The Hill has more details on the resolution to censure Adam Schiff:

A House conservative has introduced a measure to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) in an attempt to condemn the Democratic chairman for using "parody" when recounting details of President Trump's call with the leader of Ukraine.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman-elect Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) introduced the resolution Friday shortly after Trump took to Twitter to demand Schiff’s resignation over his remarks, which focused on the president's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff had pointed to a reconstituted transcript of the conversation released by the White House, but paraphrased some points and offered an exaggerated version of the discussion, including saying that Trump¬†directed Zelensky to ‚Äúmake up dirt on my political opponent‚ÄĚ a full ‚Äúseven times.‚ÄĚ

Schiff's remarks during the hearing Thursday were met with backlash from Republicans, who argued it was inappropriate given the nature of the hearing, where acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified on his handling of a whistleblower complaint filed over the Trump call.

The whistleblower complaint and mounting scrutiny over Trump's efforts to push Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were integral in House Democrats' decision to move forward with a formal impeachment inquiry this week.

Biggs's measure¬†asserts that Schiff‚Äôs comments were an ‚Äúegregiously false and fabricated retelling" that "had no relationship to the call itself,‚ÄĚ alleging ‚Äúthese actions of Chairman Schiff misled the American¬†people, bring disrepute upon the House of Representatives, and make a mockery of the impeachment process, one of¬†this¬†chamber‚Äôs most solemn constitutional duties."

The resolution also includes language alleging that members of the House Intelligence Committee ‚Äúhave lost faith‚ÄĚ in Schiff‚Äôs ability to be objective as chairman and that his remarks hindered the committee‚Äôs ability to carry out its oversight responsibilities.


Fox News said the following about the Republicans who have moved to sponsor the bill:

A motion to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his ‚Äúparody‚ÄĚ reading of President Trump‚Äôs July phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing last month is gaining steam with House Republicans, as Fox News has learned 135 lawmakers have now signed on as co-sponsors.

The resolution to censure Schiff -- who has become a favorite target of Republicans for his role in the Trump impeachment inquiry -- was first introduced late last month by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, and has the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., among other ranking Republicans in the lower chamber of Congress.

Democrats have the majority and control the floor in the House, but Republicans could still attempt to force a vote on the matter.

‚ÄúSchiff simply does not have the gravitas that a weighty procedure such as impeachment requires,‚ÄĚ Biggs wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. ‚ÄúHe has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office.‚ÄĚ

Fox News has requested comment from Schiff's office.

Schiff, who is leading one of the committees investigating Trump in the impeachment inquiry¬†announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been under fire from conservatives for the ‚Äúparody‚ÄĚ of the president‚Äôs call with Zelensky that he read at the testimony last month of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Maguire was on Capitol Hill to defend his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint detailing how Trump pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
