KEVIN MCCARTHY VOWS TO REMOVE ILHAN OMAR, ADAM SCHIFF, AND ERIC SWALWELL OFF OF SOME OF THEIR COMMITTEE ASSIGNMENTS
McCarthy may not have the strongest backbone of Republicans in office, nor is he often a particularly prominent attacker of radical Democrats like AOC or seemingly incompetent bureaucrats like Fauci.
While not as bad as RINO Liz Cheney or Mitch “Back Down on Every Issue” McConnell, McCarthy is generally less “ripped” than most conservatives would like.
But whether it’s because an election is on the horizon (likely) or because he’s had a surgically implanted spine (less likely), McCarthy vows to use his post-Wave power to stand up to the worst the worst Leftists.
Speaking to Breitbart News, McCarthy, according to Breitbart, said “he would strip Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) of their assignments on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of her committee assignment on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”
First, he tackled down Swalwell, who slept with a Chinese spy named Fang Fang, saying that:
“The Democrats have created a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committees
Never in the history [of Congress] have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee. But this new standard which these Democrats have voted for—if Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the private sector, there is no reason why he should be given one to be on Intel or Homeland Security. He will not be serving there.”
Next, he came out against Ilhan Omar, the Democrat who infamously described 9/11 as a day when “some people did something,” saying:
“Ilhan Omar should not be serving on Foreign Affairs. This is a new level of what the Democrats have done.”
Finally, McCarthy attacked Congressman Schiff, saying “You look at Adam Schiff—he should not be serving on Intel when he has openly, knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American public in the process and doesn’t have any ill will [and] says he wants to continue to do it.
We’re going to reshape—think about what happened in Afghanistan. Why did Afghanistan collapse so fast? Was the Intel Committee under Adam Schiff focused on impeachment and not on the safety of America? Why are people coming across the border that are on a terrorist watch list? What are they doing about it?
Their own members on that committee say it’s not happening when it’s true. We need to have an Intel Committee that looks at what’s happening around the world and keeps America safe. It should do exactly what it was created [to do]—overseeing of our agencies and others
We’re going to hold people to a higher standard in the process if they want to be on the Intel Committee and the training to be a part of it. Take the politics out of it”
Maybe he really wants to hold radical leftists accountable, maybe he just wants to be re-elected, or maybe both are true. Whatever the reason, it looks like McCarthy is preparing to fight the left, good for him.
