Schiff: Select Committee Investigating Capitol Chaos as ‘Conspiracy to Commit a Coup’

September 23, 2021

Wednesday on MSNBC’s Deadline, Rep. Adam Schiff stated that the House Select Committee on January 6 was investigating the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol as a “conspiracy to commit a coup.”

“The predominant worry I have about our democracy is not that it’s the going to be overthrown by a violent revolution — notwithstanding that we endured a violent attempt at insurrection — but rather there will be quasi-legal means that so undermine our democracy that it creates a crisis and it falls apart,” Schiff blathered.

Fact check: even the Biden administration’s own FBI concluded that the events of January 6 were not an “insurrection” or a planned coup of any kind.

“This is what the Republicans tried to do, the Trump campaign and administration tried to do with this memo, but it’s also what GOP party leaders are trying to do around the country by stripping independent elections officials of their powers and handing them to partisan boards, so they can succeed where they failed with this attempted coup,” Schiff ranted.

Fact check: again, there was no attempted coup. And in fact, it is the Democrats who create partisan boards, like the House investigation into the Jan. 6 “coup” and the Russian collusion investigation before that.

Fact check: MSNBC is a leftist propaganda outlet and Schiff is a well-documented liar.
