Bill to Censure Adam Schiff Gets Support from Majority of House Republicans
Resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman
Almost two-thirds of House Republicans support a resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for falsifying quotes from a conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
According to a list obtained by Breitbart News, a total of one-hundred and twenty-three House Republicans backed a movement to condemn Chairman Schiff by cosponsoring House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) H. Res. 604.
H. Res. 604 would condemn Schiff for retelling a fictional phone call between Zelensky and Trump.
Schiff also reportedly lied about never having to the “whistleblower.”
Rep. Andy Biggs introduced the resolution Friday after Trump called for Schiff to resign.
“Rep. Adam Schiff fraudulently read to Congress, with millions of people watching, a version of my conversation with the President of Ukraine that doesn’t exist."
House Freedom Caucus conservatives, moderates, and House Republican leadership have all backed the move to censure Schiff.
Also sponsoring the resolution to condemn Schiff are:
- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)
- House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA)
- House Republican Conference chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY)
Biigs slammed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff for blocking Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) from attending an impeachment deposition.
