McCarthy blames the delay on Democratic members, of course.

6. +1. If they don't want to show up, change the rules to proceed without them.

12. Slight modification, change the rules so its stated that failure to appoint members means

that the committee has approval to proceed by the ones failing to appoint members.
In other words it paints them into the corner of going on the record as approving whatever the committee does if they want to drag their heels.

2. So the Democrats forced McCarthy to not do his job?

Understood.

3. I suspect his delaying is about 95% obstructionist game-playing, but the other 5% is probably

trying to find non-embarrassing, non-assclowns who actually want to be on this committee with minority status. This is the committee which is going to drag all of Trump & Co.'s traitorous deeds out into the light and the GOP will be powerless to prevent it... no serious GOPer wants any part of that, and the non-serious ones like Nunes make the GOP look like a bunch of traitorous morons (for good reason, but still, their party would be better off with fewer of those on the committee not more).

4. That was my thought as well.

All the usual suspects will flee the scene.

18. No that is not it...they can't send the transcripts of those who testified before the committee

to Mueller until the GOP asshats are appointed..the GOP ran it before and refused to provide transcripts ...protecting those who lied to Congress.

5. Like it matters.

And like Schiff and company are going to forget the disaster that was the last House Intel Committee.

8. I wonder if there's a deadline for the minority to name committee members?

I would think there is. Otherwise, a minority party could keep a committee from functioning during an entire session. I imagine there is some sort of deadline. If there isn't, there should be.

15. Dear Dog, I hope Nunes is named.

It would be like snipping off the legs of a cockroach the moment before the light switch is flipped on.

16. Nunes has already been appointed as ranking member co-chair

Maddow exposing that McCarthy was dragging his feet on naming Intel and Oversight committees probably is what spurred him into action. I doubt he'll have trouble finding members who want to serve on Intel. I'd think at the very least Will Hurd would want an assignment on Intel. Looks like there are 22 members and the breakdown is 13D, 9R for the 116th Congress.

House Intel committee does have term limits, though. Good read from Lawfare: https://www.lawfareblog.com/why-are-representatives-clamoring-join-house-intelligence-committee
