Rep. Adam Schiff (D-MA) claims to have very powerful evidence regarding former President Donald Trump and January 6 —but this is Schiff we’re talking about here. Shifty Schiff made his case on ABC’s This Week.
“The evidence is very powerful that Donald Trump … began telling this big lie even before the elections, that he was saying that any ballots counted after Election Day were going to be inherently suspect,” Schiff said.
“That lie continued after the election and ultimately led to this mob assembling and attacking the Capitol,” he continued.
“But I think what’s important, again, is the broad context of all of this, the knowledge prior to Jan. 6, that there were going to be violent white nationalist groups, assembling along with others on that mall,” Schiff said, according to The Hill. “And the decision by the president nonetheless to incite that mob and do nothing while that attack was taking place.”

Earlier this month, Schiff claimed there have already been a number of “bombshells” —but according to recent polling, Americans are starting to see former President Trump as less responsible for Jan 6, not more. According to CNN and a recent NBC News poll, “A majority of Americans (55%) now believe that Trump was either not or only partially responsible for the rioters who overtook the Capitol…That’s up from 47% in January 2021.”

“They’ve seen a number of bombshells already. There is a great deal they haven’t seen. But, perhaps most important is the public hasn’t seen it woven together, how one thing led to another.” pic.twitter.com/kdOqMAfBx3
