Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “‘Squad’ Members Elevated to Key House Committees | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) will both serve on the House Financial Services Committee, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office announced Thursday.

Meanwhile, fellow progressive “Squad” member Representative Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) was chosen to join the Oversight and Reform Committee.

“In the election, the American people elected a Democratic House Majority that not only will ensure that our nation recovers from this historic pandemic and economic crisis, but will Build Back Better,” Pelosi said in a statement Thursday announcing dozens of committee assignments, including that of Representative Eric Swalwell of California to the Homeland Security Committee.

Republicans have asked Swalwell to step down or be removed from the House Intelligence Committee over his past ties with alleged Communist spy Fang Fang. He was on the Homeland Security Committee from 2012 to 2014, before the FBI had made him aware of Fang’s activities, after which he cut ties.

Pelosi said in a statement that the “outstanding Members” would be “relentless in leading Democrats’ work to combat disparities in our economy and country and to advance justice and progress For The People.”
