Crooked Lawmakers Expelled From Congress
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy finally formally rejected Democrat Reps. Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Eric Swalwell from continuing to serve on the House Intelligence Committee.
McCarthy’s rejection of both Swalwell and Schiff comes after a two year battle between the Republicans and Democrats over who is qualified enough for these positions.
According to The Hill, Democrat House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries was begging Speaker McCarthy to let both Schiff and Swalwell stay on the Intel panel however McCarthy wasn’t allowing it.
McCarthy insisted that bother Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell’s previous actions proves to him that they are both unfit for holding their positions due to concerns about national security.
“In order to maintain a standard worthy of this committee’s responsibilities, I am hereby rejecting the appointments of Representative Adam Schiff and Representative Eric Swalwell to serve on the Intelligence Committee,” McCarthy wrote to Hakeem Jeffries.
Republicans are just giving Democrats a taste of their own medicine to be fair. In 2021 when Democrats had House control, they threw the first stone by voting to remove GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) from their committees.
“This is not not anything political. This is not similar to what the Democrats did,” McCarthy later told reporters.
