Chairman Aguilar: House Republicans continue to waste the American people’s time with right-wing conspiracy theories

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, House Democratic Caucus Chair Pete Aguilar spoke on the House Floor to stand up against House Republicans’ baseless resolution to censure Congressman Adam Schiff.

CHAIRMAN AGUILAR: Mister Speaker, I rise today in strong opposition to the resolution.

It is shameful that the temporary Republican majority continues to waste the American people’s time with baseless accusations and right-wing conspiracy theories.

Instead of joining House Democrats to address the gun violence epidemic, we are forced to debate on gas stoves and partisan grudges. 

This resolution today is motivated by the same groups and individuals who to this day promote the lie that the 2020 election was stolen. A lie that Adam Schiff stood up to time and time again.

And I’ve had the privilege of serving alongside Adam in the California delegation and on the January 6th Committee. He has never shied away from taking on the toughest fights. And he is not going to be intimidated by anyone, including the former President or his allies.

I’m proud to stand with the Gentleman from California today and urge my colleagues to join me in opposition to this resolution.
