Adam Schiff told one jaw-dropping lie about impeachment that no one could believe
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is trying to save his impeachment witch hunt from flying off the rails.
Schiff raced to friendly TV networks to try and reset the public narrative.
And Adam Schiff told one jaw-dropping lie about impeachment that no one could believe.
Adam Schiff appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for a friendly interview about the impeachment witch hunt.
Host Chuck Todd asked Schiff about his previous support for having alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella testify in public.
Schiff claimed it was no longer necessary and listed two outrageous lies about why Democrats no longer wanted Ciaramella to tell his story under oath.
On Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said House Democrats wanted the so-called whistleblower to testify until President Donald Trump’s comments.
Schiff said, “We had a deep interest in having the whistleblower testify until two things happened. One, we were able to prove everything in the whistleblower complaint with witnesses that had first-hand information.”
He continued, “Second, the president and his allies effectively put the whistleblower’s life in danger. The president said the whistleblower and others should be treated as a traitor or a spy, and we ought to use the penally we used to use for traitors and spies, and that is the death penalty.”
He added, “We don’t need the whistleblower’s secondhand evidence anymore. It would only serve to endanger this person and gratify the president’s desire for retribution. That is not a good enough will-be reason to bring in the whistleblower.”
Democrats don’t want Ciaramella to testify because of his history as a Democrat and connections to Joe Biden would reveal his complaint was nothing more than a partisan attack on a Republican President.
But Schiff and the Democrats can only keep Ciaramella hidden away for a brief period of time.
If the Senate stages an impeachment trial, Republicans will run the show and Ciaramella will most certainly be called to testify.
