Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy bid farewell to Capitol Hill, warning his successor not to fear dissenters in the GOP and hinting at potential primary challenges for Republicans who voted to oust him.

McCarthy criticized Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, advised his successor Mike Johnson, and emphasized the need to address internal party issues.

“My advice would be, if he asked me, [is] to not be afraid of the motion to vacate,” McCarthy said of his advice to Mike Johnson. (Trending: Supreme Court Delivers Historic Ruling on AR-15s)

“They can’t do it again,” he said to Johnson. “You cannot govern worrying about them.”

“What happens is you become isolated in this job.”

“You have to spend more time with problem people than people who are making things good.”

The Republican conference must “fix itself,” he said.

“People study that type of crazy mind — maybe at the FBI,” he said in reference to Gaetz.

“Gaetz is now fundraising on that he’s going to be expelled,” McCarthy said.

“He’s doing everything he can to make sure [the report] doesn’t come down.”

He also suggested the possibility of funding primary challengers to those who voted against him.

“I’ve got a good chunk a money. I’ve got probably the best fundraising team out there,” McCarthy said.

“I want to find conservatives who want to govern.”

“Chaos doesn’t help us.”

McCarthy did not rule out returning to government service and endorsed former President Donald Trump.

He emphasized their positive but occasionally disagreeing relationship and previously questioned Trump’s strength as a Republican candidate for president.
