Republicans are hopping mad after their resolution to censure Adam Schiff was tabled by Democrats in the House today.
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives on Monday blocked a Republican effort to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff over statements he has made related to an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.
As expected, the Democratic-controlled House voted 218-185 to block consideration of the Republican measure, thus shelving it.
Republicans accused Schiff of misleading the public by, among other things, saying he did not know the identity of a whistleblower who reported that Trump pressured Ukraine’s newly elected president to investigate a U.S. political rival, Democrat Joe Biden who is running for president.
I joined House Republicans tonight in a vote to censure & condemn Rep. Schiff for misleading the American people to advance the Democrats’ partisan & secretive impeachment process against @realDonaldTrump. Rep. Schiff should be held accountable for leading this shameful scheme.— Hal Rogers (@RepHalRogers) October 22, 2019
Adam Schiff lied about:— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) October 22, 2019
*Russia collusion for 2 years
*what @realDonaldTrump said to Ukraine
*his contact with the “whistleblower”
House Democrats' refusal to hold him accountable shows how partisan their impeachment charade truly is!
Then there’s this idiot:
I know when the list of every Republican fool who votes for Schiff’s censure at the peril of our countries National Security comes out I’m donating to the Democrat running against them.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) October 21, 2019
Well, it’s really easy. Every Republican voted to censure, every Democrat voted against, so yeah, don’t stress your last working brain cell on that list, Patty.
