He’s up Schiff’s creek…
According to a Fox News report, GOP Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna is looking to slap California Rep. Adam Schiff with a $16 million-dollar fine for his lies about former President Trump.
“The GOP Conference agrees that Adam Schiff has betrayed the trust of the American people, purposely abused positions of extreme authority, lied continuously, and as such, must be held to account,” Luna said. “Accordingly, the resolution requires Rep. Schiff to pay a $16 million dollar fine, half of the cost American taxpayers were forced to pay for the Russia hoax investigation.”
From Fox News:
Luna’s resolution said as chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Schiff had a position of “extreme trust” that gave him access to sensitive information not available to other members.
But Schiff “abused this trust” by citing evidence of collusion that later special counsel reports showed did not exist.
“By repeatedly telling these falsehoods, Representative Schiff purposely deceived his Committee, Congress, and the American people,” the resolution said. It noted that Schiff “lent credibility” to the Steele dossier, supported a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against Trump aide Carter Page, and publicly accused Page of being a Russian collaborator.
“Representative Schiff exploited his positions on HPSCI to encourage and excuse abusive intelligence investigations of Americans for political purposes,” it said. “Representative Schiff used his position and access to sensitive information to instigate a fraudulently based investigation, which he then used to amass political gain and fundraising dollars.”
