Schiff Show: Shifty Freaks out Over McCarthy Becoming Speaker and Booting Him off Intel Committee

California Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff. What can we say about a hyperpartisan political hack who lied his ass off throughout the Russian collusion hoax nonsense, lied about Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s president, and blamed (lied about) Hunter Biden’s laptop and emails on Russia? (Trust me.)

Adam Schiff might’ve been living in high cotton in the aftermath of hapless Biden’s occupation of the Oval Office but after a year of self-inflicted crisis after self-inflicted crisis — cheered on by Congressional Democrats every step of the way — even Shifty is beginning to stare into the face of reality.

And that reality is the probability that House Democrats are going to get their asses handed to them in the 2022 midterms, likely leading to Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — love him or otherwise — becoming Speaker, and as increasingly-paranoid Schiff sees it, booting him from the House Intelligence Committee.

Shifty’s fears are not unfounded, as noted by a Politico congressional reporter.

McCarthy tells Breitbart he’ll move to strip Schiff/Swalwell from House Intel & Omar from Foreign Affairs, citing Dems’ “new standard” when they booted MTG/Gosar.

Democrats learning once again, what goes around comes around. Bummer, dude. I see your problem.

And if “all of the above” does become reality? In a word, as Shifty’s office sees it: “catastrophic.” Spokesperson Lauren French might as well have been Shifty, himself, in response to the McCarthy story:

It is always difficult to take Kevin McCarthy seriously. Nevertheless, allowing McCarty [sic] to get anywhere near the Speaker’s gavel would be catastrophic — not just because of his propensity for falsehoods and smears, but because he will exist solely to do Donald Trump’s bidding — even potentially overturning the 2024 results.

Uh-huh. Just like Trump “colluded” with Russia to win the 2016 election, right? [Rolling-eyes emoji]

Panic on Planet Schiff set in for reals after McCarthy said in an interview with Breitbart on Monday he would use the standard set by House Democrats when they stripped Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) of their committee assignments.

“You look at Adam Schiff — he should not be serving on Intel when he has openly, knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American public in the process and doesn’t have any ill will [and] says he wants to continue to do it.

We’re going to reshape — think about what happened in Afghanistan. Why did Afghanistan collapse so fast? Was the Intel Committee under Adam Schiff focused on impeachment and not on the safety of America?

McCarthy also told Breitbart he would strip Reps. Eric “Bang Bang with Fang Fang” Swalwell (Calif.) from the Homeland Security Committee and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Karma, Democrats. It happens. Deal.
