House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) initiated a motion to censure Democrat Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff. 185 Republicans were expected to vote yes on the resolution this afternoon. Speaker Pelosi, however, blocked the motion from a vote. Rep. Biggs took to Twitter to share a video of his impassioned speech on the House floor, where he outlined the reasons why the Republicans believe Chairman Schiff should be censured and should “immediately resign” over his “reckless disregard for the truth.” Biggs also blasted Rep. Adama Schiff for his “secret impeachment inquiry” designed to “undermine the will of Americans.”
Adam Schiff may not have been held accountable tonight, but the American people are very much aware of his reckless disregard for the truth. They will not tolerate his calculated words and actions as he continues his secret impeachment inquiry to undermine the will of Americans. pic.twitter.com/mVp5DMTy4g

Leaving the Capitol after voting to #CensureSchiff.
He has shirked his responsibilities as Chairman, abandoned his duty as a Congressman, & forgotten his sense of fairness & justice throughout this impeachment hoax.
It’s shameful that not one Dem voted to hold him accountable. pic.twitter.com/Gr5pqEzj0j

Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) tweeted about the dishonesty Rep. Adam Schiff has exhibited: From promising a secret Mueller bombshell (that didn’t exist) to fabricating @realDonaldTrump and Erdogan’s phone call, Adam Schiff has lied to and misled Americans for years. Democrats blocked@RepAndyBiggsAZ Schiff censure bill tonight, but we won’t stop defending the truth.

Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) blasted the Democrats over Schiff’s unscrupulous behavior.
There were at least 30 more tweets we didn’t show from Republican lawmakers who shared their disgust for Chairman Schiff and their fellow Democrat lawmaker’s underhanded and dirty tricks. It should also be noted that Democrat lawmakers have been dragging America through this nightmare for almost 3 years in an effort to undo the results of the 2016 presidential election.
