McCarthy told other Republican lawmakers after the Capitol Hill uprising last year that he would suggest Trump’s resignation, according to an audio recording posted Thursday night by MSBC and the NYT.

This came when Trump attacked presenter Piers Morgan and accused him of tampering with promoting an interview to suggest the Republican leader had left the room.

Trump Jr Says He’s ‘With Obama On This’ About Big Tech

Donald Trump Jr, who is likely to meet with the committee on Jan. 6 in the next few days, took the opportunity to attack Democrats using former President Barack Obama’s keynote address on the dangers of disinformation.

On Thursday, Obama said it was necessary to rein in big tech companies in a bid to address the “weakening of democratic institutions around the world.”

“You mean doing exactly what Democrat-controlled Main Stream Media has been doing for decades!?! Yes. In fact, I’m with you on this one,” Trump Jr said in a tweet.

In his speech, Obama said: “It is not necessary for people to believe disinformation to weaken democratic institutions. Just flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage, just raise enough questions[…] that citizens no longer know what to believe.”
