California Congressman Adam Schiff inserted himself into the heart of the Russian collusion hoax.
Now Schiff may pay a steep political price.
Adam Schiff learned some devastating news about a painful career change.
Congressman Schiff’s term as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee will come to an end if Republicans retake control of Congress in November.
But Schiff’s time as a member of the Intelligence Committee will also end if Republicans win the majority.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart that Republicans would vote to strip Schiff of his membership on the committee due to the fact that Schiff was one of the chief proponents of the Big Lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
“You look at Adam Schiff—he should not be serving on Intel when he has openly, knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American public in the process and doesn’t have any ill will [and] says he wants to continue to do it,” McCarthy stated.
During Donald Trump’s first three years in office Schiff was a regular presence on CNN and MSNBC spewing lies about possessing evidence that Donald Trump was in league with the Russian government.
McCarthy added that Schiff deserves to lose his seat on the committee due to the fact that Schiff spent his time chasing wild conspiracy theories and ignored real issues.
“We’re going to reshape—think about what happened in Afghanistan. Why did Afghanistan collapse so fast? Was the Intel Committee under Adam Schiff focused on impeachment and not on the safety of America? Why are people coming across the border that are on a terrorist watch list? What are they doing about it? Their own members on that committee say it’s not happening when it’s true. We need to have an Intel Committee that looks at what’s happening around the world and keeps America safe. It should do exactly what it was created [to do]—overseeing of our agencies and others. We’re going to hold people to a higher standard in the process if they want to be on the Intel Committee and the training to be a part of it. Take the politics out of it,” McCarthy told Breitbart.
Schiff spokeswoman Lauren French responded by – of course – attacking Donald Trump.
“It is always difficult to take Kevin McCarthy seriously. Nevertheless, allowing McCarthy to get anywhere near the Speaker’s gavel would be catastrophic — not just because of his propensity for falsehoods and smears, but because he will exist solely to do Donald Trump’s bidding — even potentially overturning the 2024 results,” French’s statement read.
Adam Schiff was one of the leading purveyors of the misinformation that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians in 2016.
Now it looks like Schiff could pay a big price for spreading those falsehoods.
