  • Ryan: I’m not saying Evan McMullin leaked the audio of our meeting, but …

    Last week, the Washington Post created a 90-minute wonder with a scoop: leaked audio from a meeting of House Republicans supposedly contained an admission from Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that Vladimir Putin had paid off Donald Trump. It became painfully obvious that McCarthy and several Republicans were joking during this exchange, but at least for a brief period of time, it was hot news. It did leave another question, though — who was the leaker? Hugh Hewitt asked Paul Ryan about the whodunit this morning, and whether he believed the rumor that former Capitol Hill staffer-turned-presidential candidate Evan McMullin engineered...

    The mainstream narrative would tell you that from 1950 to 1954, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy unjustly accused a wide variety of Americans of being communist spies, creating a hysterical witch-hunt that destroyed the lives of innocent people. What is the truth about Sen. Joseph McCarthy and McCarthyism? What are the modern parallels between mid-1950s McCarthyism and the events of today?

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump will not derail progress made in fighting climate change and creating clean-energy jobs, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency insisted on Monday in arguing "the inevitability of our clean energy future is bigger than any one person or nation." EPA chief Gina McCarthy said the world is "in a spectacularly different place today than we were when President (Barack) Obama took office," citing new environmental rules and actions to help create thousands of jobs in renewable energy such as wind and solar power.

    INDIANAPOLIS -- One of the two people killed in a crash early Thursday morning was a former FBI agent. The crash happened around 1 a.m., near the intersection of 16th and Illinois streets. A navy blue Tesla, headed northbound on Illinois Street, left the road, hit a tree and a building and caught fire. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was extricated and taken to Eskenazi Health, where he died. The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the driver as Casey Speckman, 27. The passenger was identified as Kevin McCarthy, 44. McCarthy was the president of KPMAC...

    Harold M. Ickes never forgets a favor, especially if he's the one who did the favor. So the veteran political operative made sure that, when the time was right, he alone would call Garry Shay, former chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party... And once Ickes started calling, he didn't stop until Shay said the words Ickes wanted to hear -- that he would support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August... the man in charge of Clinton's feverish effort to lock up superdelegates is Ickes, whose enthusiasm for...

Ellmers posted to her Facebook page a picture of her rival, Rep. George Holding, snoozing on a commercial flight. 'My opponent George Holding made sure to get another nap in after voting against North Carolina road projects, our family farms, disease prevention and even funding for our troops,' she wrote, deploying the hashtags 'low energy' and 'not for us.'

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has signed up to serve as a delegate for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump at this summer’s national convention in Cleveland. McCarthy’s 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.

    The Senate Indian Affairs Committee acted Wednesday to subpoena EPA administrator Gina McCarthy after the agency refused to provide witnesses to a field hearing on the EPA-caused Gold King Mine spill. Chairman John Barrasso, Wyoming Republican, and vice chairman Jon Tester, Montana Democrat, said they had agreed to issue the subpoena ordering Ms. McCarthy or assistant administrator Mathy Stanislaus to testify at the April 22 hearing in Phoenix, Arizona. Mr. Barrasso said the subpoena would be served on the EPA later Wednesday. Committee members blasted the EPA for its lack of cooperation in aiding the panel in its oversight role...

    Senate Republicans level criticism at fellow Republican Joseph McCarthy and take action to limit his power. The criticism and actions were indications that McCarthy’s glory days as the most famous investigator of communist activity in the United States were coming to an end. A Republican senator from Wisconsin, McCarthy had risen to fame in early 1950 when he stated in a speech that there were over 200 known communists operating in the U.S. Department of State. Various other charges and accusations issued forth from McCarthy in the months and years that followed. Although he was notably unsuccessful in discovering communists...

