California Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat, was positively apoplectic in January when House Speaker Kevin McCarthy denied him membership on the House Intelligence Committee he had chaired for the past four years.
In an interview with CNN at the time, congenital liar Schiff “tripled down” on the Russian collusion hoax. He wanted to “set the record straight.” He said, “If you read the Mueller report, he makes clear … that he states no conclusion on whether Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians.”
Separately, Schiff tweeted, “Kevin McCarthy just kicked me and @RepSwalwell off the Intelligence Committee. This is petty, political payback for investigating Donald Trump. If he thinks this will stop me, he will soon find out just how wrong he is. I will always defend our democracy.”
For over three years, Schiff had been the face of the Democrats’ failed attempt to connect former President Donald Trump to the Russians. He arrived in Washington, D.C. in 2001 and remained obscure until he recognized his moment had come at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
He quickly became a cheerleader for the Democrats’ narrative that the Russians had hacked the DNC’s computer to help Trump win the election. Happy to talk to any reporter, he soon became the “go-to guy” for anything related to the FBI’s bogus investigation into the Trump campaign and the Mueller probe which followed. Schiff was finally receiving the attention he’d craved for so long and he clearly relished it. He never missed an opportunity to assure the American people that evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia was hiding in plain sight. He’d found his niche.
Crestfallen after the Mueller investigation came up empty-handed in the spring of 2019, he seized upon Trump’s July 2019 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for his next act. Schiff’s deceitful, manipulative actions in using that call to impeach Trump could fill a book.
Although one could argue that it came way too late, the Durham report on the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was a damning indictment of the stunning abuses of power by the FBI and high-ranking government officials. Durham concluded there had been no predicate for the government’s investigation of the Trump campaign and that it had been politically motivated.
Speaking to reporters about the report, McCarthy questioned Schiff’s fitness for office. He said, “If you’re concerned about threats to our democracy, you are right to be angry over the coordinated campaign to lie to the American public for years about Russia collusion—peddled at the highest levels of government, from Adam Schiff to the DOJ—to try to influence an election.
He noted that the report “really raises the question about Adam Schiff. Remember when he told the American people he had proof? Remember when he told them he didn’t know the whistleblower? And what he put America through and openly lied to us?”
“It raises a lot of questions about his character, his standing inside of Congress, or whether he should even be in Congress,” he added.
On Tuesday, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) submitted a resolution to expel Schiff from the House of Representatives. She posted the document on Twitter with the following message: “Knowingly using your position on House Intel to push a lie that ripped apart our country, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and authorized spying on a US President and then proceeding to double down on the lie within days of the Durham report coming out makes you unfit for office. Ethics should investigate.”
The narrative that put this repellent man on the map in Washington, that Trump colluded with the Kremlin to win the 2016 election, has now been thoroughly discredited.
Still, that hasn’t stopped him from trying to fail upward. He plans to run for the Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who is retiring. This corrupt man, who has so flagrantly abused his position of power, deserves to be expelled from Congress, and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the U.S. Senate.
But the wonder of it all is that Schiff still doesn’t seem to grasp the fact that the jig is up.
