At today’s impeachment trial, House manager Adam Schiff pulled his “parody” routine again in regards to the transcript of President Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, but he also made a claim about the whistleblower that’s enough to make your eyes roll out of your head:
Adam Schiff just lied on the floor of the United States Senate during an impeachment trial. Talk about abuse of power! pic.twitter.com/NG2myMxKWy

Yeah, is anybody buying what Schiff’s selling? As Trump’s defense pointed out, Schiff certainly isn’t forthcoming in being transparent about his office’s contacts with the whistleblower:
Philbin: reports of contact between the whistleblower and Schiff’s staff are “shrouded in secrecy”

And that’s just the way Schiff would like to keep it. But we do already know Schiff’s relationship with the truth is tenuous at best:

He’s not called “Shifty Schiff” for nothing:
Adam Schiff just claimed on the Senate floor that he doesn't know the identity of the whistleblower.

It’s no wonder Schiff wouldn’t want to go under oath as an impeachment trial witness to help fill in some of the missing picture about how it all got started:

There’s a ZERO percent chance Adam Schiff doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower.
How does he lie so easily? It’s really quite remarkable. He’s prosecuting the Pres of the United States in front of the Chief Justice & these lies just keep flowing right out of his mouth.

In other words, the California congressman remains totally full of Schiff.
