On Sunday, “Russia collusion” conspiracy theorist Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent out an email supporting far-left New Mexico state Rep. Melanie Stansbury in her quest for the open First District House seat in Congress vacated by Interior secretary Deb Haaland.
Schiff has long been spreading “fake news” regarding non-existent collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Russians, which was proven unequivocally false by the Robert Mueller report. He stands by his false claims meant to weaken the 45th President to this very day and was rewarded for his efforts spreading conspiracy theories by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats who appointed him chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
In the email, Schiff wrote that Stansbury was facing “Republican attacks” while claiming she is “a Democratic leader who will fight for both our democracy and progressive change.”
He claimed that the First District election is “the first big test for House Democrats in 2021” and that electing Stansbury is critical for keeping the Democrats’ majority.
Schiff then spewed a massive lie, writing, “She was born and raised in New Mexico, spending her whole life in the community she seeks to represent.” Actually, Stansbury has spent the better part of the last 20 years in Washington, D.C., working for Democrat politicians, not in any New Mexico “community” whatsoever.
He added, “As a New Mexico state representative, Melanie has fought to address the issues that have directly impacted her community: affordable food, clean water, shelter, economic security and justice, and climate change.”
Schiff is not wrong here about her support for “climate change” legislation. She voted for Gov. Lujan Grisham’s Green New Deal and sponsored costly anti-energy proposals to cripple the New Mexico energy industry by heavily investing in so-called “renewables” while also pushing for more regulations on oil and gas manufacturers, which make up around 40% of New Mexico’s state budget from taxes.
