Thursday on Fox Business Network’s The Evening Edit, Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) compared inveterate liar Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to disgraced actor Jussie Smollett, who was recently convicted of staging a hoax hate crime against himself in Chicago.
The show’s host aired a video clip of Schiff in which CNN propagandist anchor Wolf Blitzer noted that many of the claims in the Steele dossier had been discredited and asked, “Do you worry, Congressman, that your credibility, other Democrats’ credibility could be hurt by that and that it potentially could impact how some see this current investigation?”
“No,” Schiff replied. After saying the dossier played a “very limited role” in the investigations into Trump, Schiff added, “It doesn’t change Donald Trump’s corrupt behavior in 2016.”
“Well, Adam Schiff is misleading again,” the Fox Business host declared after airing the clip. “The Steele dossier did not play a limited role. The DOJ inspector general noted the FBI used the Steele dossier as a basis to get FISA wiretaps, meant for terrorists, to go after the Trump campaign. There goes Adam Schiff misleading again. Your word?” she asked Bishop.
“Adam Schiff is the Jussie Smollett of Congress,” Bishop replied. “He just hasn’t had his trial yet.”
