    1. Watch any episode of The First 48 and you’ll see they ask phone companies ALL THE TIME for phone records to help in their investigations. Crimes have nothing to do with freedom of speech. Maybe the Republicunts think we are all as stupid as they are

    2. @Kempo Guy understand they don’t have respect for law was my point, you and I would be in jail pulling the stunts they have.

    3. @William Stall except when he issued 1 in April and probably May, June, July and August. You lot make me laugh like you even care what happens to an Afghan American! Some have chose to stay because they have family ties, some have dual citizenship and have chose to stay. You don’t need to worry your little head they aren’t white Christians, you made it obvious how you feel about Muslims when you cheered Trump’s Muslim ban and the crap going round right now about the Afghans that have been rescued.

  1. They absolutely have the right to investigate, just like the GOP had the right to investigate Bengazi 66 times!!!!

    1. @Mike Judkins complete b’s. Not one of you watched the hearings. It’s hilarious how ignorant all of you are when it comes to criminality and our own government.

  2. This isn’t funny. These people are elected, and they are turning towards tyranny. Everything hangs in the balance.

    1. Aussie here…I’m horrified. How can America ditch the rule of law so easily and embrace fascism? Where are the charges against Trump? I don’t get it.

    2. @Piccalilli Pit

      Our Mr. neo McCarthyism was , by the way, just publicly telling the conservative Libertarian parts of the Tech billionaires at Google, Facebook, Palantir UBER etc., ( Who willingly conspired with “certain” Republican elected officials to rabble-rouse not just the Capitol Hill’s domestic terrorists attack aka ” the “Insurrection”) to continue to not comply, remain silent and start swiping the data that are able to prove the same Republican elites- conspiracy and direct iinvolvments in the Insurrection.

      They are all predictable boredoms for any actual investigator.

    1. @charles. . .Conservatives get sent to jail by the dozens for every single Democrat. I guess reading isn’t your thing.

    2. @Bingbong Bang lol, democrat abuse of power leads to conservative convictions over investigative process crimes which never would’ve existed if democrats didn’t abuse their power by engaging in witch hunts. “Show me the man. I’ll show you the crime. – Democrat motto. You think convictions make you the good guys, when in reality it proves democrats abuse their power and are corrupt to the core. But please. Continue to believe you support the good guys.

    3. @Emily Xiong As for global conspiracy, look no further than the Great Reset for proof of a global conspiracy. It’s not like they are hiding their global one government agenda.

  3. Let’s be real here: he’s threatening his prospective donors. Imagine thinking to yourself, “I’ll donate to Republican candidates so they can punish me for my past actions.”

  4. McCarthy is no better than Mo Brooks or the Karen’s in Congress. Well put: ” If you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas”.

    1. I prefer to think of it more like they are the two least dishonest Republicans in congress, but I see where you’re coming from.

    1. Under his thumb, is more like it. The orange turd protects no one but himself. Under his wing implies protection, to me. But I get your sentiments.

    2. Bet that doesn’t provide him with much security. If he’s even kind of observed DT, he must know he will soon be twisting in the wind.

  5. Wait did that guy literally said, “Plan out defence?”

    Why would they need to plan their defence when they supposedly had nothing to do with an insurrection?

    1. Because that fact hasn’t stopping Democrats from going on the offensive.

      Imagine if a jury said you were guilty of a crime because you have a defense lawyer.

      That’s your logic right now.

    2. @Scott Covert Really when have Democrats ever pulled a Bemghazi attack ? That strictly a lying cheating Republican thing. And what’s more, this clown McCarthy has admitted on tape that there was no basis to it at all and that there never was.

  6. Impeding a congressional proceeding, intimidating witnesses, is punishable under 18 USC Sect. 1512, and McCarthy is not immune to law.

  7. “It’s not they did something wrong”… definitely they did wrong and they want to hide it! Their benefactor is included period.

    1. He doesn’t want his records out because he called the president to ask him to stop the insurrection. He is not afraid he did anything illegal- he is afraid of the “base.” It’s absolutely pathetic.

    2. @Betsy Larcom It doesn’t matter in a sense. Because he just did something TOTALLY ILLEGAL UNDER 18 USC 1512. And the MORON did the whole thing in public.

    1. They don’t believe in the vaccine for humans. But they are willing to take Cattle De wormer lmaooo. Moo! Lmao

    1. Our Democrat party has turned into wimps, grow teeth or let the RepubliCONS ruin our country permanently! THEY WILL OVERTURN ELECTIONS OTHERWISE!!!

    2. @Robert Z yup. Mr. neo McCarthyism was , by the way, just publicly telling the conservative Libertarian parts of the Tech billionaires at Google, Facebook, Palantir UBER etc., ( Who willingly conspired with “certain” Republican elected officials to rabble-rouse not just the Capitol Hill’s domestic terrorists attack aka ” the “Insurrection”) to continue to not comply, remain silent and start swiping the data that are able to prove the same Republican elites- conspiracy and direct iinvolvments in the Insurrection.
