    With polls showing a double-digit lead for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Donald Trump, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif) announced that he will move to Canada if Trump wins in November. Schiff's staff were reportedly dismayed by this announcement. In an off-the-record comment, staff member Patrick Boland observed that "as hated as Schiff is among Trump's base of deplorables, the chance that they might get him to leave will undoubtedly energize them. We don't think it will be enough to overcome Biden's big lead, but stranger things have happened. Adam's word doesn't count for much with...

    A new report raises serious questions regarding what House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff knew about bounties allegedly paid by Russia to Taliban-linked terrorists for killing American soldiers, and when he knew it. Sources told the outlet that top committee staff for Schiff were briefed all the way back in February on intelligence about a Russian military intelligence unit covertly offering the bounties to militants. But the California Democrat “took no action in response,” the outlet reported, citing those sources. What has surfaced is an allegation that Schiff did exactly what he is accusing Trump of doing right now...

    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., withdrew his endorsement of Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, who is seeking a third term in office. Schiff had initially thrown his support behind Lacey last year, but the incumbent DA now faces a progressive challenger during a time when law enforcement is facing criticism across the country. "This is a rare time in our nation's history. We have a responsibility to make profound changes to end systemic racism & reform criminal justice," Schiff tweeted Saturday, adding that he and California Assemblymember Laura Friedman "no longer feel our endorsement of Jackie Lacey a year ago...

    “We do need, I think, to expose the length and breadth of this president’s depravity and how much it is endangering the country. So those facts are going to need to come out, and we are discussing with the speaker and my fellow chairs just how to do that,” Mr. Schiff said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I don’t think we should wait [until November] if we conclude that there are important things that he says that need to be exposed to the public. The public needs to know exactly what they have in this president,” he added.
  • Ed Buck’s Trial Delayed Until January 2021, and a New (Black) Lawyer Joins His Defense Team (Schiffty's big sigh of relief)

    Ed Buck’s Laurel Avenue apartment apparently is still empty and on the market. But his cell at the federal Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles will remain occupied for longer than originally anticipated. That’s because the date of Buck’s trial on two federal charges of providing drugs resulting in death of two black men and three counts of distributing methamphetamine to young black men, once scheduled for Nov. 26, 2019, then moved to Aug. 4 of this year now has been postponed to Jan. 19, 2021. Buck, 65, is a white gay man known for his donations to Democratic...

    As protests against police brutality spread across the country, President Trump looked impotent, unable to offer anything reassuring and tweeting angrily from inside a White House under siege. But Trump has hit on a solution: designate “antifa” a terrorist organization, to make it look as if the protests have been taken over by radical terrorists, and to create the impression that he’s getting fearsomely tough in response. In an interview with us, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told us that the designation itself, which has no legal basis, appears to be a “characteristically political act." Schiff, the chair of the House...
  • Michael Flynn transcripts reveal plenty except crime or collusion

    “Remember ... Ambassador, you're not talking to a diplomat, you're talking to a soldier.” When President Trump’s incoming national security adviser, Michael Flynn, said those words to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, he also spoke to American intelligence agents listening in on the call. For three years, congressional Democrats have assured us Flynn’s calls to Kislyak were so disturbing that they set off alarms in the closing days of the Obama administration. They were right. The newly released transcripts of Flynn’s calls are deeply disturbing — not for their evidence of criminality or collusion but for the total absence of such...

    Tomorrow morning ends the tenure of Richard “Ric” Grenell as the acting Director of National Intelligence. At 12:15pm DNI John Ratcliffe will be sworn-in [LINK] and the declassification/sunlight baton will be passed to senate confirmed DNI John Ratcliffe. On the topic of the FBI capture and use of the December 29, 2016, Flynn-Kislyak phone call… First we had a hunch; then it became a suspicion… that evolved into a likelihood… that has now become a strong probability. The capture of the December 29th phone call, which generated the raw “CR cuts“, was an FBI summary, modified for a specific interpretation....

