Kevin McCarthy Affirms That He Will Strip Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar of Their Intelligence/Foreign Affairs Committee Assignments, As Promised

I don't know if this has anything to do with the fact that the Freedom Caucus now has the power to call for a vote to remove McCarthy from the Speakership if he cvcks out, but I'd guess it's not not related to that.

Newly minted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is making good on his promise to strip Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell of their committee assignments.

"Swalwell can't get a security clearance in the private sector. I'm not going to give him a government security clearance. Schiff has lied to the American public," McCarthy told reporters late Monday night. "We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either."

The move is especially damaging for Schiff, who abused his position as House Intelligence Committee Chairman to investigate President Donald Trump over bogus "Russian collusion" during the 2016 presidential election. For years Schiff claimed evidence was "hiding in plain site" that would lead to an indictment of Trump. After years of what Trump called a witch hunt, in addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's lengthy and expensive investigation, the politically charged allegations never came true.

Video of Adam Schiff's endless lies -- his "disinformation" -- about having proof of Trump's collusion with Russia at the link.

As if his constant Russian Disinformation, using the authority of his position on the Intelligence Committee to sell his psyops operations to the public, isn't reason enough to ban him permanently from any committee, he also abused his position of power to pressure Twitter into deplatforming the journalist Paul Sperry.

Again, using lies and his position on the Intelligence Committee to do so.

Paul Sperry wrote about Adam Schiff's violation of his oath to defend the Constitution:

Back from holiday vacation, I found an interesting email waiting for me in my inbox from Matt Taibbi, the independent journo Elon Musk tasked with reviewing and releasing internal Twitter documents about decisions to censor content and ban users from the platform.

"Paul," Taibbi wrote, "just found a crazy email on Twitter -- did you know Adam Schiff's staff . . . asked Twitter to have you banned?"

I was gobsmacked. This would explain why Twitter could never give me a reason for suspending my account, even though I had broken none of its rules.

Schiff, the powerful Democratic chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, made his "request" to ban me through his staff in a November 2020 memo to Twitter. Three months later, in early February 2021, I was kicked off the platform.

Why would a congressional leader sworn to protect the Constitution and First Amendment want to muzzle a veteran journalist? Like authoritarians everywhere, Schiff did not like critical reporting. The man who vowed to "protect our Democracy" from Donald Trump wanted to censor a free press.

In articles for RealClearInvestigations, I outed his anonymous "whistleblower" from the first impeachment of President Trump. It was Eric Ciaramella, a Democrat who had worked in the Trump White House as an Obama holdover. I also exposed Ciaramella's prior relationship with one of Schiff's top staffers on the impeachment committee, Sean Misko.

My reporting cast fresh doubts on Schiff's claims that the 2019 impeachment process happened organically. The New York Times had already busted Schiff lying about prior contacts with the whistleblower. Initially, Schiff publicly stated his office never spoke with the whistleblower before he filed his complaint against President Trump, when in fact a Schiff staffer had huddled with him, something Schiff's spokesman Patrick Boland was forced to admit after the Times broke the story. (The staffer was never identified.) The prior contacts led to suspicions Schiff's office helped the whistleblower craft his complaint as part of a partisan operation.

In the censorship demands Schiff's office sent Twitter, Misko and the "impeachment inquiry" are mentioned. It's not clear if Ciaramella is, too, since some names are blacked out. Schiff demanded Twitter "remove any and all content"' related to them.

Unlike in other cases where Twitter did censor accounts, officials there originally argued that "this isn't feasible."

At the time, Twitter was about the only media outlet where the names of Schiff's impeachment operatives were circulating. The Washington press corps had conspired to protect the so-called whistleblower and cover up his identity. The Washington Post even scolded me for identifying him, claiming I was putting his life in danger. But this was a bluff. I was told by his family, as well as impeachment investigators, that he had received no credible threats.

In his list of demands, Schiff tried to justify banning me by claiming I was promoting "false QAnon conspiracies," which I have never done and I challenge Schiff to produce evidence to back up his defamatory remarks.

Schiff knew better. He knew "QAnon" was a trigger for Twitter censors, who were suppressing QAnon posts. Yet even Twitter's liberal gatekeepers appeared skeptical of Schiff's claims: "If it is related to QAnon it should already be deamplified." (Emphasis in original.)

Schiff knows something about promoting false conspiracies. In 2017, he took to the microphone in a televised House Intelligence Committee hearing and read into the congressional record a screed of wild conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia from the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded dossier.

Sperry details Schiff's history of constant disinformation operations against the American public.

...

Months after Schiff lobbied Twitter to ban me and remove all the impeachment-related content from its platform, his communications director and chief of staff -- Patrick Boland -- tried to intimidate my editors at RCI into retracting the impeachment stories I broke a year earlier.

In his emails, Boland invoked "the events of January 6," warning our stories could "result in actual violence" if they remained online. Over time, Boland's demands became more and more strident. But my editors refused to give in to the bullying.

It wasn't about "safety." It was about wanting to avoid any scrutiny for their actions.

After joining Twitter in June 2016, I tweeted more than 20,100 tweets and I amassed more than 340,000 followers -- all without any problems, without any suspensions. Until Schiff exercised his vendetta against me.

Sperry points out that it's wrong to call it "social media" -- it is now just "the media." People view "social media" far more than the legacy media.

Adam Schiff and his Deep State criminal cronies seek nothing less than the complete control over the speech and thoughts of the American public.

And for that, he should not just be banned from any congressional committees, but prosecuted for a criminal conspiracy to deprive citizens of their civil rights.

As to Eric Swalwell and Ilhan Omar: Fartwell f***ed a Chinese spy and continues lying about -- he remains compromised and blackmailable -- and Ilhan Omar defrauded the United States' immigration system by marrying her gay brother to get him a visa. And she speaks on behalf of literal terrorists every other month.
