Rep. Kevin McCarthy: Trump is the Most Transparent President We Have Ever Had
Rep. Kevin KcCarthy, the House Minority Leader, appeared on Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine and claimed that is nothing unconstitutional about the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“President Trump is the most transparent president we have ever had. He delivered a phone call, a transcript. No one has ever asked of that before, just to make sure that it’s clear and nothing in there is impeachable,” he said.
Top ranking Republicans seem to believe that because Trump released the transcript of the call without a subpoena, that clears him of any wrongdoing. His transparency and his honesty clear him of all charges.
Yet, President Trump provided evidence that he, as well as top administration officials, had pressured leaders of multiple foreign nations in ways intended to advance Trump’s personal and political interests.
