Trump Jr: Adam Schiff Was 'Hand-Picked By George Soros'
Don Jr. shreds anti-Trump Democrat as 'the Jussie Smollett of Congress'
The president's son, Donald Trump Jr., has blasted Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), accusing the anti-Trump member of Congress of being "hand-picked and supported by George Soros."
In a series of posts on Twitter, Don Jr. shredded Schiff, "aka #FullOfSchiff," for targetting his father by going "to the floor of Congress to lie and reinvent the words of President Trump."
The first son was criticizing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff for his handling of the early stages of the impeachment inquiry into his father, President Donald Trump.
Schiff has faced heavy criticism for reading out a fabricated version of the transcript from President Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
While addressing Congress during a live-televised hearing, Rep. Schiff read out false statements, which he suggested were made by Trump during the Ukraine call, and gave the impression that the presdient was giving the Ukrainian leader a Mafia-style shakedown and pressuring Zelensky to "make up dirt" about Joe Biden.
An intelligence community whistleblower is required to go to directly to the Inspector General, before going to congress. The fact that this anonymous whistleblower went first to seek partisan advice from a George Soros *puppet* tells you everything you need to know...— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) October 2, 2019
"And for those who don’t know who Adam Schiff is, he is not just a radical liberal, he is someone who has been hand-picked and supported by George Soros," Trump Jr. said on Twitter.
"An intelligence community whistleblower is required to go to directly to the Inspector General, before going to congress," he added.

Elsewhere, during an interview on Fox News with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, Don Jr. described Schiff as the "Jussie Smollett of Congress" for making up claims about the president.
Trump said if it was himself who had “lied” as Schiff had, he would have ended up in prison for perjury.
“If I lied, even a little bit in front of those guys like Adam Schiff has lied to the American people, and in front of Congress the other day, they’d throw me in jail for perjury,” he said.
“He’s done it over and over. He’s probably the person that magically leaked my emails and edited them, which was the big CNN bombshell which made it seem like I got the Wikileaks stuff a week before as opposed to a week after.”
Donald Jr. went on to characterize the California Democrat as “basically Jussie Smollett of Congress on steroids,” in reference to the disgraced “Empire” actor.
“I was in there for about nine hours, and magically when I got done at about 7:30 in the night, I go look at my Twitter feed to catch up on the news of the day,” the president's eldest son said.
“And starting at about the first bathroom break, CNN is live-tweeting essentially the contents of the hearing.”
“Adam Schiff has never been afraid of a microphone,” he added.
“He’s never met a camera he didn’t love.
"And frankly, he’s never met a camera he didn’t lie to.
"Adam Schiff is basically the Jussie Smollett of Congress on steroids.”
