Now that the inspector general report on FISA abuse has vindicated the work of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and thoroughly debunked the fraudulent conspiracy theories and smears of the current chairman Adam Schiff, many conservatives are crying out for retribution.
At the very least, Schiff should face an ethics complaint for lying in his memo, American Commitment President Phil Kerpen says.
Nunes discovered the egregious FBI misconduct that underlay the entire Russia hoax and when he exposed it he was smeared and maligned and subject to a vexatious ethics investigation. And Schiff orchestrated the hit, knowing Nunes was telling the truth.

In February of 2018, both Republicans and Democrats released memos about the Department of Justice’s efforts to secure a warrant to wiretap Carter Page. As even the Washington Post has been forced to admit, the IG report’s conclusions corroborated the claims made in the Nunes memo, while exposing the Schiff memo as a massive fraud “riddled with lies and false statements,” as Mollie Hemingway reported at the Federalist.
Will Chamberlain, the Editor-in-Chief of Human Events, posted a thread on Twitter containing major sections of Schiff’s “response” FISA Memo that turned out to be false.

But in 2018, with Schiff leading the charge, Nunes was maligned, ridiculed and subjected to a smear campaign for the crime of being right about the counterintelligence malfeasance that was going on in the FBI.
The anti-Trump media jumped on Schiff’s bogus bandwagon and published stories about how the Republicans were concocting “conspiracy theories” and destroying the nation’s law enforcement agencies.
Twitter Legal Eagle “Techno Fog” reminded followers of some of the worst offenders in a long Twitter thread:
Let's keep it going.@JonahDispatch
The FISA renewals were approved by the FISC Judges "after reviewing intelligence collected from Page surveillance that had nothing to do with the Steele dossier"

Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) reminded followers how Democrats and their media allies attacked the Grassley-Graham criminal referral of one of the leading Russia Hoax villains, former British spy Christopher Steele:
Criticism of the Grassley-Graham criminal referral of Christopher Steele hasn’t aged well. Let’s do a look-back at how media and commentators received the referral in January 2018. https://t.co/8xyIxiMDew

The Washington Free Beacon and Grabien have created Mash-ups of Democrats and the media lying about the FBI’s conduct.
Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Jim Himes, and the rest of the Democrats knowingly lied to the American people repeatedly and with gusto.
And their media allies aided and abetted their obstruction of justice every damn step of the way.
Never forget that. https://t.co/x31AV30vQP

It's not just that these "journalists" were blatantly lying. It's how smug they are while lying and how much they mock those who pushed back on their false and republic-threatening propaganda. STUNNING to watch. There must be accountability. https://t.co/ff37r8yc3F

Since his now legendary Russia collusion hoax lies, Schiff has also been caught lying about meeting with the so-called “whistleblower,” fabricated the text of a presidential phone call, and released phone records of the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani; journalist John Solomon; and Rep. Nunes, among others.
As Hemingway noted, there simply must be accountability from Schiff and other Democrats in the Congress, as well as their corrupt media shills who put the President and his allies through years of trauma based on malicious lies.
