I find it amazing that liar, leaker, and falsifier of evidence Adam Schiff, a Harvard Law School-trained lawyer, repeatedly demonstrates his ignorance of the United States and California Constitutions and his disdain for due process and equality under the law.
Schiff's comments on the Supreme Court decision* overturning affirmative action and holding that colleges and universities can no longer take race into consideration as an express factor in admissions are especially egregious given that Schiff's State of California banned affirmative action in public education in 1996 and reaffirmed the ban in 2020.
California ballot proposition 209, known as the California Civil Rights Initiative, is a 1996 California ballot proposition that amended the state constitution to prohibit state governmental institutions from considering race, sex, or ethnicity, specifically in public employment, public contracting, and public education.
It was reaffirmed in 2020 with the defeat of California ballot proposition 16, which would have amended the Constitution of California to repeal California ballot proposition 209.
Whereas the allegation that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to interfere in 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 (the “Intelligence Committee”), 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 alleging he had 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, never existed;
Whereas for years, Representative Schiff has spread false accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia;
Whereas on March 20, 2017, Representative Schiff perpetuated false allegations from the Steele Dossier accusing numerous Trump associates of colluding with Russia into the Congressional Record;
Whereas once again abusing his privileged access to classified information, Representative Schiff released a memo justifying the accuracy of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application on Trump associate Carter Page, of which was later found by Inspector General Horowitz to have 17 major mistakes and omissions, provoking FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer to state unequivocally that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “misled the FISC”;
Whereas as ranking minority member and Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Representative Schiff behaved dishonestly and dishonorably on many other occasions, including by publicly, falsely denying that his staff communicated with a whistleblower to launch the first impeachment of President Trump;
Whereas as part of his impeachment efforts, during a hearing on September 26, 2019, Representative Schiff misled the public by reading a false retelling of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky;
Whereas on March 28, 2019, every Republican member of the Intelligence Committee signed a letter calling for Representative Schiff’s immediate resignation as Chairman;
Whereas Representative Schiff hindered the ability of the Intelligence Committee to fulfill its oversight responsibilities over the Intelligence Community, an indispensable pillar of our national security; and
Whereas these actions of Representative Schiff misled the American people and brought disrepute upon the House of Representatives: Now, therefore, be it
(1) the House of Representatives censures Adam Schiff, Representative of the 30th Congressional District of California, for misleading the American public and for conduct unbecoming of an elected Member of the House of Representatives;
Adam Schiff is unfit for office, should be expelled from the House of Representatives, and disbarred in any jurisdiction where he holds a license to practice law. Schiff is unfit for the U.S. Senate as a replacement for the retiring Senator Diane Feinstein.
We are so screwed if this progressive communist democrat becomes a U.S. Senator.
