In a move that has surprised many on Capitol Hill, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California has removed two of the top Democrats who spearheaded President Donald Trump’s impeachment efforts off of the House Intelligence Committee.
McCarthy, a longtime supporter of pro-gun rights, cited an increasing need for intelligence that would be beneficial to the Second Amendment.
“We need to keep our guns safe and secure, and it is essential that we have a committee that understands the importance of gun ownership,” McCarthy said in a statement.
He went on to explain that the two Democrats, Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, were no longer welcome on the committee due to their anti-gun policies.
“We need to ensure that the Intelligence Committee is composed of members who understand the importance of standing up for the Second Amendment,” McCarthy said.
The move has been met with both praise and criticism from both sides of the aisle. Supporters of the decision have applauded McCarthy for standing up for gun rights, while critics have argued that it is a politicization of the Intelligence Committee.
Regardless of the outcome, it is clear that McCarthy is determined to ensure that the Intelligence Committee is composed of individuals who are firmly in support of the Second Amendment.
