“He has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office.” — Rep. Andy Biggs
135 Republican Congressman have co-sponsored a motion to censure Rep. Schiff, Chairman of the House Intel Committee and Russia conspiracy monger supreme, for “his “parody” reading of President Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing last month,” reports Fox News.
From Fox News:
The resolution to censure Schiff — who has become a favorite target of Republicans for his role in the Trump impeachment inquiry — was first introduced late last month by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, and has the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., among other ranking Republicans in the lower chamber of Congress.
Democrats have the majority and control the floor in the House, but Republicans could still attempt to force a vote on the matter.
“Schiff simply does not have the gravitas that a weighty procedure such as impeachment requires,” Biggs wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. “He has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office.”
Fox News has requested comment from Schiff’s office.
Last month, Mary blogged about the fake quotes Schiff used:
As if we did not need more proof that the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is insincere from the Democrats.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the king of hyperbole, began the hearing with DNI Director Joseph Maguire with fake quotes from the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
…Schiff previously described the phone call as a mafia-like shakedown and “far more damning” then he could possibly ever imagine.
The transcript did not show any of that. It told the story of Trump showing support for Ukraine as it still battles a war with Russia in the east.
Schiff has a habit of voluntarily stepping in it, as our previous coverage illustrates:
