House Intelligence Committee Chair and Democrat California Rep. Adam Schiff is facing the end of his career and it is his own fault.
On Friday Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that Schiff should resign over the “elaborate and intentional” Russia hoax that alleged that President Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 presidential election.
Special prosecutor Robert Mueller found, after a lengthy investigation, that there was no evidence to support that theory.
But for the better part of a year Schiff said that there was evidence that he had seen that would prove there was collusion. That evidenced was never seen.
“On Thursday the House Intelligence Committee … finally released 57 transcripts of testimony delivered to the committee behind closed doors during the Russia investigation,” he said on his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“What do the transcripts reveal? We’re not going to ask you to trust us on this one, it’s too important. Instead, we’re going to quote from the transcripts directly,” he said.
Carlson went on to quote members of former President Obama’s administration, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The evidence also showed that CrowdStrike CEO Shawn Henry spoke to Schiff in private and told him that there was no evidence of collusion, but the representative pressed on with his sham impeachment.
“Adam Schiff heard those words directly, he heard them from the one person who would know for certain,” the Fox News host said. “Schiff knew there was nothing substantial at the core of the Russian collusion story.”
“At the very center, it was hollow, it was a sham. But Schiff never suggested this in public. Instead, he did the opposite. He spent years on television telling you it was totally real, shut up,” he said.
“Every single time was a lie,” Carlson said. “If you were following this closely at the time, you might have suspected this. Schiff never produced any of this so-called evidence. He just asserted its existence.”
“After a while, we noticed. We confronted Schiff about it when he came on this show. He never answered our question. Instead, he accused us of treason,” he said.
“Adam Schiff is a sociopath,” Carlson said. “He will do or say anything to achieve power. He is unfit to hold office. He should resign.
“And not just Adam Schiff. The entire apparatus of official Washington has been exposed by these transcripts, as well as by the documents just released in the Michael Flynn case,” he said.
Carlson even went after members of the Republican Party for not stopping the hoax.
“At the time, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and every single committee,” Carlson said. “They had the power to expose this hoax and to shut it down. But they did not. We can only speculate why. Maybe they were too cowardly to tell the truth. Or maybe, deep down, a lot of them agreed with the aims of all of this.”
“Either way, it’ll be very interesting to hear Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina and so many other useless Senate Republicans – the total phonies who tell you they’re representing you but don’t – explain why they didn’t really do anything to stop the derailment of America while it was in progress,” he said.
