Hell Freezes Over: CNN Blows Up Schiff Russia Recent Claim About President Trump

On Sunday House Intelligence Chairmen Rep. Adam Schiff went on a tangent when he claimed that Russia is trying to get President Donald Trump to re-elect. However, there is just one wrinkle about Schiff’s claim, CNN already disproved it.

It appears that if you are an enemy to the Democrat party Russia is helping you and since the DNC doesn’t want Bernie anywhere near the nomination, Schiff leaked that the Russians are helping Bernie.

When President Trump was asked about it over the weekend the President said, “I read where Russia is helping Bernie Sanders. Nobody said it to me at all. Nobody briefed that to me at all,” Trump said, suggesting that “Schiff and his group leaked it to the papers. They ought to investigate Schiff for leaking that information.”

On Sunday, Schiff shot back and said, “Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again.”

The problem with Schiff’s claim is that two days before, Friday, CNN’s Jake Tapper blew the whole narrative out of the water in a very long tweet thread. I’m not sure what got into Jake that he accidentally engaged in actual journalism and in doing so countered Schiff’s weekend talking points.

What Tapper explains is that the now-fired DNI official was inaccurate in his assessment and was not honest before Congress. Tapper explains:

Schiff has been caught flat out lying when he runs around claiming the President fired a DNI official over telling Congress Russia is helping President Trump. He was fired because “deep state” CIA officials didn’t brief President Trump, he had to hear the information from a member of Congress, and he mischaracterized the intelligence.

Apparently President Trump is not playing around a deep stater embedded in Washington told VOX journalist, Alex Ward:

Senator Bernie Sanders was confused as to why this information came out, he’s known for a month.

It’s time for Rep. Adam Schiff to be investigated, he’s using the House Intelligence Committee as a propaganda tool for the DNC.
