Pelosi Tries to Rescue Schiff After He Made Up Trump Call: ‘He Did Not Make It Up’

Nancy Pelosi tried to throw a lifeline to Rep. Adam Schiff, insisting the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee “did not” make up a phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff undeniably fabricated quotes as he led off a hearing with acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire last week.

ABC News’ anchor George Stephanopoulus even confronted Schiff over the incident, playing the clip of the disgraceful display and stating, “That was you making up dialogue, putting it in the president’s mouth.”

The California Democrat has since claimed he was simply engaged in a parody.

When Stephanopoulus asked Pelosi if it was fair to lie about what Trump had said, the House Speaker gave it a thumbs up.

“I want the American people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. So yeah it’s fair,” she said. “It’s sad, but it’s using the president’s own words.”

Either she doesn’t know what a parody is or she’s simply willing to lie to get Schiff off the hook. Either option is eminently possible.

Stephanopoulus, to his credit, called her out saying, “Those weren’t the president’s words, it was an interpretation of the president’s words. They’re saying he made this up.”

“He did not make it up,” Pelosi doubled down.

Republicans have called for Schiff to step down following his utterly contemptible behavior, putting a fabricated phone conversation into the Congressional record.

“Rep. Adam Schiff totally made up my conversation with Ukraine President and read it to Congress and Millions,” the President tweeted on September 27th. “He must resign and be investigated. He has been doing this for two years. He is a sick man!”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Schiff for “lying to the American people for years.”

“He is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough,” McCarthy said before adding, “I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”

Pelosi’s full-throated defense, including efforts to say Schiff “did not make it up” when he very clearly made it up, is a sign that Democrats are all in on this tactic of fabricating quotes and facts.
