A new report on Tuesday night alleges that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to have “mischaracterized” evidence that was used in House Democrats’ impeachment investigation.

The problem stems from a letter that Schiff sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) last week that summarizes “a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani,” Politico reported. “In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas ‘continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,’ citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: ‘trying to get us mr Z.’ The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.”

Politico added, “But an unredacted version of the exchange shows that several days later, Parnas sent Giuliani a word document that appears to show notes from an interview with Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma, followed by a text message to Giuliani that states: ‘mr Z answers my brother.’ That suggests Parnas was referring to Zlochevsky not Zelensky.”

Democrat officials did not dispute the suggestion that Schiff’s claim was false.

A Republican aide told Politico that the false claim was at best the result of sloppy work.

“The most charitable view of the situation is that [Schiff’s] staff committed the equivalent of Congressional malpractice by not looking more than an inch deep to determine the facts before foisting this erroneous information on his colleagues and the American public,” one senior GOP aide told Politico. “But given the selective redactions and contextual clues, it seems as though Chairman Schiff sought to portray an innocuous meeting with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky as an insidious one with the President of Ukraine simply because both of their surnames start with the letter Z.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) responded to Schiff’s false statement by writing on Twitter: “Schiff’s sham impeachment is littered with mischaracterizations, falsehoods, & political desperation. The more Schiff speaks to the American people, the more the support for impeachment is obliterated in the court of public opinion.”

Schiff, who is Democrat impeachment manager for the Senate trial, was accused GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington of fabricating quotes while delivering remarks today.

During the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment investigation, Schiff fabricated quotes from President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and was later forced to apologize for his dishonest characterization of Trump’s remarks.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) responded at the time by writing: “When you don’t have facts on your side some just make it up. The opening statement by their ring leader was #FullofSchiff. House Dems blatantly lying to justify their impeachment inquiry is horribly timed, poorly written and badly intentioned.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) responded: “We now have both the transcript and the complaint. Anyone who reads them will see they prove what we already knew: @RepAdamSchiff and his cronies will peddle conspiracy theories and distort the truth to attack our President. It’s wrong.”

Stefanik responded: “It is disturbing and outrageous that Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff opens up a hearing of this importance with improvised fake dialogue between President Trump and President Zelenskyy. We should focus on the facts.”

Trump responded: “Rep. Adam Schiff totally made up my conversation with Ukraine President and read it to Congress and Millions. He must resign and be investigated. He has been doing this for two years. He is a sick man!”

      The sad part of it is, I really doubt if anything of merit is going to be done about Schiff lying in an attempt to impeach Trump. What he and the others are doing is treason ! It’s amazing what American citizens will tolerate from corrupt to the core politicians. They even get re-elected !

  • Gerry says:

    “mischaracterized” my a** — just like the past 3 years — the SOB just flat out lied !!!!!!!! That is the only f*****g tghing schitt-for-brains schiff does well — LIE !! I think he must have graduated at the top of the class from the “clinton/obama” school for liars .

  • Evangeline says:

    Because of this and his fabricated version of Trump’s phone call he presented to the world as the real thing, and the fact that this hasn’t been a house that discovered a crime and then went on to impeach, but a house searching desperately for a crime to impeach a president, plus the unfair hearings they did in the house, plus the fact they impeached him on purely partisan votes, not to mention the defeated Mueller investigation, all these things are illegal and for all these reasons, this whole lynching attempt should be thrown out and the perpetrators prosecuted to the highest degree!

  • mary says:

    Hey ya’ll. I would not be bit surprised at all, if one or many Damorats have copies hiding in their desk drawers or laying somewhere on their desk that shows President Trump is innocent. All I can say is this, SHAME ON YOU. After all is said on done that is when the truth will come out. TRUTH WILL COME OUT. Either now or later one. But it will come out.


    Who else is getting more disgusted every day by the lying SOB’s that keep lying about their “evidence”? Let’s end this charade NOW. .. Get rid of shitt and needler and get to work for AMERICA ! ! !
