Report: Pelosi quietly removed Rep. Katie Porter from top House committee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just reportedly joined other House Democrats to remove Progressive Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) from the House Financial Services Committee, sparking rumors of increased infighting within the Democrat party. 

The quiet change provides a new opportunity for Democrats to change leadership in the powerful Congressional committee. Porter had been a noted critic of fellow committee Democrat Maxine Waters (D-CA).

Pelosi’s approval was required to remove Porter from the committee. The Steering Committee of which Pelosi is part determines the Financial Services Committee’s members.

Despite no longer serving on the committee, Porter will continue to be on the House Oversight Committee. The Congresswoman also serves on the House Natural Resources Committee in a subcommittee role.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claims Porter is following through on her plans to shake up Washington.

“So many of us, regardless of ideology, run on ‘shaking up Washington.’ But then when you actually come here, there’s a lot of consequences for doing that,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “There are many strong personalities in our class, and that leads to some ruffling of feathers, because we’re sent here literally to try to disrupt.”

Porter has also been noted as a potential future California Senate candidate. Though she will not run against Sen. Alex Padilla in 2022, she could have an opportunity when Sen. Dianne Feinstein leaves office.

The Congresswoman argues she plays by the rules, despite her committee removal:

Porter Democrat infighting may remain quiet for now, but will likely continue to fuel future efforts for California political leadership. Conservatives may see this as an opportunity to pursue new political options in the traditionally blue state.

  1. Looks like one old fart (Pelosi) is trying to protect another old fart (Waters) at the cost of one of their own. Apparently, Pelosi wants to start a feeding frenzy within the Dems ranks, hopefully destroying the party from the inside out. She’s protecting the aged and senile swamp dwellers (Waters) from the younger and smarter swamp rats (Porter).
    This will definitely not end well for the Dems.

  2. Well, I have been saying for years. That the oldest swamp rat in the House of Representatives. An old alcoholic should not be in office. This is where limits on times you can serve, should have been made. She is a demented, old alcoholic that should have been to pasture years ago. She is a liberal that can’t and won’t follow her commitment to protect our Constitution. And it is typical of the one of the most corrupt states in the union. We should made California one of it’s own country and delete it from the United States. They don’t want to follow our rule of law anyway. So let them make up their own.

  3. The power struggle will destroy them all.People watch and see the democrats fall and never to rise again for their lies .Actually any liar will be exposed and many will be expelled

  4. They begin eating their own. A bright spot: two of the poorest counties in the US, right on the Texas-Mexico border, both heavily Hispanic, just voted 81% and 84% for Trump. Hispanics, unlike Demorats, have standards, values and morals. That incoming voter block on the border may just well end up saving REPUBLICANS! 🙂

  5. We can only pray that their selfish un American ways will send them down the road to self disrupting of their entire party. They are so blinded by their hate for Trump and our country , they really can’t see what their doing . And by the time the see it, it will be to late to do anything .

  6. it seems there are some Dems with a slight semblance of a brain, which is exactly why the brainless power hungry’s remove them when the slightest bit of logic is expressed.

  7. Should have been mentally challenged Maxine that should be removed. How much money has she funneled to her daughter at tax payer expense?

  8. You bet, the Evil Old, washed out, Ugly Rags all protect one another, because Criminal Stick together.
    Even if they discover criminal activities, which we do know is hidden, “THEY ARE ALL ABOVE THE LAW, JUST LIKE CRIMINAL MOBSTERS THE “CLINTON’S”.

    How I wish President Donald J. Trump was still in the White House, but we all know the Election was Rigged.

  9. Pelosi is a power hungry greedy psyco and if anyone should be removed is her,she doesn’t care about the people of this country only herself

  10. Could someone please explain to me HOW IN THE WORLD one Ugly Hateful Witch Polosi has the Power to do the things she is doing???? It don’t matter if you are a DEMONCRAT or Republican, if the “WITCH” don’t like you, you better look out because she will get you one way or another. I simply do not understand her power. She is totally one PIECE OF POISON. AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA I have said before, that I hate to think of her life when she leaves this world. It will be interesting to watch as she suffers in torment. You won’t have any Power there Witch, you will receive what you ABSOLUTELY DESERVE and it ain’t gonna be pretty!! When her Ugly face appears or I see her name mentioned, my Blood Pressure doubles.

  11. Its important to remember that most new immigrants do not vote by political affiliation , but more likely to vote along ethnic lines.While the Democrats think flooding the country with aliens is a winning strategy there is a good chance that once they establish themselves and to have to start paying for things they may not be so receptive to that idea. Or maybe even the idea of more immigrants!

  12. She must have had the claws sharpened at the local pound along with a fluff and dry. Could have been a side of catnip involved.


    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Members of the House


    One call per rep!

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE
