GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy was caught in a bald-faced lie on Thursday night after MSNBC host Rachel Maddow played a leaked audio clip showing the top Republican once said he’d recommend President Trump resign.

First, a book titled, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns claimed McCarthy told Liz Cheney on a January 10, 2021 phone call that he would advise President Trump to resign before his term ended.

After this claim went public on Thursday, McCarthy refuted the allegations, writing, “The New York Times’ reporting on me is totally false and wrong. It comes as no surprise that the corporate media is obsessed with doing everything it can to further a liberal agenda.”

Later Thursday night, MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow played audio of McCarthy telling anti-Trump Republican Liz Cheney he would in fact recommend President Trump resign ahead of being impeached.

“The only discussion I would have with him [Trump] is that I think this [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you [Trump] should resign,” McCarthy told Cheney.

Sleepy Joe Biden mentioned the controversy on Friday, using the leaked audiotape as an attack on the unity of the Republican Party.

This is solid proof for any Republican voters who were on the fence about McCarthy.

The top GOP politician is anti-Trump and has been riding on Trump’s populist wave while privately turning his back on the 45th President.
