House Republicans Remove Steve King from Committee Assignments

(From UPI)

House Republicans voted unanimously Monday to remove Rep. Steve King from all of his committee assignments after he made comments questioning why white supremacy is considered offensive.

King, R-Iowa, had previously been a member of the House Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees in addition to serving as chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice in the last Congress, but House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he wouldn’t receive any assignments in 2019.
