Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hasn’t been shy about lying at any point in his career, but things escalated since President Trump won the election. If you recall, Schiff is the Democrat who spent years telling the world that he had absolute proof that Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
The entire world is still waiting for that proof.
Not to be outdone by his past self, Schiff is ramping up his Trump-Russia rhetoric once again. He has taken his craft of deception to greater heights, and now we know that multiple pieces of impeachment “evidence” was fabricated or falsified by Congressman Schiff.
He didn’t just groom the whistleblower and craft the complaint. He’s been feeding lies throughout the process, and the one we’re about to discuss is one of the biggest.
Schiff’s Big Lie
This is cleverer than Schiff’s past lies, and it’s absolutely huge. He used redacted emails to show that Lev Parnas (the latest ‘hero’ of the Democrats) was in communication with Trump investigator Rudy Giuliani. That much is actually true, but Schiff pushed much further.
In the emails, there’s an exchange where Parnas confirms with Giuliani that he has successfully contacted “Mr. Z.” The implication is that Mr. Z is the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff has told everyone and their mother that this email chain serves as proof that the Trump team was setting up back channels to pressure Zelensky into investigating Biden.
Keep in mind that Biden and investigations don’t show up in these emails. These are simply the assumptions Schiff and the left is willing and ready to make.
It turns out that the assumptions are actually the least of the problems in this scenario. Politico (not exactly known for favoring the right) just released the emails to the public. They show that the conversation continues far past what Schiff allowed to be seen during the impeachment hearings.
In that continued conversation, we can clearly see that “Mr. Z” is not the Ukrainian president. Instead, the nickname is referring to Mykola Zlochevsky.
Who is he? He’s the founder of Burisma Holdings. That’s right. Schiff’s smoking gun actually proved that the Trump team was looking into potential malfeasance involving Burisma Holdings.
Instead of incriminating President Trump, it vindicates him.
Here’s the ultimate dirty secret in this debacle: Schiff had the whole email exchange the entire time.
We need to make some distinctions. Releasing the partial email like Schiff did is dirty. It’s a deliberate misrepresentation of information to allow everyone involved to assume “Mr. Z” was Zelensky.
What’s substantially worse is that Schiff went on record to verify this belief. Allowing people to make the wrong assumption is bad. Directly confirming the wrong assumption is a malicious act.
Adam Schiff outright fabricated evidence that was used in the impeachment inquiry. Now, he’s smart enough that he didn’t submit the false evidence under threat of perjury. Instead, he kept it in Democratic back channels and allowed select information to be leaked. He even stated in interviews that Mr. Z was referring to Zelensky — while clearly knowing otherwise.
Even if these lies weren’t clear violations of criminal law, they are part of a consistent effort to deceive Americans. More importantly, Schiff’s lies were used to impeach a sitting president. They aren’t run-of-the-mill political nonsense; they are part of an organized coup.
