Adam Schiff is not operating in good faith. In fact, it would be fair to say that he is a liar who is playing dirty.
During a recent hearing for the January 6th committee, he doctored texts between Republicans in an obvious effort to paint them in a more negative light.
This was a sleazy move, even for him.
The Federalist reports:
During January 6 Hearing, Schiff Doctored Text Messages Between Mark Meadows And Rep. Jim Jordan
Oops, he did it again. After leaking fake Donald Trump, Jr. emails, fabricating the transcript of a 2019 phone call between former President Donald Trump and Ukraine’s president, and lying about his interactions with the so-called whistleblower behind House Democrats’ first impeachment of Trump, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is now running the same con against a fellow lawmaker.
During a hearing Monday night on the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Adam Schiff claimed to have proof that a member of Congress texted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to instruct former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
Not only did Schiff misrepresent the substance of the text message and its source, he even doctored original text messages, which were obtained and reviewed by The Federalist in their entirety.
“I want to display just a few of the message[s] he received from people in Congress,” Schiff said, referring to Meadows. “The committee is not naming these lawmakers at this time as our investigation is ongoing. If we could cue the first graphic.”…
“This one reads, ‘On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all,’” Schiff continued. “You can see why this is so critical to ask Mr. Meadows about. About a lawmaker suggesting that the former vice president simply throw out votes that he unilaterally deems unconstitutional in order to overturn a presidential election and subvert the will of the American people.”
Schiff changed punctuation and took away entire portions of text to make this message seem nefarious.
He should be removed from the committee, which should then simply be dissolved.
It’s nothing more than a continued effort on the part of Democrats to smear Trump, because they fear he will return in 2024.
