Democrats Whine About McCarthy Planning To Boot Several Wackos From Committees

What is it that Democrats keep saying? Oh, right, “elections have consequences”

McCarthy’s planned expulsions of Intel Democrats prompts howls

A GOP promise to expel two Democrats from the House Intelligence Committee would dramatically escalate partisan warfare over panel assignments, potentially ending the intelligence career of Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) while increasing fears that the new majority intends to trample on minority rights.

The vow by Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who is busily seeking support for the Speakership in the new House, would diminish the power of two of the most vocal critics of former President Trump in Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) just as the former president has launched a reelection bid.

It is drawing howls of protest from Democrats and also comes as McCarthy promises to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Why would he want them gone?

McCarthy has accused Schiff of lying to the public, both about President Trump’s ties to Moscow and Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine. And he’s gone after Swalwell for his ties to a Chinese spy who had targeted California politicians.

“Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector. Why would we ever give him a security clearance in the secrets to America? So I will not allow him to be on Intel,” McCarthy told Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo.

“You have Adam Schiff, who had lied to the American public time and again,” McCarthy continued. “We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either.“

Has Schiff ever released the information he promised multiple times to release that would show Trump colluded with Russia in 2016? No. Swalwell also stated he had evidence. And, yeah, the whole Fang Fang stuff.

Omar, a former Somali refugee who is one of three Muslims in Congress, is frequently critical of the Israeli government on issues of human rights. Omar’s detractors, including McCarthy, say her comments have at times crossed a line into antisemitism.

Her comments are pure Jew and Israel hatred. There’s no doubt about that. She fully embraces the extremist Muslim viewpoint about Israel and Jews.

The removals, which still require approval of the full House, would mark a sharp escalation in the impassioned partisan debate over who controls the levers of power when it comes to committee assignments — and what sorts of behaviors merit expulsion. Typically, party leaders assign committee seats to their respective members independent of the opposing party.

The GOP has control. They get a say. Pelosi and her Comrades out their pet Republicans, like Cheney and Kinzinger, on the J6 partisan inquiry committee, and removed Republicans from others. Welcome to Politics 101. McCarthy should go scorched earth on Democrats and their committee assignments.

    The democommies are all liars..this is how they stole the election (at least part of it).

    I was curious how the New York Post would cover the “confirmation” yesterday of its two-year old reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Steven Nelson’s story supplies what might be an air quote in the headline: “CBS ‘confirms’ Hunter Biden laptop is real 769 days after Post broke story.” Nelson does a good job, but there is so much more to be said.

    Nelson apparently reserves the derision that should be directed at CBS News to Post columnist Miranda Devine. Devine of course covered the Biden laptop story for the Post, experienced the suppression of the story in the immediate aftermath of publication, and wrote a book about the story well before CBS News got around to “confirming” it. CBS News might want to ask Devine for comment.

    CBS News might also want to ask its own Lesley Stahl for comment. See my October 2020 post “This is 60 Minutes.”

    Or it might want to ask the deep state 51 brought to us by Politico and former intelligence officials for comment. They were instrumental to the suppression of the story.

    Or it might want to ask President Biden for comment. He reiterated the bald lie of the deep state 51 in debate with President Trump.

    In the meantime Devine refers us to Sohrab Ahmari’s American Conservative column “Hunter Biden’s laptop is still real.”×900

    Perhaps “What goes around, comes around,” might be better. Speakess Pelosi and the Democrats kicked Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene off all committees, so they set the standard. Incoming (?) Speaker McCarthy is actually going at it more lightly, planning to kick the three reprehensible Representatives off one committee each.

    I remember Malcolm Jewell, one of my political science professors, noting that, in competitive elections, the Republican and Democratic nominees are virtually guaranteed 40% of the vote each, and the only contest was for the 20% in the middle. Mrs Greene’s opponent took only 34.1% of the vote, meaning that, under Dr Jewell’s definition, he didn’t even reach the threshold of being a serious candidate. 65.9% of Mrs Greene’s constituents apparently thought enough of her to cast their ballots for her.

    If this is true… “The removals, which still require approval of the full House,..”

    nothing will happen and McCarthy is just BSing us.
