EXCERPT:

McCARTHY: “When we had a laptop, he used it before an election to be politics and say that it was false and say that it was the Russians when he knew different, when he knew the intel. If you talk to John Ratcliffe, DNI, he came out ahead of time and says, 'There’s no intel the prove that,' and he used his position as chairman, knowing he has information the rest of America does not, and lied to the American public. When a whistleblower came forward, he said he did not know the individual even though his staff had met with him and set it up. So, no, he does not have a right to sit on that. But I will not be like Democrats and play politics with these, where they removed Republicans from committees and all committees. So, yes, he can serve on a committee, but he will not serve on Intel because it goes to the national security of America, and I will always put them first. All right? And if you want to talk about Swalwell, let’s talk about Swalwell, because you have not had the briefing that I had. I had the briefing and Nancy Pelosi had the briefing from the FBI. The FBI never came before this Congress to tell the leadership of this Congress that Eric Swalwell had a problem with a Chinese spy until he served on Intel. So it wasn’t just us who were concerned about, the FBI was concerned about putting a member of Congress on the Intel Committee, that has the rights to see things that others don’t, because of his knowledge and relationship with a Chinese spy. They brought it to the works of the leaders. I’ve got that briefing, so I do not believe he should sit on that committee and I believe there’s 200 other Democrats that can serve on that committee. So this has nothing to do with Santos. Santos is not on the Intel Committee. But you know what? Those voters elected Schiff, even though he lied. Those voters elected Swalwell, even though he lied to the American public too. So you know what? I'll respect his voters, too, and they’ll serve on committees, but they will not serve on a place that has national security reverence because integrity matters to me. That’s the answer to your question."
