On Friday, Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) joined Fox News' “Mornings with Maria” to discuss recent discoveries that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) knowingly lied to push the narrative that the 2016 presidential election was influenced by the Russians.
Murphy was so adamant about Schiff's wrongdoing that he called for an ethics investigation into the California Democrat.
“At the very least, Maria, we’ll need to do an ethics investigation on him and then the true light’s brought forth and whether he gets kicked out of Congress or reprimanded or what, you should not be able to lie in Congress,” Congressman Murphy said, as reported by Breitbart. “I mean, it’s just — it’s a basic fact. It’s something that goes back to the American people, having faith in our system.”
“And Adam Schiff and Swalwell and all these guys who would literally lie just to push their narrative, rather than actually be truthful with the American public is absolutely disgusting,” he said. “Yeah, they’ll get their comeuppance. Karma is real. And it will happen with them.”
Murphy's call for an ethics probe comes as Speaker of the House Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has pulled both Rep. Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) off of the House Intelligence Committee for politicizing the committee and being a security risk, respectively.
“Adam Schiff openly and repeatedly lied to the American public,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “The House Intelligence Committee is no place for politics. I'm going to restore it to its original role of keeping our country safe.”
“Adam Schiff openly lied to the American public,” McCarthy told reporters during a press conference this week. “He told you he had proof. He told you he didn't know the whistleblower. He put America for four years through an impeachment that he knew was a lie.”

“At the same time, we had Ukraine. At the same time we had Afghanistan collapse,” the speaker explained. “Was that the role of the Intel Committee? No. So what I am doing with the Intel Committee is bringing it back to the jurisdiction it's supposed to do. Forward looking to keep this country safe. Keep the politics out of it.”
In addition to Schiff being kicked off the committee, McCarthy also took issue with Swalwell who has become a security risk.
“I was very clear early on. Let me phrase something very direct to you. If you got the briefing that I got from the FBI, you wouldn’t have Swalwell on any committee,” McCarthy explained. “And you’re going to tell me that other Democrats couldn’t fill that slot. He cannot get a security clearance in the private sector.”
Swalwell was found to have close ties with a Chinese spy named Fang Fang back in 2020, as reported by Axios.
Wow @SpeakerMcCarthy shreds Eric Swalwell in this.
Great energy from McCarthy lately!

It seems like the two California Democrats are finally facing some consequences for the lies they pushed throughout the Trump administration. An ethics probe into Schiff will hopefully bring more light to how Rep. Schiff manipulated the American people for his own political gain.
