Representative Adam Schiff, D-California was on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday and was asked about the possibility of being subpoenaed when the Republicans take control of the House of Representatives in January.
Schiff is the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and one of several Democrats House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California says will be removed from committee assignments.
McCarthy has said that the Republican-led House will launch several investigations into the Biden administration’s and Democratic-controlled Congress’ handling of several issues.
Could we finally get some accountability on the open southern border, the made-up Russian collusion, and the Hunter Biden laptop with 10% for the Big Guy?
In his response, Schiff said, “We’ll have to consider the validity of the subpoena, but I would certainly view my obligation, administration’s obligation to follow the law. And the fact that they have disrespected the law is not a precedent I would hope that would be broadly followed. But we’ll have to look at the legitimacy or lack of legitimacy of what they do.”
Schiff smeared Republican Reps. Kevin McCarthy and James Comer by claiming that they don’t believe in recent congressional investigations.
McCarthy is seeking to become the Speaker of the House when Republicans take control and Comer is set to be the House Oversight Committee chair.
“[Reps. James] Comer and [Jim] Jordan and [Kevin] McCarthy will do nothing but carry Donald Trump’s water,” Schiff said.
“They will say what they need to get along with Donald Trump.”
Schiff continued, “McCarthy’s problem is not with what I said about Russia. McCarthy’s problem is that he cannot get to 218 without Marjorie Taylor Green and Paul Gosar and Matt Gaetz.”
He is referring to conservative Republican representatives from Georgia, Arizona, and Florida, respectively, whose votes he needs to become Speaker of the House.
“And so he will do whatever they ask. Right now, they are asking that I be removed from my committees and McCarthy is willing to do it,” Schiff alleges.
The California rep also accused McCarthy of having “no ideology” of his own and of only wanting to gain power in the House.
“He has no core set of beliefs. It’s very hard not only to get to 218 that way. It’s even more difficult to keep 218. That’s his problem,” Schiff said.
“So, he will misrepresent my record. He will misrepresent Eric Swalwell or Ilhan Omar, whatever he needs to do to get the votes of the QAnon caucus within his conference.”
Schiff has been lying to the American public for years and has not been held accountable.
In a 2020 Wall Street Journal Opinion/Letters, readers discussed how Schiff would have suffered some consequences for his lies in years past.
One writer wrote, “In the good old days if a member of Congress was caught in a major lie, knowingly misleading Congress and the American public, there were consequences. His own party would denounce him, the electorate would surely vote him out of office but perhaps he would resign in disgrace beforehand. But not today.
