Rep. Anna Paulina Luna intros bill to axe Rep. Adam Schiff over Trump election claims
Washington DC - Republican Representative Anna Paulina Luna has introduced a bill to remove Democrat Adam Schiff from Congress following revelations from the recently released Durham report.
On Wednesday evening, Luna took to Twitter to share a photo of her resolution, and called for an investigation to be launched.
"Knowingly using your position on House Intel to push a lie that ripped apart our country, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and authorized spying on a US President and then proceeding to double down on the lie within days of the Durham report coming out makes you unfit for office," she wrote in the tweet.
A report released earlier this week from former special counsel John Durham, who was appointed by former president Donald Trump, concluded that the FBI did not have sufficient evidence to investigate possible collusion between Trump and Russia during the 2016 elections.
While the report did not call for charges against those involved, or reveal any damning revelations, Trump allies, such as Luna, believe it proves definitively that the Russia investigation was always a "hoax" as Trump claimed.
Schiff, who led the Russia investigation by the House Intelligence Committee, has repeatedly stood by his allegations, and continues to do so.
Adam Schiff responds to Anna Paulina Luna's resolution
On Thursday, Rep. Schiff responded to Luna's resolution, arguing that Republicans just don't have the guts to stand up to Trump.
"A MAGA Republican has filed a motion to expel me from Congress," Schiff tweeted. "When this chapter is written, it will record: When Republicans lacked the courage to stand up to the most unethical president in history, they consoled themselves by attacking those who did."
"I'm not backing down," he added.
He also included an interview clip from MSNBC where he describes Durham's report as an attempt to prove a "deep state conspiracy theory" that he says turned out to be "a bust."
Luna represents Florida's 13th District, and is the first Mexican-American woman elected to Congress from the state.
She is also relatively new to Capitol Hill, only having been elected to her House position earlier this year.
If Luna's Twitter feed reveals anything, it's that she's a die hard Trump supporter.