    Los Angeles (AFP) - President Barack Obama said the Republican Party has "gone off the deep end" with its messy failure to elect a new speaker of the House of Representatives. The Republican-controlled House was left in shock and disarray this week when Kevin McCarthy, the frontrunner to replace John Boehner, who has announced his resignation, suddenly withdrew from the race because of a revolt by conservatives. The challenge now is to find a consensus candidate who can soothe wounds and unite a fractious caucus. Obama addressed the drama at an expensive fundraiser at a private home in Los Angeles....

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Friday the reason why the mainstream media is not visibly celebrating Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)’s decision to drop his bid for House Speaker and the ensuing Republican Party implosion is because the perception is that conservatives have won a victory over Washington insider establishment individuals like McCarthy. Limbaugh told listeners: What it should tell you is that McCarthy obviously is a Washington insider, and his fall from grace as future Speaker obviously is bad news to the insiders or the establishment in Washington, both parties. And the reason for that is it is perceived...

All these fools were running around Capitol Hill yesterday like Chicken Littles, elbowing one another out of the way to get to their Fox liveshots. The sky is falling, the sky is falling! U.S. Rep. Peter King, RINO-NY, actually said yesterday, “People are crying.” Get a grip, pal. There are worse things than having nobody at the top. Having Barack Obama at the top comes immediately to mind. Last week, John Boehner decided to spend more time with his bartender....

    Rep. Renee Ellmers stood up in a private meeting of Republican lawmakers on Friday and thanked them for their "prayers and support" after they received “nasty emails” accusing her of having an extramarital affair with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, according to multiple sources in the room. She did not mention McCarthy (R-Calif.) by name, detail the content of the emails or provide any other information. Sources close to Ellmers and McCarthy say the accusation is unfounded, and assert that it is being spread by a discredited troublemaker. McCarthy has publicly denied that any personal problems were behind his stunning...

Little is known about the perpetrators at this point butt apparently there had been a confrontation between the two groups earlier.Early reports indicate that the wounds, while serious, do not appear to be life-threatening to the body.Even so the whole affair is enough to make a grown man cry.I sure hope they clear this mess on Capital Hill up quickly so we can get back to waging the war...

    Since House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., shocked his congressional colleagues early Thursday by withdrawing his name from consideration to replace John Boehner, R-Ohio, as Speaker of the House, Republicans have launched a relentless press aimed at convincing House Ways and Means Committee chair Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to put himself forward for the job. Fox News has learned that Boehner himself is imploring Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate on the 2012 Republican presidential ticket, to put himself forward for the top job in the House, largely because Ryan is one of the few unifying figures in the House Republican Conference.

    "Why not resign like Bob Livingston?”In the hours before House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) abruptly withdrew his candidacy to be the next speaker of the House, he was sent an email from a conservative activist threatening to expose an alleged affair with a colleague. The subject line: “Kevin, why not resign like Bob Livingston?” The email, sent just after 8 a.m. on Thursday, came from Steve Baer, a Chicago-based GOP donor known for mass-emailing conservative figures and Republican lawmakers. It was addressed to McCarthy and numerous others, including the personal account of Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), who conservative media...

    The reason Rep. Kevin McCarthy abruptly pulled his name from the running for the job as House speaker Thursday may be exactly as he explained – his untoward comments attributing a political purpose to a House committee investigating Benghazi. Or it may have been something else – as speculation swirled on Thursday about an alleged affair with another member of Congress. And if that was the case, one report is suggesting people look to the Obama administration for a level of involvement. Because the trail could link back to the administration’s Department of Homeland Security.

    Conservatives were ready to negotiate a deal with Kevin McCarthy to perhaps deliver the votes that would make him the next House Speaker when he suddenly dropped out of the race Thursday. "I was surprised as anybody that he pulled out," said Rep Raul Labrador, R-Idaho. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., another conservative, said he spoke to McCarthy just minutes before the announcement, but McCarthy didn't breathe a word about dropping out. But instead of getting a conservative pitch from McCarthy, he announced he wasn't the right person for the job. "We are just as stunned as you are," Mulvaney said...
