Florida Rep. Ana Luna filed a resolution on Wednesday evening to expel Rep. Adam Schiff, formerly the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, from Congress alleging that he pushed a false narrative to the American people in the Trump-Russia investigation.
“Adam Schiff lied to the American people. He used his position on House Intelligence to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and abused the trust placed in him as Chairman. He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives,” Luna said in a press release Wednesday, May 17.

Republicans, like Luna, have been vocal that lawmakers should face the consequences for the report after the Durham Report found significant FBI failures and no evidence that Donald Trump’s campaign was coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
“I don’t want to go into specifics, but I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial. But as I’ve said all along, there’s plenty of evidence of collusion,” he told “Meet The Press” in 2017.
Following the freshman’s congresswoman’s announcement, Schiff struck back in a Twitter post, saying that a “MAGA Republican” wants payback.
