This is really unbelievable.
Nancy Pelosi just blatantly lied, even when corrected by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos who pressed her on Schiff’s outrageous “parody” re-telling of how the Trump-Ukraine call went down – you know, the one Schiff totally made up to make Trump look like the presidential equivalent of a mafia boss?
According to Pelosi, Schiff was “using the president’s own words.”
According to reality, this is completely untrue!
When Pelosi said Schiff used President Trump’s words verbatim in his dramatization of the phone call before Congress, Stephanopolous stepped in during the interview to correct her, pointing out that Schiff, did, in fact make up his “interpretation” of the phone call.
In response to this, Pelosi again insisted,
“He did not make it up.”
Watch Pelosi flat out lie during her interview on Good Morning America here:
Here's a longer clip from Pelosi's interview:
This is the Speaker of the House we are talking about, defending a colleague who lied to Congress about the contents of a phone call to get the President of the USA impeached, and doing it by piling on more lies!
The only silver lining in this is the reply tweets to Pelosi:
This Twitter user questioned if this is yet another "parody" by Dems...
Another hilariously commented on Schiff, along with child climate activist Greta Thunberg, who have both given dramatic performances at the expense of facts before governments in recent days...
America isn't buying it, Nancy Pelosi and House Dems!
ABC News has more to say on Pelosi's interview on the network:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that President Donald Trump is “scared” of the impeachment inquiry she launched last week centered on a whistleblower complaint alleging he pressuredUkraine to help investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and interfere in the 2020 presidential election.
“I think the president knows the argument that can be made against him, and he’s scared,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview in her ceremonial office in the U.S. Capitol, which aired Thursday morning on "Good Morning America."
“And so he’s trying to divert attention from that to where [he’s] standing in the way of legislation,” she said.
Shortly before Pelosi sat for the interview with Stephanopoulos, the president dismissed the inquiry with an expletive and tweeted advice to Democrats to choose “a better candidate” than Hillary Clinton in 2020.
"The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on [B***S***], which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306," Trump tweeted, referring to the electoral vote. "Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!"
Fox News had the following to say about Pelosi's defense of Schiff and the lies she had to say on TV about it:
After Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was criticized for reading a "parody" of President Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Congress, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended his actions Thursday and claimed he did not embellish any of the facts.
Schiff, who read the dramatization of Trump's call during acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire's hearing, improvised parts of the transcript for effect, and later tried to frame it as satire.
"I want the American people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. So yeah [the parody's] fair," Pelosi told "Good Morning America" on Thursday. "It’s sad, but it's using the president’s own words."
"Those weren't the president's words, it was an interpretation of the president's words. They're saying he made this up," ABC News' George Stephanopoulos countered.
"He did not make it up," she replied.
"Look, I want to tell you something -- when I took the oath of office to support and defend the Constitution as my colleagues have done as well, I did not say, I will do this as long as the Republicans can understand the Constitution.
The Daily Caller also noted:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff’s “dramatic interpretation” of President Donald Trump’s transcript with Ukraine was “the president’s own words” in an interview on ABC News Thursday.
Pelosi spoke to ABC News host George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” Thursday and discussed the now-released July 25 transcript of a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which sparked a formal impeachment inquiry into the president. Schiff received pushback after reading a fabricated version of the transcript during a House hearing last week.
Despite the reading being a “dramatic interpretation” of the actual transcript, as Stephanopoulos noted, Pelosi claimed Thursday that Schiff’s reading was the same as what Trump had said to the Ukrainian president.
“I want the American people to know what that phone call was about,” Pelosi said. “I want them to hear it. So, yeah, it’s fair. It’s sad but he was using the president’s own words.”
