Boom: Steve Scalise, Brit Hume Drop Kick Adam Schiff's "Parody" Account of Trump's Ukraine Call

As Bonchie wrote yesterday, the so-called “parody” stunt Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) pulled Thursday at the whistleblower hearing on the Trump/Zelensky call was one of the most despicable things to ever be done by a Congressman at one.


Instead of reading straight from the call transcript itself, Schiff just made stuff up, calling it the “essence” of what President Trump said during the July conversation. Here’s a transcribed refresher on his acting performance for those who missed it:

We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what, I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you, though, and I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good.

I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, and not just any people. I’m going to put you in touch with Attorney General of the United States, my attorney general Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him and I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy. You’re going to love him, trust me.

You know what I’m asking, and so I’m only going to say this a few more times in a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I’ve asked.

Here’s the video of Schiff’s theatrical stunt:


Schiff, who is the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, was called out for his disgusting stunt shortly thereafter. He ended up admitting what he said was “in part, a parody” (though there was no “in part” about it):

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and veteran Fox News journalist Brit Hume both torched Schiff in response, noting the reason why he had to fabricate the conversation was because the actual conversation didn’t prove Trump did anything impeachable:


Sadly, Schiff wasn’t the only Congressman Thursday who resorted to inventing things that were never said:
