  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Kevin McCarthy Says Trump Bears Responsibility for Capitol Riots” – below is their description.

    House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy says President Donald Trump “bears responsibility” for last week’s storming of the Capitol by his supporters.

    McCarthy, a close Trump ally, says the president “should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

    But McCarthy also says he believes it would be a mistake to impeach Trump in such a short time frame. Trump leaves office on Jan. 20 when Joe Biden is inaugurated.

    The House is set to vote later Wednesday on impeaching Trump, accusing him of rallying the violent mob.

    McCarthy says “a vote to impeach would further divide this nation, a vote to impeach will further fan the flames, the partisan division.”

    The California lawmaker is calling instead for a fact-finding commission and censure resolution.
