House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) didn't hold back on Wednesday after Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) met with QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) but refused to act to stop her behavior.
"After several conversations and literally running away from reporters, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA), " the statement began referring to McCarthy as a member of the Q Party, "made clear that he is refusing to take action against conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. As a result, the House will continue with a vote to strip Greene of her seat on the esteemed House Committee on Education & Labor and House Committee on Budget. McCarthy's failure to lead his party effectively hands the keys over to Greene — an anti-Semite, QAnon adherent and 9/11 Truther."
Pelosi went on to call McCarthy "cowardly" and noted he was breaking with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and the GOP Jewish Coalition.
