The US House of Representatives has voted to punish Democrat Adam Schiff for accusing Donald Trump of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election, the BBC reports.
The Republican-controlled chamber approved the measure along party lines, with 213 Republicans voting in favour and 209 Democrats against it.
Known as a “censure”, the rare step is a formal public reprimand of misconduct that does not warrant an expulsion.
Mr Schiff said he would wear the vote of disapproval as a “badge of honour”.
He sarcastically thanked Republicans ahead of the vote for their “enmity” and said he would “not yield. Not one inch”.
