‘The View’ Corners Schiff Over His Debunked Conspiracy Theories

United States Senate / Public domain

You read that right. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was absolutely clobbered on The View by guest host Morgan Ortangus for his lies and conspiracy theories he cooked up to attempt to discredit President Trump with Steele dossier talk.

Conservative Brief reports a transcript of the exchange between the two after the main source of the dossier was indicted by Special Counsel John Durham for lying:

ORTAGUS: “So I want to ask you about something that’s in the news a lot right now. You’ve been really prolific over the past two years being the head of the Intel Committee, and you defended and promoted, you even read into the congressional record of the Steele dossier. We know last week the main source of the dossier was indicted by the FBI for lying about most of the key claims in that dossier. Do you have any reflections on your role in promoting this to the American people?”

SCHIFF: “Well, first of all, whoever lied to the FBI or lied to Christopher Steele should be prosecuted, and they are. And unlike in the Trump administration, if they’re convicted, they should go to jail, not be pardoned. So, Donald Trump pardoned Roger Stone for lying. He pardoned Michael Flynn for lying. If people lied to the FBI, they should go to jail. But at the beginning of the Russian investigation, I said that any allegations should be investigated. We couldn’t have known for example, people were lying to Christopher Steele. So it was proper to investigate them. And let’s not forget what we learned in that investigation. We learned that the Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort was giving internal polling data, campaign polling data to Russian intelligence while Russian intelligence was helping the Trump campaign.”

ORTAGUS: “— spread disinformation yourself for years by promoting this. I think that’s what Republicans and what people who entrusted you as the Intel Committee chair are so confused about your culpability in all of this.”

SCHIFF: “Well, I — I completely disagree with the premise. It’s one thing to say allegations should be investigated and they were, it’s another to say that we should have foreseen in advance that some people were lying to Christopher Steele, which is impossible, of course, to do. But, let’s not use that as a smoke screen to somehow shield Donald Trump’s culpability for inviting Russia to help him in the election, which they did, for trying to force Ukraine into helping him in the next election, which he did, into inciting an insurrection, which he did. None of that is undercut. None of that serious misconduct is in any way diminished by the fact that people lied to Christopher Steele.”

ORTAGUS: “No. I think just your credibility is.”

Adam Schiff needs to be prosecuted for lying. He should be tried for treason and hung.
At the very least he should be impeached and disgraced.

So he may have not lied to the FBI, but he went on CNN daily and lied to the American people. He knew none of it was true, but he didn’t care as long as he could tarnish Trump.
He is still lying every time he speaks on the so called J6 committee. He is a corrupt liar and has no trouble rationalizing it to himself. He is shameful.

There needs to be Nuremberg type trials when Republicans take over at midterms to include all involved holding them accountable to the highest level and to the greatest prosecution.

Good for Ortega for her questions. I praise her for being so courageous due to the fact she’s sitting at the table with the leftie liberal Democrats that truly hate anyone that goes against them.

Keep on doing what you are doing. Stay true to your beloved country and your fight for your country is not overlooked. I see what you did. My hats off to you.

As I recall this happened over a year ago. Ortagus was brilliant for putting him on the spot, but why bring it up now. What is the purpose. Schiff is evil slime, but I am confused why old news is being brought up as if it were new.

She’s bringing it up now because it is still happening, just different players are being used.
WHICH Democrat EVER has said ‘we must wait for the facts to come out before we jump to judgement’ regarding Trump?

Of course, Schitt “disagreed” with the premise! Because he is an LIAR every day of his life. Where is the “conclusive evidence” he crowed about on the fake media and floor of the house?
