Congressman Matt Gaetz made an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” and stated that the GOP intends to call Representative Adam Schiff as a “fact witness.” This is likely because of his staff’s, and possibly his, interactions and communications with the “whistleblowers” as well as Rep. Schiff not allowing witnesses to answer simple questions being asked by republican representatives.
Rep. Gaetz said, “The one mistake they’ve made — and I don’t know if they know this yet — Adam Schiff has now made himself a fact witness and we intend to call him [as a witness] in the Judiciary Committee. He said he’s like the Ken Starr, he’s the independent counsel.
Well, if that’s true and he’s able to do this secretive investigation, then we have not only a right but an obligation to call Adam Schiff as a witness and [Rep.] Doug Collins said that’s precisely what we are going to do in the House Judiciary Committee.”
Considering Representative Schiff’s inability to remember facts, as well as his history of lying to the American people, this could cause him to be the one in legal trouble. Rep. Gaetz added, “And then we’ll really see him squirm.” If Rep. Schiff decides to tell the truth, the case against President Trump falls apart; if Rep. Schiff decides to continue to lie, and does so as a fact witness, he could be guilty of perjury.
It is highly doubtful that a career politician is willing to lie to protect the hoax that he helped fabricate. His only fallback option for a career would be to continue to try to become a screenplay writer.
