Congressman Adam Schiff faced a growing backlash Thursday after images he used during his Committee’s investigation into the January 6th Capitol Riots were digitally altered, with a spokesperson calling the incident a “regrettable error.”
“I Want to display just a few of the messages he received from people in Congress. The Committee is not naming the lawmakers at this time,” said Schiff on a virtual call.

“The Select Committee on Monday created and provided Representative Schiff a graphic to use during the business meeting quoting from a text message from ‘a lawmaker’ to Mr. Meadows,” the spokesman wrote. “The graphic read, ‘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.’”
“In the graphic, the period at the end of that sentence was added inadvertently,” the spokesman admitted. “The Select Committee is responsible for and regrets the error.”

“I’m certainly not satisfied that the intelligence supports the conclusion that the killing of Soleimani was going to either prevent attacks on the United States or reduce the risk to American lives,” Schiff told the Post.
“I don’t think the intelligence was of the kind of character that would lead to a uniform recommendation that Soleimani should be killed,” Schiff added. “I think that was an impulsive judgment made by the president.”

ANOTHER SCHIFF SHOW? Schiff Vows to ‘Get to the Bottom’ of New ‘Whistleblower Complaint’
Congressman Adam Schiff suggested this week the House Intelligence Committee could launch another probe into Russian election interference; promising to “get to the bottom” of a new “whistleblower complaint.”
“We will get to the bottom of this, expose any and all misconduct or corruption to the American people, and put a stop to the politicization of intelligence,” said Congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the committee.
“We’ve received a whistleblower complaint alleging DHS suppressed intel reports on Russian election interference, altered intel to match false Trump claims and made false statements to Congress,” Schiff, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “This puts our national security at risk.”
