GOP Rep Matt Gaetz Files Ethics Complaint Against Schiff

Pro-Trump Representative Matt Gaetz has filed a formal ethics complaint against impeachment inquiry leader Adam Schiff.

According to Town Hall:

Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz has filed an ethics complaint against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff for the way he has been handling the impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump. Specifically, Rep. Gaetz says that Schiff has been “distorting  @POTUS ’s call with President Zelensky, Lying to the public about ‘Russian collusion’, and blocking members of Congress from attending impeachment depositions.”

“Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution gives unprecedented power to the Intelligence Committee Chairman, Adam Schiff,” Gaetz told reporters ahead of filing his complaint. “That’s deeply troubling to me for a few reasons. First, Adam Schiff has proven in this process that he cannot adhere to the fundamental principles of fairness. Second, and I would say most important for my work today, is that Adam Schiff has violated the ethical rules of the House of Representatives.”

Citing a series of rules that Gaetz alleges Schiff broke, the congressman adds that “Schiff has lied to the American people and abused his power. We won’t allow him to continue trampling the Constitution.”

This complaint comes a day after Rep. Jim Jordan Ohio said that Rep. Schiff would not let Republicans on the Intelligence Committee question Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in the probe. “When we asked [Vindman] who he spoke to after important events in July, Adam Schiff says, ‘no, no, no, we’re not going to let him answer that question,'” Jordan said.

Gaetz has long been an ardent defender of President Trump and this latest move against Adam Schiff shows he is completely in his corner.

  1. For the better part of the last three years Schiff has told lie after lie. He lied as bout past contact with the so-called whistle blower, gave a totally fictional reading of HIS version of the phone call, lied time and time again while alleging he had “absolute” proof of Russian confusion, not to mention a total abuse of power, subverting of The Constitution xx violation of his oath of office amoung other crimes.

  2. When you first start telling lies, you have to keep telling lies; or admit you told a lie.
    Schifty is faced with a decision ha can’t bear. He has to be right all the time. He will keep telling lies, because it’s his way of life now.
    Maybe Californians will come to their senses in 2020, and do without him . . .
