Adam Schiff is a pathological liar who sees Vladimir Putin’s shadow around every corner. It’s always “Russia, Russia, Russia” with him. The 2016 election was stolen by Russian bots and Trump is just a puppet of the Kremlin, despite the fact that after four years there is still NO evidence to suggest this is the case (See the Mueller Report, which found no “collusion” to speak of).
Shifty Schiff is at it again, this time claiming that the recent New York Post report about Hunter Biden’s laptop showing Biden family corruption is “Russian disinformation.” Why would anyone believe one word that comes out of this man’s mouth?
The California Congressman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin. That’s been clear for well over a year now that they’ve been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son.
Clearly, the origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin, and the president is only too happy to have Kremlin help and try to amplify it.”
The only problem with that claim, Shifty, is that it is completely false! According to the intelligence community, Hunter’s leaked emails are completely legit.
The Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe rebuked and debunked Schiff’s claim, saying, “Let me be clear: The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”
Wrong again Shifty. Try again another time.
It didn’t take him long to roll out another false accusation, this time against DNI Ratcliffe himself.
The Washington Post reported, “At a hastily assembled news conference Wednesday, national security officials accused Iran of attempting to interfere in the U.S. election by sending voters fake emails made to look like they had been sent by a far-right, pro-Trump group called the Proud Boys.
Iran had three goals, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said: ‘to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump.’”
Adam Schiff said the following in response: “[The emails] appear to be an effort to suppress the Democratic vote, or an effort to inflame the Democratic vote, or simply to sow chaos.”
He also noted a second example of Iranian election interference mentioned by Ratcliffe, a video posted to social media making claims about fraudulent ballots being cast from overseas, appeared to echo a common “Trump talking point.”
“It’s hard to see how that could be hurtful to the president,” Schiff said. “We don’t know if this is just Ratcliffe’s spin, or whether it is the assessment of the analysts.”
Schiff also claimed that he only trusted FBI Director Christopher Wray on the subject and not DNI Ratcliffe. Well, if that’s the case, then Schiff should think the Iranian fraudulent email story is true…because guess who was sitting behind Ratcliffe at yesterday’s press conference? Christopher Wray.
Adam Schiff is the worst of the DC Swamp creatures. He is a national disgrace and gives public service a bad name. For the good of the country, it would be best if he just went away. However, he loves power too much to voluntarily leave.
