Nancy Pelosi's Committee Removals Are Coming Back To Haunt Her

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) committee removals of Republicans are coming back to haunt her as the GOP plots its revenge.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced plans to remove three Democrat members from committees in the next Congress.

"House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) reiterated his pledge to remove Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell (Calif.), Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) from their committee posts if he becomes Speaker in the next Congress," The Hill reported.

"McCarthy told Fox News 'Sunday Morning Futures' host Maria Bartiromo that he would remove Swalwell and Schiff from their posts on the House Intelligence Committee, accusing them of being compromised or biased," it added.

Omar has spoken out against the plans, claiming conservatives are unfairly targeting her.

"McCarthy's effort to repeatedly single me out for scorn and hatred— including threatening to strip me from my committee — does nothing to address the issues our constituents deal with. It does nothing to address inflation, health care, or solve the climate crisis," Omar said, according to NBC News.

"What it does is gin up fear and hate against Somali-Americans and anyone who shares my identity, and further divide us along racial and ethnic lines," she continued.

"It is a continuation of a sustained campaign against Muslim and African voices, people his party have been trying to ban since Donald Trump first ran for office," Omar added.

The committee removals return the favor that Pelosi did to Republicans during the last two years for removing conservatives over views she did not like.

Now Pelosi will lose her role as Speaker as her party faces the consequences of Republicans regaining power.
