BREAKING: Schiff Gets 4 Pinocchios from Wapo for Misleading Public on Whistleblower Timeline

Wapo fact checker Glenn Kessler gave House Intel Chair Adam Schiff 4 Pinocchios for his claims that he had not spoken directly to the whistleblower.

In addition, Kessler says Schiff intentionally tried to mislead the American public during an appearance on MSNBC.

GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy has announced he has signed a resolution to censure House Intel Chair Adam Schiff.

McCarthy made the announcement via a tweet.

Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years. Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call.

Enough is enough. I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.

Thursday, 45 House Republicans joined a resolution to condemn House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff for “acting out” and ad-libbing a conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Rep. Elise Stefanik of NY, one of the signers wrote:

I just signed on to the Resolution to Condemn and Censure Adam Schiff for manufacturing false dialogue between @POTUS and President Zelensky during a House Intelligence Committee hearing. He has made a mockery of our Committee and should step down as Chairman.

DailyCaller reports the Washington Post gave House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff four pinocchios over his claim that neither he nor his staff had spoken to the whistleblower before he filed his complaint regarding a phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”

However, a New York Times report published earlier this week confirmed that the whistleblower had been in contact with an Intelligence Committee aid before the complaint had been officially filed.

“This is flat-out false,” The Post’s Glenn Kessler wrote of Schiff’s claims on MSNBC. “Unlike the quick two-step dance he performed with Anderson Cooper, Schiff simply says the committee had not spoken to the whistleblower. Now we know that’s not true.”

Kessler wrote that Schiff was not simply attempting to dodge a question, but to mislead the American public.

“There’s nothing wrong with dodging a question, as long as you don’t try to mislead,” he wrote. “But Schiff on ‘Morning Joe’ clearly made a statement that was false.”
