Schiff Still Lying: J6 Inquisition Admits Doctoring Texts as House Holds Meadows in Contempt

'Is anyone surprised that Adam Schiff is again rifling through private text messages and cherry-picking information to fit his partisan narrative and sow misinformation?...'

The January 6 Committee issued a statement to the Washington Examiner apologizing for Rep. Adam Schiff’s use of doctored text messages in a successful bid to persuade the House to hold President Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress.

The J6 Inquisitor’s weak explanation for the alleged error in text translation, which erased whole paragraphs and significantly altered the context of the message:

“The Select Committee on Monday created and provided Representative Schiff a graphic to use during the business meeting quoting from a text message from ‘a lawmaker’ to Mr. Meadows. The graphic read, ‘On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.’ In the graphic, the period at the end of that sentence was added inadvertently. The Select Committee is responsible for and regrets the error.”

Just a period added, inadvertently, to the end of sentence; nothing to see here, move along – which it would appear the majority of leftist media did.

The ugly extent of Schiff’s manufacturing evidence was revealed in an investigative report published by Sean Davis at The Federalist, which claimed that Rep. Schiff “erased significant portions” of a text forwarded to Meadows by Rep. Jim Jordan and “added punctuation where there was none to give the impression that Jordan himself was tersely directing Meadows to give orders to Pence on how to handle the electoral vote certification.”

The original text was sent to Jordan by former Department of Defense Inspector General Joseph Schmitz, who also provided a document detailing “legal reasoning for suggesting that Pence had the constitutional authority to object to the certification of electoral votes submitted by a handful of states,” according to Davis.

The Federalist report continued:

In his statement and on-screen graphic, Schiff erased the final two paragraphs and the final clause of the first paragraph of the text message before inserting punctuation that was never there, all without disclosing what he was doing. The graphic displayed by Schiff, which was doctored to look like an exact screenshot, was similarly doctored, as it contained content that was never in the original message and eliminated content that was.

The Federalist also detailed Schiff’s “long history of doctoring and fabricating evidence to show their political enemies in the worst possible light,” including his “parody” of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Is anyone surprised that Adam Schiff is again rifling through private text messages and cherry-picking information to fit his partisan narrative and sow misinformation?” asked Jordan spokesman Russell Dye.

The revelation of the J6 Committee’s malfeasance came too late for Meadows, however, as the House voted mostly along party lines to hold the former chief of staff in contempt. Democrats were joined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s handpicked J6 Committee Republicans Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R- Ill.
