(ConservativeInsider.org) – It’s no secret that many people, from politicians to reporters, often distort or fail to provide all the facts or context to a story in order to push one viewpoint over another. Outright consciously intended fraud is even more disgraceful behavior and US House Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to have done just that during a hearing with the January 6th committee.
On Monday, December 13, Schiff shared an alleged text message from a GOP lawmaker to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about the 2020 presidential election results. According to Schiff, someone texted Meadows, “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.”
However, according to The Federalist, Schiff manipulated the message by shortening it, adding punctuation where it was not, and completely erasing the context of the text. Allegedly, the original words were from a Washington attorney who was providing legal reasoning for Pence’s potential ability to object to certain electoral votes. The original words were never a hard-and-fast suggestion, but a discussion around Pence’s legal role in the Senate’s proceedings.
One conservative was fired up about Schiff’s potential manipulation on Twitter:

If Schiff truly changed this message to push his own point of view, he clearly thinks he’s above the law and has the right to manipulate the information he disseminates to other lawmakers and Americans. While citizens hope their representatives are honest and have integrity, they have to wait for an investigation into this disturbing situation to truly know just what Schiff did that day.
