House Republicans are expected to try and censure Adam Schiff today for his lies with regard to this ‘impeachment inquiry’:
REUTERS – Republican lawmakers will bring a motion to censure the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, on Monday, a largely symbolic act by the minority party to express dismay about the impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican.
“How many times has he (Schiff) lied to us? He should be censured,” said the top Republican in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, on Friday.
McCarthy said Schiff misled the public by saying he did not know the identity of the whistleblower who reported that Trump had pressed Ukraine’s president to dig up information about a political rival, Democrat Joe Biden.
That report precipitated the investigation into whether Trump should be removed from office. McCarthy said the whistleblower had met with Schiff’s staff.
That was published on Friday.
Fox News Chad Pergram suggested this morning that Republicans are still expected to censure Schiff but that this attempt will likely be derailed by Democrats:
House GOPers expected to try to censure Schiff today over impeachment inquiry. Expect Democrats to table effort or vote to set it aside

For Trump’s part, he’s all in on censuring Schiff:
Censure (at least) Corrupt Adam Schiff! After what he got caught doing, any pol who does not so vote cannot be honest….are you listening Dems?

Even if Republicans can’t force a vote on censuring Schiff and this motion fails, it’s good to see Republicans fighting to expose Schiff. But don’t expect the MSM to report on this much, as they are all in on impeachment.
