House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) held a press conference Friday where he pledged Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would band together to kick out Adam Schiff (D-CA) if they take back the majority in the midterms.
According to The Hill:
At his press conference Friday, McCarthy accused Schiff of politicizing the committee, said he didn’t warn the public about Ukraine or Afghanistan and alleged he lied about intelligence regarding President Biden‘s son Hunter Biden.
“Why is he still chair of the committee and why is he still even on the committee? In a new Congress, if it’s a new majority, he will not be,” McCarthy said.
“You cannot make this committee political, you cannot use it as a position of chairman to lie, and you should be focused on what the American people want you to be focused on around the world,” he added.
