Representative Andy Biggs has introduced a motion to condemn and censure Adam Schiff who is Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
The motion comes after Schiff’s – as Biggs puts it – “blatantly false retelling” of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Schiff is taking heat after he fabricated quotes from President Trump during the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire’s testimony before lawmakers yesterday. He later acknowledged his remarks were a “parody” of what Trump said.
From Breitbart: Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) on Friday introduced a motion to condemn and censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for performing a fabricated conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during his opening statement at a panel hearing Thursday morning.
“During yesterday’s hearing, Chairman Schiff’s opening statement included a blatantly false retelling of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian president. Democrats previously initiated an impeachment inquiry, which leads to one of the most serious, constitutional duties of Members of Congress: removal of the President of the United States,” Biggs, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement. “Through this process, if the President has committed high crimes or misdemeanors, Congress may overturn the election of the President and the will of the American people. It is therefore inexcusable to toy with the process and mislead the American public with such a statement.”
Although the White House released Wednesday a transcript of the Trump-Zelensky call, Schiff made-up his own transcript that he read ahead of the testimony of acting DNI chief Joseph Maguire in which he accused the president of engaging in quid pro quo with the intent of exchanging U.S. military aid to Ukraine for an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and 2020 White House hopeful Joe Biden.

This is what we need right now in Congress. Someone who is willing to take a Democrat to task for stupid and hateful behavior towards the President of the United States of America. The man who was CHOSEN FAIRLY by the people.
