During an appearance on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes claimed information that Chairman Adam Schiff included in the official intelligence report was not accurate.
Nunes, speaking on “Fox & Friends” on Saturday morning, said his personal phone records do not match what Schiff and the Democratic majority put into the report.
In the report, Schiff made it appear like Nunes was regularly speaking with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and his associate Lev Parnas.
Nunes said this was not the case as he only had one call per month, in April and May. The ranking member said he only had one call with a female associated with Parnas in that same time.

Some people online suggested Schiff was just writing his own narrative at this point and was including (or excluding) any evidence to further the point. This latest development could be enough to convince Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham that he needs to subpoena Schiff to testify before his committee.
Here’s how some other people online responded via Twitchy:
Evidence is a beautiful thing. This is going to go splendidly for Nunes.
I just want to see Schiff squirm. The wanna-be Hollywood script writer (Schiff) just wrote a very bad script.

Adam Schiff, a failed Hollywood screenwriter, does have rather proven flair for fiction. . .

Shifty Schiff makes the narrative.
No questions allowed.

This could get interesting.

Incredible and not really surprising. Schiff is getting careless.

So @RepAdamSchiff LIED again. No wonder he is too scared to show up for the hearing and is sending a staffer.
