Morning Joe suggests Kevin McCarthy be 'arrested for stupidity' after latest  Jan 6th comments

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said House minority leader Kevin McCarthy should be "arrested for stupidity" for attacking the investigation into the Jan. 6 insurrection.

The California Republican dismissed the House select committee as partisan, after he and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell refused to take part in a bipartisan probe of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot aimed at overturning Donald Trump's election loss.

"Of course, the House minority leader Donald Trump calls Steve, Kevin McCartney, claims that Congress does not have the authority to ask for his records pertaining into the investigation into the Jan. 6 attack," Scarborough said. "It's a really good thing you can't get arrested for Washington, D.C. for stupidity. He and quite a few others would be dragged to the jailhouse this morning."

"First of all, it's not bipartisan because Mitch McConnell and the Republicans killed the bipartisan, bicameral investigation," he added. "So if he doesn't like the fact that it's not bipartisan, it's not like he wasn't warned a million times and Mitch McConnell wasn't warned a million times, if you kill a bipartisan, bicameral Jan. 6 investigation, well, good luck complaining about it later, and, secondly, saying that Congress can't subpoena my phone records or your records or his phone records is preposterous. They do it all the time."
