(RepublicanNews.org) – As the politically biased January 6 Committee (J6C) continues to investigate the happenings of January 6, 2021, Democrats are again showing their true colors. One Democrat, in particular, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), seems to have a knack for tampering with evidence, a crime in most cases. A recent report exposed Schiff once again.
Fact or Fiction?
During a recent J6C hearing on December 13, Rep. Schiff claimed he had text messages between former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, whom the House recently charged with contempt of Congress, and a Congressmember. Schiff alleged that the texts were proof that a member of Congress contacted Meadows telling him to urge Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States at the time, to overturn the results of the 2020 election. However, Schiff had doctored the texts on top of misrepresenting their substance.
The Text Message Doctor
Schiff explained he wanted to share some messages with the committee from January 6, claiming people from Congress sent them to him. Rep. Schiff noted the committee was withholding the names of those involved in the conversation, citing the ongoing nature of the investigation. During the hearing, the message he displayed on the screen stated Vice President Mike Pence should cancel any electoral votes he deems unconstitutional, as his power as the President of the Senate grants.
Representative Schiff then asserted the committee needed to question Meadows about the message to ask about a lawmaker urging the Vice President to overturn the election by throwing out votes he deemed unconstitutional. Schiff both lied and fabricated evidence to support his claims.
The Actual Text
In communication with Politico on Wednesday, December 15, Representative Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) office admitted Jordan forwarded the text to Meadows and took issue with the liberties Schiff took in the texts’ presentation. The messages’ contents were drastically different from what Schiff presented during the hearing. The original message came from a former Department of Defense Inspector General and Washington attorney, Joseph Schmitz. It was simply his legal opinion on what the VP should do.
Schmitz even posted the piece where the quoted text was from on everylegalvote.com. Schmitz sent Jordan the word document on January 5, 2021, and included a three-paragraph summary of the document, which is the original text that Jordan sent to Meadows.
Schiff essentially cut the second half of the first paragraph and the following two sections out of the message and added a period. In the text that Jordan sent Meadows, a clause in the second half of the first paragraph noted Pence’s decision needed to be in accordance with Founding Father Alexander Hamilton’s judicial precedent.
Those close to Jordan also indicated the Representative would’ve never typed out a three-paragraph message, noting he only ever sends one or two-word messages that usually say “yes” or “call me.”
The Doctor Is In
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Schiff has pulled this kind of stunt. In 2017, Schiff’s committee leaked fake emails reportedly from Donald Trump Jr., allegedly indicating he communicated with someone about leaked WikiLeaks documents before their public release. In 2019, while then-President Trump was under threat of impeachment, Schiff fabricated a phone transcript between Trump and the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.
It’s no surprise Schiff would continue his track record of fabricating evidence, even if he is seemingly terrible at it. The real question is whether he will ever face prosecution for his actions.
