Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is at it again.
The Daily Wire reports that Schiff, over the weekend, claimed to have “evidence” of former President Donald Trump’s involvement in the events of Jan. 6, 2021 – only he isn’t revealing what it is.
Schiff claimed to have this evidence during an appearance Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Dana Bash.
There, Schiff discussed the ongoing hearings that the Jan. 6 House committee, which he is a part of, is putting on.
“We’ll show evidence . . .”
At one point, Bash said:
Your hearing will include evidence about Trump electors in battleground states who submitted fake Electoral College ballots, even though Trump lost these states we’re talking about. We have already heard campaign officials, Trump campaign officials were involved in that. Do you have evidence that the former president himself was involved?
Schiff’s unambiguous answer was “yes.”
We’ll show evidence of the president’s involvement in this scheme. We’ll also, again, show evidence about what his own lawyers came to think about this scheme. And, we’ll show courageous state officials who stood up and said they wouldn’t go along with this plan to either call legislatures back into session or decertify the results for Joe Biden.
The thing is that we have been down this road before: remember when Schiff claimed to have evidence of Trump-Russia collusion – only he didn’t have any? It is likely for this reason that Bash pressed Schiff on Sunday about whether he really does have evidence of Trump’s involvement in Jan. 6.
“Just to be clear, you said you have evidence that the then-president was involved in putting a fake slate of electors out there,” Bash said. “Do you have evidence that he directed it?”
You know, I don’t want to get ahead of our hearing. We’ll show during a hearing what the president’s role was in trying to get states to name alternate slates of electors, how that scheme depended initially on hopes that the legislatures would reconvene and bless it and he pressed forward with it anyway.
Bash then interrupted to ask, “Will we see he directed it?” To which, Schiff said, “I don’t want to get ahead of the role.”
The guy is incorrigible.
