VIDEO: Adam Schiff Confronted By Citizen About Lying to Congress at South Carolina Airport
Gateway Pundit reports an unidentified concerned citizen filmed himself confronting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) at a South Carolina airport Sunday evening over Schiff lying to Congress during a hearing this past week by making up quotes by President Trump. Schiff made up Trump’s words at a hearing on September 26 with DNI Joseph Maguire about a whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that has prompted an impeachment investigation by the House authorized by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (but not by a vote of the chamber.)
The man who confronted Schiff was firm, but polite. On the video he did not scream, yell, swear or threaten Schiff. He waited for Schiff to step out of an airport shop before approaching and walking with Schiff to speak with him for a brief while without impeding him.
Schiff in turn was also polite but declined to comment, saying he was there for a wedding. The videotaped confrontation lasted about twenty seconds with Schiff walking away saying, “Have a nice day.”
However, the man claims a Schiff aide called him what is now considered a gay-baiting slur off-camera.
“So, flying out of Greenville – Spartanburg tonight. Who is at my gate? @RepAdamSchiff the biggest liar in DC! Can’t even answer simple questions about his lies last week on camera. What a beta, can’t defend himself when confronted. And his aid called me a coc**ucker off cam.”

Man: “Hey, so why did you lie to Congress and the committee the other day on TV? Why did you make it up?”
Schiff: “I’m here for a wedding.”
Man: “It doesn’t matter. When I’m at home, at home to watch…”
Schiff: “I’m really not interested in talking with you”
Man: “Why don’t you just tell the truth if you’re on TV, about Trump, huh? You gotta lie about it?”
OP ED: President Trump has been the target of congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) since before he even took the presidential oath of office.
Schiff has seemingly, knowingly lied about, among other things, having what multiple investigations have seemingly determined is non-existent evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.
As the ranking member, and later the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (HPSCI), Schiff had an obligation to put party politics and dirty tricks aside and to tell American people the truth.
Instead Schiff has, in my opinion, knowingly and constantly presented false testimony from his lofty position on the HPSCI.
Yesterday, relying solely on a complaint by a ‘whistleblower’ who had no firsthand knowledge of President Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, Schiff attempted to advance a narrative supporting impeachment with no there, there.
Whistleblower statement: “I was not direct witness to most of the events described.”
Totally outrageous! https://t.co/gnmlplGyrw

Schiff, who has been burned a number of times over the past three years for being the face of these false narratives, is either too partisan to chair such an important committee or too ignorant to realize the similarity in format and writing to the past false complaints he advanced.
What we know about this so-called "whistleblower":
He didn't hear any conversations between @realDonaldTrump and Ukraine first-hand.
His lawyer worked for Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and donated to Joe Biden.

Either way, it sure seems to me that should disqualify him from conducting future investigations.
I believe that any witness to appear before the committee and that likewise gives false testimony would face legal recrimination.
(The American Thinker) After watching Adam Schiff’s reprehensible performance in his committee hearing Thursday morning, it is clear we are benighted by yet another sinister, scheming member of the House who, like Shakespeare’s Iago, is adept at (and enjoys) ruining lives. He set out to ruin President Trump’s and has been working at it diligently for three years. Since the moment President Trump was elected, it has been Schiff, more than any other member of Congress, who has been the public face of the attempted coup designed to get Trump out of the White House. He has lied and leaked relentlessly for nearly three years, promising that Mueller had the goods. He did not.
From the transcript:
THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. I just watched a little bit of this on television. It’s a disgrace to our country. It’s another witch hunt. Here we go again. It’s Adam Schiff and his crew making up stories and sitting there like pious whatever you want to call them. It’s just a — really, it’s a disgrace.
It’s a terrible thing for our country. They can’t do any work. They’re frozen — the Democrats. They’re going to lose the election; they know it. That’s why they’re doing it. And it should never be allowed, what’s happened to this President.
The Inspector General for the Intelligence Community found that the so-called “whistleblower” had “some indicia of an arguable political bias… in favor of a rival political candidate.”
That’s Washington speak for “they were out to get the President.”

If Schiff had been serious about determining the truth behind the whistleblower’s complaint he would have subpoenaed members of the intelligence committee who were actually listening in on President Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy.
Is Schiff calling all of those who were actually listening in on the call liars incapable of telling the truth? Aren’t they members of the same intelligence community Schiff, and his fellow Never Trumpers, tell us are beyond reproach?
“I am calling for him [Schiff] to immediately resign from Congress based on this fraud.” – President Trump
