House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) indicated on FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” this week that if elected Speaker, he would uphold his vow to exclude Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Adam Schiff (D-CA) from committees.
“What are you going to do about these Dems. on such critical committees?” Bartiromo inquired. You’ve already discussed the removal of Ilhan Omar, Adam Schiff, and Eric Swalwell. “Are you going to deliver?”
“Yes, I will,” McCarthy replied. “That promise will be kept. Eric Swalwell will not be able to obtain a security clearance inside the public sector, as I have stated from the outset. Why would we possibly give him a security clearance and access to America’s secrets? As a result, I will not allow him to work for Intel. You have Adam Schiff, who has repeatedly lied to the American people. We will also not allow him to serve on the Intel committee. Look, we’re not going to allow Congresswoman Omar to appear on Foreign Affairs because of her anti-Semitic sentiments, but we’re also going to speak up to what’s occurring not just in the corridors of Congress, but also on our higher education campuses, where anti-Semitism is rampant. We’ll look into it and put a stop to it to ensure that America retains the freedom that we promised to keep, and we’ll stand up to it as we go forward.”
