Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) will not stop fighting Trump and MAGA even if Kevin McCarthy kicks him out of his commissions.
Kevin can do whatever he wants to give in to the MTGs and MAGA extremists, but I promise you, no matter what committees I’m on (or not), I won’t stop fighting to expose the GOP’s lies. https://t.co/FYHk4Y5bOI

Kevin McCarthy tried Rep. Swalwell from the Intelligence Committee, but was unsuccessful. He has vowed to strip Swalwell of his committee assignments once the Republicans officially take back the majority.
Kevin McCarthy has it out on Eric Swalwell because Rep. Swalwell indicts Donald Trump over the attack on the Capitol. McCarthy and Marjorie Taylor Greene want to punish Swalwell for taking on Trump and trying to hold him accountable in court for the 1/6 attack.
Removing an experienced and skilled member of the House from committee duty is about pleasing Donald Trump and getting revenge on those who want to hold him accountable.
It doesn’t matter if Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff lose their committee assignments, because the House majority coming to power seems temporary.
Republicans gained control of the House because of gerrymandering, and in 2024 you should expect that if Trump is at the top of the Republican ticket, the Democrats will roll back into the majority.
