House leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) says if he gets the gavel, he’s making some changes —specifically he wants to kick radical Democrats off of House committees. McCarthy has named Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) as top of his list to get the boot.
From The New York Post:
“One thing I said from the very beginning, Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector,” McCarthy, 57, told host Maria Bartiromo, referencing the Bay Area representative’s alleged relationship with a Chinese spy.
“Why would we ever give him a security clearance in the secrets to America? So I will not allow him to be on Intel,” he said, a year after the GOP leader called on Democrats to remove Swalwell from the powerful House Intelligence Committee.
The congressman then took aim at Schiff, saying the Jan. 6 select House committee member “had lied to the American public time and again.”
“We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy also said he would follow through on promises to remove pro-Palestine progressive firebrand Omar from her leadership position.
“And you — look, Congresswoman Omar, her anti-Semitic comments that have gone forward. We’re not going to allow her to be on Foreign Affairs,” he said.
The comments followed the Republicans narrowly regaining the majority in the lower chamber during the midterm elections.
