After all his claims that turned out to be “exactly wrong,” how can senators be expected to believe Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) claims during the Senate impeachment trials, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Wednesday.

Rep. Jordan tweeted video of his comments to reporters following Impeachment Manager Schiff’s two-plus hours of allegations against President Donald Trump at the trial:

Schiff:

1.      "More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion

2.      Nunes memo was false

3.      FISA process was fine

4.      The "Whistleblower" would testify

5.      "We haven't spoken... with the 'Whistleblower'"

6.      Parodied @POTUS' call

7.      "Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky

But today we're supposed to trust him?

In his press briefing, Rep. Jordan explained why each of Schiff’s seven claims proved to be “exactly wrong” – and asked them how “We’re supposed to believe Adam Schiff today – everything he’s saying?”

Rep. Jordan also noted an instance where Rep. Schiff made an allegation against Pres. Trump, but failed to mention that it is based on a “presumption”:

“But, today we're supposed to believe him?

“He just talked for two hours and 15 minutes, and we’re supposed to believe everything he’s said today. In spite of that history - where seven important things he had exactly wrong.

“So, yeah, when he talks about (Ambassador) Sondland, he doesn’t tell you that was all presumption. Mr. Sondland said that, when Congressman Turner asked him, under oath, at the hearing.

“So, that’s the kind of game that they’re playing here, and, again, I think that the American people see through it all.”
