Fact-Checkers at WaPo slam Adam Schiff, give him ‘4 Pinnochios’ for Ukraine nonsense

Adam Schiff will be under increased scrutiny again this week.

The story behind the Democrat’s latest impeachment escalation is shifting rapidly, as ever more information bursts forth from a leaky swamp known as Capitol Hill.

The President has never been under more political pressure than he is at this very moment, and it’s unlikely to subside any time soon.  Trump is weathering the storm that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called a “formal impeachment inquiry” – a characterization so vague that it forced the President to dare Pelosi to hold a vote on impeachment, dangling his cooperation with their investigation in the balance.

One of the key figures for the “resistance” this week has been House Intel Chair Adam Schiff, whose fictional portrayal of a hypothetical conversation between US President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart has placed him under threat of censure.

Schiff garnered another poor distinction this week thanks to the Washington Post.

The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” column hit House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) with four Pinocchios Friday for falsely claiming that his panel had “not spoken directly” with the partisan CIA officer behind a so-called “whistleblower” complaint about President Donald Trump.

According to the New York Times, the officer, who is reportedly a registered Democrat, initially directed a colleague to discuss his claims with the CIA’s top lawyer. Shortly after, the Deep Stater contacted a House Intelligence Committee aide to discuss the Trump-Zelensky call in which the world leaders discussed U.S. military aid and the business dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and 2020 White House candidate Joe Biden. The panel staffer shared several of the officer’s claims, which are based on secondhand information, with Schiff, but did not reveal his identity.

However, appearing September 17th on MSNBC, Schiff told contributor Sam Stein, “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower.”

The admonishment from the Washington Post will only serve to ratchet up pressure on Schiff and his fellow democrats, as the President continues to call for the House Intel Chairman to resign.
