As we told you earlier today, Rep. Adam Schiff made a further mockery of himself and the entire Democrat push for impeachment after he admitted some dialog he was reading during an opening statement clearly intended to give the impression it was from the White House transcript was merely a ‚Äúparody.‚ÄĚ In other words, Schiff read fake dialog between Trump and Zelensky knowing much of the media would run the clip and people would think it was really in the transcript. Here‚Äôs how it unfolded if you missed it:
The Ukraine Call Transcript was so damning that Adam Schiff had to completely rewrite it and make up quotes that weren‚Äôt in it.pic.twitter.com/bkB6RxLFjV

On CNN this afternoon, Wolf Blitzer asked Schiff about it, and the House Intel Chair was allowed to spin like the wind, almost completely unchallenged:
Blitzer asks Schiff in the most supportive possible way if it was a mistake fabricating dialogue from Trump's Ukraine call.
Schiff said no, and that his words were "all too accurate." pic.twitter.com/6WjmULZv1X

Is it too much to ask for a ‚Äújournalist‚ÄĚ to ask Schiff a fairly simple question, such as ‚Äúif the transcript is as damning as you say it is, why is it necessary to fabricate dialog?‚ÄĚ Apparently it is too much to ask. Instead, we get this:
Representative Schiif, did you editorialize in your recount of the contents of the content of the transcript?
Okey doke! Thank you sir https://t.co/kYer2ZwivJ

That‚Äôs exactly what just happened.
It‚Äôs truly all a big joke to them.

Being a congressional weasel means never having to say you‚Äôre sorry.
