Adam Schiff Had Fun Mugging for the Cameras at Impeachment Hearing

More than one person called out the House Intelligence Committee chair for some of his actions during the Wednesday event

Brad Parscale, campaign manager for President Donald Trump, posted a video of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) at this week’s impeachment hearing pompously posing for the cameras.

One could hardly expect anything different from a man who thinks he’s the impeachment circus ringmaster, in our opinion.

In the video Parscale posted, Schiff is shown surrounded by media anxiously taking his photograph; then it pauses on one particular face that shows the House Intelligence Committee chairman appearing as smug as can be.

“What is Adam Schiff’s favorite part of orchestrating this impeachment sham?” Parscale rhetorically asks his followers.

“Posing for the cameras, of course.”

We’re quite certain “Shifty Schiff,” as Trump calls him, loves mugging for the fawning media.

He might also like lying, it seems to us — as he does it with such ease and regularity, from fabricating conversations to concocting hoaxes out of mundane events.

Want the latest example?

Schiff, speaking to his allies in the media, actually claimed he was “reserving judgment” on impeachment.

That’s right: The man who has been spearheading the impeachment drive since day one of President Trump’s tenure in the White House now says he’s “reserving judgment.”

Also, during the hearing, Schiff told attendees that the Ukraine hoax would show President Trump had “sought to condition, coerce, extort, or bribe an ally into conducting investigations to aid his re-election campaign.”

It didn’t, of course — and the transcript of the July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president, and the Ukraine president’s own words, have debunked that line of attack.

But Schiff followed that with: “If this is not impeachable conduct, what is?”

The same guy would later tell the media that he was “reserving judgment.”

During his opening statements, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) chastised House Democrats and Schiff in particular for lacking the credibility to cast aspersions on their political adversaries.

“We should … forget about countless other deceptions, large and small that make them [the Democrats] the last people on Earth with the credibility to hurl more preposterous accusations at their political opponents?” Nunes said.

Here we have Schiff proving Nunes right once again.
