House Leader McCarthy Says Vote To Censure Rep. Adam Schiff Will Take Place Monday

This morning, Reuters reported that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has confirmed that a vote to censure Rep. Adam Schiff is scheduled for Monday.

The resolution to censure Schiff – who has become a favorite target of Republicans for his role in the Trump impeachment inquiry – was first introduced late last month by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus. It quickly gained the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., among other ranking Republicans in the lower chamber of Congress, FOX News reports.

Schiff, who is leading one of the committees investigating Trump in the impeachment inquiry announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been under fire from conservatives for the “parody” of the president’s call with Zelensky that he read at the testimony last month of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Schiff has defended the version of the phone call he read at the testimony and chalked up his fictional summary of the controversial phone call to parody.

“My summary of the president’s call was meant to be at least, part, in parody,” Schiff said. “The fact that that’s not clear is a separate problem in and of itself. Of course, the president never said, ‘If you don’t understand me I’m going to say it seven more times’- my point is, that’s the message that the Ukraine president was receiving in not so many words.”

This is a developing story.

More to come.
