This one has to hurt.
According to CNS News, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Rep. Eric Swalwell stating that he needs to be removed from the House Intel Committee.
McCarthy said, “Friday, we finally got our FBI briefing. It was just the Speaker Nancy Pelosi and myself. It was a very thorough briefing. No one that was in that room could walk out and say Eric Swalwell should be on the Intel committee. I don’t know — they had a briefing before in 2015, and I don’t know what that briefing was like compared to this one –but it could not have been the same.”
He added, “The one answer that I got out of that briefing was, there is no way Eric Swalwell should continue to serve on the Intel committee, and the challenge here is the leaders of both parties are the only people who select to go on the Intel committee. That is why today, Maria, what I’m going to request, that every single member on the House intelligence committee, gets the exact same briefing from the FBI that I did.”
He continued, “Because if this individual is sitting on this committee, Eric Swalwell, they’ve got to know the background of what’s gone on. I can’t talk about the classified part, but you know what’s out there in the press.” You can read the full article here.
