Trump Egregiously Misquotes Fox News To Attack Rival

At first, the tweet seemed like standard criticism from President Donald Trump.

“Congressman [Adam] Schiff omitted and distorted key facts,” he said, appearing to quote a Fox News report about the California Democrat, who has recently butted heads with the president.

“So, what else is new,” Trump added. “He is a total phony!”

“Congressman Schiff, he argues the Republican memo omitted and distorted key facts, that it was initially meant to meant to mislead the public,” Fox News’ Molly Line on Saturday said of the memo released earlier this month alleging FBI spying abuses. 

Democrats earlier on Saturday had released a memo of their own which refutes the GOP’s claims. As Line put it, “this Democratic memo was meant to be the rebuttal and was meant to show what was left out.”

Below is Schiff’s announcement of the new memo. In his tweet, he says the Republican version “omitted and distorted key facts in order to mislead the public.”

That Trump would so egregiously misquote a news report― from his favorite network no less― to attack a rival shows that he, not Schiff, is the one omitting and distorting key facts.
