45 Republicans Have Signed On to Condemn Adam Schiff

The movement to condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for making up a phone conversation President Trump never had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky just got stronger, as 45 Republicans have signed on.

‘Inexcusable’

Sponsored by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs, H. Res. 604 quickly gained support throughout the House Republican conference. Biggs said that it was “inexcusable” of Schiff to “mislead the American public with such a statement.”

Breitbart News reported that “Although a public list of cosponsors only shows 18 Republicans supporting the resolution, an internal GOP list obtained by Breitbart News shows that 45 Republicans have joined the list of GOP lawmakers to condemn Schiff.”

Breitbart went on to note that, “This represents a growing movement of Republicans to fight back against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) and Democrats’ move to impeach Trump.”

Schiff’s misrepresentation of the conversation between Trump and Zelensky sparked widespread backlash, and despite Democrats defenses of the congressman, the duplicity of his tactics were evident to many.

Republican Congressman Fred Keller announced Thursday that he will join this growing list of Republicans. Keller said that Schiff has led a “rigged political witch hunt” and that he must be held accountable.

“We now know what we’ve suspected all along: the ‘impeachment inquiry’ being undertaken by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff, and the socialist House Democrats is nothing short of a rigged political witch hunt that seeks to delegitimize our duly-elected President,” Keller said. “Chairman Schiff has made a mockery of this solemn process and the Democrats leading the impeachment charge have strayed far afield of the Constitutional impeachment parameters.”

“Their continued pursuit of impeachment is wrong, the nonsense must stop, and Chairman Schiff should be held accountable for his actions both prior to the committee’s hearing last week as well as during,” Keller added. “It’s time to stop with the litigating and investigating and return to legislating for the benefit of the American people.

‘He has no credibility to be a chairman’

House Republican Leader McCarthy called Schiff “desperate” in his efforts to harm the President.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years. Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter Wednesday. “Enough is enough.”

“He has no credibility to be a chairman,” McCarthy said on Fox News Thursday.

“He has no right to be the prosecutor in this case,” McCarthy added.
