Schiff says intelligence community withholding documents on Ukraine
NBC 'News' via MSM ^ | 1/19/20 | Allan Smith

Posted on 01/19/2020 5:26:47 PM PST by Libloather

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Sunday that the National Security Agency is withholding "potentially relevant documents" from Congress regarding Ukraine just as President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial is set to start.

"The intelligence community is beginning to withhold documents from Congress on the issue of Ukraine," Schiff told ABC's "This Week." "They appear to be succumbing to pressure from the administration. The NSA in particular is withholding what are potentially relevant documents to our oversight responsibilities on Ukraine, but also withholding documents potentially relevant that the senators might want to see during the trial."

"That is deeply concerning," Schiff continued. "And there are signs that the CIA may be on the same tragic course. We are counting on the intelligence community not only to speak truth to power but to resist pressure from the administration to withhold information from Congress because the administration fears that they incriminate them."

Sounds like Schiffty called a halt to his investigation too soon. That's a shame. Poor planning on his part doesn't mean an emergency on the Senate's part.

Why don't the Rats just announce that they know that they have no evidence of truly impeachable offenses?

Because that would require honesty...honesty being a word the Rats can't even spell.

Our intelligence community is not supposed to help politicians. They are supposed to gather and process information for the the purpose of making decisions related to defense and in other matters pertaining to the well-being of the Nation as a whole. With any luck, this is a sign that those agencies now understand that.

If the NSA is withholding documents, how would he know they would be helpful for his case?

Schiff is a charlatan.

Schiff is caught with holding Ed Buck’s hand. Now the Dem House is dirty and are withholding the mop and bucket for Schiff to clean things up as janitor. That’s his new position once things go south in the Senate.
