[Ed. – Umm…good grief? If 2016 was the Year of Cutting the Crap, 2017 promises to be the Year of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.]
Jarred by the publication of a secret tape, House Republican leadership sources are concerned that unsuccessful Never Trump presidential candidate Evan McMullin secretly wore a recording device during a June 2016 leadership meeting, Axios reported Thursday afternoon.
One other theory floating around, according to Axios’ Jonathan Swan, is that Ukranian officials could have secretly left a recording device during meetings with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan earlier that day.
But the predominate theory is that McMullin wore a wire during a June 15 House leadership meeting. A tape from that meeting leaked to The Washington Post on Wednesday, revealing House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy joking that Donald Trump and California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher were on Putin’s payroll.
