Former Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy blasted Adam Schiff for his “parody” of the phone call between President Trump and the Ukraine president, going so far as to say that the Democrat was “making up” evidence.
“Adam Schiff has the worst senses of humor of anyone I’ve ever met,” Gowdy said during an interview. “So, he doesn’t need to try parody.”
The hearing, featured Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, who was called to testify about his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint alleging that Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family.
Schiff was called out during the hearing for his reading but later defended the statements.
On “The Story,” Gowdy said Schiff is essentially doing what he did during the Russia collusion allegations, although this time he is making up evidence.
“This is the same show; they said he had evidence of collusion. He’s not making that mistake this time. He’s just gonna make it up and he made it up on national television,” Gowdy said.
Trey Gowdy went on to say that he applauds any Republican or Democrat who calls out Adam Schiff for his actions, saying he would do the same.
“I applaud any Democrats to criticize, I would criticize a Republican for making stuff up in something as serious as this hearing,” Gowdy said.
Many other conservatives also blasted Schiff for his “parody.”
“Rather than reading from the actual transcript, he made up a new one,” Kayleigh McEnany tweeted.
