House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff made the rounds in the fake news media to salvage the flailing impeachment witch hunt.
Schiff’s desperation in the face of polls showing plunging support for impeachment led him to make a series of outlandish claims.
And Adam Schiff told one lie about the whistleblower that left Trump red with rage.
Schiff made the Sunday show rounds appearing on CNN and NBC knowing he would face softball questions from Democrat Party activists posing as journalists.
Democrats needed a boost after declining TV ratings for the impeachment hearings and sagging poll numbers revealed the American public judged the Democrats a failure in making the case Congress should impeach Donald Trump and remove him from office.
During the hearings, Republicans hammered home the point that Democrats refused to allow alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to testify.
Republicans on the Intelligence Committee argued Ciaramella needed to testify because of his alleged collusion with Adam Schiff’s staff before filing his phony whistleblower complaint as well as his longstanding ties to the Democrat Party and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Schiff initially appeared to be open to having Ciaramella testify, but after the truth about the partisan operative went public, Schiff quickly backtracked.
NBC’s Democrat Party cheerleader and host of “Meet the Press” offered Schiff an unchallenged opportunity to push his talking points about why Democrats no longer needed Ciaramella to testify before the committee.
Schiff offered up two fairly ridiculous justifications as to why the Democrats refused to allow the Republicans to call Ciaramella as a witness.
“We had a deep interest in having the whistleblower testify until two things happened. One, we were able to prove everything in the whistleblower complaint with witnesses that had first-hand information,” Schiff began.
Schiff promoted the false claim that testifying in public would put Ciaramella’s life in danger.
“Second, the president and his allies effectively put the whistleblower’s life in danger. The president said the whistleblower and others should be treated as a traitor or a spy, and we ought to use the penalty we used to use for traitors and spies, and that is the death penalty,” Schiff continued.
“We don’t need the whistleblower’s secondhand evidence anymore. It would only serve to endanger this person and gratify the president’s desire for retribution. That is not a good enough will-be reason to bring in the whistleblower,” Schiff concluded.
Millions of Americans recognized this as utter nonsense.
Schiff wants to hide Ciaramella from testifying because Ciaramella is a partisan operative out to get President Trump.
But Democrats can only protect Ciaramella from testifying out in the open for so long.
Once impeachment moves to a Senate trial, Republicans control the proceedings.
And Donald Trump’s lawyers will be sure to include Ciaramella on the witness list.
