House Intel Chair Adam Schiff done goofed, as they say here in the south.
As part of the left’s latest “formal impeachment inquiry”, Schiff and his cohorts called acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire to testify before Congress, with Maguire obliging them in a testy public hearing some weeks ago.
During the spectacle, Schiff was prone to a bit of grandstanding at times, attempting to hammer home the left’s latest conspiracy theory regarding President Trump’s phone calls with his Ukrainian counterpart.
Schiff, at one point, even went so far as to fabricate a conversation between Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine, to give the impression that the US President was acting like some sort of mafia boss. Of course, a congressional hearing is no place for such fiction, and many on Capitol Hill found themselves incensed at what had occurred.
Now, as a move to censure Schiff for his nonsense gains momentum in the House, the House Intel Chairman could soon find himself in some serious trouble.
One-hundred and seventy-three House Republicans have backed a motion Friday to condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) as Republicans remain poised to force a vote on the bill next week.
Over 170 House Republicans, or 88 percent, have cosponsored House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) H. Res. 604, according to a list obtained by Breitbart News. As of Friday night, only 24 House Republicans have yet to cosponsor the bill. H. Res. 604 would condemn Schiff for reading a fictional phone call between Zelensky and Trump into the record.
Schiff has been in a fickle feud with President Trump for some time, landing himself not one, but two nicknames from the Commander in Chief: “Liddle Adam Schiff” and “Pencil Neck”.
