RINO ALERT: Rep. Adam Schiff Avoids Censure Over His Trump-Russia Collusion Claims; These 20 House Republicans Voted to Block Resolution to Censure Adam Schiff

Rep. Adam Schiff avoids censure over his Trump-Russia collusion claims:
The former head of the House Intelligence Committee was spared censure by his colleagues Wednesday for peddling accusations about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election cycle.
Twenty Republicans joined 205 Democrats in supporting a bid by Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) to kill the motion to censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). Seven other lawmakers — five Democrats and two Republicans — voted present, while 196 GOPers voted to punish Schiff.
The censure resolution, which would have also fined Schiff $16 million, was proposed by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.), who dubbed the 62-year-old Democrat a “criminal” earlier this month.
Schiff claimed Luna’s motion was retaliation for him leading the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump in 2019.
“Our GOP colleagues are using the leverage and resources of the House majority to rewrite history and promulgate far-right conspiracy theories — all to protect and serve Donald Trump,” he wrote in a letter to his colleagues Wednesday. “This resolution plainly demonstrates the lengths our GOP colleagues will go to protect Donald Trump’s infinite lies — lies that incited a violent attack on this very building.” --->READ MORE HERE
These 20 House Republicans voted to block resolution to censure Adam Schiff:
Twenty House Republicans joined Democrats on Wednesday in voting to table a resolution to censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), breaking from the majority of the GOP conference on a measure that was backed by leadership.
The House voted 225-196-7 to effectively kill the measure, which was spearheaded by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.). It called for censuring and condemning Schiff “for conduct that misleads the American people in a way that is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives.”
It also would have directed the Ethics Committee to conduct an investigation into Schiff’s “lies, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information.”
Twenty Republicans voted with Democrats in favor of the motion to table: Reps. Kelly Armstrong (N.D.), Lori Chavez-DeRemer (Ore.), Juan Ciscomani (Ariz.), Tom Cole (Okla.), Warren Davidson (Ohio), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Kay Granger (Texas), Garret Graves (La.), Thomas Kean Jr. (N.J.), Kevin Kiley (Calif.), Young Kim (Calif.), Mike Lawler (N.Y.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Tom McClintock (Calif.), Mark Molinaro (N.Y.), Jay Obernolte (Calif.), Mike Simpson (Idaho), Mike Turner (Ohio), David Valadao (Calif.) and Steve Womack (Ark.).
Schiff in comments after the vote said he was “frankly surprised.” --->READ MORE HERE
