Over 130 House Republicans Co-Sponsor Adam Schiff Censure

A resolution to formally censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has picked up 135 co-sponsors among House Republicans, Fox News reports.

The resolution was introduced last month by Congressman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), the new chair of the House Freedom Caucus, and seeks to censure Schiff for his deliberately false statements before the Intelligence Committee during a hearing last month.

At the hearing in question, Schiff pretended to read from the transcript of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, but fabricated the entire “quote.” Schiff later claimed that his statement was simply a “parody.”

Despite the massive outpouring of support from Republicans, the resolution is all but guaranteed to not pass in the House, which is controlled by Democrats.
