MSNBC says Kevin McCarthy should 'locked in a basement' for his defiance

Far-left "news" network MSNBC has declared that House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy should be "handcuffed" and "locked in a basement" for refusing to comply with the Democrats' anti-Trump Jan. 6 committee.

MSNBC contributor and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt suggested on the network Friday that McCarthy should be forced to testify by the House sergeant-at-arms.

"The House should use every power that it has at its discretion, including an inherent contempt power that could see the sergeant at arms handcuff and detain Kevin McCarthy in a locked basement office until he wishes to testify," Schmidt claimed on MSNBC.

"There is no matter before the country more serious than this and being a minority leader, being the leader of Republicans, does not immunize you either from your duty or from complying with lawful subpoenas." 

McCarthy hasn’t yet been subpoenaed by the committee.

He has, however, refused to comply with requests to testify.

The House minority leader refused a request from the committee this week to voluntarily testify.

McCarthy was called on to answer questions about communications he had with President Donald Trump last year while protesters were breaching the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

He said this week there was "nothing" he could provide to shed light on what happened that day. 

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was charged with contempt of Congress late last year for refusing to cooperate with the investigation.

However, it is unclear if anyone on the committee would take the same step with a congressional colleague.

Schmidt, who in the past worked on the Republican campaigns of former President George W. Bush and the late Sen. John McCain of Arizona, also called McCarthy "villainous" and "childlike."

During the interview with Nicole Wallace for "Deadline: White House," he claimed the lawmaker only thinks in the moment.

Schmidt’s own anti-Trump Lincoln Project has faced scandal in the last year: Most prominently, co-founder John Weaver was accused of online sexual harassment last year by a number of men. 

The group was also criticized for staging a fake white supremacist gathering at a Virginia rally for then-Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin prior to Youngkin's election win.

Youngkin denounced the Lincoln Project over the stunt.
