McCarthy Threatens Adam Schiff Over Hunter Biden Laptop Fiasco
The mainstream media has essentially exhausted any options that they had remaining to ignore the scandalous story regarding Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell”, and the resurgence of the sordid tale is now making waves on Capitol Hill.
The laptop, which was discovered abandoned in a computer repair shop just ahead of the 2020 election, allegedly contained material that should have been incredibly deleterious to the Biden campaign, but was largely written off by the liberal-leaning infotainment industry. But now that the story has become an undeniable piece of the political puzzle in America, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is suggesting that those within the congressional intel community should be held accountable for their unwillingness to investigate its contents.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday, vowing to remove him from the panel if the GOP takes back the majority in this year’s midterm elections after Schiff wrongly alleged The Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop was a Russian “smear.”Advertisement - story continues below
“The Democrats have politicized our intelligence committee. You’ve watched it year after year since Adam Schiff has become chair,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters. “No, he doesn’t warn us about Ukraine or Afghanistan or what’s happening around the world. He tells you about politics.
“But the worst part of it is, you cannot trust what he tells you, that he lies to us,” he continued. “Just watch what has happened. Two years ago, Schiff stated the emails found from Hunter Biden were all [a] smear on Joe Biden [that] comes from the Kremlin. That’s what the head of the Intel [Committee] said.”
McCarthy then turned his tirade up to 11.
“Adam Schiff lied to us one more time,” the minority leader said Friday. “Why is he still chair of the committee? And why is he even on the committee? In a new Congress, if it’s a new majority, he will not be.Advertisement - story continues below
“You cannot make this committee political,” McCarthy went on. “You cannot use it as a position of a chairman to lie, and you should be focused on what the American people want you to be focused on around the world.”
Schiff has long been a frequent target of the GOP, and this latest lackadaisical revelation could just be the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak.
