Support U.S. Rep. Biggs’ motion to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff

Oct. 16, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House to support a motion to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) offered by U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.):

“From the beginning, Adam Schiff has abused his power as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee through his false reading of what he wished President Donald Trump had said to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, rather than what President Trump actually said, and ought to be censured. Schiff’s deliberate fairy tale has done damage to the credibility of the House of Representatives and there’s no place for a chairman of a committee as important as the Intelligence Committee to demonstrate such a complete disregard for the truth.

“Every member of the House who believes in due process should support Rep. Biggs’ motion to censure Schiff, who is conducting a proceeding in secret behind closed doors without transparency, without the ability of the accused to have counsel present and without the right to cross-examine witnesses, overturning the precedents of every impeachment inquiry in modern history. Without due process, this inquiry lacks legitimacy and is nothing more than another witch hunt because Democrats couldn’t beat President Trump at the ballot box.”
