GOP Representative Matt Gaetz recently reminded Adam Schiff that he was pranked into trying to get dirt from Ukraine on President Trump.

“So, you have recordings of both [Russian journalist Ksenia] Sobchak and [Russian model and singer Olga] Buzova where they’re discussing the compromising material on Mr. Trump?” Schiff asked the callers posing as Parubiy.
“Absolutely,” one of the pranksters responded.
“Well obviously we would welcome a chance to get copies of those recordings,” Schiff said later in the call after he and the fake “Parubiy” go on to discuss more details of the bogus allegations.
The Russian radio hosts, Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetzov and Alexey “Lexus” Stolyarov, who have close ties to the Kremlin, told Schiff that the Kremlin had naked photos of Trump and that “Parubiy” could provide audio of Sobchak and Buzova discussing the photos. They also told Schiff that former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn had met with another Russian to talk about how to prevent the photos from going public.
Schiff’s team responded that they cleared the call with the proper authorities and informed authorities immediately following the call.
