House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff attempted to pressure former United States Special Representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker into testifying that Ukrainian officials felt pressured to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter because of Trump’s “threat” to withold U.S. military aid to Ukraine, the Washington Examiner reported. According to Volker, Ukrainian officials never actually felt pressured because they never even knew that the aid was being withheld. “When Volker repeatedly declined to agree to Schiff’s characterization of events, Schiff said, ‘Ambassador, you’re making this much more complicated than it has to be.'”
Democrats have been hinging their impeachment push on the claim that there was a quid pro quo—specifically, that Trump threatened to withhold military aid unless they investigated Joe Biden and his son, which, as the transcript proved, didn’t happen. According to this report, Adam Schiff desperately wants anyone he interviews to back up what he wants to believe.
The exchange reveals just how desperate Schiff was to get the politically convenient narrative he wanted instead of the truth.
Schiff’s handling of the impeachment nonsense has already come under scrutiny multiple times. Between this, his fabricating Trump quotes during a congressional hearing last month and his dishonesty about the contact he had with the so-called whistleblower, Schiff’s credibility has taken a lot of heavy hits recently. How much longer is this sham going to continue?
