Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) responded to the bombshell resolution to expel Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from Congress with a warning.
As Slay News reported earlier, GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced a resolution on Wednesday to remove Schiff from the House of Representatives.
Calls have been mounting to remove Schiff from Congress following the release of Special Counsel John Durham’s explosive final report earlier this week.
Durham’s report proved the claims linking President Donald Trump to Russia were a hoax that was fabricated by Hillary Clinton with the knowledge of the highest-profile Democrats, who helped to spread the lie.
Schiff repeatedly lied to the American people that he had “evidence” that linked Trump to Russia while pursuing phony “investigations” into the hoax.
Boerbert responded to Luna’s resolution with a statement that likely echoes the sentiment of her Republican colleagues in the House.
“This is how it is done,” Boebert said.
“Schiff is a complete disgrace to Congress and has no place in this great institution.
“I look forward to voting to expel him without a second of hesitation.”

Luna said: “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.
“The Durham Report makes clear that the Russian Collusion was a lie from day one and Schiff knowingly used his position in an attempt to divide our country.”

Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hinted yesterday that he agrees.
“It raises the question about Adam Schiff,” McCarthy said.
“Remember when Adam told the American public he had proof?
“Remember when he said he didn’t know the whistleblower?
“What he put America through when he openly lied to us.
“It raises questions about his character and whether he should be in Congress.”
