GOP Rep. Steve Scalise slammed House Democrats’ latest move to impeach the President Wednesday; saying left-wing lawmakers are using “soviet style tactics” to remove Donald Trump from the White House.
“Adam Schiff’s opening statement, he didn’t read the transcript from the whistleblower, he read his own version. A false version. It shows how unserious they are about this process,” said Scalise.
“It also shows that they continue to mislead the American people and hide what the real facts are… Members of Congress should be able to see it… These kind of Soviet style tactics shouldn’t be allowed,” he added.
House Democrats are engaged in “Soviet style” tactics in their effort to attack @realDonaldTrump.

125 Republican members of the House of Representatives co-sponsored a bill this week that would formally censure Rep. Adam Schiff over his botched “parody” reading of a transcript between President Trump and the leader of Ukraine.
“The resolution to censure Schiff — who has become a favorite target of Republicans for his role in the Trump impeachment inquiry — was first introduced late last month by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, and has the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., among other ranking Republicans in the lower chamber of Congress,” reports Fox News.
“Schiff simply does not have the gravitas that a weighty procedure such as impeachment requires,” Biggs wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. “He has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office.”
