Representative Luna Files Privileged Resolution to Censure, Condemn, and Fine Representative Adam Schiff...

118th CONGRESS -- 1st Session

H. RES. 437

Censuring and condemning Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District.


May 23, 2023

Mrs. Luna submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Ethics


Censuring and condemning Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District.

Whereas the allegation that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 Presidential election has been revealed as false by numerous in-depth investigations, including the recent report by Special Counsel John Durham, which documents how the conspiracy theory was invented, funded, and spread by President’s Trump’s political rivals;

Whereas Representative Adam Schiff, who served as ranking minority member and then Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives (HPSCI), occupied positions of extreme trust, affording him access to sensitive intelligence unavailable to most Members of Congress;

Whereas for years Representative Schiff abused this trust by citing evidence of collusion that—as is clear from reports by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and Special Counsel Durham—does not exist;

Whereas by repeatedly telling these falsehoods, Representative Schiff purposely deceived his Committee, Congress, and the American people;

Whereas Representative Schiff lent credibility to the Steele dossier—a collection of debunked collusion accusations funded by President Trump’s political rivals—by reading false Steele allegations into the Congressional Record at a HPSCI hearing on March 20, 2017;

Whereas, once again abusing his privileged access to classified information, Representative Schiff composed a false memo justifying the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application on Trump associate Carter Page, which Inspector General Horowitz later found was riddled with 17 major mistakes and omissions, provoking FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer to state unequivocally that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “mislead the FISC”;

Whereas by publicly smearing Carter Page as a Russian collaborator and justifying spurious investigations of him, Representative Schiff contributed to the gross violation of a United States citizen’s civil liberties, thereby committing the very abuses HPSCI is tasked with identifying and thwarting;

Whereas, as HPSCI ranking minority member and Chairman, Representative Schiff behaved dishonestly and dishonorably on many other occasions, including by falsely denying that his staff coordinated with a whistleblower to launch the first impeachment of President Trump;

Whereas, as part of his impeachment efforts, during an HPSCI hearing on September 26, 2019, Representative Schiff recited a false, concocted rendition of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky;

Whereas Representative Schiff exploited his positions on HPSCI to encourage and excuse abusive intelligence investigations of Americans for political purposes;

Whereas 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; and

Whereas the American taxpayers paid $32 million to fund the investigation into collusion that was launched as a result of Rep. Schiff’s lies, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That—

(1) the House of Representatives censures and condemns Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District, for conduct that misleads the American people in a way that is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives;

(2) Representative Adam Schiff will forthwith present himself in the well of the House of Representatives for the pronouncement of censure;

(3) Representative Adam Schiff will be censured with the public reading of this resolution by the Speaker; and

(4) Representative Adam Schiff be, and is hereby, fined in the amount of $16,000,000.

What are they missing…

While Adam Schiff and his fellow partisan committee members investigated, prosecuted, and persecuted Donald J. Trump, he ignored:

  • Hillary Clinton’s breach of national security.
  • Hillary Clinton’s involvement with the Benghazi arms dealing.
  • Hillary Clinton’s involvement with Uranium One and the payments to the Clinton Foundation.
  • Hillary Clinton’s dirty tricks involving federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
  • Compromise of the DNC computer by foreign nationals and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s laptop.
  • Hunter Biden’s laptop.
  • Allegations of bribery and influence peddling concerning the Bidens.

And, Schiff shamelessly continues fundraising…

Schiff-senateStephen —

MAGA Republican Anna Paulina Luna of Florida just announced on the House floor that the vote to censure and fine me $16 million will happen within the next two days with GOP Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s personal support.


While the national media and political pundits focus their attention today on disgraced, twice-impeached ex-president Donald Trump’s arraignment in downtown Miami on 37 federal counts returned by the grand jury, MAGA Republicans are out for revenge against me personally.

Stephen, this vote to censure me — and even fine me $16 MILLION — could actually pass with a GOP majority.

The authors of the Big Lie are attacking me for telling the truth, and it’s blatant political retaliation for my efforts to hold Trump accountable for his abuses of power. For leading his first impeachment and Senate trial. For serving on the January 6th Committee to investigate the insurrection he incited on our Capitol. They believe I am effective — too effective — and so they’re trying to silence me.

We have to send Trump’s enablers in Congress a message loud and clear — no matter what attacks they throw at us, we will always fight back to uphold the rule of law and defend our democracy.

If you’re with me, I’m urgently asking you to rush a contribution of $10 or whatever you can spare before midnight to help my campaign fight back against these attacks.

If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:


This isn’t just an attack on me. It’s an attack on the very premise of constitutional oversight and accountability. And we have to fight back with everything we’ve got.

Thanks for standing with me at this critical moment.

— Adam


The creation and purpose of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence…

The United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) is a committee of the United States House of Representatives. Created in 1977, HPSCI is charged with oversight of the United States Intelligence Community—which includes the intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the following eighteen elements of the U.S. Government—and the Military Intelligence Program (MIP).

Here are eighteen elements of the U.S. Government, including various branches, agencies, and departments, as well as the Military Intelligence Program: 

  • Executive Branch
  • Legislative Branch
  • Judicial Branch
  • President of the United States
  • Vice President of the United States
  • Department of State
  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Justice / Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • Department of the Treasury
  • Department of Homeland Security
  • Department of Agriculture
  • Department of Commerce
  • Department of Labor
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Department of Transportation
  • Department of Energy
  • Department of Education

Military Intelligence Program (MIP) refers to the intelligence activities conducted by various military branches in the United States. It is not an independent element of the U.S. Government but is part of the broader intelligence apparatus. The MIP encompasses multiple agencies and organizations responsible for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating intelligence information for military purposes. Some of the notable components within the Military Intelligence Program include:

  • Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
  • National Security Agency (NSA)
  • Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
  • National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
  • National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)
  • Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM)
  • Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI)
  • Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR)
  • Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA)

Bottom line…

Adam Schiff is guilty of dereliction of duty as well as being a co-conspirator in an effort to interfere in a presidential election and various criminal acts involving a cover-up of criminal wrongdoing. He deserves a prison sentence and the loss of his law license, not an expulsion from Congress.

Just like the DOJ/FBI's attempt to protect Hillary Clinton and the disclosure of emails that would implicate her in a pay-for-play bribery scheme involving foreign entities donating to the Clinton Foundation, it is my belief that the DOJ/FBI are doing the very same thing to protect Joe Biden. Both involve doing everything in their power to cripple a Trump candidacy or to render his administration impotent.  

We are so screwed.
