FLASHBACK: Adam Schiff called for FISA transparency on Russian TV!
American Mirror ^ | 2/3/18 | Kyle Olson

Posted on 02/03/2018 1:17:05 PM PST by markomalley

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff had a very different message for Russians in 2013 than he has for Americans today.

Then, he was advocating for more transparency when it came to the U.S. government spying on Americans and foreigners.

Today, not so much.

During a 2013 appearance on RT, which is controlled by the Russian government, Schiff said we wanted more transparency, which RT characterized as efforts to “inject more oversight into the NSA’s surveillance programs and the top secret FISA court.”

The RT anchor introduced Schiff as “one of those members of Congress leading the effort.”

In July 2013, Schiff told the Russians the reforms he was promoting “would have the cumulative effect of making the FISA court much more transparent so the American people can understand what’s being done in their name and in the name of national security, so we can have a more informed debate over the balance between privacy and security.”

He said the reforms he was supporting would mean more openness about the judges being appointed and their views on “Fourth Amendment issues.”

“It will also mean through the declassification of opinions of the constitutional principles involved and how courts are interpreting provisions of law,” Schiff told RT.

He said the intent of the reforms was to improve “public confidence” in the system.

But when it came to releasing Devin Nunes’ memo detailed alleged FISA abuses by the Obama administration, Schiff opposed such transparency, accusing President Trump of placing “his own interests ahead of the country.”

He later tweeted that the memo’s apparent attempt at transparency was “a transparent attempt to discredit” the Department of Justice and FBI.

Typical behavior of those in his party:

In March 6, 2009, during a trip to Geneva, She (Hillary Clinton) presented Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov a small, red button. Hillary thought it was emblazoned with the Russian word for “reset.” Her team mistranslated and the button actually read “overload.”

While visiting Moscow on March 24, 2010, Hillary explained the Reset’s purpose: “Our goal is to help strengthen Russia.”

Hypocrisy for a democrat is necessary to attain party leadership.

Just like lying and diddling 18 years old interns (or worst).

This guy is a real piece of schiff, all last year calling for Trumps impeachment when Trump was right all along. What is it with Cali constantly electing these absolute scum rats into office?

OK, the president has a right to fire anyone who was giving him that first security briefing where the dossier was shown to him. Remember the security briefing where Clapper and others showed the dossier to Trump and they said it was false. Then they leaked that meeting to the press. At that meeting they admitted it was false. Everyone in that briefing should be fired by Trump now for giving a false security briefing to a President elect.

We need to nationalize the mid-terms and fill the airways with examples like this which show the kind of hypocritical sermonizing the left is so full of since they lost in the last election.

Schiff has some problems with a hotel owner and an apparent drug-killer donor.

Anyone with a twitter account is urged to text him to ‘explain the hotel’

Maybe Schiff is a Russian agent. We should have the FBI look into that.

Adam Schiff has no credibility given the utter amount of times he has been shown on various lamestream media outlets of the last year spouting utter BS....with no evidence/proof, and yet.....he is still espousing his BS....go frakin’ figure. Idiots will always be idiots, Schiff is living, breathing proof if such.

Schiff was on RT after the reddit ban? That’s funny!

Didn’t the Dems just spend the last year crucifying anyone who ever appeared on RT tv? At the same time lauding the communists and socialists blocking our streets with stupidity and greed.
