GOP leader Kevin McCarthy is planning to remove certain far left Democrats from committees when the GOP takes control of the House in January.
Ilhan Omar, Eric Swalwell, and Adam Schiff top the list, for various reasons.
Democrats are very upset about this, even though they did the exact same thing to Republicans when they controlled the House.
FOX News reports:
Ilhan Omar, Eric Swalwell hit back at McCarthy over pledge to block them from House committees
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s pledge to block Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff and “Squad” member Ilhan Omar from committees next Congress drew a strong response from the lawmakers.
Omar, a Minnesota Democrat who has been accused of making antisemitic statements, claimed that McCarthy’s pledge was just another example of her being targeted by Republicans.
“From the moment I was elected, the Republican Party has made it their mission to use fear, xenophobia, Islamophobia and racism to target me on the House floor and through millions of dollars of campaign ads,” said Omar. “McCarthy’s effort to repeatedly single me out for scorn and hatred — including threatening to strip me from my committee — does nothing to address the issues our constituents deal with. It does nothing to address inflation, health care or solve the climate crisis.”
Omar said the “constant stream of hate” from conservatives has “led to hundreds of death threats and credible plots against me and my family.”
“Instead of doing anything to address the open hostility toward religious minorities in his party, McCarthy is now lifting up people like Marjorie Taylor Greene … and so many others,” she said.
Tough break, Democrats. You set this precedent.

The outrage of Democrats will fall on deaf ears.
They can complain all they want. They did this first.
