Rep. McCarthy Blasts Support For Impeachment Inquiry Into President Trump

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted congressional Democrats after a majority of left-leaning lawmakers said they support an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
In an interview Wednesday, the representative said “Democrats are trying to push impeachment without saying the word.” This comes after more lawmakers switched sides to support an inquiry, bringing the total number of lawmakers who support it to 114 with only four more needed to push an inquiry forward.
Impeachment has been a hot button issue since special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill last week, where McCarthy criticized Democrats for pushing it.

He had this to say during his weekly news conference following Mueller’s testimony:
“Why would you ever even bring up impeachment after yesterday’s hearing? …That should be put to bed. That is over. We watched it. We heard it. We’ve read it. What more can they make up? The only people that want impeachment are the ones sitting inside this chamber on the democratic side. The American public have made their decision. Poll after poll you see it.”
McCarthy says even if House Democrats get support for an impeachment inquiry in their chamber, the Republican-controlled Senate will reject it right away.
