(Liberty Bell) – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam “Shifty” Schiff has proven himself time and again to be nothing more than a puppet of the progressive movement’s plan to oust President Trump and effectively cancel out the voice of middle America in the 2016 election, presiding over impeachment proceedings that were the very definition of embarrassing.
Anyone with two fully functioning brain cells could tell that the impeachment hearings were geared toward digging around to try and find something, anything, they could use as an excuse to impeach Trump. They want desperately to boot him from office before the 2020 election, knowing full well they will lose if they have to face him next November.
Well, Schiff finally got a taste of his own medicine, thanks in no small part to America’s Voice correspondent Ben Bergquam, who confronted Shifty Schiff on Capitol Hill, asking him a question that no doubt left him infuriated.
Here’s what happened via Gateway Pundit:
America’s Voice correspondent Ben Bergquam confronted Rep. Adam Schiff on Capitol Hill on Thursday before the Democrat party-line vote to impeach President Trump.
Berguam ran into the serial liar on his way to the cafeteria and asked him, “When you’re brought up for treason, what will your response be then?”
Bergquam told Schiff read Schiff his Miranda Rights!!

James D. Schultz put up a rather interesting think piece on CNN — yes, that’s right, the mother of all fake news outlets, just bear with us — that you should check out. Here’s a few bits from that piece on Adam Schiff:
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), has turned what was once a respected committee into one which fosters further public distrust in an already unpopular body of government. His impeachment investigation has little to do with fact-finding and most everything to do with undoing an election.
Pundits have frequently complained that the president has not been afforded due process by Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). While this criticism might be legally misplaced — due process is not constitutionally guaranteed in the House’s consideration of impeachment — the credibility of the impeachment process has been rightfully questioned.
Schiff presided over a politically-motivated impeachment investigation that is further dividing the country. And he hasn’t had to answer for any part he has played in this fiasco. At least not yet.
Schiff has acknowledged some of the problems in the report released last week by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, on the origins of the Russia investigation and the issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants for a Trump campaign official. But, as the Washington Post points out, Schiff “does not acknowledge his prior role in casting doubt on such claims.”
The IG said he found no intentional misconduct or political bias, even though the report reveals that a nearly two-year-old memofrom Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, written by Schiff, downplayed potential issues with the investigation.
In a memo released in January 2018, Schiff wrote, “FBI and DOJ officials did not ‘abuse’ the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.” He also went on to write that the DOJ “made only narrow use of information from [Christopher] Steele’s sources about [Carter] Page’s specific activities in 2016…”
This “narrow use” of the Steele dossier, however, was crucial to making the decision to secure the FISA order, the IG report released early last week found. Horowtiz writes that “receipt of Steele’s election reporting on September 19, 2016, played a central and essential role in the FBI’s and Department’s decision to seek the FISA order.”
And, alarmingly, the IG report also found there were “17 significant errors or omissions” in the Carter Page FISA applications.
But even if Schiff’s “nothing-to-see-here” approach to the Horowitz report is successful, the ongoing Department of Justice criminal investigation, led by federal prosecutor John Durham, into how the Trump-Russia probe got started, is another matter.
At the end of the day, the conclusion that folks seem to be reaching right now is that Schiff isn’t the kind of man who should be trusted. It certainly seems that the only thing the man cares about is promoting his own career, regardless of who he has to destroy in order to make that happen.
