Only one hour before Trump’s tweets blasting Rep.Adam Schiff, Minority House leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), announced that the House will move to censure Chairman Adam Schiff tomorrow.
Rep. McCarthy appeared on Maria Bartiromo’s show today where he discussed how Rep.Schiff is putting politics before the truth, as he repeatedly lies in his sick quest to undo the results of the 2016 presidential election.
Tomorrow, we will move to censure Chairman Adam Schiff.
If Democrats don’t join after listening to him lie repeatedly, it will say a lot about their priorities—putting politics over the truth. pic.twitter.com/EizcqkCuDj

Freedom Caucus member, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who initiated the effort to condemn and censure Chairman Schiff, also announced on Twitter that as of tonight, there are 173 members of Congress who have co-sponsored his motion and that they will take a vote tomorrow night.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) resolution, H. Res. 604, to condemn Schiff for retelling a fabricated conversation between Trump and Zelensky.
“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.”
Here’s the video of the shameful performance by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, where he fabricates quotes from the president during the hearing with DNI Joseph Maquire. Schiff later called his performance a “parody.”
My jaw is on the floor.
“Intelligence” Committee Adam Schiff just fabricated, out of thin-air, the contents of the Trump phone call with Ukraine’s President.
Not a word he says here is true. Not. A. Word.

There are 197 Republicans currently serving in the House…where are the other 24 Republicans? And why aren’t they holding Chairman Schiff responsible for his actions?
