Shifty pencil-neck Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was censured by Congress on Wednesday. This is one of the harshest penalties that a Member of Congress can receive outside of expulsion.
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. After propagating the Russia collusion hoax on behalf of Hillary Clinton and lying to the American people while abusing his position on the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff deserves far worse. But at least this is a start.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced the first resolution to censure Schiff last week. It included a provision to fine Schiff $16 million—one-half of the cost of the Mueller witch hunt that failed to find any Russians or any collusion. That resolution failed when 20 cowardly Republicans curled up in a fetal position, whimpered, and urinated on themselves in fear of actually fighting back against the Democrats.
With the $16 million fine removed this week, the resolution to censure Adam Schiff for being a liar passed by a vote of 213 to 209, with six Members abstaining. Schiff was then forced to present himself in the well on the House floor as Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) read the charges in the resolution to him. It was a momentous occasion, and all the Democrats in the House treated it with the seriousness and solemnity that it deserved.
They howled like a pack of red-assed baboons while flinging their own poo at the walls to try to drown out Speaker McCarthy, in total violation of House decorum. McCarthy got through it in the end, though, and now Adam Schiff’s reprehensible behavior, lying and abuse of power will be forwarded to the House Ethics Committee for a full investigation.
There have only been a couple of dozen censures passed against House Members in the past 230 years. It’s only happened twice in the past 40 years.
The resolution stated that Schiff “spread false accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
It also notes that Schiff “perpetuated false allegations from the Steele Dossier accusing numerous Trump associates of colluding with Russia into the Congressional Record.”
The thing that was so awful about it was that Schiff was on the House Intelligence Committee and could simply claim that the “evidence” was classified. He said the evidence of Russia collusion was “hiding in plain sight” and that it was “more than circumstantial.”
Schiff helped to destroy innocent people’s lives with his lies. The FBI and Mueller’s team of witch hunters may have done all the dirty work, but Schiff was basically the public face of the entire Russia collusion hoax. He was on TV every night yammering about it. When Tucker Carlson noted that Schiff didn’t really seem to have any evidence of the claims he was making, Schiff called him a puppet of Putin.
Robert Mueller sent jackbooted FBI thugs to kick down Paul Manafort’s door. They arrested him, seized all his assets, put him on trial, convicted him, and sent him to prison until President Trump finally pardoned him.
Roger Stone was bankrupted by the legal fees that resulted from his pre-dawn arrest over the Russia collusion hoax. The reputations of Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were destroyed. Gen. Mike Flynn got fired and had his reputation destroyed as well.
Adam Schiff deserves much more than the censure that just happened. Maybe something will come of the Ethics Committee investigation into his actions, but that is unlikely. Frankly, he deserved the $16 million fine. He also deserves to be expelled from Congress and to serve a long prison sentence for all the harm that he caused.
Now that he’s been formally censured, and the lame and almost pointless Durham Report has proven that the entire Russian potty dossier was completely fake and baseless, maybe some people will start suing him in civil court. Manafort, Page, Papadopoulos, Flynn, and even President Trump himself could make a pretty good case that Adam Schiff knowingly defamed them.
Schiff is running for the open US Senate seat in California next year, so hopefully this censure and rebuke by his colleagues will help to derail that plan. Can you imagine having that bug-eyed, sanctimonious liar in the US Senate for the next couple of decades?
