California Democrat Adam Schiff has made some wild claims about Russia but this one takes the cake. In a recent press appearance, he claimed that Russia loves the Second Amendment because they love to see Americans killing each other.
Breitbart has the details:
Adam Schiff: Russians Promoted 2nd Amendment so Americans Would ‘Kill Each Other’
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) suggests Russians promoted the Second Amendment during the 2016 presidential election in the hope that more Americans would kill each other.
He made the observation during a speech at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Media Research Center reports that Schiff claimed that Russians took to social media during the presidential campaign in order to divide America and cause one demographic of Americans to oppose another. He said Russia pushed “content designed to pit us against each other, to exploit our divisions.”
He suggested that this included Russians parroting Black Lives Matter and promoting the Second Amendment.
Here’s the exact quote via Legal Insurrection:
“Fascinatingly, they [the Russians] also trumpeted the second amendment. Apparently, the Russians are very big fans of our second amendment. They don’t particularly want a second amendment of their own, but they’re really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were nothing but killing each other every day and sadly we are.
