Adam Schiff has had a pattern of mischaracterizing facts to fit his narrative and it seems to have happened again.

According to Town Hall:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to have “mischaracterized” a piece of evidence used in the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, Politico reports.

The problematic evidence stems from a letter the House Intelligence chairman sent to House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler (D-NY) last week.

 

“In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas ‘continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,’ citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: ‘trying to get us mr Z.’ The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted,” Politico's Melanie Zanona writes. “But an unredacted version of the exchange shows that several days later, Parnas sent Giuliani a word document that appears to show notes from an interview with Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma, followed by a text message to Giuliani that states: ‘mr Z answers my brother.’ That suggests Parnas was referring to Zlochevsky not Zelensky.”

A Democratic official “didn’t dispute the suggestion,” according to Politico, but that source said the single letter "z" was most commonly used as a reference to Zelensky. A GOP aide interviewed for the story, meanwhile, called the assumption Schiff made “sloppy oversight work at best.”

  Schiff has regularly been called out for this type of behavior but appears to has never faced any consequences from it.
