Adam Schiff sure is not happy about this. His epic blunder to start the impeachment hearing by misquoting President Trump ceded ground to the GOP at a critical time.
It’s hard to believe a competent person would make such a blunder with the stake so high but Pelosi’s other option was Jerry Nadler who looks like he barely knows what day it is.
And yet, that is not all that is haunting Adam Schiff these days – a formal ethic complaint was just lodged by one of his challengers.
The complaint rips Adam Schiff for trying to get foreign dirt on President Trump via the infamous prank call.
“This letter serves as an official complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) regarding Rep. Adam Schiff’s illegal collusion with foreign entities and misuse of taxpayer resources for opposition research on political enemies,” one complaint, dated Aug. 28 and filed by Jon Hollis, a Republican challenger for the seat in California’s 28th Congressional District, stated.
“The evidence supporting Adam’s Schiff’s violations of the law is compelling and irrefutable,” the complaint said, as Fox News reported.
“It is clear from the recorded phone call that Rep. Schiff knows he should not be trying to obtain opposition research on a political opponent from foreign nationals. He attempts to mask his wrongdoing by, on numerous occasions, mentioning that he will work with the FBI,” Hollis asserted in the letter.
“In so doing, Rep. Schiff is attempting to involve the FBI in his corrupt attempt to obtain dirt on President Trump. The FBI should not be in the business of teaming up with politicians to use the power of government to dig up dirt on political opponents.”
“Watching Schiff push a false narrative over and over again with Russia and now with the whistleblower complaint tells us the only thing he cares about it fake investigations,” Hollis said for Fox News. “Meanwhile, we have 60,000 homeless people in Los Angeles County, and his district is falling apart.”
Hollis, a 29-year-old political who grew up in the central Californian city of Fresno, is also pledging to fix his ailing homestead, which he accuses Adam Schiff of neglecting.
“The district historically has a 40 percent turnout, so we need to get the young people to vote. For me, the rampant homelessness is the No. 1 issue followed by mental health reform,” Hollis continued. “Mental Health is the root cause of many issues we are facing today. And our infrastructure is falling apart – our roads, schools, energy and water systems.”
