Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) slammed himself ousted from the House Intelligence Committee As mere “petty, political payback,” However, Twitter users quickly reminded him why so many Americans believe he is not fit for the job.
On Tuesday night, Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the House, removed Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Rep. Schiff from the committee in a move Democrats considered retribution.
McCarthy wrote to Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffreys explaining his decision. “the misuse of this panel during the 116th and 117th Congresses severely undermined its primary national security and oversight missions – ultimately leaving our nation less safe.”
Schiff, who was the previous chair of the committee did not seem to like the news.
“Kevin McCarthy just kicked me and @RepSwalwell off the Intelligence Committee,” Tuesday evening, Schiff tweeted. “This is petty, political payback for investigating Donald Trump. If he thinks this will stop me, he will soon find out just how wrong he is. I will always defend our democracy.”
Many Twitter users criticized Schiff By condemning his past political history in the recent years.
The Federalist editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway gave her take on the events that led to Schiff’s dismissal.
“Adam Schiff, who falsely claimed for many years to have evidence collusion between Trump and Russia, She tweeted that she had kicked out the Intel Committee and her office is well-known for leaking to help such partisan information operations.
Nick Flor, University of New Mexico professor, tweets “’This is petty, political payback…’ Okay, look. You lied 24/7 for FOUR YEARS about having proof of President Trump’s collusion with Russia. LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. L-I-E-D. It’s not payback. It’s inevitable.”
Greg Price, senior digital strategist at X Strategies LLC tweeted a similar critique.
“You went on TV for two years and said that you had personally seen evidence of Trump colluding with Russia while being told in closed door hearings by intel officials that there was no evidence of it,” He said. “You should resign in disgrace.”
Sean Davis, Federalist CEO and cofounder, tweeted: “Good. You’re a lying, leaking clown. Swalwell and you can both use the extra time to get started. Friends of Fang Fang Committee.”
Schiff was not the only one who made fun of Schiff.
