McCarthy Says Anonymous NYT Op-Ed Proves Existence Of ‘Deep State’

September 10, 2018 11:07 a.m.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) lambasted the author of the anonymous op-ed in the New York Times as a “coward” on Sunday, adding that it proved the existence of a “deep state.”

“Whoever wrote it is a coward,” McCarthy told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. “If you ever wondered is there a deep state? Is there somebody high in government that would hide behind media to work against the voters of America and create a constitutional crisis? It’s proven today that it is.”

McCarthy went on to blame the New York Times for publishing the piece to distract from positive economic news.
