“Did you also be fair and equal and where you looked at — Raskin did the same thing? Bennie Thompson, who’s a ranking member and was the chair. These individuals were chair in the Democratic Party.” McCarthy shot back after Brennan tried to interrupt him.
“I’m asking you as leader, Kevin McCarthy’s House, why you made these choices? These were your choices.” Brennan retorted.
“Yeah they’re my choices, but they’re the conference choices. But I’m also asking you, when you look to see just Republicans, Democrats have done the same thing. So maybe it’s not denying. Maybe it’s the only opportunity they have to have a question about what went on during the election. So if you want to hold Republicans to that equation, why don’t you also hold Democrats? Why don’t you hold Jamie Raskin? Why don’t you hold Bennie Thompson, when Democrats had appointed them to be chair? I never once heard you ask Nancy Pelosi or any Democrat that question when they were in power in the majority, when they questioned.” McCarthy said.
