House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy didn’t mince words when asked to comment on Rep. Adam Schiff’s claim he has no knowledge of the Ukraine whistleblower’s identity; saying the top Democrat is flat-out “lying.”
“You just asserted…Adam Schiff either personally met with the whistleblower or knows the identity of the whistleblower, which he continues to deny…do you think he’s lying?” asked MSNBC’s Garrett Haake.
“Yes. And, I don’t think it’s the first time he’s lied to us either,” fired-back McCarthy.

President Trump unloaded on House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff last Friday; labeling the top Democrat a “corrupt politician” intentionally denying Republican lawmakers “due process” in his ongoing impeachment inquiry.
“Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician. He made up a speech and he put my voice in it. He made up a speech, it had nothing to do with what I said. Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician that’s not giving us due process,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House.
