VIDEO: McCarthy Accuses Schiff of Orchestrating a “Calculated Coup” Against Trump

Appearing on Fox New’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused Adam Schiff or orchestrating a “calculated coup” against President Trump.

McCarthy told Bartiromo “It is clear now more than ever this is a calculated coup, and it is being orchestrated by Adam Schiff. We are watching him orchestrate a takedown of a president after we just celebrated 30 years of taking down the Berlin Wall.”


After his appearance, McCarthy tweeted:

The American people now know that there are government officials being paid with taxpayer dollars to undermine their choice for president. It was this very feeling of distrust that led to @realDonaldTrump’s election in the first place.

Washington Times reports House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday accused Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of orchestrating a “calculated coup” to take down President Trump as the House prepares to hold the first public hearing of its impeachment inquiry.

“It is clear now more than ever, this is a calculated coup and it is being orchestrated by Adam Schiff,” said Mr. McCarthy on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” “We are watching him orchestrate the takedown of a president after we just celebrated 30 years [since] taking down the Berlin Wall.”

The Republican leader’s broadside at Mr. Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, came after the California Democrat refused to allow Republicans to call Hunter Biden or the anonymous “whistleblower” to testify at the hearings starting Wednesday.

Mr. McCarthy accused Democrats of trying to obfuscate their involvement with the “whistleblower,” who reportedly met with Mr. Schiff and committee staffers before filing the complaint regarding the July 25 phone call between Mr. Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“This has been orchestrated, and if it goes out longer, we will find the lies, we will find out how they calculated the truth, we’ll find more about the whistleblower’s attorney and others,” said Mr. McCarthy.
