Sen. Sasse questions mental health of fellow GOP Congress member

FOX NEWS – Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., said the QAnon conspiracy theory is “destroying the GOP from within” and called out House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and newly elected Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in an op-ed Saturday.
