HAH-HAH! GOP Rep. Owns Adam Schiff Over FISA Memo Freakout: He’s “FULL OF SCHIFF” Sometimes (VIDEO)

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) joined CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday evening and accused his House Intelligence Committee colleague, Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA), of being “full of schiff,” at times. 

When asked why House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes won’t publicly rebuke Schiff’s claim about the White House and Committee members coordinating the FISA abuse memo’s release, Zeldin replied, “Listen, I wasn’t in the meeting tonight that took place, but, Congressman Schiff, you could say, has been full of schiff at some times.”

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL), or likely one of his colleagues, was caught leaking fake news to the Daily Beast about Rep. Nunes reportedly denying to comment on potential coordination between himself and the White House pertaining to the memo’s release.

Raw Story reports:

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Tuesday declined to say whether he worked with the White House on the anti-FBI memo written by members of his staff, the Daily Beast reports.

His refusal came during a closed-door committee meeting, during which Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) asked Nunes if his staffers engaged with the White House as they wrote the memo alleging improper surveillance by the FBI during the 2016 presidential election. […]

As the Beast reports, Nunes told Quigley, “I’m not answering” when asked point-blank about possible communications with the White House.

As The Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross noted, Nunes did reply to the question. His answer? “I would just answer, as far as I know, no.”

“Another false leak from House Intelligence Committee Democrats,” added Ross.

What’s particularly humiliating about the Daily Beast’s report is that the release of the meeting’s transcript was inevitable. Once it was released, anyone could see the report was false.

On Monday evening, Schiff announced the Committee voted unanimously to release their 10-page “counter-memo.”

The California lawmaker believes the counter-memo will correct the Nunes memo’s “distortions and inaccuracies.”

Democrats have fought hard to paint the memo as a hyper-partisan piece of propaganda aimed at discrediting the ‘Trump-Russia’ collusion investigation. Nobody worked harder to keep the memo classified than Schiff.

Schiff’s position on the memo has been nothing short of “Schiffty,” having first branded the memo nothing more than Republican propaganda, then claiming the document shouldn’t be made public because Americans wouldn’t understand it, to announcing House Intelligence Democrats would be releasing a “counter-memo.”

The document will now head to the White House for approval.
