Kevin McCarthy: Dems More Interested in Subpoenas Than Solutions

Kevin McCarthy: Dems More Interested in Subpoenas Than Solutions

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Sunday lashed out at a Senate committee subpoena of Donald Trump Jr., saying Democrats are “more interested in subpoenas than solutions.”

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” McCarthy said Congress has to move beyond the recently ended special counsel Robert Mueller Russia investigation.

“This is a time that the country wants to move forward,” he asserted. “We want to move forward. We've got health care, we've got trade, we've got a crisis on our border. The Democrats are more interested in subpoenas than solutions.”

McCarthy added that the Mueller report was thorough enough — and ended with no charges against President Donald Trump.

“You had a Mueller report that had 40 attorneys,” he said. “FBI agents went to different countries, have more power than within Congress, the ability for grand jury and others, and they found no evidence. “

McCarthy said the issue of foreign influence in election is one the GOP has been working on “for a long time.”

“We were the ones that pushed [former President Barack] Obama, who ignored our concerns of what was going forward when he was president,” he said.

“But Donald Trump Jr. has already testified for more than 27 hours,” McCarthy said. “If you want to bring him back in because something [former President Donald Trump lawyer Michael] Cohen has said when he is in jail for lying and talking about a meeting he wasn't even in? No, I don't think that's right. 

“It's not going to change the outcome of what this investigation has already done and the power behind the Mueller investigation.”
