It will be said of House Republicans,— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) October 21, 2019
When they found they lacked the courage to confront the most dangerous and unethical president in American history,
They consoled themselves by attacking those who did.
Schiff has been caught publically as well. The head of the House Intelligence Committee was caught embellishing the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and the Ukraine president. He was proven wrong by the transcript itself.
Yet, as Republicans like Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) will tell you, their failure to censure does not prove Schiff's innocence. His work on the impeachment inquiry against President Trump has been one big, biased, secretive mission, Zeldin claimed on Fox News's "America's Newsroom."
For example, when Schiff had a former senior adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Michael McKinley, in the hot seat, the chairman asked him to talk about how bad things were in Pompeo's State Department. McKinley was offended by the tone, so Schiff had to rephrase the question.
"It's disgusting," Zeldin said, adding that it's been a trend throughout all of the depositions.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) can also attest to Schiff's attempt to shut out Republicans during the process.
"We found out last night that Democrats will now not even allow Republicans to have a copy of the respective transcripts from each of the witnesses we’ve interviewed thus far," Jordan said on Tuesday. "And if in fact – no copies – we can’t make copies - we don’t get a copy."
