House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made a bold move in removing Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and Ilhan Omar from their respective committees. The move was met with much criticism from the left, but McCarthy had a clear goal: to ensure the security of the American people.
According to McCarthy, the FBI provided him with a briefing indicating that the Chinese government had compromised Swalwell. As a result, McCarthy concluded that Swalwell should not have access to sensitive information and, therefore should not serve on the Intelligence Committee. Furthermore, McCarthy stated that Schiff had “openly lied to the American public” on multiple occasions and that Omar should not be allowed to shape foreign policy, given her controversial statements about the United States.
McCarthy issued a direct challenge to the left, asking there thoughts on giving Swalwell a security clearance and allowing him to serve on the House Intelligence Committee. He then turned his attention to Schiff, demanding that reporters ask why Schiff was given access to sensitive information if he had been lying to the public.
It was a scorching moment that was so on point CNN cut away.

So far, McCarthy has held to his end of the bargin.
Right on cue, Rep. “Fang Fang” is playing the victim.
From The Hill:
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that attacks from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy are inspiring death threats against him.
Swalwell told MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace on “Deadline: White House” that McCarthy plans to remove him from his committee assignments for “political vengeance.”
That means there is really only one thing to do. McCarthy should declassify all details surrounding Swalwell and “Fang, Fang.” That way we can all see who’s telling the truth and lying.
But for some reason, the Democrats don’t want that either (sarcasm).
