On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing featuring testimony from acting DNI Joseph Maguire regarding a complaint by a whistle-blower who wasn’t present at the incident he was whistleblowing about. Opening the hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), put on an act to make people watching believe he was reading directly from the transcript of the call. Adam Schiff parody
But he decided to make up fictional dialog in an apparent effort to make it appear as though President Trump made statements that didn’t exist.
Byron York noted: “In the opening statement, Rep. Schiff makes up dialogue to represent what Trump said to Zelensky. A rough transcript of the president’s words exists and is available, but Schiff’s version is more dramatic.”

“This is the essence of what the president communicates,” Schiff said. “We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from YOU, though. And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good.”
“I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it,” he added.
“On this and on that. I’m gonna put you in touch with people and not just any people,” he said while trying to sound like Trump. “I’m going to put you with the attorney general of the United States, my attorney general Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him.”
“And I’m gonna put you in touch with Rudy, you’re gonna love him, trust me,” Schiff said. “You know what I’m asking, so I’m only going to say this a few more times, in a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I’ve asked.”
Here’s a video of Schiff’s shameless fictional retelling of the call:
The Ukraine Call Transcript was so damning that Adam Schiff had to completely rewrite it and make up quotes that weren’t in it.pic.twitter.com/bkB6RxLFjV

A transcript of the call can be read here.
Twitchy asked: “Take some liberties with the truth much, Congressman Schiff?”
That’s putting it mildly.
What else it’s not, it’s not the conversation that was in the chairman’s opening statement. While the chairman was speaking, I actually had someone text me, is he just making this up? And, yes, he was because sometimes fiction is better than the actual words of the text.
Well, luckily, the American public is smart and they have the transcript. They’ve read the conversation. They know when someone is just making it up.

Schiff claims it was a "parody"

I can't believe what I'm watching right now!
When confronted about making up a transcript, Adam Schiff countered "it was meant to be parody."
This is a hearing before the UNITED STATES CONGRESS, and Schiff uses parody as a mechanism to completely misconstrue @realDonaldTrump?!

Schiff only brought up the parody excuse because he is a liar. This is the same name man who said for two years that he had the evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia. Did you ever see that evidence, if you did you are the only one in the world who has seen it.
But of course, we all know the so-called “mainstream media” will never fact-check what he said.
