Adam Schiff spent years using his power to lie about Donald Trump and other conservatives.
As chairman of one of the most powerful committees in Congress, Schiff worked at the heart of the Deep State.
And now, he just got fired for it.
After years at the helm of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff is finding that his practice of lying about Donald Trump and other conservatives has finally caught up with him.
Ever since Donald Trump emerged on the political scene in 2015, Schiff has been one of his biggest critics in Congress.
And after Trump’s stunning victory in 2016, Schiff used his status as a member of the House Intelligence Committee to spread the bogus lie that Russia had colluded with the Trump campaign in 2016 to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.
He then doubled down on this lie throughout 2017 and 2018, and once Democrats took power in Congress, Schiff used his newfound position as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to run even more bogus “investigations” into trying to prove that Trump had done Moscow’s bidding.
None of it was true, but that didn’t stop Schiff from perpetuating one of the greatest political hit jobs in American history.
And now, after over five years of lying to the American public about Donald Trump, Schiff is finally getting a taste of justice as his actions came back to haunt him in a major way.
That’s because one of the first acts of the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives will be to remove Adam Schiff from the Intelligence Committee entirely.
Traditionally, a former chairman will become the committee’s ranking member once his or her party ends up in the minority in Congress.
This is usually done out of respect for the member of Congress’s seniority, and as an overture to the minority party which had previously placed that member in a position of authority.
But Schiff’s actions for the past several years have ensured that he will not be getting that sort of treatment from House Republicans, who announced that they intend to fire him from the Intelligence Committee altogether as punishment for his actions in preparing one of the greatest lies of the decade.
“Adam Schiff will no longer be on the Intel Committee when I become speaker. I promised that more than two years ago,” said Congressman Kevin McCarthy just a few weeks ago.
Now that he’s speaker, his office has already begun to lay out committee assignments which include Schiff’s removal from his powerful seat in Congress.
“Should those people [like Schiff] keep their clearances? Should those people still be allowed to have information? If they’re going to be political individuals, then, no, they should not. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of what we need to investigate going forward,” McCarthy added.
McCarthy’s decision to remove Schiff from the Intelligence Committee was one of many concessions he agreed to with members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus in exchange for their support in making him the next speaker.
And now that the election for speaker is over, Schiff is expected to be removed in a matter of days.
