According to a new report from The Hill, at least four Democrats are slated to be booted from their committee assignments if the GOP take back the House next year after 2022 midterm elections.
This comes after Democrats stripped Reps. Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene from assignments.
McCarthy warned Democrats “will need the approval of a majority to keep those positions in the future.”
The report states the 4 Democrats likely to be booted are:
Rep. Maxine Waters:
Per the report “In 2018, Waters urged people to confront Trump administration officials in public spaces and “tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere” over policies that resulted in separating migrant families. And the year before that, Waters told a crowd that she would “go and take out Trump tonight.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar
Omar has faced backlash for her anti-semitic tweets and rhetoric, some of which shea has now deleted.
Rep. Eric Swalwell:
Eric Swalwell has faced criticism for his relationship with Chinese spy Fang Fang. Per the report “Republicans forced a procedural vote on a resolution in March to remove Swalwell from the Intelligence panel, but it was rejected along party lines.” Fang reportedly took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 reelection campaign.
Rep. Adam Schiff
Rep. Adam Schiff aggressively promoted the Steele dossier alleging Trump-Russia ties, some of the claims which have already been discredited. “Think about everything that dossier put this country through for two years based on fabricated evidence,” McCarthy said. “And yet the Democratic chairman says, ‘I don’t regret it.’ Why? Rules for thee but not for me.”
