GOP Lawmakers Slam Dems for Tabling Resolution Condemning Schiff

House Republicans slammed their Democratic colleagues after a resolution to condemn and censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was tabled.

The vote was 218-185 with every Republican member against tabling the resolution. Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) joined Democrats in voting to table the resolution.

Republicans have been pushing to censure Schiff after he delivered a “more dramatic” version of Trump’s phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky, has IJR as previously reported.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise released a statement saying the Democrats “protected Chairman Schiff from any consequences”:

“I applaud Rep. Andy Biggs’ efforts to hold Chairman Schiff accountable for his actions. Shame on Democrats who, once again, protected Chairman Schiff from any consequences.”

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who introduced the bill last month, said Democrats “failed to uphold the integrity of the House of Representatives”:

“I am disappointed that my Democrat colleagues failed to uphold the integrity of the House of Representatives by condemning the actions of Chairman Adam Schiff. An impeachment proceeding to remove a duly elected President is one of the most solemn decisions a Member of Congress may be forced to make in their tenure. Instead of operating with integrity, Adam Schiff misled the American people about the content of the transcript being used to drive the most recent impeachment narrative against President Donald Trump.”

Republican lawmakers took to Twitter to blast the Democrats after the vote:

President Donald Trump thanked the Republicans who “voted for ‘US’ last night”:

Schiff accused Republicans of using the resolution to console themselves for not standing up to Trump:

In a statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Schiff “a great American patriot” and accused Republicans of trying to “cover up the truth”:

“Chairman Schiff is a great American patriot.  Our country is extremely well-served by his serious, smart and strategic leadership to protect our elections, national security and democracy – which sadly stands in stark contrast to Republicans in the Congress who cover up the truth, look the other way when the President invites foreign governments to interfere in our elections and vote against legislation to secure the ballot from foreign attacks.

Biggs vowed that despite his resolution being tabled, House Republicans will hold Schiff accountable.

Responses

  1. 11 of what remains of the Republican Party members who crashed this meeting WERE ON THE COMMITTEES holding the investigation meetings. It would have been 12, but one couldn’t join the flash mob. This is all for show.

    The impeachment rules were last updated in 2015 under House Leader Boehner. Got a problem with the rules? Take it up with the GOP.

  2. Confused James: “Your problem now is that there are signs of division and you don’t know what to do about it. It is foreign to you, so you lash out and blame others for your predicament.” Me

    I should have said more clearly that the division that I am talking about is now starting to grow within the conservative community and in what used to be the Republican Party*. That split is finally coming from a resistance to having a wannabe king in the Oval Office is doing and the forest fires he is using to destroy our institutions, society, decency, and laws. If given the chance in a second term, though, he will start setting fire to our Constitution and rights (fortunately, he is a little preoccupied to do this today).

    * The American Fascist Party (AFP) is a bit shorter.

    Just to set things straight, your nonsense, below, describes the partisan nightmare in this country that has been fomenting ideologically since the 1960-70s, especially since, and as a result of, the Nixon era’s Southern Strategy and ever since Newt Gingrich started messing with the real Republican Party.

    What we have today is not BECAUSE of King Donald The Loser, but it helped create him politically and make him possible, and it helps sustain him. We do have a chance to recognize what danger he is politically today (being a fascist) and stop him.

    He will be stopped, so do you have a Plan B? If you don’t, may I suggest that you start making one, soon?

    You are confused and are only repeating King Donald The Loser’s own talking point.

    ANYBODY who knows ANYTHING about liberals knows that they do NOT stick together. Their best description is: “trying to get liberals to agree on anything is like trying to herd cats”.

    Conservatives, on the other hand, have the money, infrastructure, and media clout to keep y’all in one cohesive group. Your problem now is that there are signs of division and you don’t know what to do about it. It is foreign to you, so you lash out and blame others for your predicament.

    1. Another lie about the divisiveness in the US actually created by the Kenyan Marxist and being expanded by those comrades like Sharpton, Socialist HRC, Commie Bernie, Tlaib, Omar, Marxist AOC, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, “G-D America” Wright, Keith Ellison, et al (too many dimwits to list here). Perhaps if the radicalized Lefties would re-examine their strategy instead of trying to destroy the United States and work WITH this President, America would be a much better place for all instead of working to turn the US into a Third World Shit hole under (a historically failed) Socialist/Communist domination. Nothing “confusing” about it when it comes to the origin of and purpose behind the Nation being divided = political POWER over every facet of our lives because “they know better” than we how we should live with what “they” permit us to live with.

