House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Monday warned that Democrats are looking to “capture” the government in the upcoming midterms elections so they can move to impeach President Donald Trump.
"People can underestimate us. They’ve done that before. And this is the same thing [House Minority Leader, California Democrat] Nancy Pelosi said in the time before," McCarthy said on Fox News’ "Fox & Friends."
"All they want to do is capture this government and try to impeach this president, or stop anything from happening, or raising your taxes. I think the American public is too smart for that."
He later questioned whether Democrats have made fighting the GOP "every step of the way" the focus of their campaign, asking, "What are they running on? That they shut the government down? That they fight us in every step of the way to stop our opioid legislation moving through, to help those who are addicted?"
When asked about the multiple GOP primaries taking place on Tuesday, McCarthy said he is "very confident that we can keep the majority," even though "history plays against us," in that the party that holds the White House has typically not done well in the midterm elections, at least since World War II.
