Thursday, Georgia Republican Representative Austin Scott stated that California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff  (D-CA) had seriously damaged the credibility of the Intelligence Committee.

"He absolutely destroyed the credibility of the Intel Committee, which is one of most important committees in Congress," Scott said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show, as Just The News reported.

"It is imperative that that committee operates in a bipartisan fashion in the best interest of the American citizens, and he simply hijacked it for his own personal good," he continued.

Scott asserted that the censure received by Schiff was well deserved.

"He (Schiff) earned exactly what he got," Scott stated. "And let me tell you, the unfortunate part of it is his party is so crazy, they might make him a U.S. senator for his belligerence."

The Censure

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was censured by the House of Representatives on June 21, a week after the initial resolution to do so was tabled, as The Epoch Times reported.

The measure was approved by a vote of 213–209 along partisan lines. Six Republicans voted "present."

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced a resolution condemning Schiff, a Democrat, for allegedly spreading false information about former President Donald Trump. Schiff has been referred to the House Ethics Committee for investigation upon passage of the resolution.

The resolution's privileged status necessitated a vote in the House. 20 Republicans joined 205 Democrats in voting to dismiss the initial resolution last week.

The significant difference between the initial and revised resolutions is that the revised resolution does not include a $16 million sanction for Schiff should he be held accountable by the House Ethics Committee for "falsehoods, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information."

The proposed $16 million punishment is equal to fifty percent of the cost to taxpayers of Robert Mueller's investigation.

Another Republican Push Against Democrats

On June 22, House Republicans were successful in delaying a vote on an impeachment motion brought by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), sending it instead to two committees.

The Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, which are in charge of overseeing immigration law and impeachments, respectively, received the resolution by a 219-208 party-line vote.

Usually, the Judiciary Committee is the first to look into an impeachment. Boebert, though, took a different route with her privileged resolution, avoiding the committee process and giving House leaders just two days to arrange a vote. The unexpected action posed a danger to the party's unity and its ongoing inquiries into the Biden family.
