House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy repeatedly lied during a news conference defending President Donald Trump from articles of impeachment, and viewers found his performance maddening.

The California Republican complained that the minority was not allowed to call witnesses during impeachment hearings, but then cited testimony from a GOP witness to defend the president, and misrepresented the findings of the Justice Department's inspector general.
