Democrats are the party of fake news.
And this time, it’s finally coming back to haunt them.
This top congressional Democrat is going to have to resign after this Obama deep state scandal blew his career apart.
Democrats spent years believing absurd conspiracy theories about President Trump.
A majority of Democrats even believe that the Russians changed vote tallies in swing states in order to deliver Trump a victory over Hillary Clinton – something which has been proven to be completely bogus.
And after finally getting over the shock that Trump had defeated their coronated successor to Barack Obama, Democrats instead began to focus on constructing an elaborate conspiracy regarding just how Trump could have won.
To that end, the Trump-Russian conspiracy theory was born, which alleged that the President’s campaign had colluded with the Russian government in order to steal the election away from Clinton.
Plenty of Democrats latched onto the conspiracy, but none more than Adam Schiff were truer believers.
Schiff had spent two years hopping from TV outlet to TV outlet proclaiming that the collusion between Donald Trump and the Kremlin was in fact truth.
Schiff staked his entire career on it, and everything came crashing down when Robert Mueller’s investigation ultimately exonerated Trump of any coordination or collusion with the Russian government.
And now, Schiff may have to resign after betting everything on Mueller’s investigation and losing it all.
Politico reports, “The House Intelligence Committee devolved into bitter infighting Thursday, as all nine Republicans demanded Chairman Adam Schiff resign his post and the California Democrat responded with a blistering account of “evidence of collusion” between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.”
“We have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties,” said Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas).
That lack of faith is well-founded.
Schiff was so fixated on his hatred of President Trump that he was unwilling or unable to see the holes in his own conspiracy theory.
Now, President Trump is also weighing in on the calls for Schiff to step aside.
“Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!” the President tweeted on Thursday.
Not only does Trump think Schiff should lose his committee chairmanship, but he should leave Congress altogether.
And it isn’t hard to believe why.
Schiff spent years personally attacking Trump and calling him a traitor to this country.
And for two years, Schiff claimed that Trump was illegally elected to the office of President, and that he should even be impeached from office.
And it was all built upon a lie.
Schiff bet it all on uncovering proof that Trump would be indicted or otherwise taken down by Mueller.
And he couldn’t have been more wrong.
The calls for his resignation are only growing as more and more realize how much of a fraud he really is.
It may be only a matter of time until those calls become reality.
