For four years, Democrat House “Intelligence” Chair Adam Schiff pushed malicious and ridiculous lies about Donald J. Trump based on a manufactured Russian dossier paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
This morning, Rep. Schiff (D-CA) joined “The View,” which is usually a “safe space” for the Left. But, much to the surprise of conservatives, Schiff was confronted by the badass former State Department Spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus over his role in pushing the lies in the bogus Steele Dossier.
Ortagus faced off with the sniveling lawmaker while her leftist co-hosts sat quietly and watched her dismantle him. “You’ve been really prolific over the past few years being the head of the Intel Committee,” Ortagus said, adding, “And you defended, promoted, you even read into the Congressional Record the Steele Dossier — and 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.”
The View co-host asked Schiff: “Do you have any reflections on your role in promoting this to the American people?”
The arrogant Schiff replied, “Whoever lied to the FBI or lied to Cristopher Steele should be prosecuted. If people lied to the FBI, they should go to jail,” Schiff said, as he ignored his role in pushing the dossier that he knew all along was completely manufactured. Schiff shamelessly tried to shift blame on Trump, General Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort. Ortagus wasn’t having it. She accused Schiff of spreading Russian disinformation with his aggressive push of the contents of the Steele dossier.”That’s what Republicans and what people who trusted you as the Intel Committee chair are so confused about, your culpability in all of this,” Ortagus said. Schiff snapped back, “I completely disagree with your premise,” he said, adding, “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.”
Rep. Schiff tried to deflect again, bringing up another manufactured crime, President Trump’s call with Ukraine President Zelensky—another Democrat impeachment fail. He even accused Ortagus and fellow Republicans of trying to create a “smokescreen to somehow shield Donald Trump’s culpability for inviting Russia to help him in the election, which they did, for trying to coerce Ukraine into helping him in the next election, which he did, into inciting an erection— 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.”
“No, I think just your credibility is,” Ortagus snapped back.
Unfortunately, the cameras never scanned The View hosts’ faces, who were undoubtedly horrified by Ortagus’ humiliating TKO of “Pencil-neck” Schiff.
