Democrat Impeachment Manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is a deranged, pathological liar who can’t be trusted to chair the House Intelligence Committee, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday.

“Schiff, personally, is obviously a deranged human being” who can’t distinguish fact from fiction, Gingrich told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham:

“Schiff, personally, is obviously a deranged human being. This is about Schiff. Schiff is a guy who’s a pathological liar. He seems to have no ability to distinguish between the truth and falsehood. He lied for two years and a half years about the Russian collusion – it all disintegrated. He looked like a fool, he learned nothing. He came back and lied, again and again.

“And, you’re right: here we are, at the end of this cycle, and he goes back and decides to lie again. I think that, somehow, have got to decide that Adam Schiff is a compulsive, uncontrollable liar – should be dealt with that way.”

“Listen, a healthy House would strip him of the Intelligence Committee. I mean, how could you ever expect the president, the CIA and others to share secrets with a person that’s this profoundly, publicly dishonest?

“And, I think this is a Schiff problem. We’ve learned over the last few months, this guy, literally, is a pathological liar.”

Asked to react to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) claim that Democrats’ use of the discredited “Steele Dossier” of unverifiable claims about President Donald Trump did not constitute election inference – because Democrats paid for it – Gingrich replied that he thinks the discredited dossier is “more believable” than Adam Schiff:

“The difference between the Steele Dossier and Adam Schiff is: the Steele Dossier was more believable.

“The real difference here is nothing Schiff does, in a factual world, would be taken seriously.”
