For a multitude of very good reasons, Donald Trump is terrified of Congressman Adam Schiff, and therefore Trump’s group of complicit treason apologists in Congress are also losing their collective minds over what the new Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has the power to do. Earlier this month, John Solomon, a pro-Trump conspiracy theorist who writes for The Hill, confirmed his concerns about Schiff, stating he “has proven to be his party’s most effective antagonist toward President Trump. And now, with the new powers of being chairman, he is drawing both new weapons and new scrutiny.”
On Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy regurgitated some of Solomon’s propaganda while attacking Schiff. When asked by host Maria Bartiromo about Schiff’s investigation into Trump-Russia treason, McCarthy did not attempt to hide his unhinged disdain for the rule of law, saying “We now find that Adam Schiff met with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the individual that created that fake dossier, in Aspen, which never has been known to us.”
McCarthy’s inveterate lies did not end there. He went on to say that Schiff “should recuse himself based upon meeting with an individual that’s under, that we’re looking at from creating the Fusion GPS, I mean from Fusion GPS and not even telling us.” So let me get this straight. Wanting to gain further information from someone who has repeatedly provided credible information is somehow wrong, but meeting with untold Russians is supposedly “opposition research?”
Because Jeff Sessions, who actively participated in subverting American democracy, and then repeatedly lied to Congress, was forced to recuse himself from any Trump-Russia matters, McCarthy believes Schiff should also have to recuse himself, and possibly even step down as Chairman, because, why exactly? Apparently, it is because Schiff is getting closer every day to proving Trump and his cronies sold out America to benefit themselves and foreign adversaries. They are clearly terrified of Schiff, and for very good reasons!
