Rep. Adam Schiff Censured by House – RedState

The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), by a tally of 213 to 209, with six voting “present.”

As RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar reported earlier on Wednesday:

After announcing on Tuesday night that she’d secured the votes necessary for passage, freshman Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) brought a revised censure motion to the House floor Wednesday afternoon. Last Thursday the measure failed when 20 Republicans voted against it, many of them explicitly citing the provision for a $16 million fine, which they believe is not constitutional, as the reason. The new version of the motion does not include the fine.

In responding to the motion, Schiff said on the House floor, in part:

You honor me with your enmity. You flatter me with this falsehood. You, who are the authors of a big lie about the last election, must condemn the truth tellers, and I stand proudly before you. Your words tell me that I have been effective in the defense of our democracy and I am grateful.
