Schiff Confronted on House Floor About Russia-Gate Hoax, Hunter Biden’s Scams

'I think everyone is aware of every bit of information that you all have tried to peddle over the last four years... '

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was confronted on the House floor this week about the investigations he led into the Russia-Gate hoax and Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business dealings.

The confrontation came during a floor debate ahead of a vote on the Protecting Our Democracy Act, a bill proposed in response of former President Donald Trump’s “overreaching” presidential action. 

But, as Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, noted, Schiff lost all credibility to weigh in on executive authority when he helped fuel the Russia-Gate hoax.

“Every time Chairman Schiff rises to speak on a bill about intelligence and security and holding the president accountable, I get excited hoping we’re going to hear about that evidence of collusion and all the other investigations that were conducted in the House,” Comer said.

Schiff responded by continuing to defend his investigation into the debunked allegations of collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, which were further discredited earlier this year by special counsel John Durham.

“Are you aware,” Schiff said to Comer, “that the president’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort [secretly] met with an agent of Russian intelligence and provided Russian intelligence with internal campaign polling data, as well as strategic insights about their intelligence in key battleground states? Are you aware of that?”

Comer responded: “I think everyone is aware of every bit of information that you all have tried to peddle over the last four years.”

Comer then brought up Hunter Biden’s business dealings and asked why Schiff didn’t bother to investigate those.

“Are you aware of President Biden’s son Hunter’s art dealings?” Comer asked. “Are you aware of the president’s son’s dealings … in Congo with the cobalt mine? Are you aware of the dealings in Ukraine?”

However, Schiff continued to deflect back to Trump and the former president’s family.
