    Arguably the most important power at stake in Tuesday’s election was Congressional oversight, and the most important change may be Adam Schiff at the House Intelligence Committee. The Democrat says his top priority is re-opening the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but more important may be his intention to stop investigating how the FBI and Justice Department abused their power in 2016. So let’s walk through what we’ve learned to date. Credit for knowing anything at all goes to Intel Chairman Devin Nunes and more recently a joint investigation by Reps. Bob Goodlatte... and Trey Gowdy... Over 18 months of reviewing tens...

    Tuesday night on MSNBC’s midterm election coverage, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said now that Democrats control the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump will not be able to tear down of the independence of the Justice Department. Schiff said, “The chances that Bob Mueller will be able to finish his work improved for the reason that our committee and others, like the government reform committee and the judiciary committee, which under Republican leadership served as basically surrogates for the president in their efforts to batter down the Justice Department, to give the president a pretext to fire people at the...

    California Rep. Adam Schiff (D) slammed President Trump on Thursday after Trump appeared to put some of the blame for several explosive devices mailed to top Democrats and and MSNBC contributor on the mainstream media. In a tweet, Schiff challenged Trump's assertion that "a very big part of the anger" felt in today's society was a result of "purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media." "You say there are good people on both sides of a neo-Nazi rally. Suggest that immigrants are all murders, rapists and gang members," Schiff tweeted Thursday. "Praise a politician who assaulted a reporter,"...

    House Democrats are expected to reopen the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election if they win the majority in November. But they would have to be selective in what they investigate. California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence panel, has said his party would have to “ruthlessly prioritize the most important matters first.” The Republican-led Intelligence Committee was the only House panel to investigate Russian meddling, and its investigation is now closed. Republicans say they found no evidence of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign. Democrats say Republicans ignored key facts and...

Schiff said the Senate convicted him on four articles of impeachment...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

"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.
