  • Inside the room: What Steve Bannon told Congress yesterday

    Steve Bannon made one conspicuous slip up in his closed-door hearing on Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the confidential proceedings. Bannon admitted that he'd had conversations with Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and legal spokesman Mark Corallo about Don Junior's infamous meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016. Why it matters: The meeting — and the subsequent drafting of a misleading statement on Air Force One — has become one of the most important focal points of the Russia investigations, both on Capitol Hill and within Robert Mueller's team,...
  • Schiff: DOJ investigating Clinton Foundation at ‘badgering’ of White house

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday claimed the Justice Department is investigating the Clinton Foundation for politically motivated reasons rather than based on new evidence. The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee accused the White House of placing unrelenting pressure on the law enforcement agency to open a probe into the organization tied to Hillary Clinton, President Trump's 2016 Democratic opponent. "If they are investigating Hillary Clinton, it doesn't take a genius, let alone a stable genius, to see why," Schiff told host Jake Tapper on CNN’s "State of the Union," referencing President Trump's self-description of his mental fitness....

    Investigators from the House Intelligence Committee were finally able to get a peek at classified documents related to the controversial anti-Trump dossier behind closed doors at the Justice Department this week, Fox News reported. The committee's chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), subpoenaed the FBI and the Justice Department over two months ago for documents relating to the Russia dossier. Nunes told Fox News that in a bizarre turn of events, Democrats from the committee, who had argued all year that there was no need for a subpoena, were the first ones to show up at the DOJ on Tuesday to...
  • Democrats’ dishonest scramble to disown the Trump ‘dossier’

    Democrats have been quoting from the infamous anti-Trump “Steele dossier” as if it were gospel, but now that Hillary Clinton has been revealed as its paymaster and a Hillary-friendly FBI is under investigation for possibly launching the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe under its false pretenses, they are suddenly in full retreat from it. Their credibility is in tatters along with the discredited document. Rep. Adam Schiff, who’s led the Democrats’ “collusion” inquisition as vice chair of the House Intelligence Committee, fully embraced the dossier from the moment the panel kicked off a public hearing in March with then-FBI Director James Comey....

    Two months ago, Rep. Adam B. Schiff, who is leading the House Democrats’ inquisition of President Trump, said it “still remains to be seen” whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in its interference in the 2016 election. Then on Dec. 10, the congressman from California went in a different direction. “We do know this,” the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said on CNN, a frequent Schiff host. “The Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help. The Russians gave help and the president made full use of that help, and that is pretty damning, whether...
  • WashPost: Nunes Working on FBI Corruption Report

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and other Republicans are considering writing a report next year alleging corruption at the FBI, The Washington Post has reported. Such a report would focus on the conduct of FBI officials during the probe into Russia’s meddling in last year’s American presidential election, according to people familiar with the plans. This comes as President Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress have intensified their attacks on the FBI, which is seen by many as a way to try and discredit special counsel Robert Mueller, the former leader of the bureau, and bring into doubt...

    Adam SchiffÂ’s Wall Street Journal opinion article shows yet again that Democrats have no evidence of Trump collusion with Russia. SchiffÂ’s wild claims harm himself, and America. Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, writes in the Wall Street Journal that evidence abounds of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.But rather than providing evidence, he proves the opposite: Democrats have absolutely no proof of President Trump colluding with Russia. And Schiff harms himself and the country by making such wild claims. To see why, take SchiffÂ’s points in...

    Part One: RumorsDecember 2017. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), age 57, the Ranking Member of the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, is currently the Democrats’ Crusader-in-Chief of the “Russia collusion” campaign to impeach President Trump on grounds of treason. He is the Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) version of their “sexual harassment” campaign to impeach the President on grounds of impropriety. On Friday, the 15thThat was enough to create a “rumor on the Hill” that made the Democrats go ballistic and threaten to impeach President Trump (again!).

    In a letter sent to Congressman Michael Conaway (R-TX) this week, Donald Trump Jr. attorney Alan S. Futerfas, called for an investigation into leaks from the House Intelligence Committee, suggesting the individual who leaked the false WikiLeaks story did so knowingly. But first, here is a recap of the “story.” The mainstream media embarrassed itself once again after it was caught pushing ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news. Both CNN and CBS fell for inaccurate reports alleging a WikiLeaks email was sent to Donald Trump Jr. with an encryption key to access future leaks. However, WikiLeaks had tweeted a link to the information...

    The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee and a lead proponent of the Russian collusion narrative downplayed expectations there will be any smoking gun evidence showing collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, after months have passed and millions spent in investigations. Back in March, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-WA), in defending the need for investigations, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there was “circumstantial evidence” of collusion, and that the American people had a right to know whether the circumstantial evidence of collusion is “indicative of more.” But on Sunday, Schiff backed away from the need for any actual...

    By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content. The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email. It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks....

    For all of his success as a prosecutor, state legislator and congressman, it might have been his experience with a Black kid from Inglewood that has shaped Schiff most. In his mid-20s, fresh out of law school, he volunteered to become a “big brother” through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. He was paired with David McMillan, a child of a single mother who needed a male role model for her son. The two hit it off immediately, bonding over “The Big Lebowski,” Billy Joel and the beach. Three decades later, they are still part of each other’s...

    Rep. Adam B. Schiff, who is leading House Democrats’ inquisition into Trump-Russia collusion, has not given up on proving that his party’s financed, Kremlin-sourced dossier is true. The Californian pressed his case again this month during a long closed hearing with former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page to try to revive what had become dormant charges of criminal conduct. Mr. Schiff, who on Wednesday labeled President Trump “the worst president in modern history,” previously said that one of his main objectives for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence investigation is to find which dossier parts are true.

    Former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page on Thursday began his scheduled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee by bashing the panel itself. He released his opening statement that singles out Democrats for reading charges against him from a Democratic Party-funded dossier. Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democratic, was especially harsh on Mr. Page at the televised March hearing with then-FBI Director James B. Comey. Mr. Schiff read unverified allegations against Mr. Page from former British spy and dossier writer Christopher Steele. Mr. Page, a former volunteer Trump adviser who runs an energy investment firm in New York and worked...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Tuesday told The Associated Press that Russia and some of President Trump’s policies are a threat to American democracy. While Russia poses an external threat, “in many respects, the challenge from within is more serious because we have a president who takes issue with the First Amendment and a president who describes the press as the enemy of the people,” Schiff said. He also cited Trump’s criticism of judges who rule against him and his efforts to limit immigration from Muslim-majority countries as threats to democracy, adding that Trump is attempting to undermine the ongoing...

"I think it's kind of absurd, in the hours after this terrible attack to be using it as a fulcrum for a debate that has been going on in Congress for completely different reasons," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on MSNBC.

    With the first indictment looming from the federal Trump-Russia investigation, President Donald Trump is getting a reminder: His pardoning pardons can’t fix everything. “I don't think the president's power is all that absolute, as people have been suggesting,” California Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday. “The president cannot pardon people if it's an effort to obstruct justice, if it's an effort to prevent Bob Mueller and others from learning about the President's own conduct. So, there are limitations.” Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating the Trump campaign’s...
