UPDATED: Biggs Introduces Motion To Censure Schiff, 61 Co-Sponsors Secured

Rep. Andy Biggs speaks on House floor

Last week, Arizona Rep.Andy Biggs introduced a motion to condemn and censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Biggs and his 73 co-sponsors are condemning Schiff “for his false retelling of the conversation between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky during a recent hearing on the whistleblower complaint.”

In a September 26 House Intelligence Committee hearing, Schiff gave a dramatic reading of his interpretation of a memo released by the White House regarding Presidents Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Zelensky.

Schiff described his interpretation as “the essence of what the president communicates” in his call with Zelensky “in not so many words.”

Later in the same hearing, Schiff was forced to admit that it was merely a “parody.”

  1. Thank you Representative Biggs. Schiff needs to be removed from office and charged with treason.

  2. I’m not defending Schiff, but how does that compare with: “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!).”

    With all due respect to his supporters, the man is nuts! Dangerously so.

    • Where has your outrage been since this man won an election for President of the United States, and even before the election where he has been slandered, illegally investigated by the current POTUS’ BHO’s DOJ. He has been vilified by the MSM, the Establishment, the Swamp, and the Never Trumpers. He could not ever get a fair and honest account in the MSM.
      His tweets are his way to get out his message, and the very vocal minority, and well organized attackers are the targets. He has exposed them all, and that alone shows why he was elected by a majority of the Legal Voters.

      • Yes, indeed, a President getting things done and petty politicians trying to hamper him. But then again it has been that way ever since that president… what was his name? Oh, yeah, George Washington.

      • Actually, BS, tRump was elected by the Electoral College. Clinton (whom I did not vote for) got millions more actual votes. The only illegal vote I’ve heard about was here in Arizona, by a Republican who voted twice. And neither me nor the MSM nor the Establishment nor the Swamp, etc. made up “I, in my great and unmatched wisdom….” Can you spell egomaniac?

        • Are you ignorant to the Constitution? Or do you stand against it and for taking away the votes of US citizens thereby overthrowing the US Government by removing the duly elected President?

    • You prefer American Marines and Army risking limb and life? Or you just can’t understand how he’s torching your hate for him?

  3. Schiff should be matched out of the house and tried for treason. Sadly Schiff’s little “parody” is turning America into a banana republic. I couldn’t help but notice the lack of condemnation from house members on the left side of the aisle. I’m guessing that’s because democrats inherently can’t distinguish the difference between failing to tell the truth and outright lying.
    Remember this is the grounds for the partisan coup.
