Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy faced off against a reporter for removing Democrats from the House Intelligence Committee while allowing controversial Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., to sit on other House committees Tuesday.
Upon the news that Democrat Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, both of California, were removed from the Intelligence Committee, PBS reporter Lisa Desjardins questioned McCarthy on how he could square those actions with allowing Santos to serve on House committees after being caught in multiple lies.
"You said that lying to us is something that means you should be removed from the Intel Committee. But why is it not a factor [for Santos]?" Desjardins asked.
