The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
Former California GOP Representative and current CEO of TRUTH Social Devin Nunes says that its good that Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is now off the House Intelligence Committee, and he shouldn't be on any others.
"I'm not sure that he should have any committees," Nunes said on Wednesday's edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "He belongs nowhere around intelligence. He was a guy that lied for many, many years, lied about me, attacked me attacked my staff — which I think was a really low blow."
When Schiff was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he released information regarding Devin Nunes's phone calls and information regarding reporters. New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik characterized Schiff's actions as being illegal and unethical.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy confirmed on Monday he would be booting Reps. Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Ilhan Omar from their House committees.
"I think what Speaker McCarthy is doing is exactly the right thing to be doing right now," Nunes said. "In fact, like I said, the only thing I think they're missing is the need to kick him off all committees. There's probably other Democratic members who should be kicked off also."
The TRUTH Social CEO accused former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of damaging Congress by setting this precedent.
"The problem is that Pelosi destroyed the Congress," Nunes stated. "Back in the old days, this would not happen. The Republicans would pick the Republicans on committees and Democrats picked Democrats. But no one's ever going to forget the January 6 fake committee. Jim Jordan, my longtime colleague was placed on the committee as a lead Republican, and was immediately kicked off by Pelosi. Because of that, there is now a new normal."
