Once again, the rhetoric from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has been discredited by facts. With the release of the rough transcript of the July 25 call between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Trump, Schiff’s prediction that it would show Trump had “crossed the Rubicon” has failed to materialize.
There was no quid pro quo – no “browbeating” of a foreign leader. Just two heads of state talking about Ukraine’s role in 2016 U.S. election interference and discussing getting to the bottom of the corruption that has spilled over between the two countries.
With his history of deliberately distorting the truth, secretly disclosing classified information, and openly converting the House Intelligence Committee into a partisan opposition research operation, Schiff has repeatedly proven he cannot be trusted.
