Events are forcing a likely end to House leadership for the Trump-hostile scion of a Republican dynasty.


Sweeping things under the rug has become something of a forte for Kevin McCarthy.

Six years ago, the Bakersfield, California Congressman was a vote away from the speakership, when John Boehner, now a cannabis lobbyist and wry memoirist, was forced from power.

He stayed on as party leader and has held on for grim death ever since.
