MAGA Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar have been given committee assignments after being stripped of them in 2021 by a Democrat-controlled House.
It’s a promise new House Speaker Kevin McCarthy made, and has now kept.
Greene (R-GA) will be sitting on the House Homeland Security and Oversight Committees while Gosar (R-AZ) will take part on the House Natural Resources and Oversight Committees.
Gosar’s assignments are basically a reinstatement to committees he served on before his removal.
Greene’s roles are different, however, as she previously served on the Education and Labor Committee as well as the Budget Committee.
The Georgia lawmaker immediately celebrated her new role and vowed to “investigate the Biden administration’s violations of our laws and fund (and defund) programs to defend our border and American sovereignty.”

The move to reinstate Greene and Gosar to House committees comes just days after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy advised he’d be removing Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from key roles.
Schiff and Swalwell both served on the House Intelligence Committee, with the former serving as Chair. Swalwell also had a role on the Homeland Security Committee. Omar served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Think about that for a minute – Marjorie Taylor Greene is essentially replacing Swalwell on the Homeland Security Committee.
What better symbolism for the new Congress: Kicking a man with ties to a Chinese spy off of Homeland Security and replacing him with an America First congresswoman.
Swalwell must be beside himself.
#BREAKING Rep. @ByronDonalds admits on @thereidout that @SpeakerMcCarthy is kicking me, @RepAdamSchiff, and @Ilhan off our committees purely out of vengeance.

Greene and Gosar are Back
Some have speculated that the committee assignments for lawmakers further to the right on the political spectrum may have been a concession by McCarthy in order to secure the Speaker’s gavel.
In reality, he’s been suggesting Greene and Gosar would be reinstated for quite some time.
“They’ll have committees,” McCarthy vowed back in November of 2021. “They may have other committee assignments.”
In fact, he added, “They may have better committee assignments.”
It seems in the case of Greene at least, the ‘better’ committee promise came to fruition.

“They may have other committee assignments. They may have better committee assignments.”

Democrats had taken the unusual step of removing Greene and Gosar over a year ago from their House committee assignments for very specious reasons.
Gosar was removed for posting a parody cartoon showing an anime version of himself attacking President Biden and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. No serious person took it as a profound threat. Because it was a Japanese cartoon. With swords.
But Democrats, along with Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, voted to remove him from committee. Kinzinger now works for CNN and Cheney was defeated in her primary.
Greene was removed from committee assignments over social media posts made prior to her election to office.
Both had engaged in ill-advised behavior, but nothing that warranted discipline. Democrats simply did it out of spite and because they aren’t afraid of using their power. And now they get to sit on their hands and fume over the fact that Greene and Gosar are back.
I was the first to say Impeach Biden & the first to introduce articles of impeachment.
Soon we are starting our investigations.
My advice to Joe: Resign now bc we’re going to show the world the depth of your corruption & how you’ve abused your power. https://t.co/AgljzFr8uA

CNN also notes that Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania have been added to the House Oversight Committee as well, a significant victory for America First lawmakers.
“The addition of the hardliners will give them the ability to shape some of the most aggressive investigations into the Biden administration,” writes CNN.
One can only hope so.

Schiff said, “I have proof that Trump colluded with Russia.” It turned out his so-called “proof” came out of the mouth of Hillary Clinton and the DNC. He had to have known that they were lying and had fabricated evidence out of thin air and yet he was on the Intelligence Committee. I am overjoyed that such an idiot has been removed from that committee. Also, removing a proven Anti-Semite (Ilhan Omar,) from the Foreign Affairs Committee over her blatant hatred of one of our country’s best allies is justified. As for Eric Swalwell, nuff said. Why is he in Congress? Oh, right, California and Hollyweird like the Communist Chinese.

the fascist Democrat legislators have a lot of gall using their “power” to subvert other lawmakers’ rights to represent their voters. but because there can be NO punishment of your fellow “gentleman/woman” for abusing their positions, the Swamp will continue with its stupid tricks to maintain the corrupt status quo
