Adam Schiff Caught on Cam

Adam Schiff Caught on Cam

Crooked Congressman Adam Schiff was caught on camera proving just how dumb and overzealous he is in his hatred of former President Donald Trump.

Schiff, who is ironically the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, appeared on “The View” to talk about his favorite subject: Donald Trump. He clearly has an unnatural obsession with the former president, and the slip-up he made in his interview just serves to further prove that.

Speaking on “The View,” Adam Schiff said that Donald Trump incited an “erection.”


His so-called slip-up was made after guest host Morgan Ortagus asked Schiff about his support for the obviously false Steele dossier.

Interview & Context

“You defended, promoted, you even read into the Congressional Record the Steele dossier,” Ortagus said. “And we know last week the main source of the dossier was indicted by the FBI for lying about most of the key claims in that dossier. Do you have any reflections on your role in promoting this to the American people?”

Of course, Schiff tried to avoid blame for his role in pushing a blatant lie, saying “we couldn’t have known” that former British spy Christopher Steele’s sources were lying.

Surprisingly, despite “The View” being a left-biased show, Ortagus continued to push the issue, arguing that Schiff “may have helped spread Russian disinformation yourself for years by promoting” the dossier.

“Well, I completely disagree with your premise,” he responded. “It’s one thing to say allegations should be investigated, and they were. It’s another thing to say that we should have foreseen in advance that some people were lying to Christopher Steele, which is impossible, of course, to do.”

“But let’s not use that as a smokescreen to somehow shield Donald Trump’s culpability for inviting Russia to help him in the election, which they did, for trying to coerce Ukraine into helping him in the next election, which he did, into inciting an erection…,” Schiff continued, catching himself immediately and adding “insurrection” before continuing his statement.


This is the second time that Schiff has made this “mistake.” In January, he accused House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) of inciting an “erection.”

Twitter Reactions

Conservatives flocked to Twitter to laugh at Schiff’s “gaffe.”

“Even a minor pressing from – off all places! – The View has Schiff sucking for air and making Freudian slips about ‘erections,’” wrote Mike Cernovich, a political commentator.

“Is it my imagination or did Adam Schiff just say Trump excited his erection? If so, it would be the first honest thing Schiff ever said,” wrote “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams.
