Washington D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement after House Democrats failed to hold Rep. Adam Schiff (CA-28) accountable for lying to the American public:

“Each member of Congress must uphold a high standard of honesty and integrity. When it comes to matters of our national security, that responsibility is even greater. Chairman Schiff has fallen short in his duty. From claiming he had evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign to covering up his committee’s relationship with the whistleblower, he has demonstrated a pattern of lying to the American people on matters of intelligence. The grave missteps of Chairman Schiff call for the necessary response of the full House of Representatives to vote to censure. Today’s vote only further illustrates the Democrats’ ignorance to Chairman’s Schiff’s reckless behavior and underscores their blind determination to damage this country.”
