A freshman Republican House member is taking on Rep. Adam Schiff over his repeated lies about former President Donald Trump and his alleged ties to Russia.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) on Wednesday unveiled a bill that seeks to remove Schiff (D-Calif.) from Congress over his claims of collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
“Knowingly using your position on House Intel to push a lie that ripped apart our country, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and authorized spying on a US President and then proceeding to double down on the lie within days of the Durham report coming out makes you unfit for office,” Luna said in a tweet. “Ethics should investigate.”
“Schiff lied to the American people. He used his position on House Intel to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars. He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives,” Luna said in a separate tweet from her official congressional account.
After Special Counsel John Durham released his report this week revealing that the FBI began its investigation of the Trump campaign without any evidence to support the collusion allegations, Schiff blasted the report as “flawed.”
“This was an investigation that started in a flawed manner, it was conducted in a flawed manner, and its conclusion is a flawed conclusion,” Schiff told MSNBC.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) refused to reappoint Schiff to the intelligence panel earlier this year, citing a lack of “integrity” and his “misuse of this panel” during the Trump administration.
