House RINO’s Join Chamber Democrats In Vote That Blocked Censure Of Adam Schiff



Just the News: California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff avoided congressional censure Wednesday as the Republican-led House of Representatives backed a motion to instead table the effort.

The lower chamber voted 225-196 in favor of tabling the resolution, with seven lawmakers voting present. Twenty Republicans broke ranks to table the effort.

Florida Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna introduced the measure in May, seeking to censure and fine the California Democrat for his propagation of the now debunked Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

“It is the obligation of House Leadership to back up this motion for the American people and hold this feckless man accountable,” she said at the time. Luna previously introduced a measure to expel Schiff from the chamber outright.

Schiff has stood by his public statements supporting the Russia collusion narrative even after the release of a report from special counsel John Durham showing that the FBI began its investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign without any predicating evidence and that the intelligence community was aware of a Clinton campaign plot to fabricate ties between Trump and Moscow before the election concluded.

Though he previously served as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff was denied a seat on the panel in the current Congress by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy over his alleged lying to the public.

“Schiff has lied too many times to the American public. He should not be on Intel,” the speaker said earlier this year.

Schiff is unlikely to remain in the lower chamber beyond the current Congress anyway, as he is currently running in the 2024 Senate race to fill the seat of retiring California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
