Intel Committee Member Claims Schiff’s ‘Parody’ of Trump Phone Call Was Made up to ‘Fit His Narrative’

A Republican congressman on the House Intelligence Committee blasted committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for his “parody” of President Donald Trump‘s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

During a Thursday interview with Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime,” Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) was asked by host Harris Faulkner for his “highlights” from the House Intelligence Committee’s hearing the same day.

Wenstrup said that Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire had “nothing but integrity” when he went into the hearing before blasting Schiff’s opening remarks, saying that the House Intelligence chairman was “trying to tell” Americans a “different conversation” than that of what actually occurred between Trump and Zelenskyy.

The Ohio Republican then blasted Schiff as making up the conversation to “fit his narrative.”

“We start off the hearing with Adam Schiff pretending, I guess — he called it ‘parody’ later when he was called out on it — but he’s trying to tell the American people a different conversation than what actually took place between our president and the president of the Ukraine. He made this up to fit his narrative.”

“We have the transcript,” added Wenstrup. “That’s not what was said at all.”

As IJR previously reported, the California Democrat was called out for his “more dramatic” version of the phone call between the U.S. and Ukranian presidents during his opening remarks at the hearing.

Schiff later claimed that his opening remarks were “part in parody” of the conversation between Trump and Zelenskyy.

The California congressman’s remarks got him torched on Twitter, with Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) calling the “improvised dialogue” done by Schiff in his opening statement “disturbing and outrageous.”

“We should focus on the facts,” the New York Republican added.

“Word around the REAL news media sites is the whistleblower did NOT hear what was said; only that which was told to him second or third handed. It’s also being reported that the whistleblower had help writing his/her report by Leftist politicians AND the MSM filled in some of the blanks with more. This is REALLY beginning to stink (because it has DemocRATic fingerprints all over it).” Confused James As more details came out, everything that you wrote above has been proved incorrect. Too bad that you don’t listen to real “REAL” news sites and can’t think critically. If you… Read more »

Shifty is an out and out liar…is he really a man?…he is nothing g more than a GOSSIP spreading the narrative he wishes were true.
I hope Trump Sue’s his little nuts off.


It has to be made up. Neither the leaker nor Schiff actually heard what was said.

It would be fitting if someone came forward accusing Schiff of soliciting underage prostitutes. Launch the investigations!!!! We need no proof!
