On Monday, Democrat House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff issued a statement on Twitter targeting Republicans as impeachment efforts continue to move forward.
Schiff has faced heavy criticism from Republicans, who are angry at the lack of transparency stemming from secret hearings that are being conducted as part of the Democrat-led “impeachment inquiry” against President Trump.
Republicans were also united in an effort led by Representative Andy Biggs to censure Schiff over “lying” to the American people about facts of the whistleblower case and his handling of the impeachment inquiry. However, the censure resolution was blocked on Monday evening by Democrats, who unanimously voted against it.
Right after the censure resolution was blocked, Schiff tweeted:
“It will be said of House Republicans, When they found they lacked the courage to confront the most dangerous and unethical president in American history, They consoled themselves by attacking those who did.”
Upon seeing the tweet, Congressman Andy Biggs fired back with a statement that replicated the format of Schiff’s tweet, but turned the tables on Democrats in their impeachment push. See Below
Rep. Biggs tweeted:
“It will be said about House Democrats,” Schiff said, When they realize they don’t have the votes to win a presidential election, There’s no principle they won’t sacrifice to attack the one who does.” See Below
