Adam Schiff, who knowingly lied about the Trump-Russia collusion hoax, repeated his baseless claims that President Donald Trump incited the attack at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
On Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said: “I remember your impatience during the January 6 Committee’s work with the Justice Department’s apparent lack of interest in the ground you are covering.”
“It’s now very clear Jack Smith is on the case. On a case that you, in effect, sent to them, have presented to them. Where should he be looking for, especially in relation to that meeting?”
“I think what he’s gonna be looking for is, what is the evidence of the president’s intent, his knowledge?”
“How far was he willing to go to overturn the near election? Which would be very important if he’s considering a conspiracy charge to defraud the United States,” Schiff said.
“Because what we saw was they began by, the president began by trying to stop the counting of the absentee ballots.”
“When that didn’t work, he tried to stop states from certifying him as a loser and Joe Biden as the winner. When they did work, you try to get state legislatures to go back into session in declared the loser the winner,” Schiff continued.
“And when that didn’t work, they tried this fake elector plot,” Schiff said.
“When that didn’t work in this December meeting, they were entertaining having the military seize voting machines, declaring martial law.”
“You just had these extremely crazy dangerous proposals being debated within the president’s team,” he added.
“We divided them, or they divide themselves, into team crazy and team not as crazy. But it culminated in the violence of January 6. And the end of this December meeting, this is when the president tweets out to people to be there on the sixth, that this will be wild.”
“So, not getting the answers he wanted in this meeting, he goes to the extreme of inciting this attack on the Capital.”
Last month, President Trump called for any Republican voting against Democrat Adam Schiff’s censure to be “immediately primaried.”
In a post in Truth Social, Trump wrote:
“Anna Paulina Luna is a STAR. She never gives up, especially in holding total lowlifes like Adam “Shifty” Schiff responsible for their lies, deceit, deception, and actually putting our Country at great risk, for which he should be imprisoned!”
“He is a Leaker and a Scoundrel. Any Republican voting against his CENSURE, or worse, should immediately be primaried. There are plenty of great candidates out there!”
