The following article, GOP Rep. Introduces ‘PENCIL Act’ to Remove ‘Pencil-Neck’ Adam Schiff From Intel Committee, was first published on Flag And Cross.
California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff has been one of President Trump’s loudest critics from the start.
Schiff still believes, despite the Mueller report, that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Every day, it’s Russia this, Russia that.
At a recent rally, 45 referred to Schiff as “little pencil-neck.”
From Real Clear Politics:
President Trump targeted Rep. Adam Schiff, his chief Congressional critic, at his ‘Make America Great Again’ rally in Grand Rapids, Mich. Thursday night. The president called the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee “little pencil-neck” Adam Schiff.”
Trump said, “Little pencil-neck Adam Schiff. He’s got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen. He is not a long-ball hitter, but I saw him today, ‘Well we don’t really know, there still could have been some Russia collusion.’”
Now, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz has introduced the “PENCIL Act,” which aims to remove Schiff from the House Intel Committee and revoke his security clearance.
#BREAKING: Today I filed the “PENCIL Act,” expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that “Congressman Adam Schiff should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee and his security clearance immediately revoked.”

Gaetz supports President Trump like few others in Congress.
He also recently introduced a new bill to go after the likes of twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey.
From Daily Caller:
What’s interesting is that Gaetz is considering leaving Florida to head across state lines to take down Democrat Senator Doug Jones – in Alabama.
This would be possible due to the Yellowhammer state’s “one-day residency requirement.”
From The Hill:
The rumor had been bouncing around the Capitol for weeks but took a more serious turn in recent days when Gaetz began privately discussing the idea with fellow lawmakers.
A GOP lawmaker noted, “He’s talking about running for Senate in Alabama. They have a one-day residency requirement there. POTUS would probably endorse him.”
Sources close to Gaetz, 36, said that “people in Trump’s orbit” are personally encouraging the sophomore congressman to run for the Senate seat now held by freshman Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). Those Trump allies are pointing to Alabama’s liberal requirement that people can run for the Senate so long as they are 30 years old and have been a resident for a minimum of one day.
For 22 months, Democrats said there was “actual evidence” of collusion. Their principle Russia narrative was not truthful or credible.

I am convinced that at the state level, we have folks who are nimbler, more creative, more capable of meeting the needs of our citizens than the morass we find too frequently in Washington.
It turns out that in our country, freedom is popular. I’m for more of it. pic.twitter.com/CXQw73U3IN

Senator Gaetz has a nice ring to it for conservatives. To see him leave one state for another would be nearly unprecedented, which makes it all the more interesting.
Stay tuned for more!
