    Due to his completely made up diatribe at the beginning of the hearing a week or so ago. He just made it up, and now he is getting called out on it.

    He needs to be kicked out of Congress. He lied for 2 years about having evidence of collusion, now he fabricates a transcript even though the actual transcript had been released. What an idiot.


    A motion to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his “parody” reading of President Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing last month is gaining steam with House Republicans, as Fox News has learned 125 lawmakers have now signed on as co-sponsors.

    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.

    Schiff, who is leading one of the committees investigating Trump in the impeachment inquiry announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been under fire from conservatives for the “parody” of the president’s call with Zelensky that he read at the testimony last month of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

    Maguire was on Capitol Hill to defend his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint detailing how Trump pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

    “I have a favor I want from you,” Schiff said while appearing to read from a paper. “And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it, on this and on that.

    “Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years,” McCarthy said in a tweet announcing that he signed on to co-sponsor Biggs’ resolution. “Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough.”

    Sane, patriotic Americans are not interested in the diversion tactics of Trump’s congressional co-conspirators.

    Honestly, just between him getting suckered by Russian comedians and this completely made up opening statement about Trump, he should be removed from the Intelligence Committee- at the very least. Out of Congress altogether would be better.

    schiff is a goofy bastard and should be jailed for treason, as well as stupidity. Any honest Democrat should be embarrassed to admit to being in the same party as him.

    This resolution is going nowhere. That said, there was no reason for Rep Schiff to make such puerile comments. These proceedings need no further help to promote political theater...
