Top Republican in the House Kevin McCarthy last week voted to overturn the election results, even after the mob invaded the Capitol.
Yet today: "Let's be clear. Joe Biden will be sworn in as the President of the United States in one week because he won the election."
"Some say the riots were caused by antifa, there's absolutely no evidence of that. And conservatives should be the first to say so." - @GOPLeader
>@GOPLeader places blame on Trump: "The President bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding."
But McCarthy will not vote to impeach...
McCarthy says Trump must: "accept his share of responsibility, quell the unrest, and ensure President-elect Biden can successfully begin his term."

So - how does he think that will happen?

@GOPLeader's answer: create a fact-finding commission and vote on a censure resolution.

.@jameshohmann's podcast The Big Idea made me cry 2x in 30 minutes with today's episode + last Wednesday's. James shared @LennyMBernstein's story inside a Wisconsin hospital fighting Covid + @cathyjfree's story about a Utah man who's helping feed the hungry. Links in thread.
Inside a hospital as the coronavirus surges: Where will all the patients go? @LennyMBernstein embeds in a Wisconsin hospital to tell its stories, both resilient and heartbreaking. washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/11…
Nurse Marybeth Pichler sat with a dying Covid-19 patient. “'He talked about how he used to farm and how he had dairy cows...' After about 25 minutes, the patient took off the mask that provided him high-flow oxygen and soon passed away." -@LennyMBernstein washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/11…

LET'S TALK about @lisamurkowski and her NO proceedural vote on #Kavanaugh. I look forward to hearing more from the Senator in her own words. In the meantime, some thoughts. She is a Republican, make no mistake. But she's also a Republican not beholden to Party. 1
In 2010 Murkowski won a WRITE-IN CAMPAIGN (you try remembering how to spell M-U-R-K-O-W-S-K-I) against a right wing Republican who had primaried her. He had GOP $$ and establishment support (including in Senate) as the primary winner. She won. 2
Since then Murkowski handily won her 2016 election, including with mainstream GOP voters, and isn't up for reelection until 2022. That's a long runway. 3
