Adam Schiff Literally Doctored Evidence to Target Trump Supporters

Adam Schiff Literally Doctored Evidence to Target Trump Supporters

( – Ordinarily secretive, the January 6 Select Committee recently held an open hearing. During that meeting, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) read a text message reportedly sent to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows that later turned out to have been doctored.

On December 15, The Federalist reported Schiff tampered with the text’s content. After reviewing the message in its entirety, The Federalist discovered Schiff only revealed the first portion of the first sentence of the message. In doing so, he replaced a hyphen with a period, making it appear the message was complete.

Read in this context, the message suggested then-Vice President Mike Pence should “call out” any electoral votes considered unconstitutional. The omitted portion of the message included a legal argument for doing so and a reference to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

The Federalist attributed the message to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) but didn’t explain how it obtained its information. However, POLITICO reached out to Rep. Jordan’s office later in the day and received confirmation the text message was one Jordon forwarded to Meadows from former Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Schmitz.

One cannot help but feel outraged that a sitting member of Congress feels free to doctor evidence to target Trump supporters. Besides, when did it become illegal to discuss legal theories with fellow Republican officials?
