Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from committee assignments that a future GOP majority could take similar action against individual Democrats.

Schiff replied that he was unconcerned about McCarthy’s comments. 

"Kevin McCarthy stands for nothing except the perpetuation of his own position. He has no values, and in my view cares about little except for hoping to be speaker one day, God forbid," he said.

“If members of either party are threatening other members of the body and suggesting they be executed, if they are casting doubt on 9/11 or school shootings, if they’re heckling victims of crime like Marjorie Taylor Greene did with the victim of the Parkland shooting … they should be expelled from their committees, whatever party they are in,” the Democratic congressman said.

Schiff added that he was not worried about setting a precedent that could be used against Democrats “as long as we hold the same standard.”

“You have members that are threatening to execute each other, and they should be removed from their committees,” he added, referencing comments Greene “liked” on Facebook calling for Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiSunday shows preview: Democrats eye two-part infrastructure push; Michigan coronavirus cases surge Pence pleaded with military officials to 'clear the Capitol' on Jan. 6: AP Democrats see political winner in tax fight MORE’s [D-Calif.] execution.
