McCarthy says Swalwell should be removed from Congress over Chinese Spy controversy

Appearing with Laura Ingraham, House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy suggested that Rep. Eric Swalwell should be removed from the House Intel Committee and Congress upon reports he was targeted by a suspected Chinese spy.

McCarthy wondered if Pelosi knew about Swalwell being targeted and said “Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself. Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the committee? We have our Sen., Dianne Feinstein, for two decades, the personal assistant, that hear all the private phone calls in the car and others, a Chinese spy. Why did the Democrats pull out of the bipartisan China task force I had set up?”

He continued by asking “Why did Speaker Pelosi pull out of that? Why have they denied certain bills that would hold China accountable, that have passed the Senate, not come to the floor? Why do they focus on Silicon Valley members of Congress? Why is he still on the Intel. Committee? Why is he still a member of Congress? Did Adam Schiff know, as chairman of that committee, that he had this problem?”

“Not only should he be removed from the Intel. He should be removed from Congress, as well,” McCarthy added.
