Schiff: Barr ‘Flat-Out Lying’ About China Election Threat

September 8, 2020

Sunday on CNN, Rep. Adam Schiff accused Attorney General William Barr of lying to the American people about the threat level China poses to the U.S. election.

About a CNN clip of Barr saying China is engaging in aggressive election interference, Schiff said, “That’s just a plain false statement by the attorney general, a flat-out false statement. Interestingly, some other administration officials have been trying to mislead the public by saying China is the bigger threat to the country in speaking of global terms because of the rising power of China…

“But what Bill Barr just did in that statement was just flat-out mislead the American people with a blatantly false statement,” Schiff repeated. “Joe Biden has been briefed as well as our committees, and he acknowledged as much the other day. It’s just such a disservice to the country that we can’t trust our own attorney general, but apparently, Bill Barr is willing to do anything or say anything to help Donald Trump.”

Schiff affirmed that Russia “is far more active in trying to sow disinformation, misinformation in this election” than China, and concluded that “Bill Barr is just flat-out lying to the American people, and — and it’s tragic, but it’s as simple as that.”

Schiff is the one flat-out lying. He is protecting China because his party’s candidate Biden is in China’s pocket.
