Kevin McCarthy said he would reward suspected co-conspirators Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene with better committee assignments if Republicans win back the House.
Video from McCarthy:
The commission they have now, they may have even more. Maybe they have better assignments. I think with Gosar, those are the ones he wants. Taylor Greene, she was only a freshman, I know she asked for others, she has the right to serve on committees. pic.twitter.com/JzAFVb5p8Y

McCarthy said at his press conference this week when asked about future committee duties for Reps. Greene and Gosar: “They will have commissions. The commission assignment they have now, they can have others. They may have better assignments. I think with Gosar, those are the one he wants. Taylor Greene, she was just a… freshman, i know she asked for it… others she has the right to sit on committees.”
McCarthy makes clear that violent coup plotters will be rewarded if Republicans win the house
Kevin McCarthy has no low point that he will not sink to in his quest to become the next Speaker of the House. McCarthy makes it clear. Democrats will be punished for enforcing the house rules, and the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar will be rewarded for violent extremist behavior and trying to help Trump overthrow the government.

The only reason Democrats had to remove Greene and Gosar from their committee duties is that Kevin McCarthy refused to act. Minority leader McCarthy endangered the House and the American people by failing to do his job, and now he plans to reward those who attacked democracy and threatened violence against other members of Congress with promotions for committee assignments.
Kevin McCarthy is ready to reward those who try to destroy democracy with more power in the House.
