Omar Accuses GOP of “Putting Party over Country” After Their Condemnation of Schiff

Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted that she believes Republicans are “putting party over country” in their condemnation of Adam Schiff over his inaccurate re-telling of the Trump phone call.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi also recently defended Schiff during an appearance on GMA.

Fox News reports Rep. Ilhan Omar is accusing Republican lawmakers of putting their country aside after pursuing a resolution that would condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

“Give me a break!” she said, tweeting an article about House Republicans’ efforts. “This is the definition of putting party over country.”

Politico reported that House Republicans planned to force a vote condemning Schiff for using a committee hearing to parody a transcript of President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The resolution likely won’t pass the Democratic-controlled House but it reflected conservatives’ outrage over Schiff’s stunt last week. Trump, for example, has demanded that Schiff resign over the issue, while some lawmakers have called for him to step down as chair of the intelligence committee.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., tweeted on Wednesday. “Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough. I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”
