In an unparalleled move, the Republican-led initiative to censure California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff over his claims about former President Donald Trump’s links to Russia was successful on Wednesday. Following the 213-209 party-line vote in the lower chamber to censure Schiff, six lawmakers voted present, Democrats immediately began chanting ‘shame.’

The new effort to censure Schiff came from Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., after her prior attempt was blocked by House Democrats under the Prior Question Motion last week, together with 20 Republicans who moved to table the resolution, effectively killing it. The chamber voted 225-196 to table the bill at the time.

Following the failed effort, Rep. Luna tweeted indicating she would take out the pro-Presidential punishment section in her bill after it suggested fining Schiff $16 million if the House Ethics Committee investigation decides he ‘lied, made misrepresentations, and abused sensitive information.’

This provision caused some House Republicans to join Democrats in killing the legislation. ‘The Constitution says the House may make its own rules, but we can’t violate other (later) provisions of the Constitution,’ tweeted Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky, before the first vote. A $16 million penalty is a breach of the 27th and 8th amendments, he stated.

Rep. Luna suggested that she had the votes to censure Schiff in a tweet on Tuesday, stating that a majority of the 20 Republican lawmakers who voted against the bill last week would back the revised resolution, as would lawmakers who were out of town for last week’s vote. Schiff announced last week that he was ‘flattered’ by the move to censure him and indicated the decision had been introduced as a distraction from Trump’s legal woes.

The former president is under investigation for allegedly mishandling classified documents and was arraigned in Miami at the start of this month, the same day Luna had introduced the bill to the floor. Schiff called the resolution a ‘terrible abuse of House resources’ and claimed that it was primarily an attempt to draw attention away from the legal scrutiny of Donald Trump.

Following in the wake of other recent occurrences, other House lawmakers have been censured. In February 2022, the Republican National Committee censured former Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the only Republicans on the House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack, for opposing Trump and working on the inquiry. Representative Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., was censured by the House last year in November 2021, with a 223-207 party-line vote, for posting an anime video in which he was edited to kill Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y, and attacking President Joe Biden.

Last week, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., launched a renewed effort to censure California Democrat Rep.

On Wednesday, the House passed the procedural hurdle before voting 213-209 along party lines to censure Schiff. Following the vote, Democrats in the lower chamber started chanting ‘shame.’
