Congressman Adam Schiff (D- CA) does not have a sister.
Normally, this would be about as controversial a statement as “Tuesday comes after Monday.” It’s a settled fact, and shouldn’t be debated on internet forums.
But as we’ve learned over the years, just because something is a settled fact doesn’t mean it’s not going to be debated on internet forums. And Adam Schiff’s sister, despite not existing, has become the topic of the moment all over the Trump-supporting fever swamp of blogs, message boards, and social media.
These notes were smuggled out of last year’s Annual Meeting of the FBI Secret Society, a shadowy organization acknowledged by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and confirmed by an informant to Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, as told to Fox News.
Ron Johnson tells us his “secret society” comments were based on an informant and the words used in a Strzok-Page text exchange. He acknowledges not knowing what they meant – and says the focus now on his committee is the Clinton email scandal.
If you’ve spent time on Twitter in the last 24 hours (and if you haven’t, congratulations), you’ve likely seen an odd hashtag blowing up political and Trump-supporter feeds: #ReleaseTheMemo.
Our country is about to be shaken to the core.
The release of this classified info will make Watergate look like peanuts. No wonder the Democrats freaked out over Trump's win. We were NEVER meant to see & hear the truth that would have been buried with Hillary!#ReleaseTheMemo
The democrats are lucky Republicans are honorable people. If we played the game like they do the memo would be all over CNN and everywhere else by now. Maybe it’s time we stoop to their level? #releasethememo
Like virtually everything related to the Republican role in investigating Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, it’s a mix of bad faith, conspiracy theorizing, memes, blaming the Clintons and Obama, and Russian bots. So many Russian bots.
