U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, reacted as you might have expected to Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy declaring that if the Republican Party takes control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, that he would strip Schiff of his committee assignments.
In a dramatic take, Schiff’s spokesperson declared on Tuesday that it would be “catastrophic” if the Democrat was removed from the Intel Committee — never mind that this is a game started by Democrats when Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., censured U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and removed him from his committees over an anime video he shared, and stripped U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., of her committee assignments over “past incendiary comments and apparent support of violence against Democrats,” as NPR characterized the reasons.
“It is always difficult to take Kevin McCarthy seriously. Nevertheless, allowing McCarthy to get anywhere near the Speaker’s gavel would be catastrophic — not just because of his propensity for falsehoods and smears, but because he will exist solely to do Donald Trump’s bidding — even potentially overturning the 2024 results,” Schiff’s press secretary Lauren French said, according to Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

It would appear that Democrats are already concerned about the outcome of the 2024 presidential election, even though Donald Trump has yet to declare that he will run.
“The Democrats have created a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committees,” McCarthy said in a recent interview. “Never in the history [of Congress] have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee. But this new standard which these Democrats have voted for.”
Among the lawmakers the GOP leader named as candidates to be stripped of committee assignments was U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who reportedly fell into a Communist China honeytrap when he slept with suspected Chinese government spy Fang Fang, and U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who has a rich history of anti-Semitic actions.
“You look at Adam Schiff,” he then said. “He should not be serving on Intel when he has openly knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American people in the process and doesn’t have any ill-will, says he wants to continue to do it.”
The remark was a reference to the discredited Steele Dossier, which was reportedly used by the FBI to obtain surveillance warrants on former Trump aide Carter Page. As for the debunked claim of Russian collusion hoax, Schiff insisted that there was “significant evidence” to prove the false charge.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from unsympathetic social media users, as seen on Twitter:
Embrace the fear, it will help you cope when it happens.. and you’ve all done it to yourselves.

Already scared of losing 2024.. you should be. Libs are running this country into the ground.

Gee, the Big Lie for thee but not for me. That you admit that this is in the realm of possibility makes it apparent that’s it’s something *you‘d* do if you had the chance. Hell, your boss did everything in his power to smear a sitting President. My wish? That you get what u gave.

Methinks Mr. Schiff is feeling a bit nervous.

Interesting how Schiff doesn’t think he does Biden’s and Pelosi’s bidding. That he is head of intelligence is an oxymoron. Schiff is a pathological liar.
