U.S. House Votes to Censure Corrupt Congressman Adam Schiff


When it comes to hyperbolic pronouncements and plying official disinformation, no one’s as notorious as Democrat Congressmen Adam Schiff. His lies would become the basis for contrived fake impeachment hearings designed to push Donald Trump form the White House. So when the Republicans took control of the House in January, it was only a matter of time before Schiff’s systemic corruption would catch up to him. 

For years, Schiff repeatedly lied to Congress and the American public about the fake Russiagate hoax, and made an infinite amount of false statements and accusations, but has never been held to account for his litany of egregious behaviour and corruption.

Schiff made himself House intelligence chair and led Trump’s first impeachment – where Democrats sought to remove Trump from office for seeking factual evidence exposing Biden family corruption in Ukraine. He even published a book about the phoney Russia investigation.

Schiff is currently running for US Senate in California.

In the end, Schiff’s lies that cost American taxpayers hundreds millions of dollars, as he repeatedly abused his position as chairman.

In addition to all this, Schiff is also associated with the controversial Ukraine-linked American investment house Franklin Templeton Investments who, along with Hunter Biden and associates, are also implicated in the $7.2 billion Ukrainian state bond scandal.

This week, Congress have voted to censure Schiff…

Zero Hedge reports…

It has not been a good day for the Congressman from California.

First he was ‘owned’ by John Durham, while the democrat attempted a character assassination, and now the House of Representatives voted to censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on June 21, a week after an initial resolution to do so was tabled.

The tally was 213-209. Six voted “present.”

 

With the passing of the resolution, Schiff has been referred to the House Ethics Committee for investigation.

As Jackson Richman reports via The Epoch Times, the resolution was privileged and therefore triggered a House vote. In last week’s vote, 20 Republicans joined 205 Democrats to table the initial resolution.

The revised resolution was similar to the initial one, with the notable difference being that it did not have a $16 million fine for Schiff should he be held accountable by the House Ethics Committee for his alleged “falsehoods, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information.”

The new resolution, like the tabled one, condemns Schiff, who was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, for perpetuating the notion there was collusion between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. That was debunked by special counsel Robert Mueller in 2019, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz later the same year, and special counsel John Durham in May. The $16 million fine is half of the taxpayer cost of the Mueller probe.

Durham testified on June 20 at a closed-door hearing before the House Intelligence Committee and also gave evidence in a public hearing today in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

Additionally, the new resolution did not state that “Schiff used his position and access to sensitive information to instigate a fraudulently based investigation, which he then used to amass political gain and fundraising dollars.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) gave credence on June 15 to the 20 House Republicans that joined Democrats in tabling the initial resolution.

“I think everybody knows my thoughts of Adam Schiff,” McCarthy told The Epoch Times.

“That’s why I removed him from [the House Intelligence Committee]. … You have a number of members on principle that sat and argued for the last four years with President [Donald] Trump that you had to have due process and voted that way. And I think a number of them believe that they should [have] gone to [the House Ethics Committee] first.”

Ahead of the vote on the revised resolution, Schiff appeared defiant on the House floor.

“To my Republican colleagues who introduced this resolution, I thank you. You honor me with your enmity. You flatter me with this falsehood,” he said.

“You who are the authors of the Big Lie about the last election must condemn the truth-tellers and I stand proudly before you. Your words tell me I have been effective in the defense of our democracy and I am grateful,” continued Schiff. “And yet this false and defamatory resolution comes at a considerable cost to the country and to the Congress.”

Following the vote on the revised censure resolution, McCarthy, who has expressed contempt toward his fellow Californian, called Schiff to the well of the House floor that is below the dais where the clerks and speaker preside.

“Will the gentleman from California present himself in the well? By its adoption of House Resolution 521, the House has resolved that Representative Adam Schiff be censured,” said McCarthy.

“That Representative Adam Schiff forthwith present himself in the well of the House for the pronouncement of censure,” said McCarthy after Schiff went to the well.

“That Representative Adam Schiff be censured with the public reading of this resolution by the Speaker.”

With a strike of the gavel, McCarthy concluded the censure.

In interviews on June 20 with The Epoch Times, Republicans were in favor while Democrats expressed opposition to the censure resolution.

“This guy’s for however many years been walking out of classified briefings and saying to the press, ‘I heard that President Trump, I was told that President Trump did this, this, this, this or this,’” said Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.), referring to Schiff.

“So one, if members of Congress had to fill out an SF-86, like every other normal American to get a security clearance, he would have his denied, revoked, whatever, in about 10 seconds.”

An SF-86 is the application to obtain a security clearance.

“And so I think that’s well worth censuring, given that it’s a direct violation of his duties to keep it simply on that,” said Mast.

“So I could say a lot about the guy. None of it nice.”

Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-Wyo.) said Schiff “lied to the American people … for years. He was extremely destructive, and I believe that he needs to be held accountable.”

But Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) remarked that the censure would be “in-kind contributions” to Schiff’s 2024 Senate campaign to succeed retiring Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Also coming to her fellow Californian’s defense, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), said Schiff “has done good work honorably” and that “the effort to try and change a policy dispute into some kind of sanction is unprecedented and unwise.”

Rep. Jack Bergman (R-Mich.) stated simply, “I believe that good behavior should be rewarded and bad behavior should be censured.”
