Pelosi Defends Schiff’s Fake Transcript Reading As ‘The President’s Own Words’

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) made up his own version of a White House phone call transcript and now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is claiming it as "the president's own words."

“He did not make it up,” Pelosi told ABC news when asked about Schiff’s false, self-admitted “parody” of the transcript of President Trump’s call to the President of the Ukraine that Schiff read into the record of the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Sept. 26th.

Pelosi explained her support for a transcript that was simply full of Schiff.  “I want the people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. It's fair, it's sad but using the president's own words,” she said.

“It's sad that he's using the president's own words. He didn't make it up,” she later added.

It doesn’t seem to matter to Nancy that, Schiff actually and admittedly - made it up. When questioned about his reading of the call transcript during the hearing, Schiff admitted it was "in part, a parody." 

Still, the transcript is a central piece of the Democrats push to impeach President Trump.

Help fight back against the media's impeachment crusade.
