(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – Over the weekend, former President Donald Trump demanded that any Republican who voted against Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) censure face a primary challenge.
On Truth Social, Trump wrote:
“Anna Paulina Luna is a STAR. She never gives up, especially in holding total lowlifes like Adam “Shifty” Schiff responsible for their lies, deceit, deception, and actually putting our Country at great risk, for which he should be imprisoned! He is a Leaker and a Scoundrel.
Any Republican voting against his CENSURE, or worse, should immediately be primaried. There are plenty of great candidates out there!”

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) put out a resolution last week that would suggest Schiff be censured and pay a $16 million fine if the House Ethics Committee decided he had lied while serving as a congressman.
BREAKING: FL Rep @realannapaulina introduces resolution to censure Adam Schiff and fine him $16 million for his role in illegal Russiagate spying on President Trump
Any Republican who doesn’t vote for this is showing their Deep State true colors

According to reports, 20 Republicans joined with Democrats to vote against the legislation. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), among others, claimed the fee was unlawful. Luna allegedly intends to present the resolution next week without the fine.
She tweeted, “See you next week, Adam,” after telling Schiff last week:
20 Republicans voted w/ Dems to stop the ethics investigation, censure, & fine of Adam Schiff.
So there is no confusion (as some did not accurately read the bill) I will be filing a privileged motion to censure & send Schiff to ethics for investigation.
See you next week Adam.

Schiff is targeted in her resolution for his involvement in promoting the Russia collusion fiction and serving as the Hill’s impeachment manager for the first of Trump’s impeachment hearings.
He frequently asserted that he had “circumstantial evidence” that Trump and his campaign “colluded” with Russia to win the 2016 election while serving as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Robert Mueller, the special counsel, did not uncover any proof of any criminal activity. In addition, Luna’s resolution charged Schiff with using misleading statements to raise money.
It demanded that he pay a fine equal to half of the $32 million used to investigate “collusion.”

During an impeachment hearing, Schiff performed covert witness interviews in the basement of the Capitol and presented a made-up discussion between Trump and the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. The Senate cleared Trump of the charges.
Schiff is running for a Senate seat in California.
For Speaker McCarthy to bring the resolution to censure and fine me $16 million to the floor is not only an embarrassment, it's an abuse of taxpayer dollars and resources.
They should get to work for the American people instead of trying to distract from Trump's legal woes. pic.twitter.com/kChUMJoYqF
