Schiff Distorted ‘Evidence,’ Documents Reveal
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been caught again distorting evidence and lying. It appears that Schiff distorted a text message exchange between two people in the Ukrainian saga according to documents obtained by Politico. The GOP will be sure to hop on this to slam Schiff as he calls for new evidence to be introduced into the Senate impeachment trial.
The issue arose when Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) last week summarizing a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. 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.
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.
The word document contains a series of questions and answers, but doesn’t identify who is doing the asking or answering. Yet the questions center on the hiring practices at Burisma, while the responses include statements such as “we wanted to build Burisma as [an] international company” and “we also thought it would help in Ukraine to have strong international board figures,” which seems to point to Zlochevsky — not the Ukrainian president — as the respondent.
As one GOP aid put it, “But given the selective redactions and contextual clues, it seems as though Chairman Schiff sought to portray an innocuous meeting with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky as an insidious one with the President of Ukraine simply because both of their surnames start with the letter Z.”
So basically Schiff created a redacted version to distort the truth and fabricate evidence to pressure the Senate, spread fake news, and attack the President. This unreacted version proves Schiff is a liar and it’s time that we start putting pressure on our representatives to have the House Ethics Committee investigate Rep. Adam Schiff; this guy needs to go.
This is just as shocking as the recently discovered alarming connection between Senator Warren’s son-in-law and Iran, or the CNN reporter that admitted he lied about “overhearing” a conversation between two Republican Senators.
These liberals are something else.
