House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is calling on House Democrats to not abuse their position of power by spending all their time with investigations into President Trump.
During a press conference Wednesday, McCarthy told reporters the House would never give up it’s oversight role, but the country is too great for such a small vision of just investigations.
The GOP leader said the probes should come to a close in order for the country to focus on solving bigger problems going forward.
This comes after President Trump suggested there would be no legislation if there is investigations.
“An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations,” he stated. “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation — it just doesn’t work that way!”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to the president’s comment by calling it a threat. McCarthy called Pelosi’s remark and pending investigations “purely political.”
