Don Wolfensberger at The Hill:

Yes, McCarthy as Speaker can later engineer House votes on resolutions removing anyone he wants from any standing committee, as the Democrats did twice in 2021. It is clear what is at play here is a belief that “revenge is sweet” and will bring a feeling of instant gratification. The downside to that emotion, however, is the reality that Coretta Scott King warmed of when she said, “Revenge and retaliation always perpetuate the cycle of anger, fear and violence.” That cycle needs to be broken in the House, and soon.
