House Republicans to Censure Schiff Tomorrow
President Trump's top allies in the House have Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff in their crosshairs.

The California Democrat is leading the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

The escalation follows a scathing letter signed by all nine House Intelligence Committee Republicans who accuse Schiff of conducting impeachment-related proceedings in a "highly irregular manner."
Per the New York Post:

The resolution, introduced by Arizona Republican Andy Biggs, who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, claims that Schiff, a California lawmaker, "manufactured a false retelling" of Trump's telephone call in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"His egregiously false and fabricated retelling had no relationship to the call itself," it adds.

House Republicans hope to try to force a vote on the measure Monday evening, lawmakers told NBC News.

Schiff enraged Republicans with his recounting of the conversation during a heated House hearing.

Schiff claims his remarks were a failed attempt at humor.
