Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) joined a resolution to condemn and censure Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for his attempt during last week’s House Intelligence Committee hearing to mislead the public with a false retelling of a conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky.

Congressman Byrne said: “Last week, Adam Schiff used his opening statement to pass off as real a completely fabricated retelling of President Trump’s phone conversation with the Ukrainian President. His imagined conversation is clearly and entirely contradicted by the transcript of the call – the same transcript House Democrats did not wait to receive before launching their phony impeachment efforts. Adam Schiff’s scheme to mislead the American people through lies and deception is just a further example of why this whole impeachment charade is a sham. The American people are sick of this political posturing, and the House should do all in its power to protect what integrity remains of this institution by formally condemning his behavior and ending this politically-motivated impeachment inquiry.”

The resolution to formally condemn and censure Representative Adam Schiff was filed by Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ). Text of the resolution may be seen here.
