An effort by House Republicans to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for his actions in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump failed with a 218-185 party-line vote on Monday.
Context: The resolution, crafted by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), centered on Schiff's mocking interpretation of Trump's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a committee hearing last month. In the resolution, Biggs called it "a false retelling" that "misled the American people." The incident prompted Trump to brand Schiff "a sick man" at the time.