    Rep. Adam Schiff called on Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to declassify the underlying intelligence reports on former national security adviser Michael Flynn so the American public may have a "complete public record free of political manipulation." Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, wrote Grenell a letter Thursday blasting him for selectively declassifying the names of several Obama administration officials who "acted appropriately" to seek the identity of a U.S. person in intelligence reports -- who turned out to be Flynn-- while failing to also declassify the transcript of conversations Flynn had with the Russian ambassador that prompted...

    Rep. Adam Schiff said the Wall Street Journal editorial board, which has been heavily critical of his work as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has "no credibility." The California Democrat told the Daily Beast in a podcast last week that the Wall Street Journal has become a "Trumpist" newspaper when asked to respond to an editorial that urged people to not trust him anymore because of how he "spread falsehoods shamelessly" for three years with his repeated claims of there being evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been feeding the American people misinformation for years. He used his position — replete with access to information and people in the know — to distribute wild accounts of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The effect was to frighten and alarm millions of Americans, sowing division between neighbors, toxifying our discourse and raising anxieties. The Trump administration spent time and resources fighting off the fallacy that cursed them since day one and deprived the American people of a president who could devote his time and energy to the policies they had elected...

    Gavin Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle, since his inauguration continues the decades-long saga of four San Francisco families intertwined by blood, by marriage, by money, by culture and, of course, by politics – the Browns, the Newsoms, the Pelosis and the Gettys. The connections date back at least 80 years, to when Jerry Brown’s father, Pat Brown, ran for San Francisco district attorney, losing in 1939 but winning in 1943, with the help of his close friend and Gavin Newsom’s grandfather, businessman William Newsom. Fast forward two decades...

    Russia Investigation Transcripts and Documents Materials from the Committee's Investigation into Russian Active Measures In 2017 and 2018, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) undertook an investigation into Russia’s interference campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election. The Committee’s investigation came on the heels of an Intelligence Community assessment, which found: “Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a...

    The California Democrat has asserted since launching his investigation that there was behind-the-scenes evidence proving there was collusion and would tease the he could not 'go into particulars.' 'The Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help,' Schiff told CNN in December 2017. 'The Russians gave help and the President made full use of that help.' But the Journal asserts: 'None of this was true, and Mr. Schiff knew it.' In one instance of contradictory testimony, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Schiff and the panel of lawmakers in December 2017 that he 'never saw any direct empirical evidence...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich advised President Trump on Wednesday to “cut off” ties with the House Intelligence Committee since the chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, is a “proven liar” about Russian collusion. “We now have documented evidence that, for three years, this guy deliberately and maliciously lied. Why would you cooperate with an Intelligence Committee chairman who is a clear proven liar?” Gingrich told “America’s Newsroom.” “I think the president should just cut him off and say, ‘If you want to give me an Intelligence Committee that I can trust, I’ll work with them, but, this guy is impossible.” He...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff played “magician” by claiming there was Russian collusion without clear evidence, and the media helped push the narrative for three years, journalist and author Lee Smith argued on Tuesday. “The press played magician’s assistant, helping Schiff obscure what was going on for three years,” the author of "The Plot Against President Trump" told “Fox & Friends.” Smith said it was "sad" that Schiff’s Russia collusion narrative was pushed so heavily by the media. He also said that while a lot of “very important press institutions hold the same name, they no longer serve the...

    This occurred to me when a guy called in to Lars Radio Show about a person on Schiff's staff had access to this file on Flynn (former Intel gal). He was thinking that she (the person on his staff) leaked it, but I thought about how cozy Schiff is with the press and know if she told him about it he would leak it without thinking of the consequences. I don't think there is immunity if this is the case, would explain his bald face lies and facial mask of desperation all the time.
  • Payback is Coming For Adam Schiff, His Career In On The Line And Resignation Is On The Table For Russian Collusion Investigation, Tucker Carlson Says

    On Friday Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that Schiff should resign over the “elaborate and intentional” Russia hoax that alleged that President Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 presidential election. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller found, after a lengthy investigation, that there was no evidence to support that theory. But for the better part of a year Schiff said that there was evidence that he had seen that would prove there was collusion. That evidenced was never seen. “On Thursday the House Intelligence Committee … finally released 57 transcripts of testimony delivered...
