Adam Schiff, one of the most outspoken Anti-Trump Pro-Dossier Democrats in the House Intelligence Committee, got played by some Russian Comedians, claiming that they had naked pictures of President Donald Trump.
What’s even better, they told him that Russian President Vladimir Putin was using them to blackmail Trump.
And he fell for it! In the audio recordings, the comedians, nicknamed “Vovan” and “Lexus” contacted Schiff last year, posing as officials from Ukraine offered the dirty on Trump.
Schiff thanked “chairman Andriy Parubiy,” an entirely made up person and warned him that Russians may be spying on their phone call.
“I would caution that our Russian friends may be listening to the conversation so I wouldn’t share anything over the phone that you wouldn’t want them to hear,” Schiff said.
Nick Short via Twitter: ““Adam Schiff can be heard discussing the committee’s Russia investigation and increasingly bizarre allegations about Trump with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.” Schiff has some explaining to do.”
After a lengthy conversation, Schiff told the “chairman” that he would contact US Intel agencies on the matter:
“I’ll be in touch with the FBI about this. And we’ll make arrangements with your staff. I think it probably would be best to provide these materials both to our committee and to the FBI,” Schiff said.
A spokesperson for Schiff later claimed that he knew it was a prank phone call and that he immediately “alerted appropriate law enforcement personnel.”
Yeah… right… you know he was hoping, praying, this was real. With the Dems story falling apart left and right this would have sealed the deal in his eyes. I’m speculating on his thoughts on the matter of course, but where would your mind be?
How many people think foreign comedians are going to go to such great lengths to prank someone? Even someone in Schiff’s position.
