Schiff, Swalwell And Omar To obtain Boot From Committees As McCarthy Cleans House

Brand new House Speaker strips major Democrat lawmakers from committees citing national security issues.

Following the Monday passage of the home rules package, the next order of business will be “ populating” the chamber’s committees.

And after Democrats weaponized Nancy Pelosi’s gavel over the last two years – booting GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and John Gosar off committees over  QAnon wrongthink   and posting  memes   –   Republicans are usually set to return the favour , with McCarthy expected to boot  Reps. Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Ilhan Omar from their committees .

Democrats are expected to name Schiff and Swalwell to the Intelligence Panel, and place Omar on Foreign Affairs, according to  Punchbowl News , citing multiple Democratic leadership sources.

“ Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance, ” newly minted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told  Punchbowl . “ Schiff has humiliated too many times to the American public. He should not be upon Intel . ”

“ I actually made all [three] cases before. It’s not like it’s anything brand new … Remember, this is what Nancy Pelosi, this is the kind of Congress she wanted to have, ” McCarthy added.

Swalwell notably   banged an alleged Chinese spy   who assisted him fundraise in 2014. After an FBI briefing on the woman, the top Liberal said he cut most of ties with the woman – Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang.

In 2020 when the news broke, McCarthy called for Swalwell to become “ removed from Congress. ”

Schiff, of course ,   vehemently peddled the Russiagate hoax and played a large role in both impeachments associated with former President Trump   (and claimed there was ‘ more than circumstantial’ evidence that Trump colluded along with Russia).

When asked about losing his seat, Schiff told  Punchbowl   that McCarthy “ will adhere to the wishes of Marjorie Taylor swift Greene. ”

And the Somali-born Omar made anti-Semitic comments and  probably married her brother   in an immigration scam, according to the  Daily Mail .
