Kevin McCarthy's staff were accused of hanging up on a DC cop who defended the Capitol from rioters

Source: Business Insider

Staffers for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy are accused of hanging up on a police officer who defended the Capitol on January 6 and who is campaigning for Congress to properly recognize what happened.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat, tweeted Wednesday an account from officer Michael Fanone of the DC Metropolitan Police, whom he said was "very upset" at being "hung up on" by McCarthy's staff.

"It's #PoliceWeek and for weeks Ofc. Fanone has made multiple requests to talk to @GOPLeader. He wants to show McCarthy what he experienced on 1/6. Today he was hung up on by McCarthy's staff," read the tweet.

Fanone, who had a heart attack during the riot and suffered PTSD after, has made multiple public appeals to get Congress to acknowledge the severity of the events of January 6.

4. Correction. He didn't "have a heart attack."

He was tazed in the neck by depraved, murderous insurrectionists until it CAUSED his cardiac infarction. It didn't mysteriously manifest out of nowhere. Words matter.

6. The QOP really doesn't support the men in blue.

Only those who they feel carry water for them. All others are collateral damage.
