One of the co-sponsors of a resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) also received campaign donations from one of Rudy Giuliani’s Ukraine associates who was recently arrested.

Lancaster Online reported earlier this month that Igor Fruman donated the approximately $2,500 to Rep. Lloyd Smucker (R-PA).

Fruman was later arrested for funneling foreign money into U.S. campaigns.

On Monday, Republicans pushed for a vote on the censure of Schiff. The resolution is being cosponsored by Smucker. Schiff is leading the investigation into President Donald Trump’s admitted attempts to get Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.

Republicans allege that Schiff “misled the American people” by reading a satirized version of Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president.

Smucker is on record saying that he will return Fruman’s campaign donations, which were made under an alias.

Grabbing onto any straw he can, Donald Trump launched a multi-tweet attack on Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and former FBI Director James Comey, while insisting that everything he has done has been on the up-and-up -- and snapped at former President Barack Obama while he was at it.

According to the president, "As bad as the I.G. Report is for the FBI and others, and it is really bad, remember that I.G. Horowitz was appointed by Obama. There was tremendous bias and guilt exposed, so obvious, but Horowitz couldn’t get himself to say it. Big credibility loss. Obama knew everything!"

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" the founders of Fusion GPS,  which was behind the Steele report which led to an investigation into Donald Trump's relationship with Russia, slapped down claims made by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) made during the House Judiciary Committee hearings this past week.

Host Joy Reid began by sharing a clip of the Ohio Republican's rant during the Trump impeachment hearings, where he claimed, "The guy who write the dossier was, quote, 'desperate to stop Trump.'
