On Friday night, Laura Ingraham and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin slammed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, for his handing of their ongoing Russia investigation.
“If you’re dying to see California Congressman Adam Schiff, just turn on the television at any point in the day,” Ingraham began. “Any time. Any channel. Because the top ranking Dem on the House Intelligence Committee is the main proponent of the Russia collusion narrative.”
The Fox News host then played a montage of various soundbytes Schiff gave throughout the year to the press about his committee’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
“Here’s the problem. He’s like a carnival barker but there’s nothing under the tent!” Ingraham reacted. “There’s not a shred of evidence backing up his accusations. But that doesn’t stop him from playing the mainstream media like a fiddle.”
Fox News’ Ed Henry reported about Schiff’s tweetstorm from earlier and during Donald Trump Jr.‘s lengthy testimony to the House Intel Committee, which news about his testimony broke as it was happening, Schiff reportedly left the room various times, leaving both Henry and Ingraham to conclude that Schiff was leaking those stories to the press.
Ingraham then brought on Malkin, who joked that the congressman’s “loose lips” may “sink Schiff.”
“I would like to know how we say “Blabby Mcblabbermouth’ in Russian because this diversionary tactic, this tweetstorm I think is an indication that he’s quite worried that it will be traced back to him,” Malkin said. “It is interesting, isn’t it, Laura, that when Mr. Blabby McBlabbermouth of the House Intelligence Committee goes on the Collusion Narrative Network that they never ask him about all of these botched stories that clearly seem to point back to whoever’s leaking these false stories in the first place.”
Malkin added that Schiff has “fired more duds” than the North Korea missile program in the past year.
