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 McCarthy 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.

Schiff infamously spent years promising evidence that former President Donald Trump had colluded with Russia to win the 2016 elections, but never produced it. A years-long, multimillion dollar special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller also confirmed there was no evidence of a conspiracy by Trump or his campaign to collude with Russia on the election. Schiff has never retracted his claims.

McCarthy also said in the exclusive interview with Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle that as speaker of the House, he would strip Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) of his assignment on the intelligence committee, as well as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of her assignment on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
