House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy unleashed on Adam Schiff today, saying he does not believe Schiff’s claim that he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower.
“Yes,” McCarthy said when a reporter asked if he believes Schiff is lying. “And I don’t think it’s the first time he lied to us, either. “
At the impeachment hearing yesterday, Schiff told the Republicans on the Intelligence Committee that he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower. Interestingly enough, the whistleblower contacted a staff member on Schiff’s team about the complaint earlier this year.
“I do not know the identity of the whistleblower, and I’m determined to make sure that identity is protected,” Schiff told Jim Jordan.
Kevin McCarthy said Schiff has a history of lying, and he pointed to Schiff’s unsubstantiated claims that there is evidence Trump colluded with Russians. In addition, he added that Schiff also lied when he initially said his office had no contact with the whistleblower.
“I think he has lied numerous times, and I do not think he is fit to be in charge of this committee,” McCarthy said.
