The Swamp has gotten so weird that congressional liberals are forced to parody the parodies that are their endless investigations into President Trump.
Such was the case with House Intelligence Committee Chairman and habitual grand-stander Adam Schiff. He began his opening statements during Thursday’s hearing by reciting a parody of the conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelinsky.
National Review’s Andrew McCarthy Schiff’s riff was “so absurd, it would not have made it into a Grade-C mob movie.”
“A telling decision by Schiff, a capable former prosecutor: If you have an extortionate conversation, you quote it. If you need to imagine it into something it isn’t, that means it is not an extortionate conversation,” McCarthy wrote Thursday in a piece for National Review.
McCarthy’s broader point is that the vapers congressional Democrats and the media are apparently getting over Trump’s conversation with Zelinsky didn’t get them into a lather in 2016 when the Obama administration was putting pressure on Ukraine for help in an investigation into political opponents.
