Matt Gaetz Makes Mockery of Adam Schiff with Major Resolution
Over the course of the last several years, it has become rather obvious that California House Democrat Adam Schiff’s entire shtick is about grandstanding against Donald Trump and the MAGA Movement.
There’s no legislating going on here. No constituent-driven progress. Just Schiff showboating around Capitol Hill trying to make his less-than-stellar soundbites stick.
And, worse still, leaking sensitive information while he’s at it.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has had enough of Schiff’s reckless behavior, however, and is now preparing to do something about it.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., introduced the “Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses,” or PENCIL Resolution, on Thursday that would bar Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., from accessing any classified information.Trending:
“The resolution expresses the sense of the U.S. House of Representatives that Congressman Adam Schiff should not have access to classified information, should be investigated by the House Ethics Committee, and should have his comments made during any proceeding of Congress regarding Russian Collusion and the Trump campaign be officially struck from the record,” Gaetz’s office said in a statement.
Gaetz wasn’t pulling any punches.
“Every member of Congress can access classified information by virtue of their election. Only the most egregious actions would warrant removal, and Adam Schiff has undoubtedly crossed the Rubicon,” Gaetz told Fox News Digital. “Democrats have willfully ignored the national security consequences of members like Schiff misrepresenting and leaking classified information to the press.”
Former President Donald Trump had previously given Schiff the nickname “pencil neck”, which presumably led to Gaetz’s biting acronym.
