WLTR previously reported that the vote to censure California Democrat Adam Schiff failed to take place; however, the vote is back on today.
On Wednesday lawmakers will gather to vote on whether or not Schiff will face accountability and punishment for his role in spreading the false Russia collusion narrative.
What is interesting to note is that the new vote will take place on the same day as John Durham’s groundbreaking testimony before Congress.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna announced via Twitter:
I have called up my censure motion and will be bringing the vote to hold Adam Schiff accountable to the floor tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/pL8numVYNL

Censure vote will be tomorrow. A majority of 20 are switching their vote to support the new resolution and some members who were out of town will be voting with us. Based on our count, Adam Schiff will be investigated by ethics and censured. Thank you to my colleagues for working…

Just The News confirmed:
At least eight Republicans are indicating that they will support the new censure resolution after many of them expressed concerns over the possibility of fining Schiff.
Democrats hope to table the motion, but they are less hopeful they will succeed this time around.
Dinesh D’Souza asked, “Should Adam Schiff be charged and thrown in jail?”

Laura Loomer exposed the 20 GOP members who voted in favor of Schiff and writes:
“Here is the list of the 20 “Republican” members of Congress who voted to protect Adam Schiff today during the vote on Rep Luna’s resolution to CENSURE Schiff. Schiff committed treason when he perpetuated the Russia Collusion Hoax lie as a member of the House Intelligence Committee. #LockHimUp
These “Republicans” should all be primaried because they aren’t Republicans. They are Democrats and uniparty enablers.”

The Hill explained:
At least three of those GOP defectors have publicly said they will support the new censure resolution. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters earlier in the day that he expects the revised resolution to pass the House.
Of the changes made between this week’s and last week’s resolutions was nixing a non-binding “whereas” clause that said if the Ethics Committee found that Schiff “lied, made misrepresentations, and abused sensitive information,” he should be fined $16 million.
That dollar figure, according to Luna, was half the amount of money that American taxpayers paid toward the investigation into potential collusion between Trump and Russia.
