Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise tells it like it is on the contrived impeachment nonsense.
He says “Adam Schiff is making a mockery of Congress. And he needs to be stopped.”
President Trump agrees with him and says Schiff should be impeached.

Rep. Biggs introduced a motion in the House of Representatives to censure Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., “because he has disqualified himself to lead any impeachment proceedings against President Trump by his outrageous statements and conduct, and deserves no sympathy.”
“While Trump-hating House Democrats are backing Schiff in partisan solidarity,” Biggs says, “anyone taking a fair look at his actions over the past two years must conclude that he is unfit to lead the Democrats’ never-ending pursuit of the impeachment of the duly elected president of the United States.”
From Bigg’s column published by Fox News:
First, Schiff has spent much of the last three years falsely proclaiming to the world that there was clear and unequivocal evidence that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded, conspired, cooperated and coordinated with Russians to bring about Trump’s election victory and Hillary Clinton’s defeat.
Oops. Turns out that not even the highly partisan investigators of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team agreed with Schiff’s absurd claim. Schiff had gone way out on a limb, then sawed it off with his erroneous predictions. His single-minded intense focus to remove Trump from office trumped his ability to view the evidence.
Later, Schiff was spoofed by a couple of comedians into admitting that he would love to receive dirt from the Ukrainians about President Trump. The YouTube video of that faux pas is making the rounds again thanks to my colleague Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
As my resolution of censure against Schiff states, his phony version of the Trump-Zelensky phone call was “an egregiously false and fabricated retelling” that “had no relationship to the call itself.”
My resolution goes on to state that “these actions of Chairman Schiff misled the American people, bring disrepute upon the House of Representatives, and make a mockery of the impeachment process, one of this chamber’s most solemn constitutional duties.”
Biggs goes on to explain how the Democrats are not following House rules regarding the actual legal impeachment process, which he says will create an impeachment inquiry that “will be unfair, without due process, and presided over by an individual who is so biased that he has made impeachment his No. 1 goal since the day after Trump was elected president in 2016.”
President Trump told reporters last week that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is “a fraudulent crime on the American people.”
Biggs agrees, saying, “the American people should make it clear to House Democrats that the will of the voters must not be negated in the heavy-handed and unfair manner that is driven by Trump Derangement Syndrome rather than the facts.”
