GOP Leader Gets Brutally Fact-Check After Trying To Spread Lies About Adam Schiff To Undermine Trump Impeachment

Donald Trump and his allies continue to try to push a false narrative that will save the president from impeachment, but they continue to fail. On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tried to do just that by claiming that House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff “orchestrated” with the whistleblower just to bring Trump down.

“BREAKING –> Chairman Adam Schiff just got caught orchestrating with the whistleblower before the complaint was ever filed. Democrats have rigged this process from the start,” McCarthy tweeted.

McCarthy’s tweet came after the New York Times reported that the whistleblower contacted the House Intelligence Committee prior to releasing his complaint.

McCarthy’s attack quickly backfired when one of the New York Times reporters who penned the story fact-checked the GOP leader.

“Nope,” Matthew Rosenberg told McCarthy. “Not what the NYT reported.”

“The whistleblower went to an intel committee staffer with a vague account of the complaint, and was told to file through proper channels. Schiff personally never knew the whistleblower’s identity. That’s hardly ‘orchestrating’ the complaint,” Rosenberg explained.
