All we can say is it‚Äôs about damn time.
Maybe legislators like Adam Schiff think the American people aren‚Äôt paying attention to his sham of an investigation (holding interviews in secret, really?!) but we are. And that it‚Äôs taken Republicans this long to do anything other than complain about him is not exactly a great look either.
So when we saw Fred Keller tweet out that he is co-sponsoring the resolution to censure Schiff we did a little fist-pump.
.@RepAdamSchiff has engaged in lies, misrepresentations, and obfuscation during this "impeachment inquiry." I'm co-sponsoring this resolution because he needs to be held accountable. https://t.co/dDQiqdVP5c

Here‚Äôs the resolution, McCarthy was talking about it nearly a week ago.
We are calling up a resolution that condemns Chairman Adam Schiff and the way he has abused his power to mislead the American people. Read the complete censure resolution here: pic.twitter.com/sLDazCXRMz

Great. Appreciate the effort‚Ä¶BUT bottom line: Adam Schiff will still go about his shady dishonest deceitful business. Censure has no legal ramifications and very little political. Just a gesture of disapproval basically.

It certainly feels like no one in D.C. is ever really held accountable.
Adam Schiff has blatently and knowingly lied to the American people so many times that I find it absolutely a statement of the corruption, elitism and disconnectedness of our own congress that he is still there and chairing committee.

Until Schiff is completely removed, there is no integrity in Congress. As long as Schiff holds office, Congress is a sham.

He needed to be censured during the ‚ÄúRussia‚ÄĚ probe too and nothing was done !!!

Chairman Schiff: ‚ÄúMy summary of the president‚Äôs call was meant to be at least part in parody. The fact that‚Äôs not clear is a separate problem in and of itself‚Ä¶‚Ä¶" In addition, the phone con memo is only a portion of the conversation, which is identified on the memo. 1/2

That whole parody thing by itself should be enough to censure Schiff for brains.
Whereas Adam Shifty is a pencil neck and is probably celebrating national Period Day!

Ugh, National Period Day.
Thank you Mr. Congressman

From us as well.
That‚Äôs what he gets for being full of Schiff.
Yes, yes we could write Schiff jokes all day long ‚Ä¶ he just makes it so easy.
