Republicans are finally starting to show a little backbone.
Now that Robert Mueller’s report has exonerated Donald Trump, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R) is demanding that fellow California Rep. Adam Schiff (D) resign from his leadership role on the House Intelligence Committee after Schiff spent months peddling the false narrative that Trump would soon be headed to prison.
McCarthy is just one voice calling for Schiff to step down. In addition to him, several other Republican congressmen have joined the call for his resignation.
Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump’s White House advisors, has also stated that she thinks Schiff needs to step down.
These calls are not in vain, either, as Schiff has misled the American people — and he needs to be held accountable for it.
He used his position as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to make Americans think he had access to information that proved there was collusion. Now, after hearing a summary of Mueller’s report from the attorney general, we know that was not true.
Schiff probably did not even have access to all of the information Mueller had in front of him, and Mueller never found any evidence of wrongdoing by Trump.
Our representatives are not supposed to preach fake news, but that is clearly what Schiff did in this case.
Democrats Flock to Schiff’s Defense
But even with there being overwhelming evidence that Schiff lied, Democrats are still sticking by their man.
Virtually every party member has defended Schiff’s actions.
They are cloaking his guilt by saying we need to see everything Mueller wrote in his report ASAP.
But on the other hand, they are also saying they can’t trust Mueller since he didn’t prove what they’ve been hoping he would.
They are talking out of both sides of their mouths right now in an effort to distract from the fact Democrats have been preaching a false narrative for more than two years. Disgusting.
