Adam Schiff is the Republican scapegoat during the impeachment inquiry taking place right now in D.C., and no matter how by-the-book Schiff is, the GOP simply will not stop with the constant attacks on Schiff’s character and service to this country. Before the constant attacks, Schiff wasn’t even that well-known, but with Trump’s help, every illiterate hillbilly now nows Adam’s name.
Now, Schiff has gotten his turn to fire back at the Republicans who are making his life a living hell via the LIVE impeachment proceedings happening now. Schiff just shut Jim Jordan down after Jordan flat-out lied.
Jim Jordan tries to claim that Schiff and his staff are the only member of Congress who knows the identity of the whistleblower and Schiff answers with, "…as the gentleman knows, that's a false statement, I do not know the identity of the whistleblower." #ImpeachmentHearings

Jordan said to Schiff:
“Do you anticipate when we might vote on the ability to have the whistleblower in front of us. something you, out of the 435 members of Congress, you’re the only member who knows who that individual is and your staff is the only staff of any member of Congress who has had a chance to talk with that individual.”
Schiff immediately shot back at Jordan, saying:
“As the gentleman knows, that’s a false statement. I do not know the identity of the whistle-blower and I’m determined to make sure that identity is protected.”
Thank you, Schiff:
(To Jim Jordan)
“As the gentleman knows, that’s a false statement.”
“Don’t lie, butt munch. And put on a jacket.”

Who do these people think they are that they can just make up lies on the house floor, during an official impeachment hearing. This is a historic moment in time that will be talked about for centuries to come, so for these weasels to try to spin the narrative is just plain crooked.
Kind of like doing nothing when you know college kids are being molested and raped by their school doctor..
Check out the testy exchange below:
Jordan: Of the 435 members of Congress, you are the only member who knows [who the whistleblower is].
Schiff: First, as the gentleman knows, that's a false statement: I do not know the identity of the whistleblower.pic.twitter.com/v4b9g5Dexy
