Top Trump antagonist Adam Schiff humiliated by debunking of Russia bounty story

Ever since President Joe Biden took office in January, a growing number of the claims, promises, and criticisms he and his surrogates employed during the 2020 campaign have been revealed as misleading at best and outright dishonest at worst, and now another of those highly-publicized assertions from last year has just been outed as false.

In a turn of events that is particularly humiliating for House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), previous reports that the Russian government placed bounties on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan – claims he touted as evidence of former President Donald Trump’s deference to Vladimir Putin – have now been debunked by none other than the Biden administration itself, as the Daily Caller reports.

During the presidential campaign last year, then-candidate Biden accepted as fact the claim that Russia had been providing payments to members of the Taliban to kill U.S. service members in Afghanistan, using it as a cudgel against the sitting president. When questioned on the subject during an October debate with Trump, Biden said, “I don’t understand why this president is unwilling to take on Putin when he’s actually paying bounties to kill American soldiers,” as NBC News noted.

The story, first raised by the New York Times last summer, caused a significant partisan uproar at the time, prompting Trump at the time to denounce it as “just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party,” adding that intelligence officials had reached “no consensus” on the claims, according to Fox News. A senior official told the outlet last summer that the claim was founded on “several streams of intelligence of concern,” including reports that were in some parts contradictory and subject to interpretation.

Schiff, however, was among those on the left who immediately piled on then-President Trump, accepting the unverified allegation as truth that Republicans were unwilling to confront Putin about something that placed American troops “in danger,” later tweeting, “Americans are outraged by reports that Russia offered bounties on U.S. troops. The only American who isn’t? Donald Trump. Trump is again taking the Kremlin’s side and calling it a hoax.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also jumped at the chance to slam Trump over the spurious bounty allegations last summer, tweeting, “Now I get why @realDonaldTrump won’t stand up to Putin for bounties on our troops. Does Trump act as a Russia agent? Yes. But, Trump also thinks any US troops killed by Russia bounties are suckers” or “losers.” He hasn’t defended them. He never will.”

However, on Thursday, a senior official inside the Biden administration admitted that the intelligence community had just “low to moderate” confidence in the premise underlying the bounty story, indicating that it remains unproven and may indeed be entirely false, Fox News added.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked whether the current president has regrets about raising the issue so forcefully against Trump last year, merely replying that she would not “speak to the previous administration,” but argued that there had been “enough concern” at the time for intelligence officials to “truly look into it.”

Given Schiff’s unwavering prior dedication to wholly unsupported allegations of Trump–Russia collusion, of which he claimed to have seen “ample evidence…in plain sight,” it should probably come as no surprise that he was fully on board with spreading the bounty falsehood as well. Unfortunately, shame or remorse about repeatedly lying to the American people simply isn’t part of the Democrats’ modus operandi, especially when Donald Trump is involved.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

They and most other DEMOCRATS are working hard to destroy the USA. Even up to, and including sleeping with the enemy (Swalwell shacked up with Chinese Spy, Fang Fang for a year, and his DEMOCRAT cohorts are fine with it.)

If it were a question of which state has the dumbest people in the country, California makes a good case to be that. When the people of a state elect fools like Pelosi, Schiff, Swalwell, Waters, Newsom, etc. you have to be pretty dumb!

Roger,
Unfortunately, I live in the state of Can-I-F***ya and you’re absolutely correct!! There are those of us who haven’t drank the kool-aid, but WOW, I have to admit that this state of fruits and nuts produces THEE most corrupt and evil group of DemonRats in any one state!! My saying is that this state is “first with the worst”. New York runs a very close second in this race. I can’t wait until Grabbin’ Gruesome, our lying, cheating, EVIL governor is recalled!! What a glorious day that will be!! Then we get Nasty Piglosi, Adam Shi–TT, Eric Fartswell, Maxine someone oughtta swat her and Diane Not so Fine-stein the hell out of there! We need to wake these demonRats in this state the hell up and out of their comas!! Oh, and get rid of the teachers union!!

Hi Trump4EVER: I sent you a lengthy reply but it did not get posted. The Communist teachers’ union was set up to dumb down America’s youth by feeding them Marxist propaganda. The only way to stop them is to bust up the union. Dumbing down the American youth was just one of 45 Communist goals to takeover America from within.

That little t*rd and all his other cohorts are not humiliated – never have been and never will with the sycophantic media covering for every blessed piece of excrement that is uttered by these anti american so called politicians. Only way to humiliate them is to beat them at the ballot box and then hope that whatever they touch fails miserably since that is what they planned for every American that does not toe the leftist woke lying cheating line.

The UnAmerican Digest strikes again. Just to verify that Putin didn’t pull this cretinous attack, why not ask him? And then also ask him if he has ordered his major opposition poisened? Adam Schiff has more credibility, more balls, a higher intellect and integrity than all you Trump idiot sycophants put together.

Adam Schiff was most likely the anonymous leak as he had been several times during the trump administration. 3 years of regurgitating the Russian fraud. A year of spewing his own manufactured Ukraine fantasy. then this.Everything out of his mouth is a lie. Swawell sleeping with a chinese spy yet they both still sit on the intelligence committee. How is this possible? They both belong in jail if not even worse for being the treasonous traitors they are. Especially Schiff,who illegally obtained the presidents & american citizens phone records,manufactured the Ukraine fraud & the phoney whistleblower,denied the POTUS His constitutional rights during his secret hearings. & everyone who voted to impeach the POTUS with no crime or misdemeanor committee reason & should be charged according !

Biden, does not care if he is spouting a lie. His only goal was to be president, by hook or crook. Look at the lie he continued to repeat, regarding Georgia’s new election laws. Even repeating the lies after he received four Pinocchio’s. Eric Swalwell repeating the Russia Hoax lies, and he was sleeping with a Chinese spy.
