Calls For Steve King To Be Removed From Committees
Congressional Black Caucus calls for Steve King to be removed from committees
The Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Steve King (R-Ia.) to be removed from his committee assignments Saturday after remarks he made about white supremacy earlier this week.
CBC chair Rep. Karen Bass (D-Ca.) linked King’s comments to President Trump and asked for him to be deposed.
“Like Donald Trump,” she said, “Steve King has sought again and again to give comfort to white supremacists, something that should never be allowed in the halls of Congress or the Oval Office.
Bass characterized King’s remarks as “racist” and the Iowa Republican needed more than just condemnation.
