Republicans to Remove Omar, Swalwell from Committees If GOP Retakes House

'If we are fortunate enough to have the majority, Omar would not be serving on Foreign Affairs...'

House Republicans plan to strip both Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., from their committee assignments if they retake the House majority in 2022, according to the Washington Examiner.

Republicans have tried to oust both of the Democratic members before, but Democratic leadership under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has resisted their efforts.

Omar, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Labor Committee, has been rebuked multiple times by members of her own party for using anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Earlier this year, she even compared the U.S. and Israel to the Taliban and Hamas, both of which are terrorist organizations.

In addition to her hostile rhetoric and use of offensive tropes against Jewish people, the charter “Squad” member has been accused in court of being a plant for the Iranian and Qatari governments, and she has been subject to a slate of serious, credible allegations involving campaign-finance-, election-, immigration- and tax-fraud, among other things.

Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was tied to a Chinese foreign agent before and during his congressional career.

One report found that his relationship with the spy was so close that the intelligence community had to intervene and alert Swalwell.

Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., argued there’s a “stronger case” to remove Swalwell. But House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has already vowed to immediately remove Omar from her committees if he is back in the majority next year.

Omar is “an individual that has not once, but on numerous occasions been anti-Semitic,” McCarthy told Fox News.

“I will promise you this,” McCarthy said. “If we are fortunate enough to have the majority, Omar would not be serving on Foreign Affairs—or anybody that has an anti-Semitic, anti-American view. That is not productive, and that is not right.”
