When McCarthy was questioned about the 1/6 Committee acquiring his mobile phone data, he stated, “I have not heard anything but this is a pick committee that is for the very first time in background is not bipartisan and Nancy Pelosi, picks who can be on this committee and what they’re hoping to do, they are leaving out two principal details, why were we so sick-prepared on January 6th and how do we make certain we will hardly ever be in this situation once again? It is purely politics. Congress does not have the right to go soon after mine or your phone selection information. “

McCarthy was not telling the real truth on many counts. There are Republicans on the 1/6 Committee, so it is bipartisan, and Congress has sturdy constitutional grounds many thanks to the Supreme Courtroom ruling that congressional subpoenas for Trump’s fiscal data were being legitimate.
