Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, pointed out that McCarthy would punish Republicans for voting for infrastructure, but not for inciting violence.
Rep. Schiff tweeted:
There was a time when the light of killing a colleague would evoke united indignation.
But not in McCarthy’s GOP.
In McCarthy’s IDP, they want to punish members who voted for infrastructure.
That’s right, infrastructure.
But to approve of violence – it’s A-okay.

Rep. Schiff referred to Rep. Gosar’s tweet from an animated video showing him rep. Alexandria killed Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and swung swords at President Biden.
Gosar is one of the 1/6 coup plotters who worked with insurgents and the Trump administration to plan the attack. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, however, plans to take no action against Gosar, but he’s going to have his caucus try to punish the 13 House Republicans who voted for the two-party infrastructure bill.
Gosar, just like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, should not serve in Congress.
If Democrats and Independents need more motivation to go out and vote next November, consider that coup plotters like Gosar and Greene will be in the House majority if Republicans win in 2022.
Domestic terrorist sympathizers will make US policy. “They will certainly try to accuse President Biden and Vice President Harris, and America’s democracy will face the challenge of those who are openly planning its destruction and possessing political power.”
