emocratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries issued a demand to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Saturday, saying that two “eminently qualified legislators” should be reappointed to the Intelligence Committee, despite one’s alleged ties to a Chinese spy.
Jeffries claimed that Reps Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA), have been providing oversight to the nation’s intelligence community for over two decades, and should continue to do so.
The demand comes after McCarthy announced plans to remove Swalwell and Schiff from the House Intelligence Committee and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from seats on the Foreign Affairs committee.
McCarthy recently told Punchbowl News that “Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance,” adding that, “Schiff has lied too many times to the American public.”
