BREAKING: Adam Schiff Can’t Stop Lying About Evidence in Impeachment Trial
Adam Schiff is a habitual liar, we are all certain of that. We watched him lie in the House Intelligence Committee hearing, we watched him lie about the phone call transcript, so it should come as no surprise that he’s continuing to lie even in the impeachment trial itself.
During Day 1, Adam Schiff claimed that former associate of Rudy Giuliani, Lev Parnas, assumed that a bit of evidence was referring to President Zelensky, when in reality, he couldn’t have been further off base.
The issue arose when Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) last week summarizing a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas “continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,” citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: “trying to get us mr Z.” The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.
But an unredacted version of the exchange shows that several days later, Parnas sent Giuliani a word document that appears to show notes from an interview with Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma, followed by a text message to Giuliani that states: “mr Z answers my brother.” That suggests Parnas was referring to Zlochevsky not Zelensky.
One senior GOP aide also told Politico that “The most charitable view of the situation is that [Schiff’s] staff committed the equivalent of Congressional malpractice by not looking more than an inch deep to determine the facts before foisting this erroneous information on his colleagues and the American public. But given the selective redactions and contextual clues, it seems as though Chairman Schiff sought to portray an innocuous meeting with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky as an insidious one with the President of Ukraine simply because both of their surnames start with the letter Z.”
Rep. Elise Stefanik who is also on President Trump’s defense team tweeted a response to Schiff’s lies: “Schiff’s sham impeachment is littered with mischaracterizations, falsehoods, & political desperation. The more Schiff speaks to the American people, the more the support for impeachment is obliterated in the court of public opinion.”
