Georgia congressman says Adam Schiff destroyed the credibility of the Intel Committee
Scott said the censure of Schiff was well deserved.
Georgia GOP Rep. Austin Scott said on Thursday that California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff had done real damage to the credibility of the Intel Committee.
"He absolutely destroyed the credibility of the Intel Committee, which is one of most important committees in Congress," Scott said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.
"It is imperative that that committee operates in a bipartisan fashion in the best interest of the American citizens, and he simply hijacked it for his own personal good," he continued.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to censure California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff after failing to do so in an earlier vote.
Schiff has received much criticism from Republicans for his role in investigating former President Donald Trump. Many of them said Schiff had lied and made reckless and partisan claims, including after the release of the Durham report, which indicated that the FBI began its investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign without any predicating evidence.
Scott said the censure was well deserved.
"He (Schiff) earned exactly what he got," Scott stated. "And let me tell you, the unfortunate part of it is his party is so crazy, they might make him a U.S. senator for his belligerence."
Schiff is running for the U.S. Senate in 2024, vying to replace 89-year-old Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
