It is my understanding that he can only exclude members on his own authority from the Intelligence Commitee. It is a special committee and not a regular standing committee, but don’t know the background on that.

A member of a standing committee can only be removed by a majority vote of the entire House. I’m not sure that he can muster a unified vote of the Republicans, especially as they currently, I believe, have several members absent.
