Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries demanded that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy reappoint Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Ilhan Omar to the House Intelligence Committee.
The demand comes as McCarthy plans to block Swalwell, Schiff and Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from seats on the House Intelligence Committee. Greg Wehner is a breaking news reporter for Fox News Digital.
McCarthy recently told Punchbowl News that "Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance."
McCarthy also said, "Schiff has lied too many times to the American public," and argued that Omar's outspoken criticism of Israel is borderline antisemitic.
