While House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) performance during the impeachment trial drew criticism from many, he’s made at least one fan.
In her infinite wisdom, noted leftist Barbra Streisand has proclaimed that she would support a career change for Rep. Schiff… “Adam Schiff is so impressive. His knowledge of the law… his passion… his articulateness. His sincerity! He speaks the truth and would make a great president,” she said.

Streisand is impressed with Schiff and believes he speaks the truth, but she is in for a rude awakening when the real truth is finally made public.
First and foremost, let’s address his knowledge of the law. Schiff insists the infamous Ukraine whistleblower’s identity is protected by law, but it is not.
There is not a single law in existence that prevents his identity from being revealed by a member of Congress or the president.
In terms of speaking the truth, well, there are so many lies to choose from. Let’s look at Schiff’s opening arguments when he held up redacted documents and told everyone that “Mr. Z” in those documents referred to Ukraine President Zelensky.
Schiff saw the unredacted version, which made it very clear the reference was intended for Mykola Zlochevesky, the founder of Burisma, but went ahead and built his case that it was Zelensky.
The other side
Although Streisand is impressed by Schiff’s performance in the impeachment process, not many others are.
Fox News personality Sean Hannity declared this impeachment to be “one of the biggest and single most embarrassing Democratic blunders of all time.”
Much of the blame for the fallout of the botched impeachment can be attributed to Adam Schiff’s routine misrepresentation of the facts in his nearly three-year-long crusade to remove Trump from office.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) blasted Schiff’s performance earlier this week, saying “Adam Schiff was aspiring to write the world’s greatest parody. He was a fiction writer. He was relying on presumptions and assumptions and lies and hearsay.”
