‘They gave it to Schiff because he’s more willing to lie’: Kevin McCarthy on Democratic impeachment proceedings.
Kevin McCarthy thinks Adam Schiff is an extraordinary liar.
The House minority leader made that clear Friday morning in a discussion at the Washington Examiner Political Summit.
McCarthy gave his version of the Democratic leadership’s decision-making process on the impeachment process. In McCarthy’s telling, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has moved impeachment away from the House Judiciary Committee because of Chairman Jerry Nadler’s incompetence and moved it into the Intelligence Committee because of Chairman Schiff’s lack of honesty.
“They took it away from Nadler because they think Nadler’s inept,” McCarthy said. “They gave it to Schiff because he’s more willing to lie, and they put it in Intel so he can hide what’s going on.”
David Harsanyi made a similar argument in our magazine’s cover story this week.
