Jim Jordan Torches Adam Schiff for Doctoring Texts in Hearing - WATCH
'Adam Schiff did what other Democrats do,' Jordan said
As reported earlier this month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Ca.) presented fake evidence during a congressional hearing on the January 6th riot at the Capitol.
Schiff cited a text from Jim Jordan to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, where he forwarded his legal opinion from former Department of Defense Inspector General Joseph Schmitz.
Schmitz argued that Vice President Mike Pence had the constitutional authority to refuse to certify electoral votes.
But Schiff made the text appear like they were from Jordan, also adding punctuation where there was none, making it appear as if Jordan was ordering Meadows and the Trump administration to overturn the results.
Jordan blasted Schiff for doctoring texts and lying during Congressional hearings.
“Adam Schiff did what other Democrats do," Jordan said.
"We saw the lawyer when they spied on Trump’s campaign alter evidence there he took to the FISA Court to get that warrant."
"So this is nothing new with the left. But it’s scary because it’s the weaponization of government against their political enemies, and that is as wrong as it gets," Jordan said on FOX News.
Given Schiff was one of the main architects of the Russian collusion narrative using the fake Steele Dossier to support it, it is no surprise he doing the same again.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, Schiff's actions were exposed by The Federalist’s Sean Davis.
Davis revealed Wednesday morning that Schiff had manipulated the text message he showed during the hearing.
In one message which Schiff attributed to a Republican lawmaker, the text was doctored to read:
“On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.”
As The Federalist reported, the January 6 committee admitted that it had manipulated the text:
In a statement provided to The Federalist via email, a Democrat spokesman for the Jan. 6 committee confessed that the committee doctored the text message.
“The Select Committee on Monday created and provided Representative Schiff a graphic to use during the business meeting quoting from a text message from ‘a lawmaker’ to Mr. Meadows,” the spokesman wrote.
“The graphic read, ‘On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.’”
“In the graphic, the period at the end of that sentence was added inadvertently,” the spokesman admitted.
