Triggered Dems Erupt on House Floor as Adam Schiff's House of Cards Tumbles Down

I honestly never thought I’d see the day when disgraced Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) would be on the receiving end of any sort of meaningful rebuke or punishment over his shameful behavior during the course of Donald Trump’s time in office, where Schiff relentlessly perpetuated, among other things, the Trump/Russia collusion hoax nonsense, using it as the basis for both undermining Trump’s presidency and attempting to impeach him.


But one clue that Schiff was going to face the music in this Congress was when House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) effectively kicked him off the House Intelligence Committee along with Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) in January, citing “integrity” as a major factor.

“I cannot put partisan loyalty ahead of national security, and I cannot simply recognize years of service as the sole criteria for membership to this essential committee. Integrity matters more,” McCarthy noted at the time, with the emphasis on integrity.

And now, nearly five months to the day later, Schiff got his just deserts once again, with the GOP-led House voting to censure him 213 to 209 (six voted “present”) after modifications were made to the resolution originally drafted by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.), which initially failed because some Republicans objected to the call for a $16 million fine.

Because Democrats are gonna Democrat when they get called to account, the House floor erupted with cries of “shame” and “nay” as McCarthy read the resolution and noted that it passed:


As Rep. Angy Ogles (R-Tenn.) pointed out, Democrats practically held a pep rally for Schiff during proceedings in a scene straight out of bizarro world, which was pretty illuminating considering what he was censured over:

As to which falsehoods Ogles was referring, we turn it over to Rep. Luna herself:

Let’s also not forget how Schiff, in an act of pure spite, also released the personal phone records of, among others, then-ranking member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), two of then-President Trump’s personal attorneys including Rudy Giuliani, as well as The Hill journalist John Solomon in the House’s Intel Committee’s Dec. 2019 impeachment inquiry report.

“But most of all what it did was expose that Schiff, for all of his pompous bluster, is doing exactly what he has accused President Trump of doing: using his power to investigate his political opponents,” Sen. Rand Paul said at the time.


Honestly, expulsion would have been a more fitting punishment for Schiff, but in the grand scheme of things, this will do.

The only question that remains at this point will be if Schiff can effectively use this to his advantage in his campaign to replace the retiring Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Or will Californians finally wise up to his embarrassing and self-serving machinations?

As always, stay tuned.
