Congressman Adam Schiff is facing a historic call for action from fellow member of Congress, Anna Paulina Luna, a Republican Representative from Florida.
She has submitted two resolutions into Congress: one to expel Schiff, and one to censure and fine him a whopping $16 million.
Luna’s move comes after the Durham Report was published, a damning report which cast doubt on the origins of the Mueller Investigation into the Russian meddling in the 2016 Election.
Her stance is simple: Schiff mislead the American people and should be held accountable.
“Adam Schiff lied to the American people. He used his position on House Intelligence to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and abused the trust placed in him as Chairman. He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives,” Luna said.
It appears as though the American people are in agreement with Luna. Polls suggest that former President Donald Trump has gained a 19-point lead in Texas in the leadup to the 2024 Election, and there has been a major public backlash to the actions of Democrats in office, such as the dramatic refusal to convict Ted Cruz this month after conflict of interest.

What Luna and the American people cannot understand is the attempts at whitewashing these actions from politicians like Schiff.
The congressman has brushed off the Durham Report as a bias investigation, saying “this was an investigation that started in a flawed manner, it was conducted in a flawed manner, and its conclusion is a flawed conclusion.”
This is the same man who spent years perpetuating the Russian collusion lie, and he is yet to face any repercussions. It was obvious from the start that Mueller’s investigation was a farce; it was a waste of money and individuals like Schiff should not be allowed to abuse their positions of power with impunity.
The resolution proposed by Luna aims to rectify this issue; she wants Schiff to pay half the total cost of the Mueller investigation ($16 million), as a way of atoning for his mistake.
This fine would also send a strong message to all members of Congress that abuse of power has consequences, and would demonstrate how serious the issue of political corruption is becoming.
With any luck corrupt politicians like Adam Schiff will truly be held accountable, and efforts to move America towards a more positive political future and a more honest standard of politics will be implemented. It’s time for the people, to take back the power and make a change.
