Kevin McCarthy just ripped Adam Schiff to his crooked core and flat out called him a liar. Wow, this is an escalation.
McCarthy held a press conference and went off on Adam and the hapless Democrats and said this wasn’t the first time Schiff was lying either.
Remember, no matter what you think of Trump, Schiff and the Democrats have been leaking a false narrative on Trump since day 1.
They are literally the political party who called wolf and America will not fall for it again.
From The Daily Caller:
“I think Adam Schiff has lied numerous times. I do not think Adam Schiff is fit to be in this position of running the Intel committee,” McCarthy told reporters at a weekly press briefing.
McCarthy accused Schiff — whom he referred to repeatedly as “Adam Shift” — of lying throughout the Trump-Russia investigation, as well as during the impeachment inquiry.
“You just asserted, and several Republicans said this yesterday at the hearing, Adam Schiff either personally met with the whistleblower or knows the identity of the whistleblower, which he continues to deny,” a reporter asked. “Can you say it plainly — do you think he’s lying?”
“Yes,” said McCarthy. “And, I don’t think it’s the first time he’s lied to us, either.”
Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, emphatically denied during the first impeachment hearing Wednesday that he knew the identity of the whistleblower, or that he had personally met with the individual.
“I do not know the identity of the whistleblower, and I’m determined to make sure that identity is protected,” Schiff said in an exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan.
REPORTER: “You just asserted…Adam Schiff either personally met with the whistleblower or knows the identity of the whistleblower, which he continues to deny…do you think he’s lying?”
