    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that he believes President Trump and his lawyers are "terrified" at the prospect of what former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort could tell prosecutors as part of a new cooperation agreement. "They may think they know what Manafort has to say because he was part of that joint defense agreement, but they have to know that he may not have told them the full truth," Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "They’re terrified of what he has to say," he continued. "I’m surprised that we...

    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said President Trump's tweet Wednesday calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the federal Russia investigation "an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight."

    Looks like Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrats will have to find a way to vote no on Brett Kavanaugh with only a few hundred thousand pages of documents. That’s the gist of a letter to Schumer from Senate Judiciary chair Chuck Grassley, one whose politeness belies the real message — pound sand.

    During a statement on Monday, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the White House’s statement that President Trump is looking to revoke former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance as well as examining the clearances of several other former officials is “exactly what you see in authoritarian regimes.” Schiff said, “Today’s action, suggesting that we will punish critics of the president by stripping them of their security clearance, that is not what you see in a democracy. That is exactly what you see in authoritarian regimes.” He added that the move is a “despicable action…to...

    Former Secret Service official Dan Bongino went off on fraudster, liar Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) today following the latest release of FISA memos this weekend that prove the Obama Deep State began spying on the Donald Trump campaign based on a fraudulent document paid for by Hillary, the DNC and the Obama FBI.

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Sunday that President Trump is acting as if he has been "compromised" by the Russians, floating once again the notion that Moscow could have damaging information on the U.S. leader. "I certainly think he’s acting like someone who’s compromised, and it may very well be that he is compromised or it may very well be that he believes that he’s compromised, that the Russians have information on him," Schiff said on ABC's "This Week." Trump came under intense bipartisan scrutiny last week after a now-controversial joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 9, 2018 | Diana Stancy Correll
    Critics of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, connected Kavanaugh’s selection to the ongoing Russia investigation, citing an article Kavanaugh wrote that claimed presidents should not be tied up in lawsuits and probes and warning that the commander in chief might be looking for a way to protect himself in a legal challenge. In a 2009 Minnesota Law Review article, Kavanaugh claimed that presidents should not be caught up in “time-consuming and distracting” lawsuits and investigations. He argued that they “would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis.” “In choosing Brett...

    GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy unloaded on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff Thursday, slamming the leading Democrat’s handling of the Russia probe and saying he’s had “a terrible last couple of years.” Gowdy was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on Schiff’s recent rhetoric where he labeled the Republican lawmaker as one of the “four horsemen of the apocalypse” in regard to obtaining information from the DOJ regarding the Russia probe.“Let me tell you this about Adam.

    The House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff (Calif.), said Sunday it was "deeply disturbing" that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) received classified information about Hillary Clinton's emails from FBI field agents in 2016. "This is the first that we've heard about it, and it is deeply disturbing because if this was shared by New York field agents with Devin Nunes, was it also shared with Rudy Giuliani? Or did Devin Nunes do something, which we have seen subsequently, which is coordinated with the Trump team?" Schiff said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Was this information shared by...

    Leaker, liar and ranking member of the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff (D-CA) has some explaining to do. Carter Page says his interview with the FBI in March of 2016, before the Russia dossier was compiled, had nothing to do with Russian collusion or the Trump campaign, rather he was questioned about events that transpired in 2013 in a case where he was a witness in support of the FBI, reports Paul Sperry.

    Video at link. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway mocked Rep Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) Tuesday on Fox News, saying he "leaves the house every morning with his earpiece" by going on TV often while slamming Democrats for having "no message" heading into the 2018 midterm elections. "They live on TV, especially Schiff and you know it," Conway told "Fox & Friends." "This guy leaves the house every morning with his earpiece and his congressional button, and he does a lot more with the earpiece," she added. The Republican National Committee released research on Feb. 28 showing that Schiff had conducted 227...

    Boy, the Democrat Party must be in tough shape if they are marching "useless" Adam Schiff, John Brennan and James Clapper out to the Obamabot/Clintonite media to provide cover for the Obama/Clinton, low life, DOJ & FBI. Putting these three buffoons in the public face will only be a major negative for the Democrat Party when the day is done. Nothing, nothing, is going to prevent the American public from soon learning that the master chef of this farce investigation is none other then ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama.

    New York radio personality Randy Credico said Assange instructed him to communicate to Schiff that he was prepared to interview with the California Democrat. Credico said that Assange was interested in speaking to Schiff to show “there is no collusion," a reference to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Schiff has been vocal about his belief that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election. Schiff’s office responded... “Our committee would be willing to interview Julian Assange when he is in U.S. custody, not before,” in a statement Friday.

    Rep. Adam Schiff says the idea that the Trump campaign was spied on by the Justice Department is “nonsense.” “The most I can tell you, Chuck, is that this claim by the president, the suggestion by [Rudy] Giuliani that there is a political spy embedded in the Trump campaign is nonsense,” Mr. Schiff told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “And you hear it in the same terms that Trump often speaks, which is ‘people are saying,’ or ‘I’m hearing,’ or ‘we’re being told.’ That’s another way of saying, ‘This is patently untrue, but we would like to spread...

    Rep. Adam Schiff said Tuesday that the Chinese business deal linked to President Trump’s properties was a violation of the Emoluments Clause. “I certainly view this as a violation of the Emoluments Clause,” Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, said on CNN. Mr. Trump tweeted on Sunday that he wanted federal officials to help get the Chinese phone company ZTE back into business after U.S. penalties threatened to shut the business down, according to The Hill. The Huffington Post reported that it was only 72 hours later that a Chinese company offered a $500 million loan to an Indonesia construction project associated...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) on Sunday said it was potentially concerning U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis would express skepticism about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. "I can understand the judge asking certain of these questions, although some seem to be non-germane," Schiff said on CNN's "State of the Union." Ellis questioned whether investigators’ mandate covered charges of tax and bank fraud against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, even though they are unrelated to the 2016 election, the Wall Street Journal reported. Ellis suggested Mueller’s team was simply trying to put pressure on Manafort "to sing" and reveal information...
