In a stunning move that has rocked Capitol Hill, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has introduced a resolution to expel Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from Congress. The fiery Congresswoman’s move comes only days after the Durham report concluded that the Trump-Russia probe never should have been opened. Furious at Schiff’s repeated claims of having “abundance” of evidence of “collusion” – despite all evidence to the contrary – Luna has called for an ethics investigation into Schiff’s misconduct.
Congresswoman Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced her resolution to expel U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from Congress on Wednesday, as he repeatedly claimed that there was an “abundance” of evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government despite the recent conclusion by White House special counsel John Durham that the Trump-Russia probe should have never been opened.
The Florida Congresswoman tweeted, “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. Ethics should investigate.”
Schiff tried fundraising off of the resolution against him, tweeting, “A MAGA Republican Member of Congress just filed a motion to expel me from the U.S. House of Representatives. I stood up to Donald Trump and held extreme MAGA forces accountable. Now they want payback. They’ll go after anyone who defends the rule of law.”
The move comes after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy hinted at Schiff’s expulsion while speaking to reporters on Tuesday.
Schiff has knowingly used his position on the House Intelligence Committee to push a lie that has ripped apart our country, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and authorized spying on a US President.
Schiff’s actions have raised serious concerns about his fitness for office. The California congressman’s repeated claims of collusion are completely unfounded and are nothing more than an attempt to undermine the duly elected President and his administration. It raises questions about Schiff’s allegiance and motives, and his blatant disregard for the truth is unacceptable.
Despite the fact that both the Mueller and Durham reports have exonerated the Trump campaign of any wrongdoing, Schiff has continued to push his false narrative.
His dismissal of the Durham report as “flawed” is nothing more than a desperate attempt to save face and cover up his own misdeeds. The fact of the matter is that Schiff has been caught in a lie and should be held accountable for his actions.
It is time for ethics to investigate Schiff’s behavior and hold him accountable for his blatant disregard for the truth. This is not about politics, it is about the integrity of our democracy and the trust that the American people place in their elected officials. Schiff has betrayed that trust and it is high time that he faces the consequences of his actions.
In the wake of the damning Durham report, it is abundantly clear that Rep. Adam Schiff misled the American public and engaged in serious misconduct. His push for the Trump-Russia collusion narrative was an absolute obsession, even after both the Mueller and Durham reports cleared the Trump campaign of any wrongdoing. Luna’s resolution to expel Schiff from Congress is a much-needed call for accountability in a political world that has lost its moral compass. Schiff’s dismissal of the Durham report as “flawed” is yet another instance of his willingness to bend the truth for personal and political gain. The American people deserve nothing less than honesty, transparency, and accountability from their elected representatives, and Schiff has failed to deliver on all counts. It is time for him to go.
