Major Alert: House Vote – 45 Republicans Join The Fight

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been on almost every cable news program for over two years claiming that he has evidence that will bring down President Donald Trump.

The media ate it up and gave Schiff all the air-time he wanted to smear the president with baseless allegations.

But things took a turn recently when Schiff got busted telling outright lies about the president during a hearing before the House last week regarding the Trump-Ukraine phone call.

After getting called out by Republicans for lying, Schiff claimed he was joking and that his totally fabricated version of the call was meant to be “parody.”

And now, a whopping 45 House Republicans support a resolution to condemn Schiff for deliberately lying before Congress.

The resolution was sponsored by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs, who said that Schiff’s stunt “inexcusable” and that he misled the American people in his statement.

As noted by Breitbart, below are all 45 House Republican who support the resolution to condemn Schiff:

Republicans have mounted an offensive against Schiff for lying about the conversation between Trump and Zelensky to advance Democrats pipe dream of impeachment.

Keller said that Schiff has led a “rigged political witch hunt” and that Republicans must hold him accountable. The Pennsylvania conservative said:

We now know what we’ve suspected all along: the ‘impeachment inquiry’ being undertaken by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff, and the socialist House Democrats is nothing short of a rigged political witch hunt that seeks to delegitimize our duly-elected President. Chairman Schiff has made a mockery of this solemn process and the Democrats leading the impeachment charge have strayed far afield of the Constitutional impeachment parameters. Their continued pursuit of impeachment is wrong, the nonsense must stop, and Chairman Schiff should be held accountable for his actions both prior to the committee’s hearing last week as well as during. It’s time to stop with the litigating and investigating and return to legislating for the benefit of the American people.

House Republican Leader McCarthy said that Schiff is “desperate” to damage Trump.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years. Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter Wednesday. “Enough is enough. I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”
