Kevin McCarthy, a senior Republican in the House of Representatives, rejected an offer to speak to an elected committee investigating the riots at the Capitol, calling it an “illegal” political operation.

The Republican minority leader issued a statement Wednesday night after the committee invited him to talk about a phone call he made to former President Donald Trump during the uprising and urged him to quell the violence. A few days later, McCarthy said the former president would “take responsibility” for the riots.

The panel, chaired by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, also aimed to ask McCarthy about his relationship with then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Medous.

McCarthy said the committee lied about the content of the documents passed and “disrespected individuals in Congress for exercising their constitutional right to use litigation.

McCarthy is said to have made a phone call to then-President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021 during the riots at the U.S. Capitol.

“And now he wants to interview me about public statements told to the whole world and personal conversations that are not remotely related to the violence at the Capitol. I have nothing else to add,” McCarthy, 56, wrote.

The California Republican reprimanded him after he said he was open to meeting the committee last year, accusing Pelosi and his cousin of not working “in good faith” and “playing politics,” after he denied his choice to be on the panel.

“This committee is not conducting a legal investigation because Speaker Pelosi has taken an unprecedented step to deny Republicans the membership I mentioned. It does not serve any legislative purpose, ”he wrote on Wednesday.

The chairman of the elected committee said last week that there would be an official offer to former Vice President Mike Pence as members continue to investigate the violence that stopped certifying the 2020 presidential election.

Former Vice President Mike Pence will be asked to volunteer to appear on the House Electoral Committee.

On January 6, the committee requested or sent invitations to many key members of the former administration.

Steve Bannon was indicted by a federal grand jury in November for refusing to comply with the requirements, and the House voted to hate Meadows for ignoring the deposit in December.
