House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy appeared on the Laura Ingraham show this week and made an explosive claim about Nancy Pelosi.
According to McCarthy, Pelosi held back a Coronavirus funding bill so that Democrats could use this politically against Republicans.
Here’s a partial transcript via FOX News:
MCCARTHY: Look, there’s only four left and he still can’t decide if he’s going to endorse Joe Biden. If there was any power to that endorsement, it would have happened today. It’s not going to matter anymore. And I think what you find with Obama. He sees that Bernie is going to win this thing, that Bernie has the momentum. This is where the Democratic Party has moved, a Socialist Democratic Party.
Look, how much politics they want to play. The dirty little secret. We have a Coronavirus. We have government funding that we need to fund this. You know what, Nancy Pelosi, the speaker did. She withheld the bill last week. You know why? So, the DCCC could run ads against seven Republicans.
INGRAHAM: How many people ran ads on the Coronavirus fundraising appeals?
MCCARTHY: I don’t know how many ran but they actually took the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, spent money, went into these seven Republican seats to campaign against them about the Coronavirus, when she’s the Speaker of the House. Instead of putting America first, she put her politics first and held the bill from coming to the floor.
INGRAHAM: But she said last week that this is the time for the parties to come together, Congressman.
MCCARTHY: She is politics all the time. That’s exactly what she did from the Powerhouse. And think of this, all those Democrats had an opportunity last week to denounce what Bernie said about Cuba. Not one of them voted against what he said.
Watch the video:
What a scam—Speaker Pelosi held up the vote on coronavirus funding so that her campaign team could run ads against Republicans for Super Tuesday.

That is absolutely stunning but sadly is also easy to believe.
And what are the chances that Pelosi will be asked about this by the liberal media?
