Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, blasted House Republicans, claiming they operate like a “law firm with just one client,” and slams McCarthy, the “Spectator Speaker.”
Swalwell talked to Psaki
In an interview on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” the representative shared how many Republicans never accepted that Trump lost to Biden. Swalwell explained, “This is all about just putting Donald Trump in charge. The House, unfortunately, has become a law firm with just one client, Donald Trump.”
It never stops
The lawmaker continued, “This week, even as we are hurdling towards a shutdown, they’ll hold impeachment proceedings, which is just a continuation of the insurrection.”
January 6 never went away
The lawmaker told Psaki, “Many of [Kevin] McCarthy’s folks go to the January 6 prisoners and visit them to give them comfort and aid, and so they’ve never accepted President Biden as a legitimate president.”
Swalwell knows all about January 6
Swalwell, who sat on the January 6 House committee, added, “Donald Trump and McCarthy and the other pro-insurrection Republicans have never accepted Joe Biden as the president.”
Swalwell on McCarthy
The California Democrat called McCarthy, the House Speaker, a “Spectator Speaker.” He elaborated, “He may have the title, but Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz — they all share the job.”
The real issue
“And the problem is that McCarthy is only worried about his own job, and keeping it, and not the jobs of your viewers – the millions who would be affected if we don’t pay our troops if we don’t pay border agents if we don’t pay air traffic controllers,” Swalwell added,
House Republicans are failures
The California lawmaker said, “House Republicans are failures” because “McCarthy could simply bring forward the same legislation that Senator Schumer and McConnell have worked on in the Senate, that President Biden would sign, and be an adult and put the country first, and we would fund the government before funding run out.”
The shutdown is going to hurt people
Swalwell said that “it’s at the expense of American people,” adding that “people are going to feel the pain” of a shutdown in upcoming weeks.
Fail to govern
The lawmaker from California continued to share thoughts on House Republicans, “They failed to govern. And because they can’t govern, they failed to fund. And because they can’t fund on every core area where we need government, they’re going to fail to protect.”
Republican Burchett is ready to oust McCarthy
Tim Burchett, a Tenessee Republican lawmaker, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he would “look strongly at” expelling McCarthy from his position if he doesn’t pass the 12 appropriation bills required to fund the government.
What about the people?
Burchett shared, “They’re all talking about this promise that he made with Biden a year ago — what about the promise we made to the American public that we were going to be responsible Americans?”
Greene and Co. issued demands
Greene said in a speech, and later shared on X, “I will not vote to fund the government if Congress doesn’t do this: Impeachment Inquiry vote on Joe Biden
Defund Biden’s weaponization of government
Eliminate all COVID vaccine and mandates
No funding for the war in Ukraine.”
