House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced on Wednesday night that he will not cooperate with the January 6th committee, saying it was not ‘conducting a legitimate investigation.’
‘This committee is not conducting a legitimate investigation as Speaker Pelosi took the unprecedented action of rejecting the Republican members I named to serve on the committee. It is not serving any legislative purpose,’ he said in a statement.

Earlier Wednesday the panel, which is investigating the origins of the January 6th MAGA riot on Capitol Hill, asked McCarthy to voluntarily appear before its members to discuss the ‘heated’ conversation he had with then-President Donald Trump on the day of the insurrection.
McCarthy said he had made enough public statements on that day to satisfy the committee’s needs.
‘It wants to interview me about public statements that have been shared with the world, and private conversations not remotely related to the violence that unfolded at the Capitol,’ he said. ‘I have nothing else to add.’
