McCarthy calls on Pelosi to suspend impeachment inquiry

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to suspend the impeachment inquiry launched by Democrats.

In a letter sent to Pelosi on Thursday, the California Republican — who is one of President Trump’s closest allies and staunchest defenders in Congress — said the impeachment inquiry has lacked transparency.

McCarthy also said Democrats have failed to answer “basic questions” on the inquiry.

“I am writing to request you suspend all efforts surrounding your ‘impeachment inquiry’ until transparent and equitable rules and procedures are established to govern the inquiry, as is customary,” McCarthy wrote in his letter.
