House Republican resolution to remove Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) from Intel committee leaves out several FBI statements that did nothing wrong.
Here is the decision to remove Swalwell:

Rep. Swalwell noted that Minority Leader McCarthy’s resolution omitted Swalwell reporting the Chinese spy to the FBI and cooperating with the investigation:
Get to know the new McCarthyism. Several sentences in the resolution say: “Swalwell did not deny …”. However, they do not contain multiple “no wrongdoing” FBI statements and have done nothing other than “cooperate.” All of this to distract from @ GOPLeader’s support for QAnon. https://t.co/2bsU72ev8H

Kevin McCarthy does nothing against QAnon Trump terrorists in his own caucus, but tries to remove Rep. Swalwell from a committee because Swalwell was an impeachment manager of the House and is suing Trump over the Capitol attack.
The resolution left out the fact that Swalwell did nothing wrong. He worked with the FBI on the investigation.
The stimulus bill is popular. Democrats are thriving in the pandemic and the economy, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is a Russian asset, but Kevin McCarthy is trying to get Eric Swalwell off the intelligence committee.
