Schiff: Those Defying January 6 Subpoenas Will ‘Very Quickly’ Be Held in ‘Criminal Contempt’

October 14, 2021

Wednesday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, inveterate liar Rep. Adam Schiff threatened that the subjects of the January 6 select committee who refused to respond to subpoenas would be “quickly” referred for criminal prosecution.

Schiff said, “We are deadly serious about getting to the bottom of everything that happened up to January 6th and thereafter.”

Fact check: if Democrats were deadly serious about getting to the bottom of the January 6th chaos, they would investigate the FBI entrapment and the Antifa instigation of the “insurrection” falsely blamed on Trump supporters.

“And if witnesses don’t appear when they’re supposed to, if they don’t produce the documents, we intend to move very quickly to have a vote in the House to hold them in criminal contempt, refer it to the Justice Department for prosecution,” Schiff warned.

“I think if someone thumbs their nose at the law, doesn’t comply, is prosecuted, it will be a powerful message to others that they darn well better comply,” Schiff blustered. “It’s a whole different ballgame when you are talking about criminal preceding.”

Democrats care nothing about the rule of law. They care only about the intimidation of power, and they know “darn well” that they themselves manufactured this “insurrection” in order to weaponize it against Trump supporters. Once again, Schiff is lying to cover up Democrat malfeasance, and the complicit media help shape the narrative.
