    House GOP leaders have launched an internal review into how someone secretly recorded and leaked audio of a private 2016 leadership meeting in which Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) jokes about how Russia is paying off President Trump. SNIP Leadership sources suspect the leaker is former CIA officer Evan McMullin, who attended the June 15 meeting in the Capitol in his capacity as a top policy aide to GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.)

    Entrenched GOPe Show Their Cards – Construct “Border Adjustment Tax” To Oppose Trump’s America-First Agenda Anyone who believes Democrats own exclusive opposition to Donald Trump are completely ignoring the deliberate construct of the 2015/2016 republican primary. There are just as many -if not more- natural enemies within the Republican apparatus as there are within the Democrat group. “America-First” is antithetical to the UniParty.Again, prior to Donald Trump there was one party in Washington DC, “The UniParty”. President Donald Trump represented a second party, an independent approach toward legislative and economic priority. He was not a third choice, he was...
  • GOP Leader Breaks With Donald Trump On Suggested 35 Percent Tariff (McCarthy)

    WASHINGTON; If President-elect Donald Trump thinks hes going to impose a 35 percent tariff on companies importing goods, he might want to check with Republicans in Congress. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) suggested Monday that Republicans would not be in favor of imposing the 35 percent tariff on foreign goods that Trump proposed Sunday in a series of tweets. Trump may not understand how tariffs really work; it would be very difficult for the United States to impose them on specific companies that move jobs to a foreign country; or that Congress, not the president, sets them. But he...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday refused to back President-elect Donald Trumps push for a 35-percent tariff on companies that move operations abroad and then sell their goods back in the United States, saying corporate tax reform is the key to retaining American jobs. I think thats a better way to solve the problem than getting in a trade war over a 35-percent tariff, the California Republican told reporters.

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Congress isnt waiting for President-elect Donald Trumps swearing-in to move on the issue of immigration, saying the wheels are in motion on prepping legislation needed to build Mr. Trumps pledged U.S.-Mexico border wall. Mr. McCarthy said he has helped put a team in place so when were sworn in we are able to move the legislation needed to start building the wall. Mr. McCarthy also said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said earlier this week that Chicago will always be a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants, should focus on the security of his...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Sunday that the lower chamber is not planning further congressional investigations of Hillary Clinton. The agenda is going to be about job creation, its going to be about reforming and repealing Obamacare. Its going to be on infrastructure, McCarthy said on Fox News Sunday, adding that he would leave further inquiries regarding Clinton to law enforcement officials. Several House committees have investigated Clinton over her use of a private email server and her handling of the attack in Benghazi, Libya.

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy vowed Sunday that his Republican-led chamber will indeed repeal and replace ObamaCare, after Donald Trumps remarks that he would consider keeping certain parts of the health care law following his presidential election win. We will repeal and replace ObamaCare, McCarthy, a California Republican, said on Fox News Sunday. It has to change. McCarthy, the chamber's No. 2 Republican behind House Speaker Paul Ryan, spoke one day before Congress returns to Washington for a so-called lame duck session, which will include passing a budget to avoid a looming government shutdown and preparing for several of...

    Holding up a copy of the U.S. Constitution to make his point, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said that a Republican-introduced gun bill will prevent terrorists from obtaining weapons while not infringing on Americans due process and Second Amendment rights. There isnt a person in Congress that wants a terrorist to get a gun. But we also want to make sure that we do not undermine those ongoing terrorist investigations that law enforcement is conducting, Ryan said Wednesday at the Republican National Committee (RNC) in Washington. [] Ryan characterized the Homeland Safety and Security Act, which House Majority Leader Rep....

    The Donald can now say he tried to help the GOPe maintain the House majority, but the conservative base are speaking and it's beyond his control in case he gets pushback from Ryan and his Chamber of Commerce peeps. Of course, the Left and reprobates like Erik Erickson (Thanks Mods/Jim for pulling that thread, Redstate is dead to me) will spin it and say that Trump has no coattails or whatever, but they couldn't be more wrong. Trump's not a traditional politician. He's going to make these types of moves because it's good to get criticism from the base, which...

The 2nd District race featured the only two Congressional incumbents running against each other in an American primary this year. It garnered more national attention when Donald Trump endorsed Ellmers.

    Democrats shouted "Shame! Shame!," but seven Republicans switched their votes and defeated a measure to protect gay rights. The final vote was 213-212 after the chaos on the House floor. That was enough to defeat an amendment by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., aimed at upholding an executive order that bars discrimination against LGBT employees by federal contractors. Maloney and other Democrats were incensed. "They literally snatched discrimination from the jaws of equality," Maloney said. He said he had approached Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as McCarthy worked on GOP colleagues to vote against the measure. McCarthy told Maloney to...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has signed up to serve as a delegate for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump at this summers national convention in Cleveland. McCarthys move is notable in part because House Speaker Paul Ryan has said he is not ready to endorse Trump, even though he is the lone Republican remaining in the contest.

    On Thursday, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told reporters that Donald Trumps nomination would help Republicans running for office, not hurt them. McCarthy cited the fact that turnout in the first nine presidential primaries had risen this year from 2008, while Democratic turnout had declined. McCarthy used the example of the 7th District, where Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones is challenging two-term Democrat Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA), telling to the Sacramento Bee, I have big hopes that that one is going to be very competitive. Jones has made immigration one of his top issues: last October, after an...

    Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy met privately with Rep. Jason Chaffetz Wednesday evening to reiterate that he cannot proceed with any investigation that involves Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the meeting. The impetus for the gathering was a POLITICO story where Chaffetz, the chairman, of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was quoted as saying that a pending probe into government record keeping practices would not be "specifically trying to target the secretary, but when she creates her own private email system, she's ensnarled herself.” Presented with the quote before publication, House...
