House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) declared on Wednesday that he signed a resolution censuring House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for conducting a fabricated conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years. Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter. “Enough is enough. I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) launched a movement on Friday to reject and censure Schiff for conducting the false discussion, stating in a declaration that the event was “inexcusable” to “mislead with such a statement the American public.”

Although the White House released a transcript of the Trump-Zelensky call last week, Schiff made up his own transcript that he read ahead of the testimony of acting DNI chief Joseph Maguire in which he accused the president of quid pro quo in an attempt to exchange U.S. military aid to Ukraine for an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of former vice president, and Joe Biden.

Democrats to subpoena White House for Ukraine documents

House Democrats will subpoena the White House on Friday for documents related to his dealings with Ukraine, citing “flagrant disregard” of their previous requests for information.

House oversight and reform chairman Elijah Cummings wrote Wednesday in a memo to committee members that action is necessary because multiple requests have been ignored by the White House.

Pompeo said Tuesday the Democrats are trying to “intimidate” and “bully” career officials into appearing and claims it would be “not feasible” as demanded.
