    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) appeared to threaten House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) after the Democrat was bounced from the House Intelligence Committee.

    Swalwell, who allegedly had an affair with a Chinese spy, told McCarthy he thinks he'll "regret" the move, seeming to hint at political retribution of some kind.

    "We will not be quiet," Swalwell said Wednesday, referring to fellow Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff of California and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, both booted from committees, too. "We're not going away. I think he'll regret giving all three of us more time on our hands."

    "But at the end of the day, our mission now is to restore the credibility and integrity of this institution of which the speaker has so gravely, so gravely smashed and destroyed," the Democrat added.

    Swalwell also claimed McCarthy is responsible for alleged death threats he's been receiving, asserting, "Even though we have said publicly, 'These smears are bringing death threats against us,' he continues to do it, which makes us believe that there's an intent behind it."

    Swalwell has refused to address reports that he had an affair nearly 10 years ago with a Chinese national named Christine Fang, or Fang Fang, who posed as a political supporter but was later revealed to be a Chinese spy.

    "Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector. Why would we ever give him a security clearance in the secrets to America? So, I will not allow him to be on Intel," McCarthy said back in November.

    The House Speaker has also said the FBI never gave congressional leaders a briefing about Swalwell's alleged relationship with the spy until he served on the Intelligence Committee.

    "So, it wasn't just us who were concerned about it," the Republican said. "The FBI was concerned about putting a member of Congress on the Intel Committee, that has the rights to see things that others don't, because of his knowledge and relationship with a Chinese spy. I got that briefing, so I do not believe he should sit on that committee... and I believe there's 200 other Democrats that can serve on that committee."

    McCarthy on Tuesday announced that he had rejected Swalwell and Schiff, who pushed the Trump-Russia collusion hoax, from the House Intelligence Committee.

    Schiff was also upset about the removal.

    "Kevin McCarthy just kicked me and [Eric Swalwell] off the Intelligence Committee," the Democrat reacted on Twitter. "This is petty, political payback for investigating Donald Trump. If he thinks this will stop me, he will soon find out just how wrong he is. I will always defend our democracy."

    Rep. Omar was bounced from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over past comments viewed as antisemitic.

    "Kevin McCarthy's purely partisan move to strip us from our committee is not only a political stunt, but also a blow to the integrity of our democratic institution and threat to our national security," the "Squad" member reacted Wednesday. "If McCarthy wants to denigrate the House and its committees, we will always stand up to these efforts."

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.

MSB: Did you NOT mean to type Democrats instead of Republicans in your sentence: "The Republicans are working towards making the USA a communist country!"?

Otherwise, every word you wrote makes absolutely no sense. You might should check that.

My sincere thanks to Speaker McCarthy's role in removing all Non Patriot Representatives from the Intel Committee.

Only an idiot would against argue such an extreme measure because Eric Swalwell is a true Non Patriot Idiot of the highest order.
