Twenty-three House Republicans have yet to back a movement to condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for deliberately fabricating a conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Breitbart News reported Friday that 173 House GOP lawmakers have cosponsored a bill crafted by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ), known as H. Res. 604. H. Res. 604 would condemn Schiff for reading a fictional phone call between Zelensky and Trump into the record.
Schiff also allegedly lied about having never spoken to the Ukrainian intelligence officer “whistleblower.”
Biggs wanted to force a vote on the legislation this week, but delayed the move after House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) passed away. The Arizona conservative will reportedly force the vote Monday night.
The legislation has quickly gained support from Republicans across the political spectrum. House Freedom Caucus conservatives, moderates, and House GOP leadership have all backed the legislation.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), and House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) have sponsored the resolution to condemn Schiff.
