For years, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has claimed, falsely, that Donald Trump and Russia “colluded” to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.
There literally is no proof of it.
And he knows it: Witnesses before his committee who have testified under oath have said as much.
But he got press for lying about it so he continued to make the claim and gaslight the country in the process.
Now he’s taken his break from reality a step further.
Schiff is actually accusing Republicans of being bigger liars.
Independent Journal Review notes:
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is slamming his Republican colleagues who want to punish two House Republicans picked for the Jan. 6 select committee.
'It tells you where Kevin McCarthy is and where the Republican Party is,' Schiff said during Monday's CNN 'New Day' interview. 'That is, that they're an anti-truth party.'
He added, 'It just shows how much [the party] has been hollowed out by the former president.'
The GOP is 'an anti-truth party,' Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff says as a growing group of GOP members want McCarthy to punish Kinzinger and Cheney for joining the Jan. 6 committee. 'It just shows how much [the party] has been hollowed out by the former President.' pic.twitter.com/Wfzqk8wiHi

There are a lot of things wrong in American politics today, and this freak show embodies all of them.
We’re not sure what’s worse, the fact that CNN continues to interview this known liar or that the network thought posting the interview was advantageous to its ratings.
Here’s another observation: The Democrat Party is so bankrupt morally and bereft of credible policy ideas its members must continue to obsess with Donald Trump to hide their own failures and keep their voting base engaged.
Which actually speaks to the strength of Donald Trump, not his liability to the GOP.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
