House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) cut off a press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday after getting an uncomfortable question about whether any Republicans in the House colluded with the Capitol rioters. Speaking to reporters outside the Capitol, the ranking House minority member — who has come under criticism from Democrats, Republicans, Capitol police officers, and many others for opposing the bipartisan commission on the storming of the Capitol — defended his stance, and accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of wanting the proceedings to be political.
