Politico, hardly a right-wing site, reports that Adam Schiff “may have mischaracterized Parnas evidence,” and by “may have mischaracterized” they mean, of course, “lied his tuchus off” about it.
In a letter Schiff sent to Jerrold Nalder summarizing some of the Lev Parnas “evidence,” he included a redacted text message from Parnas to Rudy Giuliani referring to trying to set up a meeting with “Mr. Z,” to support the claim that he was trying to arrange a meeting with Ukrainian President Zelensky to pressure him to investigate the Bidens. But an unredacted version of the text exchange suggests that they were actually referring to a meeting with Burisma energy company founder Mykola Zlochevsky, whom Giuliani refers to as “Mr. Z.” That makes much more sense in the context of the text exchange (hiring practices at Burisma.) But with the redactions, we weren't supposed to see that.
Democrats are trying to pass it off as a simple mistake, rather than a deliberate attempt to mislead. If so, then I guess it will have to be added to all the other “mistakes” made in the FBI investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s campaign – those innocent mistakes made without any partisan intent that just coincidentally and miraculously, by random chance, always land on the side of harming Republicans and helping Democrats. As I’ve said before, it’s like flipping a coin 500 times and every time, having it land standing up on edge.
