|House Republicans move to reprimand King over white supremacy comments|
Senior Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives moved on Monday to strip congressman Steve King of his committee assignments after the Iowa Republican gave a media interview in which he questioned why white supremacy is considered offensive. The decision by the House Republican Steering Committee to remove King from his posts on the Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees must be ratified by the full caucus of House Republicans. The move comes as several House Democrats filed censure motions against King after he told the New York Times in an interview published last week: "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?" King, who has a history of making statements that critics have condemned as racist, said in a statement that his comments in the Times interview were "completely mischaracterized" and the committee's decision was "a political decision that ignores the truth." House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement that King's remarks were "beneath the dignity" of the party and the country.
