One of Kevin McCarthy’s promises when running for Speaker of the House was to remove Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from their committee assignments.
McCarthy has kept this promise, but Democrats aren’t taking no for an answer.
Now House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries has nominated Schiff and Swalwell to serve on the Intel Committee.

Schiff, Swalwell Submit for Jeffries Intel Panel, Force to Fight McCarthy
House Democratic leaders have nominated Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) to sit on the powerful Intelligence Committee, vowing to stay off the committee to set up a war with Republican leaders. .
Separately, Democrats this week on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is expected to take the seat, according to a source familiar with the Democrats’ plans, prompting GOP leaders to hold off on a floor vote. Remove her.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a letter Saturday to House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (DNY) that both Schiff and Swalwell, the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, are “extremely qualified” to continue serving. In committee. Jeffries requested that McCarthy be seated there.
“Together, these members have two decades of distinguished leadership providing oversight of our nation’s intelligence community in addition to their prosecutorial work in law enforcement prior to serving in Congress,” Jeffries wrote.
Kevin McCarthy needs to stick to his guns on this one.
That would be a hard NO.
Not for political reasons, as Democrats do to me, but because Schiff and Swalwell can’t be trusted on the Intelligence Committee. https://t.co/68HRh7hFcd

Swalwell is claiming that this is all about political revenge.
Honored to be re-nominated by @repjefrees to the Intel Committee. McCarthy’s threat to remove me out of political retaliation destroys the committee’s independence. Worse, his justification is based on a lie @WashingtonPostHis fact-checker gave 4 Pinocchios. He has no credibility pic.twitter.com/rO9z3cNzQc

The truth is that Swalwell was unable to obtain a security clearance as a citizen. They are compromised.
