House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) office said it would be “catastrophic” if Republicans take the House in 2022 and remove him from the intelligence committee, as Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Breitbart News he would do in an exclusive interview published Monday.
Schiff spokesperson Lauren French responded in a statement to Politico:
It is always difficult to take Kevin McCarthy seriously. Nevertheless, allowing McCarty 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.
“… he will exist solely to do Donald Trump’s bidding — even potentially overturning the 2024 results.”
