House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) continued to criticize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats for their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, saying millions of American people are being silenced by their abuse of power.
“Every American lends their voice to their elected Representatives in Congress, but millions of Americans are being silenced right now as Speaker Pelosi abuses her power for political purposes,” McCarthy wrote on his Facebook on Saturday morning, Nov 2.
Pelosi unilaterally announced the inquiry on Sept. 24 following an allegation from an anonymous whistleblower.
McCarthy stepped up this attack one day after the Democrat-led House passed a rules package for their impeachment inquiry of the president, with all 196 Republicans voted against the resolution.
McCarthy criticized the speaker after the vote, saying, “It should not be Nancy Pelosi and a small group of people that she selects that get to determine who is going to be our president.”
On Saturday afternoon, McCarthy tweeted the map, lashing out at the group of Democrats for trying to pull down the duly-elected president.
“63 million Americans put President Trump in office. Now 231 Washington Democrats are trying to reverse the results of the 2016 election,” McCarthy wrote.

The Republican lawmaker had earlier complained that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is the first one “in modern history authorized by members of only one party.”
McCarthy on Saturday also shared a speech to the Ripon Society, in which he said, “Democrats care more about tearing the president DOWN than they do building America UP.”

McCarthy urged the Democrats to “Let THE PEOPLE choose the next leader of the free world. Stop diluting our democracy by allowing politicians to interfere in elections from their bubble in Washington, DC.”
