BARTIROMO: Congressman McCarthy, you are the leader of this party. You are facing pushback, not just from the FBI withholding information, but the media as well. What are you going to do about it?
REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA): Well, first of all, what Devin says is correct.
What have we learned now? It's a very similar playbook. We are just now finding out four years later that the CIA did know that Hillary Clinton was making up the Russian idea with President Trump, that Brennan actually briefed President Obama, that they sent a memo to the FBI to Comey and Peter Strzok, and never told anybody in Congress or the American public.
Now we find right before the eve of an election that Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, money could be involved here, all the speculations of things we have heard before.
And, Maria, it comes down to one simple question. The American public deserves the right to know. And Joe Biden has a responsibility to answer these questions, which he's avoiding.
Before this election takes place, these questions need to be answered before the American public, because is the FBI -- did they have this computer? Did they know of this again? Are they repeating the same bad behavior as before?
And it is out in the public right now that China is trying to influence our election. That's what the FBI tells us. The most sophisticated country, the one that has the -- one of the largest economies coming after us, and they have a directive of what they want to do. They want to assist Joe Biden, exactly what big tech is doing as well.
