Schiff censured by House for 'false accusations' of Trump-Russia collusion

June 24, 2023

Democrat Representative Adam Schiff was censured in a House vote on party lines this week.

Schiff has been formally censured for his outspoken promotion of allegations that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.

The vote to censure Schiff passed 213 to 209.

"Six voted present, including five Republicans on the House Ethics Committee, who are now required to probe Schiff as part of the resolution, and Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO)," Breitbart reported.

"Democrats, who unanimously opposed the vote, could be seen rallying around Schiff at the conclusion of it, chanting 'Shame! Shame!' and 'Disgrace!' at House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as the speaker stood up to read the resolution," reported Breitbart.

"I have all night," said House Speaker McCarthy about the disruptions.

"Censures are rare and serve as the highest form of punishment in Congress outside of an expulsion," Breitbart reported. "Only two other members have been censured in the last nearly four decades, including, most recently, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) for sharing a cartoon of himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)."

The congressman's censure came after allegations that he "spread false accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia."

Schiff also "perpetuated false allegations from the Steele Dossier accusing numerous Trump associates of colluding with Russia into the Congressional Record."

"The resolution was led by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), who initially included a $16 million fine against Schiff, which she said would compensate for a portion of what American taxpayers ultimately paid for the Trump-Russia federal probes. Several Republicans opposed the fine though, including Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who said it was unconstitutional, leading Luna to excise that provision," reported Breitbart.
