Is Adam Schiff a Russian agent? According to a new report he was pranked by a Russian prankster offering nudes of Donald Trump.
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was pranked last year by Russian comedians who offered nude photos of President Trump.
Schiff thought he had been speaking with Ukrainian politician Andriy Parubiy, who offered potentially explosive information about Trump’s visit to Russia during the Miss Universe pageant in 2013, The Atlantic reported.
Schiff cautioned the man that “our Russian friends” could be eavesdropping on the call, and told him not to share anything he wouldn’t want them to hear.
But the man went on to say that the Russians had “pictures of naked Trump” and Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to know that “all those compromising materials will never be released if Trump will cancel all Russian sanctions.”
Schiff then told the man that his office would work with FBI to figure out “how we can obtain copies.”
The California Democrat, however, had actually been speaking with Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, two Russian pranksters known as Vovan and Lexus.
That wasn’t all….
The Daily Mail reported Tuesday that a member of Schiff’s staff continued correspondence with the pranksters via email, seeking the damaging material on Trump.
The pranksters said they would transfer the material to Schiff through the Ukrainian embassy in Washington, D.C.
This is the ranking member of the house intelligence committee. This is the guy we have in charge of making sure that our democracy wasn’t subverted by foreign or domestic threats. By Schiff’s own standards he is a Russian agent for just talking to a Russian and I really hope Trump tweets out this story.
