In under two months the GOP will be the majority in the House of Representatives. It's time to get braced for the giant batch of chaos that will be foisted upon the Country. If elected as Speaker of the house, Kevin McCarthy has all but told everyone that his leadership will not be one of governance, but vengeance. Yesterday, he drove that point home.
McCarthy told Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rep. Eric Swalwell (Calif.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) would be stripped of their committee posts if he becomes House speaker in January. (snip)
Earlier this year, McCarthy called for the removal of the three Democrats from committees in a promise that Swalwell said was “purely for retaliation purposes” following House votes to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) from committees in recent years.
The California Republican said on Sunday that he’ll deliver on his promise before criticizing the group of Democrats.
He also plans on not allowing Representatives Schiff and Omar from serving on committees.
His becoming Speaker, it should be noted is still a big 'IF' as he needs to get 210 votes. It appears in order to secure those votes, he's making promises, like the ones above to satisfy MAGAT house members such as MTG, Gosar, and other insurrectionist-friendly members of the House.
In other words, nothing but harm will be given a green light starting in 2023. They say the most dangerous animal is a scared and cornered one and right now, this appears to be the GOP. They will end up eating their own. I mean, there isn't else to digest, to be honest.
With the Senate again narrowly in Democratic hands and House Republicans likely to hold only a small majority, the GOP’s biggest strength will be on the investigative front. Using congressional authority, a Republican-led House will be able to force administration officials on the defensive on a range of issues, from grievances over the COVID-19 pandemic to the personal finances of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
They want to investigate the J6 investigators, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Fauci and Hunter Biden. Any other 'policy' based directives are all based on false arguments.
Oh Wait! There's more: Gym Jordon has already said he wants to investigate Special Prosecutor Jack Smith
, so that should be fun.
In two years, we vote the rest of the nonserious people out.
