It’s such a shame we don’t have a Republican Senate to make all of this come true. As Twitchy reported Wednesday, Sen. Josh Hawley introduced the Preventing Elected Leaders from Owning Securities and Investments Act, better known as the PELOSI Act. Rep. Matt Gaetz is following suit and is introducing the Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses Act, or the PENCIL Act. The PENCIL Act is meant to keep classified information away from Rep. Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff.

Henry Rogers reports for The Daily Caller:

As Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy blocked Adam Schiff from sitting on the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced legislation Thursday that would call on the House to vote on if Schiff should be banned from accessing and viewing any and all classified information.

The Daily Caller first obtained the legislation, which is titled the PENCIL Act after former President Donald Trump’s nickname of Schiff, “Pencil-Neck.” PENCIL stands for “Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses” Resolution.

“Congressman Adam Schiff led the effort for years to weaponize lies from the Clinton campaign and a corrupt Department of Justice to smear President Trump while destroying any trust the country had left in America’s intelligence agencies” Gaetz told the Caller before introducing the legislation.

Normally this editor doesn’t like clever names for legislation (like the PATRIOT Act), but PELOSI and PENCIL are both brilliant.
