Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on House Republicans’ attempt to censure Chairman Adam Schiff:

“Chairman Schiff is a great American patriot.  Our country is extremely well-served by his serious, smart and strategic leadership to protect our elections, national security and democracy – which sadly stands in stark contrast to Republicans in the Congress who cover up the truth, look the other way when the President invites foreign governments to interfere in our elections and vote against legislation to secure the ballot from foreign attacks.

“What the Republicans fear most is the truth.  The President betrayed the oath of office, our national security and the integrity of our elections, and the GOP has not even tried to deny the facts.  Instead, Republicans stage confusion, undermine the Constitution and attack the person of whom the President is most afraid.

“The American people want the truth.  The House will proceed with our impeachment inquiry to find the facts and expose the truth, guided by our Constitution and the facts.  This is about patriotism, not politics or partisanship.”
