House Republicans will block Iowa Rep. Steve King from serving on any committees in the new Congress as punishment for his remarks about white supremacy. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced the move against King on Monday. He denounced King's remarks as "beneath the dignity of the Party of Lincoln and the United States of America."
