During an opening statement before the House Intelligence Committee, chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) started reading what was supposed to be a transcript of a call between President Trump and the president of Ukraine. The only problem was that the words Schiff read were not actually from an actual transcript.
Appearing on ABC’s ‘This Week,’ Schiff was pressed by host George Stephanopoulos to address why he thought it was acceptable to just make some quotes up out of thin air.

What a revealing question posed by Stephanopoulos: “If the facts are as damning as you say, why make up dialogue?”
Adam Schiff’s invented dialogue, which he dishonestly ascribed to Pres Trump, reveals the cheap tactics employed by the Democrats in this present impeachment imbroglio. https://t.co/AhPOn2zH9m

Schiff fauxsplained away his antics to CNN by saying his “parody” was “all too accurate.”

The fact that George Stephanopoulos is calling out Adam Schiff should tell Democrat leadership a lot.
