Last Wednesday, 20 Republicans in the House voted for a move to postpone the vote that would censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). Among the Republicans, four abstained, and two marked “present.”
After the vote, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) tweeted about the resolution she introduced.
Luna wrote that because some people didn’t read the bill correctly and there was confusion, she would file a privileged motion to reprimand Schiff and have him investigated by ethics. She then told Schiff she would see him next week.
The resolution aimed to publicly shame Schiff for his repeated claims of circumstantial evidence to support his allegations of Trump’s Russian connection while serving as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. After an extensive investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded that neither Trump nor his campaign committed any illegal acts of collaboration.
The motion also asked for Schiff to be censured for his part in initiating an impeachment investigation of former President Trump in 2019. Schiff falsified a phone discussion between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Trump.
According to the resolution, the investigation against Donald and his campaign cost the American public $32 million, all of which was funded thanks to Schiff’s lies, deceptions, and abuses of confidential information.
It also stipulated a $16 million penalty for Schiff should the Committee on Ethics find him guilty.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) booted him off the House Intelligence Committee for his part in spreading the Russia connection lie.
According to a report, Rep. Adam Schiff’s censure resolution in the House has been given another chance. Schiff was spared a public scolding from his colleagues last week when most Republicans joined Democrats in tabling the resolution.
Anna Paulina Luna plans to present the measure again without the penalties.
Schiff was crucial to the assault against the Trump presidency, but the plotting of the corrupted and politicized leaders and agents of the FBI played a role. The Democrat National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign were deeply involved, and then there were establishment media and social media influencers operating in tandem with the political actors to shape the narrative.
