Schiff is a conniving liar. Criticism is mounting against Rep. Adam Schiff for his handling of the whistleblower complaint — and how he’s conducting the Trump impeachment inquiry. Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chair leading the impeachment proceedings, was ripped Thursday over the closed-door testimony of former US envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker.
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan stormed out of the hours-long deposition and told reporters that Schiff wanted to limit certain members from questioning Volker. The congressman also said Schiff had barred State Department lawyers from participating in the closed briefing. “If this is how Mr. Schiff is going to conduct these types of interviews in the future,” Jordan said, “that’s a concern.”
Volker, who stepped down from his role last week, is the first witness in the congressional probe of the anonymous whistleblower complaint that included details of President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.Earlier Thursday, Schiff was ripped by liberal commentator Sam Stein for not disclosing that he was aware of the complaint before it was filed.
