House rejects white supremacy, white nationalism after Steve Kings comments CNNPolitics


House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer was noncommittal Tuesday morning in a meeting with reporters on whether Democratic leadership would support a censure effort. Hoyer was asked if he thinks a censure resolution could open up a Pandoras Box where members on both sides of the aisle would be calling for censures over offensive speech. “The answer is yes,” he said, declining to expand on the thought. Hoyer applauded McCarthy and Republican leadership for blocking King from committee assignments. “Republicans have taken very strong action, which I applaud them for and I think they did the right thing,” he said. “I think theyre very concerned about their party being perceived as a Steve King party, frankly.” This story has been updated with additional developments Tuesday.
