“You defended, promoted and even read into the congressional record the Steele dossier”
Russiagate proponent Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) got called out over the now completely deflated Steele Dossier on ‘The View’ of all places, this week.
Guest panelist Morgan Ortagus took direct aim at Schiff’s prior claims and noted his diminished credibility.

‘The View’ guest clashes with Adam Schiff over discredited dossier: ‘Your credibility is’ diminished
Guest co-host on “The View” Morgan Ortagus confronted Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Tuesday over his role in promoting the discredited anti-Trump Steele dossier.
During a segment in which Schiff was invited on the show to promote a new book, Ortagus accused him of potentially helping to spread Russian disinformation through his promotion of the dossier and suggested his credibility had been diminished because of his actions.
“You defended, promoted and even read into the congressional record the Steele dossier. We know last week the main source of the dossier was indicted by the FBI for lying about most of the key claims in that dossier. Do you have any reflections on your role in promoting this to the American people?” Ortagus asked Schiff.
Schiff avoided directly answering the question, and instead called on “whoever lied” to former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele or the FBI to be prosecuted.
Ortagus pressed Schiff further and landed a major punch at the end.
Jordan Davis writes at The Federalist:
Schiff then accused Ortagus and Republicans of trying to use the Steele dossier’s lack of credibility “as a smokescreen to somehow shield Donald Trump’s culpability.”
“None of that is undercut. None of that serious misconduct is in any way diminished by the fact that people lied to Christopher Steele,” Schiff said.
“No. I think just your credibility is,” Ortagus said.

Schiff deserves this and more. Remember all the times he claimed he had evidence?
Schiff claimed to have evidence of Trump-Russia collusion & read the Steele dossier into the Congressional record. US media treated him as a brave truth seeker when in reality he constantly lied & deceived.
How fitting that Schiff's toughest media scrutiny comes from The View: https://t.co/v1p109mTjb

This guy kept claiming collusion even after Mueller found no collusion, so I’m not sure he’s in a position to lecture others about lies related to this saga. https://t.co/C8bJHGwWTY

Look at what an amoral sociopath Adam Schiff is. He spent years promoting the Steele Dossier. He read it into the Congressional Record. He lied about the "smoking gun" evidence he saw (that Mueller never found). Watch how he worms his way around to avoid even an iota of mea culpa https://t.co/3C1V6dYhnc

Adam Schiff has done far more to divide America than Trump ever did or ever will.
He deserves scorn. Who knew he would finally find it on The View?
