Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 18, 2020

WSJ Editorial Board: Americans expect that politicians will lie, but sometimes the examples are so brazen that they deserve special notice.

Newly released Congressional testimony shows that Adam Schiff spread falsehoods shamelessly about Russia and Donald Trump for three years even as his own committee gathered reams of contrary evidence. The House last week released 57 transcripts of interviews from its investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

Most of the transcripts were ready for release long ago, but Mr. Schiff oddly refused to release them after he became chairman in 2019 and only released them last week when the WH threatened to do it first. Now we know why. From the earliest days of the collusion narrative, Mr. Schiff insisted that he had evidence proving the plot, teasing that he couldn't "go into particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now."

None of this was true, and Mr. Schiff knew it yet continued to lie about it.

He's still making it up. Last week he said the transcripts contain "evidence of the Trump campaign's efforts to invite, make use of, and cover up Russia's help in the 2016 presidential election."

The question we'd ask our friends in the media is when are they going to stop playing the fool by putting him on the air? Mr. Schiff is a powerful figure with access to secrets that the rest of us don't have and can't check. He misled the country repeatedly on an issue that consumed American politics.

President Trump often spreads falsehoods and invents facts, but at least he's paid a price for it in media criticism and public mistrust. An industry of media fact checkers is dedicated to parsing his every word. As for Mr. Schiff, no one should ever believe another word he says.

Collusion is not a crime.

So, who cares?

Fake news.

It's amazing how many Democrats were pushing the Russia hoax to a compliant media but when under oath they had to admit they really had nothing. Schiff has proven to be one of the biggest liars of them all and Nunes kept trying to tell the truth in the face of blistering attacks for his efforts. Yet Schiff is still held in high regard by our media and Nunes is still a black sheep. It's as if the IG report doesn't exist.

I almost want to not say it, but Schiffty and the Swamprats were doing their utmost to initiate a coup.

Jr's own emails prove Trump campaign efforts to invite, make use of and cover up Russia's help in the 2016 presidential campaign.

It is laughable to complain about a politician lying when defending the most corrupt and treasonous POTUS in the history of all POTUSs.

Couple this with the fact that the Clinton Campaign continued to meet with Fusion GPS and Steele for months after Trump got inaugurated to push the Collusion Narrative and it does make you wonder how far they were willing to do to bring down the Trump Administration.

Having Sessions as AG gave them a false sense of security. This ---- is going to get real right quick.

Is this the part where Cons say we have to know the conclusion before the investigation? Then they turn around and say we decided before even investigating. Then they say that we can't investigate unless there's already irrefutable proof. Then they ignore the irrefutable proof and attack the way it was uncovered or who uncovered it.

YAWN.

Both parties SUCK ASS. We need a parlimentary system with multiple viable parties. Not this "exceptional" system that no one else in the world will touch,for good reason. The two party system is illegitimate and disenfranchises millions of people to perpetuate a corrupt and unaccountable oligarchy. It time for REVOLUTION.

#11 | Posted by aborted_monson The difference between your observation and reality? More evidence every day. Something Schiff never had and he knew it. This creature will likely be reelected because "Orange Man bad" in the People's Republic of California.

I agree the system needs changing but revolution? No thanks. Revolutions cause many deaths and can take years of misery and no guaranteed the country would ever recover.

What a load, The President wouldn't allow the most pertinent witnesses to testify. When you post and forget how absurd it was I laugh at your posts.

Priceless. The exact same thing happens when you post, forgetting what you posted earlier in the day, week, month, etc. It's called the Scotch Matrix. How many drinks did she have when she posted that, forgetting she posted something different prior to that post?

The proof of no collusion is the reason why they are fighting the release of the unredacted Mueller report to Congress.
