    Steve King Loses House Committee Seats Over White Supremacy Remark

    House Republican leaders removed Representative Steve King of Iowa from the Judiciary and Agriculture Committees on Monday night as the party officials scrambled to appear tough on racism and contain damage from comments Mr. King made to The New York Times questioning why white supremacy is considered offensive.

    The punishment came on a day when Mr. King’s own party leadership moved against him, with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, suggesting Mr. King find “another line of work” and Senator Mitt Romney saying he should quit. In an attempt to be proactive, the House Republicans stripped him of his committee seats in the face of multiple Democratic resolutions to censure Mr. King that are being introduced this week.

    Those measures will force Republicans to take a stand on whether to go along with the House Democratic majority’s attempt to publicly reprimand one of their own.

    Speaking to reporters on Monday night after the congressional Republicans acted, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the party leader in the House, said he was not ruling out supporting a censure or reprimand resolution against Mr. King. He said the Republicans are not removing Mr. King from the G.O.P. House conference itself so he can still attend its party meetings.

    A member of Congress was removed from all his committee assignments due to his espoused racist beliefs and you don’t know why this was posted? I know you know why this was posted.

    Should be noted that the idea of a border wall along the southern border originally came from him.

    Lol, not surprised. I been saying in the other debate the wall debate isn't even about the wall, it's about trumps mawa movement. This only solidifies that stance, lol

    the fence on the border already there contradicts this, as does the fact that Democrats themselves previously supported border fencing. people don't like these facts, but this is reality.

    Odd that we suddenly have a national emergency, consindering the effectiveness of said fence. Fence gets longer, crisis turns into national emergency, but the solution is more fence. Feel free to clean that logic up.

    Yea he can get the same deal but only $1B. If he wants $2B, then he's got to expand even beyond what was included for DACA.

    I don't think you get what I'm saying, cuz the stuff you brought up only backs up my stance more.
