(Worthy News) - The House of Representatives easily defeated a Republican measure to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for his “parody” reading of President Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing last month.
Lawmakers voted along party lines 218-185 to postpone the resolution after heated debate over the impeachment inquiry into Trump, which Schiff is spearheading behind closed doors. However, 28 members, 12 Republicans and 16 Democrats did not vote at all on the motion.
The proposal had 173 co-sponsors and was introduced last month by Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, who leads the House Freedom Caucus. It immediately received support from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, and House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
