Rep. Lauren Boebert lent her voice on Thursday to the growing chorus of Republican lawmakers ready to oust Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) from the House after special counsel John Durham’s bombshell report dropped on Monday.
Durham was appointed by former Attorney General Bill Barr in 2019 to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe known as “Operation Crossfire Hurricane.”
On Monday, Sean Davis, the co-founder and CEO of The Federalist, took to Twitter to share a series of tweets disclosing that his publication had obtained the 306-page report and proceeded to outline several of the conclusions reached within it.
“Special prosecutor John Durham concluded that ‘neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation,’” Davis wrote.
Durham’s report noted: “FBI records prepared by [Peter] Strzok in February and March 2017 show that at the time of the opening of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI had no information in its holdings indicating that at any time during the campaign anyone in the Trump had been in contact with any Russian intelligence officials.”
“Durham concluded the Steele dossier was a complete joke and that the FBI failed to corroborate any of its key claims: ‘Our investigation determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting,’” Davis tweeted.
Schiff repeatedly the now-revealed lie that Trump “colluded” with Russia and often claimed he had “evidence” to prove it. He didn’t.
Now, Boebert and others want him ousted from Congress for repeatedly misleading his constituents and the American public.
“This is how it is done. Schiff is a complete disgrace to Congress and has no place in this great institution. I look forward to voting to expel him without a second of hesitation,” she tweeted in support of fellow GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, who introduced a measure to expel him on Wednesday.

“Adam Schiff lied to the American people,” the Florida Republican said. “He used his position on House Intelligence to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and abused the trust placed in him as Chairman.
“He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives. The Durham Report makes clear that the Russian Collusion was a lie from day one and Schiff knowingly used his position in an attempt to divide our country,” she noted further.
