YOU’RE FIRED! McCarthy Renews Promise To Toss Adam “Shifty” Schiff From House Committee

Published on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Sunday renewed his promise to remove Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from the House Intelligence Committee if he becomes Speaker in the next Congress.

“Another change you’re going to get: Adam Schiff will no longer be on the Intel Committee when I become Speaker. I promised that more than two years ago,” McCarthy told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.

“[Democrats] also used the intel community as well to lie to the American public. Should those people keep their clearances? Should those people still be allowed to have information? If they’re going to be political individuals, then, no, they should not. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of what we need to investigate going forward,” McCarthy said.


This isn’t the first time McCarthy has vowed to kick Schiff off the House committee, but he wants to make himself very clear heading into January’s Speaker of the House election that he means business and plans to literally “clean house”. The minority leader won the GOP conference’s nomination to be Speaker last month, but faces challengers in the upcoming election and is doing everything he can to prove that he won’t let the GOP down.

McCarthy also praised Elon Musk for dropping the Twitter files over the weekend related to the social media platform’s treatment of a New York Post article about President Biden’s son Hunter Biden.

“What Elon Musk has been able to do, now we know why the White House wanted to fight so strongly against him owning Twitter. All he’s done is put out the truth. Now we need to start looking at Facebook, at Google. These now have become arms of the Democratic Party, arms of the Biden administration,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy has also said he’ll remove Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell (Calif.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) from their committee posts if he becomes Speaker.

McCarthy’s promise to fire Adam Schiff didn’t go answered. Schiff hit back at the minority leader’s attacks, accusing him of bending to the extremists in his party in order to get the votes he needs for the top leadership spot when the next Congress convenes.


On Sunday, McCarthy also repeated promises to head up a select committee to investigate China over the origins of COVID-19, along with other key issues they plan to get to the bottom of once the GOP takes control of the House.
