After years of angst-ridden attacks on the Republican Party, and of course Donald Trump, some of the most prominent Democrats in Congress are pedantically complaining about the fact that their comeuppance has arrived.
With the left having pushed the needle of political rancor to its most abysmal and petty since the Civil War, the Republican Party’s grip on the House of Representatives has already brought with it a great deal of committee-centric reshuffling.
Now, some of the same Democrats who tried to impeach Donald Trump twice and then ban him from ever holding office again are complaining that they didn’t get to keep those cushy committee positions.
Reps. Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and Ilhan Omar, who were stripped of their committee assignments by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, have accused him of “political vengeance” in a statement Tuesday evening after he again blocked their appointments.
“It’s disappointing but not surprising that Kevin McCarthy has capitulated to the right wing of his caucus, undermining the integrity of the Congress, and harming our national security in the process,” said Schiff, D-Calif., Swalwell, D-Calif., and Omar, D-Minn., in a joint statement.
The statement is the latest exchange in an ongoing tiff between McCarthy, R-Calif., and the three Democrats after he removed them from choice committee assignments after Republicans took over the majority, and he was elected Speaker.
The vitriol contiued…
“He struck a corrupt bargain in his desperate, and nearly failed, attempt to win the Speakership, a bargain that required political vengeance against the three of us,” the Democrats continued in the letter.
Americans, even Democrats, aren’t so ignorant that they will ignore the last 4 years of political bickering and belligerence, leaving this trio of complaints to remain unanswered.
