Mollie Hemingway wonders in The Federalist, when will Adam Schiff be held accountable for his lies about evidence connecting the President to Russia. She writes (abridged):
When President Trump tweeted on Sunday that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was a “CORRUPT POLITICIAN” who “has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!” the media and Democrats loudly protested, as they do, that this was a threat.
What price, political or otherwise, has Schiff paid for falsely claiming for years that he had evidence that Trump was a traitor who had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election?
Schiff had hundreds of television, radio, and public appearances during the Russia collusion hoax, during which time he used his status as the ranking member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to lie to Americans about whether the Russia collusion story was true.
The insane conspiracy theory that Trump won the 2016 election, not by appealing to voters, or running against a deeply troubled favorite of the elites, or by visiting Michigan and Wisconsin, but because he was part of a decades-long plot to work with Russia to steal the election deeply damaged the country.
It harmed relations with other countries, it terrified qualified individuals away from serving in agencies, it polarized the country, it fed the delusions of emotionally troubled people.
Now that the inspector general put out a report detailing 17 major flaws with how the DOJ went about securing warrants to spy on a Trump campaign affiliate, Schiff has not been held accountable for his lies.
Instead, the leftist hordes at CNN and MSNBC praised him sycophantically.
