Report: McCarthy Will Oust Omar, Schiff, And Swalwell From Committee Assignments If GOP Wins The House

Kevin McCarthy, Republican House Minority Leader, says he will remove Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell, Democrat Representatives, from their respective committee assignments if the GOP wins back the House in 2022.

In an interview for Breitbart News, he issued this warning to his fellow workers.

McCarthy points to the aggressive actions taken by Democrats in policing Republican House members Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar, as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to seat two pro-Trump congressmen on the select committee investigating the Capitol riot as reasons for him to take action.

“The Democrats have created a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committees,” McCarthy said. “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 continued. “He will not be serving there.”

McCarthy Declares That He Will Reject Democrats From Committee Assignments

Kevin McCarthy’s assessment of Eric Swalwell echoes previous sentiments in which he’s said the California Democrat would be unable to get a security clearance in the private sector due to an alleged relationship with a Chinese spy.

A bombshell Axios report last December indicated that a woman by the name of Christine Fang “took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign” and that she interacted with the Congressman “at multiple events over the course of several years.”

Fang had served as a Chinese Intelligence operative with China’s Ministry of State Security.

Swalwell laughably suggested the only reason McCarthy is targeting him is because he’s such an effective member of Congress.

“McCarthy is targeting me for 1 reason,” tweeted Swalwell. “I’m effective.” 

Swalwell added, “If he thinks he’s silencing me, he’s not.”

This is the man best remembered for his love affair with Chinese spy. He was seen riding a camel on Qatari soil and passing gas live on television.

You have to go pretty far down the list of most effective lawmakers compiled by the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking before you run into Swalwell’s name.

Reported by McCarthy: McCarthy promises to remove Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee if GOP wins The House

Schiff, Omar Also

McCarthy also pledged to remove Adam Schiff, D-CA, and Ilhan Omar, D-MN from their respective committee assignments if Republicans win the midterms.

“Ilhan Omar should not be serving on Foreign Affairs,” McCarthy told Breitbart. “This is a new level of what the Democrats have done.”

He added Schiff as an additional player.

“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,” he said.

Schiff’s office responded by saying McCarthy’s actions would be “catastrophic” and added the required link to overturning election results as fear-mongering for their base.

“Allowing McCarthy to get anywhere near the Speaker’s gavel would be catastrophic — not just because of his propensity for falsehoods and smears, but because he will exist solely to do Donald Trump’s bidding — even potentially overturning the 2024 results,” a Schiff spokesperson said.

That’s right, the words “propensity for falsehoods” came from the office of the man who sold the media on Russia collusion for four straight years.

Since a while, the House Minority Leader has threatened to remove Democrats from their committee assignments.

Democrats voted to remove Rep. Paul Gosar from all committee assignments and censure him over a cartoon parody in November.

This is a parody cartoon.

Gosar (R AZ) was expelled from the Committee on Oversight and Reform and Natural Resources Committee.

In February, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R.GA) was removed from both the Education and Labor Committee and the Budget Committee because of ill-advised posts on social media. Prior to her election to office.

McCarthy saw both situations as excessive and promised to return both their assignments to committee if Republicans win 2022.

“They’ll have committees,” McCarthy vowed of Greene and Gosar. “They may have other committee assignments.”

In fact, he added, “They may have better committee assignments.”

Democrats can only reap the rewards of their labor if Omar and Schiff have to look on as Greene or Gosar are serving on more committees and they sit back and do nothing but wiggle their fingers.
