Adam Schiff fact-checked on social media after claiming House speaker counts presidential electoral votes

Rep. Adam Schiff’s, D-Calif., knowledge of civics got called into question by social media platform X, formerly Twitter, on Tuesday after the lawmaker warned that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, would be the one counting the electoral votes in the next presidential election if he’s elected speaker of the House.

In the middle of Congress voting on whether Jordan would be the new speaker — following the ouster of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., from the role — Schiff warned that Jordan would be in a prominent position to sway next year’s presidential election if he received the gavel.

Schiff posted to X on Tuesday, “Today, Republicans may make Jim Jordan the Speaker. Jordan would preside over the counting of electoral votes in the next election. After he was deeply involved in trying to overturn the last one.”
