  • Adam Schiff: Andrew McCabe's firing 'may be justified'

    03/18/2018 4:11:16 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 76 replies
    The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday he feels the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may be justified, contrary to his party’s messaging in the last two days. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on ABC’s “This Week” said he’s waiting to see more information on McCabe’s dismissal before making an ultimate judgment. Democrats and ex-intelligence officials have roundly criticized the decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions — seen as imposed by President Trump — to fire McCabe two days before his pension would have vested. “You know, his firing may be justified,” Schiff said.

    The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday that congressional members need to “speak out” now about the importance of maintaining the special counsel’s Russia investigation, before there’s a “constitutional crisis.” Rep. Adam Schiff of California was responding to a question from ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday. “What would happen if the president” fired special counsel Robert Mueller? Stephanopoulos asked.

    RUSH: Yesterday I said that the Democrats had a golden opportunity. With the House Intelligence Committee chaired by Devin Nunes and run by the Republicans with the House Intelligence Committee announcing the end of their investigation into collusion between Trump and Russia to the affect the election because they found no evidence. They have interviewed 73 witnesses, done tens of thousands of hours of interviews. They haven’t a shred of evidence. They ended the investigation. Nothing to see here. And I said, “This is a golden opportunity for about Pencil Neck, Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff, ’cause now all he’s got to...

    Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation needs to continue, even with the special counsel’s ongoing investigation into the matter. “We can’t simply rely on Bob Mueller cause his job is different than ours,” Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, said on CNN. He was referring to special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading the investigation into collusion claims between the Trump campaign and Russia. “It’s not his job to tell the country what happened...

    **SNIP** "The committee's conclusion means leaders in Congress can spend more time on issues the American people elected them to address, like infrastructure and the economy," RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens told the Washington Examiner. "It's not shocking that the person most upset by the outcome had used the investigation to launch his TV career," he said in reference to Schiff. Ahrens' group last month calculated that Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, held 227 TV interviews in the 13 months ending late February about the Russia probe, according to the RNC. Schiff over the last year became the bane...

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans announced Monday that they found “no evidence of collusion,” between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the panel’s ‘Russia probe.’ Shortly after the announcement, ranking member of the House Intel Committee leaker Adam Schiff (D-CA) blew a gasket. Schiff tweeted a response after it was announced GOP members closed down the Trump-Russia probe after finding no evidence of Trump colluding with the Kremlin. Rep. Schiff claims the Russians may have leverage over Trump but the committee members would rather not not know. WHATEVER. In his statement, Schiff claims the GOP House Intel members placed their...

    The House Intelligence Committee has ended the Russian collusion probe and concludes that there is no evidence that there was any collusion. Republicans who control the House Intelligence Committee ended an investigation into the 2016 presidential election over intense objections from Democrats, saying they found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives. The committee’s GOP leaders announced their decision on Monday, adding that they plan to release a report soon on their findings. The probe -- originally intended to be bipartisan -- is ending even though an inquiry by Special Counsel Robert Mueller remains underway...

    South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy just delivered a nasty bare-knuckle blow to California's biggest clown, Adam Schiff.

Trey Gowdy (left), Adam Schiff (right) (Photo Credits: YouTube/Fox News/The View) Trey Gowdy (R-SC) recently appeared on Fox News with news anchor Bill Hemmer to discuss why Congress is ill-equipped to conduct real investigations into the corruption that runs rampant in the Department of Justice and the FBI.

    ...It is a weird thing to watch the media uncritically receive and regurgitate dozens of leaks — all of them out of context, some of them downright false — from Rep. Adam Schiff and his team and then write up that the other side is leaking. This is particularly bizarre given the general lack of leaks coming from House Permanent Select Committee Republicans. At the very least it’s worth noting that there were no leaks from Intelligence Committee Republicans about their 4-page memo alleging FISA abuses, even as the agencies and Democrats on the committee put out anticipatory leaks to...

    American Thinker ^ | February 25, 2018 | Allan J. Favish
    The Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (“HPSCI”) wrote a memorandum that was released yesterday, February 24, 2018. Although the Democrats’ Schiff memorandum is in response to the Nunes memorandum released on February 2, 2018, by the Republicans on the HPSCI, any evaluation of the Democrats’ memorandum must include discussion of the Grassley memorandum released on February 6, 2018 by the Republicans on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. This is because the Senate memorandum is more detailed. On February 21, 2018, I explained that the Senate memorandum “states that the FBI largely relied upon Steele’s credibility...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – The 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team was a colossal flop, winning just 23 medals overall, the lowest U.S. total since 1998. This comes despite the fact that the Games have been loaded up with junk sports over the last 20 years specifically in order to give the U.S. a shot at winning more medals, in hopes of boosting TV ratings. Not surprisingly, the poor U.S. performance also led directly to these Olympic games setting new lows in terms of television audience. But all is not...

Consistent with my comments, he notes some of the Democrats’ rebuttals of points not made by the Republicans. In any event, here is his response.
  • The Nickname Trump Used For Adam Schiff Sunday Is The Most Savage One Yet

    02/19/2018 7:42:35 PM PST · by MNDude · 36 replies
    President Donald Trump went on a scorched-earth tweetstorm Sunday morning calling out a number of major political issues and enemies. Trump focused on the “vindication” of his campaign in the Russia investigation, rising GOP poll numbers and CNN’s cratering ratings. However, Trump, who is very fond of nicknames, saved his most savage barb for Adam Schiff. "Finally, Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!"

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said that former White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon will likely be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with them. He has refused to answer several questions about the investigation into Russian collusion, Schiff said. "I think it's likely that he will face a contempt citation," Schiff said Thursday at a Council on Foreign Relations event.Instead of offering information, Bannon has been citing executive privilege on behalf of President Trump.“The only questions he would answer were questions that had been scripted, literally scripted for him by the...
  • House Democrats’ surveillance memo at stand still, unclear when or if it’ll be released

    The Washington Times ^ | February 15, 2018 | Alex Swoyer
    Rep. Adam B. Schiff said Thursday he’s uncertain when the Democratic memo concerning alleged surveillance abuses will be released and he wouldn’t say whether he’ll work on it next week while Congress is out of town. His comments come roughly one week after the White House refused to release the memo, saying sensitive information in the memo as drafted would betray national security interests. But with Congress being out on recess next week, and the White House potentially having five days to review the edited version, the memo may not get released until next month — if at all.
