House Of Representatives Votes To Censure Adam Schiff Over Russia Hoax, After Initial Vote Fails



Just the News: The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to censure California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff after previously failing to do so in an earlier vote.

The lower chamber rebuked the California lawmaker by a narrow 213-209 vote. Florida GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna had introduced the plan, citing Schiff’s vocal support of the now-thoroughly debunked Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

“The House has resolved that the House of Representatives censures Adam Schiff, representative of the 30th congressional district of California, for misleading the American public and for conduct unbecoming of an elected member of the House of Representatives,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced after the vote.

Schiff will further be referred to the House Ethics Committee for investigation over his “falsehoods, misrepresentations and abuse of sensitive information,” he added.

Special Counsel John Durham, earlier this year, released a report indicating that the FBI opened its investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign with no predicating evidence and noted that senior intelligence officials had been aware of a Clinton campaign plot to fabricate ties between Trump and Moscow before the election concluded. Schiff has, nonetheless, stood by his claims of collusion.

Luna previously introduced a censure measure that would have potentially imposed a substantial fine on the lawmaker, though it failed to pass the chamber. Twenty Republicans sided with Democrats to block the move, citing constitutional concerns.

Earlier this year, McCarthy blocked Schiff from serving on the House Intelligence Committee in light of his statements on the matter.

“Schiff has lied too many times to the American public. He should not be on Intel,” McCarthy said in January. Schiff had served as chairman of the committee during the previous Congress.

Prior to Schiff’s censure, Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar was the most recent lawmaker to suffer that rebuke from the lower chamber. Gosar had posted a hype video featuring the opening sequence of popular anime series “Attack on Titan” in which he superimposed his own face over that of leading character Eren Yaeger, who brutally slaughters enemies featuring the faces of Gosar’s political rivals.
