Rep. Andy Biggs introduced a motion to condemn and censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff after he ‘blatantly false retelling of‘ Trump’s Ukraine call.
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.
The Ukraine Call Transcript was so damning that Adam Schiff had to completely rewrite it and make up quotes that weren’t in it.pic.twitter.com/bkB6RxLFjV

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.

Rep. Adam Schiff totally made up my conversation with Ukraine President and read it to Congress and Millions. He must resign and be investigated. He has been doing this for two years. He is a sick man!

Finally, a Republican who is willing to take a Democrat to task for irresponsible and hateful behavior towards the duly elected President of the United States of America.
Schiff’s reading of a fabricated transcript played well in the MSM but it was also an abuse of his position as committee chairman.
At a minimum, he should be stripped of all committee assignments as an object lesson to any other politicians who may be tempted to abuse their positions to create false narratives for the MSM.
Censure, I suppose doesn’t really mean anything. It’s not like it’s punishment. These traitors have no shame. But, I would go ahead and censure him and expose him for the lying filth he is. If he had any ethics at all, he’d resign in shame.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
