As the Democrats push for President Donald Trump's impeachment, the media has not only failed to focus on Joe Biden's increasingly apparent corruption with Ukraine, but also the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff was once fooled by Russian shock-jocks offering dirt on the president.

In January 2018, Russian comedians posing as the former speaker of Ukrainian parliament Andriy Parubiy, offered Schiff dirt on Trump, The Daily Caller reported. 

What did the Russian sock jocks have?

They claimed to be in possession of nude photos of Trump.

In the phone call, it shows how Schiff is s perfectly willing to get information on his political opponents from foreign sources, something he and the Democrats are trying to impeach Trump for.

“The Russian radio hosts, Vladimir ‘Vovan’ Kuznetzov and Alexey ‘Lexus’ Stolyarov, who have close ties to the Kremlin, told Schiff that the Kremlin had naked photos of Trump and that ‘Parubiy’ could provide audio of [Russian journalist Ksenia] Sobchak and [Russian model and singer Olga] Buzova discussing the photos,” Fox News reported.

“They also told Schiff that former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn had met with another Russian to talk about how to prevent the photos from going public.”

But Schiff claims he knew it was a prank.

So, you have recordings of both [Russian journalist Ksenia] Sobchak and [Russian model and singer Olga] Buzova where they’re discussing the compromising material on Mr. Trump?” Schiff said to “Parubiy.”

“Absolutely,” replied Kuznetzov, who was posing as Parubiy.

“Well, obviously we would welcome a chance to get copies of those recordings,” Schiff said.

Schiff, who was then just the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was very willing to talk about the details of the alleged recording.

Schiff describes asking for dirt on you opponent as malfeasance:

"What we have seen in that call record is a president of the United States uses the full weight of his office … to manufacture dirt on his opponent and interfere in our election," he said.

The overall notion of Schiff's statement is: Accepting dirt from Ukraine is very, very bad.

Unless he does it, of course.

Schiff claims he was aware the call was a prank and had notified law enforcement.

“Before agreeing to take the call, and immediately following it, the committee informed appropriate law enforcement and security personnel of the conversation, and of our belief that it was probably bogus,” he said in a statement.

But why would Schiff say he was interested in the information?

Last month, Trump called out Schiff (D-CA) for fabricating statements from the Ukraine call transcript, asking if the top Democrat should be arrested "for treason."

The president has been rightly outraged after California Democrat Schiff fabricated statements during a live-televised congressional hearing while addressing the House Intelligence Committee last Thursday.

Schiff was speaking before Congress shortly after the White House released the transcript from the now-infamous phone call between President Trump and Ukraine's newly elected leader President Volodymyr Zelensky.
