Must Watch: Biden Campaigned On Unifying Congress; This Proves He Not Only Lied, But Is Dividing It Further

For a man who appealed to the American people the night before the 2020 election saying his 40 years in Congress meant he was respected by lawmakers and would bridge the divide that has stalled Congress for so long, Joe Biden seems to be less a unifier and more a divider.

In fact, Biden has refused to work with Republicans in both houses, and astonishingly, according to one senior lawmaker, it is virtually impossible to get Biden on the phone even in times of crisis.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Fox News this past Thursday the only time President Joe Biden “actually took my call.” He added that calls on urging current matters have fallen on deaf ears in the White House, and in some cases, he even tried going through the main switchboard to hunt down the never present President.

Biden only took McCarthy’s call during the wild Afghanistan withdrawal; he told Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino on America’s Newsroom.

“I called the basic public switchboard to ask to talk to the President. The White House then called to wonder — was it really me calling?” he said. “That was the one time the President actually took my call.”

He explained that the President has been reluctant to work with Republicans in the legislative branch. According to McCarthy, calls regarding issues such as Title 42 and the baby formula crisis have gone unanswered.

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers allied with former President Donald Trump were subpoenaed by the Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot, the panel said Thursday.

The move signaled the first time the bipartisan investigation has issued subpoenas to sitting members of Congress. The dramatic step came less than a month before the Committee planned to kick off a series of public hearings.

Along with McCarthy, the other Republican House members whose testimony is being sought under subpoena are Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and Pennsylvania’s Scott Perry.

All five Republicans had previously refused the panel’s requests to cooperate with the investigation voluntarily. The Committee tells the lawmakers in Thursday's letters: “You declined voluntary cooperation, and we are left with no choice but to issue you a subpoena.”

“The Select Committee has learned that several of our colleagues have information relevant to our investigation into the attack on January 6 and the events leading up to it,” said the Committee’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss, in a press release.

“Before we hold our hearings next month, we wish to provide members the opportunity to discuss these matters with the Committee voluntarily. Regrettably, the individuals receiving subpoenas today have refused and we’re forced to take this step to help ensure the committee uncovers facts concerning January 6,” Thompson said.

The Committee is investigating the events of January 6, 2021, when a violent mob of Trump supporters broke through police lines and stormed into the Capitol building. The riot forced lawmakers to flee their chambers and temporarily stopped Congress from confirming President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory over Trump.

McCarthy in January rejected the Committee’s request to provide information related to the probe, saying he had “nothing else to add.” The House minority leader, who hopes to become the legislative body’s speaker after the midterm elections, initially said Trump bears responsibility for the riot but has since resumed his vocal support for the former President.