  4. Another case of the Donkey Party protecting – then defending – its’ own. Nothing yet on Gaffe-a-Minute Biden’s with holding (leveraging) $1 Billion from Ukraine until they fired the prosecutor who was investigating corruption (and Biden’s worthless son); the same thing Trump is supposedly being illegally “impeached” for on a much lesser scale.

    And what about Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) who had “threesomes” with her now estranged husband and a 22 year old female staff member; and/or her lengthy sexual exploits with a male staffer? The Dimwit Party House’s own Resolution 6 (submitted by Rep. Steny Hoyer) and passed in January 2018 clearly PROHIBITS “fornication” by elected officials with their staff. What happens to her, Dimwits – – – other than being swept under the rug ’cause she’s an “outstanding; but prone patriot, etc., etc., etc.”?

    1. Rep Katie Hill has now apologized for her sexual flings (because she got caught violating the House ethics rules?) and is under investigation which will most likely be swept under the rug with the rest of the DemocRAT’s dirty little secrets.

    Since you decided not to include the punchline of my quote AND since the human mind interests you so much… don’t take MY word for this.

    “https://cmdi.com/2014/01/science-says-that-bill-clinton-was-right/”

  6. contusion-The absolute BEST part of your comment that shows your disconnect with reality, “so you lash out and blame others for your predicament.” Guess you have NEVER heard of hilliarly clinton?

  7. contusion-“ANYBODY who knows ANYTHING about liberals is that they do NOT stick together.” Stupidest thing EVER said here on IJR. What you hear on ONE liberal media outlet is what you hear on ALL liberal media outlets. “Conservatives, on the other hand, have the money, infrastructure, and media clout to keep y’all in one cohesive group.” 2nd Second stupidest EVER said here on IJR. Conservatives have “media clout”? WHERE? WHAT WORLD do you live in? Obviously, you live in “the dimension of imagination”.

    1. First, define who you think are the liberal media.

  8. “You just described every liberal. Good one librarians” Joshua Haggerty

    Really? I’ve known a few librarians in my life. They are good people.

    1. Bet you that there is NOT ONE librarian that would admit to knowing you., because they ARE GOOD people.

  9. Adam Schiff is a liar, deceitful person, he’s a danger to America he must be removed.

  10. Hell, I’m still waiting for the “proof” Schiff had on collusion. He kept saying he had it…well…we’re still waiting.

    1. You just described every liberal. Good one librarians

  12. Schiff is so proud of himself. Referring to the Republicans he said “They consoled themselves by attacking those who did.” confront President Trump. Gotta give it to the Dems right or wrong they stick together. Bet Schiff was picked last at recess games. Now he is showing them! His so called “parody” was at once confusing and painful to hear. Not behavior becoming to someone who is supposed to help run a country……into the ground.

  13. Schiff-for-brains is “a great American patriot?” Like who: Benedict Arnold?

  14. I expected as much from these damn Democrats. Protect their own but let’s impeach Trump just because we don’t like him or his policies. Elections are coming up and we the AMERICAN VOTER needs to vote these people out of office!

  15. What parody? We are not confused by the fact that Adam is a known liar. When he was caught up in the lie he tried to give to the citizens of this country, he called it a parody. Nothing about it was a parody. It was just a lie. It appears that your name shows where the real confusion lies.

  16. It is a known fact that Adam Schiff is a known liar, he should be tried for treasonous activity in trying to undermine the Constitution and in trying to take away the votes for a duly elected president.

  17. Anyone who believes general confuction obviously has no morals or ethics as ALL democats/communists believe in hate, lies, deceit and treason. bullschiff is a liar and a fake information talker but those qualities are exactly what it takes to be like confuction and the whole of the demonrat party

    1. Amen to that. I’ve often wondered exactly how someone can actually support the INSANITY that is the Democrat Party and their delusional agenda. Not even asking in a hateful way…just curious how anyone can do it.
