media platforms were cooperating with the January 6 House select committee’s investigation of the insurrection. McCarthy told the companies that if they cooperated, “the Republicans would not forget it.”

These kind of political threats represent a gross abuse of power and office.
