In the latest leaked recording of the conversation between Liz Cheney and Kevin McCarthy, the Minority Leader stated he would tell Trump to resign on January 10, 2021.
“I think [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign,” McCarthy planned to tell Trump. “what he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it.”

Liz Cheney pressed McCarthy about whether Trump could choose to resign on his own, “Is there any chance? Are you hearing that he might resign? Is there any reason to think that might happen?”
McCarthy stated, “My gut tells me no,” he said. “I’m seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight…Um, from what I know of him, I mean, you guys all know him too, do you think he’d ever back away? But what I think I’m going to do, is I’m going to call him.”
The Minority leader added that he would appeal to Trump’s reason for the impending impeachment resolution.
“This, this is what I think; we know it’ll pass the House. I think there’s a chance it’ll pass the Senate, even when he’s gone. Um, and I think there’s a lot of ramifications for that.”
“We can’t put up with that,” he said. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”
Furthermore, the recording confirmed a statement from the left and was documented in an unreleased book called “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.”
McCarthy’s spokesman Mark Bednar stated, “McCarthy never said he’d call Trump to say he should resign.” McCarthy called the claims about this conversation false when The New York Times reported on them.
