California Democrat Eric Swalwell is apparently not happy about the fact that he may be removed from the Intelligence Committee.
How he even still has a seat on the committee is a mystery. He had a relationship with a woman from China who is suspected of being a spy.
Kevin McCarthy has vowed to remove him.
The Hill reported:
McCarthy vows to remove three Dems from committee posts
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) reiterated his pledge to remove Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell (Calif.), Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) from their committee posts if he becomes Speaker in the next Congress.
McCarthy told Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo that he would remove Swalwell and Schiff from their posts on the House Intelligence Committee, accusing them of being compromised or biased.
“Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector. Why would we ever give him a security clearance in the secrets to America? So I will not allow him to be on Intel,” McCarthy said. “You have Adam Schiff, who had lied to the American public time and again. We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either.”
Swalwell has been a target for Republicans after it was reported a Chinese intelligence operative had formed close ties with the Democratic lawmaker. Swalwell has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
Swalwell recently tweeted this:
Kevin McCarthy wants to kick me off the Intelligence Committee and put Paul Gosar back on his committees. Paul Gosar wants to terminate the Constitution. pic.twitter.com/fXcDCxxezT

The moment America found out that you shagged Chinese spy you should not have been on the Intelligent Committee in the first place.

Paul Gosar didn't sleep with a Chinese spy. You shouldn't be allowed on any committee.

Swalwell really doesn’t belong anywhere near the Intel Committee.
