Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) launched into a devastating public attack earlier this week, exposing House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for his lies during the impeachment saga.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday during a break in the Senate trial, Jordan went down the list of statements Schiff has made that have turned out to be completely false.
The list was extensive and went back to the very beginning of the impeachment inquiry.
Schiff has broken all trust
In Jordan’s breakdown of Schiff’s lies, he said, “This is the guy who said, ‘We have more than circumstantial evidence that there was coordination between Trump and Russia, and Russia influenced the election.’ That turned out to be false.”
The infamous Russia collusion scandal has been shown to be built on a complete hoax, and Schiff was on board with it all the way.
“Adam Schiff said that the Nunes memo was false. [Inspector General] Michael Horowitz told us no it wasn’t; it was exactly right. Adam Schiff said you can trust the FISA court. Michael Horowitz told us last month that no, you can’t; they lied to the FISA court 17 times,” Jordan continued.
To this day Schiff believes that President Trump cheated in the 2016 election and aims to do so again in November. Speaking in front of the Senate, Schiff said that impeachment is crucial as Trump will try and “cheat” again in 2020.
On Wednesday Jordan also tweeted out a catalogue of Schiff’s ongoing dishonesty. “More than circumstantial evidence” of collusion. Nunes memo was false. FISA process was fine. The “Whistleblower” would testify. “We haven’t spoken… with the ‘Whistleblower.” Parodied POTUS‘ call. “Mr. Z” referred to Zelensky, But today we’re supposed to trust him?
Schiff is arguing that President Trump is a threat to our democracy, but as Jordan’s significant pile of evidence shows, Schiff is the real threat to our system of government.
Deliberate lies doing real damage
Schiff’s conduct has done more to destroy Americans’ trust in our institutions then President Trump ever could.
The fact that Schiff has been able to get away with lying as much as he has in his official capacity as a congressman and as a House impeachment prosecutor is a disgrace.
Why should the average citizen trust our system when politicians can do as they please without any accountability? If Democrats succeed in their efforts, it will be the ultimate subversion of democracy.
