Head House impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been caught lying again.
Breitbart fact-checkers found that Adam Schiff mischaracterized White House National Security Council (NSC) official Tim Morrison’s testimony in regard to President Donald Trump’s July 2019 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Adam Schiff is becoming well known for his penchant for twisting the narrative to suit his goals, and this latest lie is yet another example of this pattern.
Making up facts as he goes
According to Breitbart, Schiff claimed during the Senate trial on Thursday that several officials listening to Trump’s July phone call “came forward in real-time to report the president’s conduct.”
The call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky is what spawned the entire impeachment inquiry. The accusations made about the call have since been debunked, but that hasn’t stopped Schiff.
Schiff pointed to former NSC official Tim Morrison specifically as someone who “came forward” with a complaint about the phone call.
The problem is that Morrison has already testified that he saw nothing wrong with the call between Trump and Zelensky. Morrison also told this directly to Schiff in a closed-door hearing, so Schiff knew he was lying to Congress by about Morrison’s opinion of the call.
Conservative commentator Joel Pollack, writing for Breitbart, pointed out: “Schiff lied to the Senate about what Morrison testified about his own impressions of the call, playing a selectively-edited video in which Democrats’ counsel used his own words, not Morrison’s, to describe his impression of the call.”
Schiff’s latest lie
The latest lie by Schiff highlights an inconvenient truth that has plagued Democrats hell-bent on impeaching President Trump.
Democrats have no real witnesses corroborating their allegations. No official who heard the call has said Trump did anything wrong. In fact, the so-called Ukraine “whistleblower” himself heard about the call through another person working at the White House, the Washington Examiner noted.
The entire controversy was generated by politically motivated officials with second-hand knowledge.
Democrats in the House were all too ready to accept any ammunition they were given against Trump. Indeed, Dems have been wanting to impeach Trump since Day 1, but their antics in the Senate trial aren’t gaining them traction in the Senate or any favor with the American people.
