Things are going from bad to worse.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently gave Rep. Matt Gaetz bad news by stating that if the investigation found Gaetz guilty, then he will promptly be removed from the House Judiciary Committee.
McCarthy said, “Look, I haven’t heard from DOJ and been able to talk to Matt Gaetz yet. I just read the story. Those are serious implications. If it comes out to be true, yes, we would remove him if that was the case. Right now, Matt Gaetz says it is not true, and we don’t have any information. Let’s get all the information.”
“We did have the FBI come to us and tell us about Eric Swalwell. He was put on the Intel Committee. The real challenge there, as you both know Intel Committee is different than any committee in Congress. You get all the secrets. The problem with Eric Swalwell in the private sector he couldn’t pass a security clearance. He couldn’t get a security clearance. Why would he get one in Congress? There are 200 other Democrats who could do that job. That’s hypocrisy that they would allow him to be on.”
