The House Republican leader dismissed Democratic outrage at President Trump’s Monday night tweet denouncing the harsh sentencing guideline proposed by prosecutors for Roger Stone, one of the president’s longtime allies.

“There's no issue here,” Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, told reporters Thursday. “It's just like everything else that the Democrats want to play. They do not have facts. All they have is a mission to impeach. And this is all they continue to drive. When the rest of America would like to move on from their nightmares they put us through. ... Let's start working on the issues that America cares most about.”

Democrats accuse Trump of using his power to influence the actions of the Justice Department improperly.
