FNC's Tucker Carlson teases Rep. Adam Schiff for appearing on the Russia Today news channel several years ago:
TUCKER CARLSON: We've got some stunning news for you about the ongoing Russia investigation. News that will challenge everything you thought you knew about this story.
Yesterday, we showed you the terrifying extent to which Vladimir Putin's sinister tendrils have encircled the American body politic, crushing the very life from this Republic. Russian agents are so intent on undermining our democracy, they've taken to promoting our own bill or rights back to us. The Second Amendment, specifically.
I will admit, we're not exactly sure how that's bad, but Adam Schiff has assured us that it is. And because Schiff is a prominent member of Congress, and often appears on cable news, we believe him.
Now tonight, we've learned that the foreign subversion goes even deeper than that. The Russian conspiracy is so subtle, and so craft, such a bewildering Slavic hall of mirrors, that the very people warning us about Russia, are in fact key players in the Russian conspiracy. The leaders of the witch hunt... are witches.
Sound impossible? Listen to this. Last year, the director of national intelligence released the definitive report on Russian propaganda efforts in this country. The main focus of that report was the Russian cable channel RT America, which is funded and controlled by the Putin government. In the words of our intelligence community, RT engages in, 'Anti-U.S. messaging likely aimed at undermining viewers trust in U.S. democratic procedures."
Our government considers RT so dangerous that the channel has been forced to register as a foreign agent. RT employees who fail to register could face prison time. No outlet in this country has ever been forced to do that. RT is a sinister place, everybody says so. So who would go on a channel like that? one whose sole agenda is to discredit and destroy the American experiment? Well, none other than Adam Schiff of Burbank, California. You know him as Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, the man leading the charge against Vladimir Putin's propaganda machine, and yet, Adam Schiff was part of that machine. Seriously.
