As hard as it is to believe (and it’s REALLY, REALLY hard to believe) there is currently a hashtag trending on Twitter called #AdamSchiffROCKS and it appears as if the hashtag is occasionally being tweeted by REAL people and not just the bots who normally appear in his (Schiff’s) timeline talking about how brilliant the patently dishonest Schiff is.
For those who might wish to contend the last statement, what else would you call someone who actually paraphrases evidence? If this impeachment travesty were a normal court procedure Schiff’s actions would be akin to a prosecutor using a note from your wife in the following manner:
Actual transcript of note from wife: “Don’t forget to stop at the store and pick up some eggs”
Schiff performing a dramatic interpretation of the note to a Jury “Let’s get some eggs and then murder our next door neighbor with an axe”
Were the impeachment proceedings not so serious a matter then Schiff’s clumsy machinations would be laughable. However, given the fact that he is involved in attempting to impeach a President for the unheard of crime of NOT being Hillary Clinton, then they become far more sinister and malicious than comical.
Early on in the Impeachment show, errr proceedings, Schiff demonstrated a total disregard for the truth, acting rather as a conduit for press leaks and disinformation.
In a recent article in the “Washington Examiner ” aptly entitled “Adam Schiff’s lies only grown more brazen as the impeachment charade continues” Jenna Ellis points out:
Rep. Adam Schiff revealed that he’s unfit to lead legitimate impeachment proceedings in the very first moments of the first public hearing his committee conducted. His undisguised personal animus against President Trump and partisan disdain for his Republican colleagues make it clear that he’s incapable of conducting an investigation aimed at discovering the truth.
In fact Schiff has consistently demonstrated that he is without a doubt the worst example of the legal profession since Lionel Hutz, and certainly the most dishonest.
While it would be next to impossible to outline every brazen lie delivered to the American people by Adam Schiff, a brief review of some of the most egregious fables perpetuated by the Congressman from California should quash any and all attempts by the left to elevate him to a legal legend.
Ellis’ article also touched upon the following
Despite being aghast at what he claims is Trump’s attempts to dig up dirt on his political opponents that is exactly what Schiff is guilty of:
Schiff has spent the past three years scrounging for dirt that he could use against Trump. He was so desperate for opposition research that he even fell for a prank by a Ukrainian who offered him nude photographs of the president, making a mockery of the House Intelligence Committee in the process.
During the lengthy (make that VERY lengthy) Mueller investigations (which Liberals used to treat Donald Trump as their personal pinata) Schiff demonstrated his willingness to create facts from whole cloth as it were. Ellis also points out that
Schiff has a history of distorting facts to fit his desired narrative. He spent years repeatedly telling reporters that there was “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Russian government. Then the Mueller Report exposed those assurances as mere partisan bluster.
Ellis (who is also a Constitutional Law Attorney) also remarked that
Schiff’s perfidy only grew more brazen after he became the de facto leader of the impeachment push. After vehemently insisting that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower,” for instance, Schiff was forced to acknowledge that his staff had, in fact, coordinated with the so-called whistleblower before the complaint that led to the current impeachment farce.
“The Hill” also found fault with Schiff’s willingness to depart from anything remotely resembling the truth in his political discourse. Making reference to “The Washington Post” (yes that Washington Post) and their ‘fact checking” Joe Concha reported that:
- Trump said Schiff “actually took words and made it up.” That’s correct. Schiff didn’t give Trump’s exact words — a verbatim transcript isn’t available. Nor does Schiff give the exact words in a White House-released memo of the call, which was based on notes and recollections of staff.
- Schiff said in his opening statement, and in TV interviews, that Trump had asked Zelensky to “make up” or “manufacture” dirt on Trump’s potential 2020 opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden. That’s not accurate. Trump asked Zelensky to investigate, not provide false information.
- The president said in a tweet that Schiff’s comments “bore NO relationship to what I said on the call.” That’s incorrect. There are some parts of the chairman’s comments that are similar to the memo of the phone call.
- Trump tweeted on Sept. 29 that Schiff should be “questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason.” But “treason,” defined by the Constitution, is giving “aid and comfort” to “enemies” of the United States, or “levying war” against the U.S. It does not apply to political speech.
