Pelosi Falsely Says Adam Schiff’s Interpretation Of Ukraine Transcript Was ‘The President’s Own Words’

pelosi abortion first again democrats spending deal budget equalityHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed that 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 exact 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.”

Pelosi doubled down on the egregious claim after Stephanopoulos pushed back. Schiff himself said that the reading was “parody” following outrage from Republicans.

“He did not make it up,” Pelosi continued. “And look, I want to tell you something. When I took the oath of office to defend the constitution, as my colleagues have done, I did not say, ‘I will do this as long as the Republicans can understand the constitution.’”

“The fact they’re loyal to Trump and not to the constitution is not going to slow down or impair our ability to keep the Republic.”

Trump hit back at the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday after the fabricated readingtweeting that he “should resign” for “fraudulently fabricating a statement of the President of the United States and reading it to Congress.”

California Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy signed onto a resolution Wednesday that aims to censor Schiff for the reading.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years,” McCarthy wrote in a tweet. “Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough. I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”

The transcript is the basis of an August whistleblower complaint that accused Trump of asking Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Her words are meaningless. Her voice sounds weak and she speaks with no sense of conviction. I doubt she believes what comes out of her mouth. She no longer has control of her party, and she knows it. So, she speaks in hushed tones as if she really doesn’t want anyone to hear her, lest they believe her nonsense. She has lost what little credibility that she may have had, which was never much to begin with. She is vainly trying to cover the lies of others while attempting to paint the President as a criminal, and she knows none of it is true.

Well, she’s a feeble minded idiot… but a liar to boot.

Doris Lauter

Pelosi is a liar. If she didn’t read the transcript, then maybe she should have someone read it to her that understands English.

Geraldine Slaght

The Speaker And Schiff, are liars and should be expelled from the House of Reps.

Neil Schmidt

Pelosi again proves how she can lie. It never seems to stop, and the MSM never calls her on such lies. The old woman should have retired long ago, yet the media and her followers hang on every word she utters. One thing for sure: you can tell when Nasty lies: all she has to do is open her mouth. Not to be surprised: she’s from Commiefornia, as is Adam Schiff, Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris. Thank God I moved from there six months ago.

Liar! I fear the half the population are seeing the news on CNN, NBC, etc. They present it as fact.

Enough is enough, there need to be legal consequences and prosecutorial measures taken for this ongoing seditious coup.

I read the transcript from The White House e-mail I get, verbatim. I also have heard Pelosi’s “mumbled” words (that is how she talks to mislead her listeners), and they are definitely not the same. Her words were intentionally mumbled to confuse, and not necessarily lies. This is her style when she talks that reveal half truths. Perhaps it is her age, but I don’t think she is “crazy” as one reader portraits her. Now, who is really following the constitution and who is not….. I have always marveled at how politicians take the public as being dumb, uneducated and not having knowledge of the Constitution. Politicians need to know that we also read, follow the news, and know how to distinguish between the truths from lies.

They’re all defending the lies because it fits their narrative. There’s nothing new here. The report was so benign they had to fabricate or they probably would have been laughed off of TV, so Schiff decided to punch it up a bit. Then the rest of the little soldiers just stepped right in line as usual. Ole Nancy is hanging on to her cushy job by a thread, and will say ANYTHING to stay!! AOC is nipping at her heels and she knows it. It’s going to get much worse between now and the election. “ Buckle your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride”! When President Trump wins in 2020, no telling what they’re going to do!! Vote Trump 2020, I can’t imagine what these yahoos will do to our dear country if they win the presidency next year. Our very way of life is at stake.… Read more »

Liar,Liar, pants on fire!!! Nasty Pelosi does it again,

Bob h

Now Pelosi is blatantly LYING !!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

carol

Democrats have lied to the American people for years so this isn’t news! Just more lies! I’m in awe, however, at how many of my fellow citizens lap up these lies and when you try to explain facts, those same useful idiots claim the lies are truth while the facts are false! That’s the biggest problem in our country…too many believe lies and dismiss the true facts!

Mark Jebe

Impeachment is their Hail Mary. If Barr gets enough time he’ll uncover everything the Obama Administration was doing from 2014 onward, all the missing billions and domestic spying and false declarations and attempted entrapment. Obama picked Biden to be his VP because he knew Biden was dirty. He picked Clinton to be his Sec State because he knew she was dirty. He let them get dirty on a huge scale to make sure they wouldn’t talk. Then he went about destroying the country, using the CIA and FBI and DOJ, giving away billions in foreign aid to countries that hate us and institutions that spirited it away to–where? We still don’t know, but Biden’s family and Clinton’s foundation made lots of money. Meanwhile Susan Rice and Loretta Lynch and Brennan and Comey covered up everything, and still are. Give Barr enough time and he’ll eventually get to Obama. They can’t… Read more »

Nobody should expect truth from the treasonous lying Democraps.

Linda

She needs to resign. She is not able to do her job. Time for her to leave the government, Her brain I scrambled!

Age and grace work together only when the mind is filled with love, honesty and humility. Sadly too few age with grace and are left to face the reality that money, power, status, will not add a minute longer to life’s curtain falling on a performance no one will remember.
