Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is at it again.
The man who claimed to have absolute proof of Trump colluding with Russians will try to pull a fast one on the American people again.
This time, it is regarding the riot on January 6 at the Capitol.
Here We Go Again
Schiff is arguably the least trustworthy member of Congress today.
He has literally told dozens of lies to the American people regarding Russian collusion.
How the people of California re-elected him to office in 2018 and 2020 after those lies were exposed is rather astonishing, but that is California.
Now, Schiff is pitching a similar narrative regarding the January 6 riot, claiming that Trump was behind it all.
Schiff stated, “The evidence is very powerful that Donald Trump … began telling this big lie even before the elections, that he was saying that any ballots counted after Election Day were going to be inherently suspect.
“That lie continued after the election and ultimately led to this mob assembling and attacking the Capitol.”
Schiff later added, “But I think what’s important, again, is the broad context of all of this, the knowledge prior to Jan. 6, that there were going to be violent white nationalist groups, assembling along with others on that mall.
“And the decision by the president nonetheless to incite that mob and do nothing while that attack was taking place.”
I have stated many times that I do not think that Trump should have spoken at the rally, but that does not mean I believe he wanted a riot at the Capitol.
We should also note that when the Trump administration heard reports that there could be some nefarious actors as well overwhelming numbers for attendance, it did request National Guard troops, a request that was denied.
Pelosi has never truly been held accountable for her role in a lack of security for the Capitol that day, something one might say she did hoping a riot would break out to set up this exact scenario.
I will say this… if Dems say Trump is responsible for the events that took place on January 6, then Democrats like Schiff, Pelosi, Waters, and Harris were responsible for the rioting that took place around the country after George Floyd died.
Democrats, especially Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and then-Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said far more inflammatory things than Trump ever did to incite violence during that summer.
