Adam Schiff can’t stop himself from lying in public

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Democrat House manager Adam Schiff wrapped up the House’s case on Day 4 of the Senate impeachment trial.

Schiff told the Senators, “CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that key senators were warned, ‘Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike. I don’t know if that’s true.”

It wasn’t.

Beginning and ending with lies

It is fitting for Schiff to conclude his arguments for the impeachment and removal of the president of the United States with an untrue statement. He opened the Intelligence Committee impeachment inquiry hearing with a statement that was also not true.

Schiff infamously interpreted with a mobster persona, reminiscent of The Godfather, the transcript of President Trump’s call to Ukraine’s President Zelenskiy, on national television, and left it like that in the congressional record, without reading the actual transcript into the record.

It reads like a classic organized crime shakedown. Shorn of its rambling character and in not so many words, this is the essence of what the president communicates. We’ve been very good to your country, very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand. Lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, not just any people, I am going to put you in touch with the attorney general of the United States, my Attorney General Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him. And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy. You’re going to love him. Trust me. You know what I’m asking. And so I’m only going to say this a few more times. In a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.

This is in sum and character what the president was trying to communicate with the president of Ukraine. It would be funny if it wasn’t such a graphic betrayal of the president’s oath of office. But as it does represent a real betrayal, there’s nothing the president says here that is in America’s interest after all.

Schiff put words in President Trump’s mouth, words, that if true, would get him in a lot of trouble. That was the intent. But President Trump did not say those words, and Adam Schiff is a liar.

Washington Post lie tracker

The Washington Post keeps track of Trump’s exaggerations and calls them lies. Things like, “My tax cut is the biggest tax cut ever,” which they have tracked 181 times. They claim he has lied thousands of times because they track the same exaggeration every time he utters it, and he does repeat himself. Here’s another “lie” the president told.

“Eighty times, Trump has claimed his phone call with the Ukrainian president was “perfect.” Another “lie” the president told 242 times“is that the U.S. economy today is the best in history.” These rhetorical exaggerations are what the Washington Post tracks and calls “lies.” Who is really lying?

Schiff’s lies vs. Trump’s exaggerations

Now, exaggeration about how good the economy is or how big the tax cut is has its problems, but it doesn’t really hurt anyone. Lying about what was said to another head of state in a telephone call has far greater consequences, such as the divisive effort to remove a president from office and the disturbance of the peace of the country that has brought.

Where is the WaPo lie tally for Schiff? I would argue that in comparison, Schiff’s lies are more of an existential threat than Trump’s exaggerations.

Senator Marshal Blackburn on Schiff and the Democrats

Sen. Marsha Blackburn commented on Schiff’s words in his closing statement and said that he should have retracted the statement as it was not true. She also pointed out the other insulting things the House managers said during their opening arguments. The Democrats have called the senators liars, accused them of participating in a cover-up, and called the president a dictator and a monarch.

It seems that Senator Blackburn has seen through Schiff’s lies; let’s hope all the senators have.

You can buy all of them directly from the vendor, or through third party sources if they are intended for your laptop, however only a few laptop can have a covering on the market. Once again, thanks for your guidelines.
