Adam Schiff is a sitting member of Congress who levied war against President Trump—materially aiding our enemies—by baselessly trying to have him removed from office, and to have his voice removed from the public town square, over and over again.
Schiff has abused his position as Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to persecute a political opponent, the President of the United States, and have him “convicted and removed from office.”
Among his claims:
- That President Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 Presidential election. False.
- That President Trump tried to bribe Ukraine into providing political favors in exchange for foreign aid. False.
- That President Trump committed insurrection in connection with the January 6 U.S. Capitol riots. False.
Did Schiff take campaign funds from a “Ukrainian arms dealer” named Igor Pasternak? If he did, should we be concerned?
Why did President Trump call Adam Schiff a traitor?
Because Schiff made up statements about the phone call that did not exist.
“We can’t endorse Trump’s claim that Schiff “lied,” since Schiff introduced his comments at Thursday’s committee hearing by saying he would be outlining “the essence of what the president communicates,” not providing “the exact transcribed version of the call.” And it’s important to note that we do not even have an “exact transcribed version” of the call – the rough transcript released by the White House cautions explicitly that it is ‘not a verbatim transcript.’ Still, Schiff’s remarks did make it easy for viewers to get confused. He did not make clear which words he was taking directly from Trump’s comments in the rough transcript, which words were his own analysis, and which words were meant to be the comedic ‘parody’ he later said he was intending. At some points, Schiff’s words strayed quite far from what the rough transcript showed Trump saying.”https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/27/politics/fact-check-adam-schiff-trumps-ukraine-call/index.html
