Far-left House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff lied during the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday.
According to the Gateway Pundit, "Schiff claimed during the meeting that former and now fired FBI Director James Comey did not circumvent Congress when he created the bogus Trump-Russia investigation in 2016."
New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik made sure to set the record straight by responding to a Schiff with a video of fired FBI director James Comey's own words.

.@RepAdamSchiff didn’t believe me today when I told him Comey circumvented Congress by opening an investigation into the Trump campaign. Maybe he’ll change his mind once he hears it straight from Comey’s mouth? WATCH ?? pic.twitter.com/xHtmGZTERe— Rep. Elise Stefanik (@RepStefanik) June 12, 2019
During this same hearing, Republican Representative Devin Nunes made sure to call out Democratic leadership about their many false claims made about the Mueller report.
“The entire scheme has now imploded and the collusion accusation has been exposed as a hoax,” Nunes started. “One would think the Democrats would simply apologize and get back to lawmaking and oversight. But it’s clear they couldn’t stop this grotesque spectacle even if they wanted to. After years of false accusations and McCarthyite smears, the collusion hoax now defines the Democratic Party. The hoax is what they have in place of a governing philosophy or a constructive vision for our country.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Nunes pointed out five examples in the “Mueller dossier,” as he calls it, that contradicted some of the major claims made by Democrats in the media, including the dubious claim that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was in Prague to reward Russians for meddling in the election. Media outlets reported the story but were unable to corroborate it. The Washington Post even sent reporters to every hotel to see if Cohen had registered but came up empty (they predictably neglected to report this information).
Nunes also said in his opening statements that the Mueller report found “No evidence that [former Trump campaign aide] Carter Page conspired with Russians,” and didn’t even mention the claim that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort visited Wikileaks founder Julian Assange multiple times in London somehow without signing into the embassy.
Further, Nunes noted the Mueller report contained no mention of alleged “secret communications between a Trump Tower computer server” and a state-owned Russian bank (in reality, the server wasn’t in Trump Tower or controlled by the Trump Organization). Finally, Nunes included the claim that former NRA lawyer Cleta Mitchell raised concerns about the group’s “ties to Russia,” yet Mitchell was not an attorney for the organization at the time and the only evidence we have of this claim is from Glenn Simpson, the founder of the Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which paid for the infamous dossier used to make all these dubious claims against Trump.
