Kevin McCarthy Caught On Hot Mic Making Scathing Admission

House Minor­i­ty Leader Kevin McCarthy (R‑Calif.) said Tues­day he’s “lost con­fi­dence” in Rep. Liz Cheney (R‑Wyo.) dur­ing a moment of can­dor caught on a hot mic, a tape reviewed by Axios shows.

What he’s say­ing: “I think she’s got real prob­lems,” McCarthy told Steve Doocy off-air ahead of a live “Fox and Friends” inter­view. “I’ve had it with … I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost con­fi­dence. … Well, some­one just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will prob­a­bly take place.”

The com­ments, made amid seem­ing cross-talk with Doocy, out­lined how the House con­fer­ence chair could be removed by a vote from the cham­ber’s Repub­li­can members.

McCarthy’s com­ments con­trast­ed from the near­ly 6‑minute, on-air inter­view where he told Doocy he’d heard mem­bers con­cerned about Cheney’s abil­i­ty to car­ry out her job as a par­ty leader.

“This is about whether the Repub­li­can Par­ty is going to per­pet­u­ate lies about the 2020 elec­tion and attempt to white­wash what hap­pened on Jan. 6,” Cheney spokesper­son Jere­my Adler said in response to McCarthy’s aired Fox inter­view. “Liz will not do that. That is the issue.”
