    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he will keep his promise
    to block three headline-grabbing Democrats from their committee
    assignments in the 118th Congress.

    McCarthy told Punchbowl News in an interview published Tuesday that he
    will act to prevent Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Eric Swalwell,
    D-Calif., from sitting on the House Intelligence Committee. He will
    also seek to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., from the House Foreign
    Affairs Committee.

    "Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance," McCarthy said,
    echoing statements he made to Fox News in November. "Schiff has lied
    too many times to the American public. He should not be on Intel."

    As for Omar, McCarthy has previously argued she should be stripped of
    her committee seat for her outspoken criticism of Israel, which critics
    say is borderline antisemitic.


    It couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people.
