Last week, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced a resolution to censure and condemn Schiff for his role in pushing the Russia collusion hoax and for being the manager for the first of Trump’s impeachment hearings on the Hill. She recommended a $16 million fine if the House Ethics Committee finds him to have lied in his duties as a congressman.
Twenty Republicans voted with Democrats to kill the measure. Some, such as Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), said the fine was unconstitutional. Luna plans to reintroduce the resolution in the coming week but reportedly without the fine.
She told Schiff last week, and also tweeted, “See you next week Adam.”
Trump posted on Truth Social:
Anna Paulina Luna is a STAR. She never gives up, especially in holding total lowlifes like Adam “Shifty” Schiff responsible for their lies, deceit, deception, and actually putting our Country at great risk, for which he should be imprisoned! He is a Leaker and a Scoundrel. Any Republican voting against his CENSURE, or worse, should immediately be primaried. There are plenty of great candidates out there!

On May 17, 2023 — five days after Special Counsel John Durham had released a report stating that the FBI, by launching an investigation into alleged collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian agents, had “failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law” — Republican Representative Anna Paulina Luna introduced a resolution to expel Schiff, a longtime promoter of the Trump-Russia hoax, from Congress. Moreover, Luna released multiple statements that same day, including the following:
- “Schiff lied to the American people. He used his position on House Intel to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars. He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives.”
- “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. Ethics should investigate.”
