Byron York on Saturday tweeted a transcript of an interview of Rep. Adam Schiff of the House Intelligence Committee by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, and to CNN’s credit, Blitzer does acknowledge the existence of those “recently published emails” reportedly found on a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a repair shop. Blitzer kicks things off by saying that federal authorities are investigating whether those emails “are connected to an ongoing Russian disinformation effort targeting the Biden campaign.”
York seems to think the interview would have been stronger if Schiff had provided any evidence to back up his many, many claims that the “whole smear on Joe Biden” comes from the Kremlin.
“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin.”
“But, clearly, the origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin.”
“I think we know who the driving force behind this smear has been all along and it’s been the president and the Kremlin.”
President Trump’s “been the gift that doesn’t stop giving from the Kremlin.”
“This particular smear though has also been acknowledged to come from the Kremlin.”
So the two words of the day are “smear” and “Kremlin.”
On CNN, Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff says New York Post Hunter Biden story 'comes from the Kremlin.' Anchor seems to agree. Would be more persuasive if they provided evidence that 1) story is false, and 2) it 'comes from the Kremlin.' pic.twitter.com/JBILBs3YT3

For someone to lie that much there's a special place for them. I'll leave it at that.

But we still have the importance of the accusations to deal with.?

I should have said the "seriousness of the allegation." That is a powerful use of words. It is able to override the truth.

Seems reasonable. "The Russians did it" sort of seems the default excuse for everything these days.

So ‘the Russians did it’ is the new ‘my dog ate my homework’.

“Comes from the Kremlin” is the new “I was hacked”

“From the Kremlin” is their mantra. It’s based in fantasy and has been said enough that few on the left can even begin to think critically once it’s been invoked

Hunter's emails are Russian disinformation is the new version of Steve Scully saying "I was hacked".

Logically, then Hunter's laptop came from the Kremlin? I'd like to see Schiff connect the dots on that one.

Because that train is never late for Rep. Schiff. Pays off like a green grocer every time.

Americans were just dragged through the Russian collusion investigation.@RepAdamSchiff openly lied about having "evidence" then.
Journalists should be demanding evidence this time.

We don't really have much in the way of journalists. It won't happen.

Surprised he’s pushing “Russia” after it crashed and burned so badly in the very recent past.

Only evidence is both of them nodding their heads in agreement. Dopes.

Yeah, I won't be holding my breath for Schiff to supply anything but nonsensical accusations.

@RepAdamSchiff Appears to have a close relationship with Russia, regularly referencing his knowledge of their plans and work against our country
— ramechtly (@ramechtly) October 17, 2020
Isn't it obvious to everyone with the dimmest consciousness by now that Adam Schiff is not in the habit of providing evidence for his claims?
— MikeSepulveda50 (@MSepulveda50) October 17, 2020
We do have evidence that Schiff is always happy to go on CNN and make claims for which he has no evidence.
