Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has grown frustrated with what he perceives as the corporate media’s persistent dissemination of false information, and he is determined to hold networks like CNN accountable by exposing their alleged corruption.
In a Capitol hallway on Monday afternoon, a CNN reporter approached Kevin McCarthy, seeking his opinion on the second indictment of former President Donald Trump.

This is what you call an intelligent beatdown.

McCarthy said, “I have a real problem that your network actually pays people who did classified information and then lied to the American public to try to influence a presidential election, and then you put them on your network to give an opinion about the president. The idea of equal justice is not playing out here.”
According to McCarthy, the recent charges brought against former President Trump by Special Counsel Jack Smith further highlight the double standard in the Biden administration’s approach to holding politicians accountable.
McCarthy argues that while clear corruption by the current president and his party goes unnoticed, there is an ongoing effort to manipulate elections against Trump.
McCarthy argued, “In America, some of our greatest strength is equal justice, and today it shows that it is not. But what’s even worse upon this — this is a leading contender to run for office with an administration of a current president that has the exact same documents. Even worse from the aspect that there are documents that President Biden has that he had when he was a senator.”
Like McCarthy, many others have also observed a notable shift in recent years. Prior to the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022, a majority of Americans expressed their belief in the existence of a two-tiered system of justice in the United States.
Almost a year later, over half of the nation now desires consequences for the FBI, perceiving its use of power as a political weapon against the American people.
McCarthy not only acknowledged the Biden administration’s troubling trend of political persecution, which he considers a significant concern for all Americans, but he also highlighted that elected officials are taking notice and emphasizing the importance of equal justice for all, something he suggested CNN is not doing.
McCarthy emphasized that Republicans are dedicated to reinstating genuine justice within the American bureaucracy and vowed to “make sure that the legal system in America gets the blinders back on and people are treated fairly.”
