  • Trump at Coronavirus Briefing Attacks Schiff, Cuomo, Biden, Whistleblower: ‘Someone Oughta Sue His Ass Off’ (someone's opinion)

    President Donald Trump fired off a laundry list of grievances at his daily White House press conference with the coronavirus task force Saturday, bashing Rep. Adam Schiff, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the Ukraine whistleblower. The wild diatribe was kicked off by a reporter asking Trump about his firing of Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who told Congress about the whistleblower complaint regarding Trump’s phone call with Ukraine, ultimately leading to his impeachment. “I thought he did a terrible job,” Trump said. “Absolutely terrible.” Trump proceeded to falsely claim the Ukraine whistleblower...
  • Devin Nunes Tells Sara Carter: “ICIG Michael Atkinson is Under Active Investigation”

    Sara Carter held a pod-cast interview with HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes.  At approximately 36:25 of the interview congressman Nunes discusses the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. The transcript from Atkinson’s House testimony has never been released.  Rep. Nunes states the reason HPSCI Chairman Schiff has kept the transcript hidden and classified is because the content is extremely damaging to the origin of the impeachment fraud.  Additionally, the testimony from Atkinson conflicted with evidence which surfaced later: “[Atkinson] is under active investigation. I’m not gonna go any farther than that because you know obviously he has a...

    This week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced the creation of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif), leader of this year's unsuccessful attempt to remove Trump from office via impeachment, is expected to head up this ad hoc committee. President Trump has questioned the timing of this announcement and suggested that "we win the war against this virus rather than wasting precious time and scarce resources trying to allocate blame now. After we've won this war we can assess what went wrong and what went right so we can be better...
  • Intelligence Community’s Inspector General Is the Link Between FISAgate and Impeachment

    As impeachment remains stalled for now, Democrats in the House of Representatives still refuse to release the closed-door testimony of a key witness in the concocted drama: Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community. Atkinson, you may recall, launched the impeachment saga when he determined that the accusations by the “whistleblower” about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president last summer were so alarming as to deem the complaint a matter of “urgent concern.” (It wasn’t.) Atkinson sent two letters to the House Intelligence Committee demanding immediate attention to the bogus complaint. “I have not been authorized to...

    On Thursday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called for an independent commission to investigate the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. Almost immediately afterward, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins reminded people that Schiff and Democrats spent the last six months trying to impeach and remove the president rather than address the threat of the coronavirus. During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Collins told host Brian Kilmeade there will be time to examine past actions with oversight after the crisis passes, noting that he didn’t think Schiff would like what he’ll see when placed under...
  • Dems Who Impeached Trump as Coronavirus Spread Now Want to Investigate His Coronavirus Response

    PJ Media ^ | April 3, 2020 | Tyler O'Neil
    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), perhaps the central figure in Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, began circulating draft legislation to investigate Trump's response to the coronavirus. In his press release on Friday, Schiff claimed the investigation is "not an exercise in casting blame or scoring political points," but Republicans are naturally skeptical. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new coronavirus oversight committee, headed by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who last month said the pandemic gives Democrats "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." After all, Democrats stalled the $2 trillion stimulus bill...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff proposed a bipartisan commission with subpoena power to investigate the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. “The commission will examine U.S. government preparedness in advance of this pandemic, the Federal government’s response to it, and provide recommendations to improve our ability to respond to and recover from future outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics,” Schiff said in a statement on Friday.

    The team is back in action. On Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the creation of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. The new panel will have the authority to investigate any aspect of the virus emergency and the Trump administration's handling of it. Pelosi's announcement came a day after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called for a 9/11-style independent commission to investigate "mistakes" in the virus response. Shortly after that, Schiff told the Washington Post that in Congress, House Democrats must investigate the Trump administration's handling of virus testing and the government's distribution of personal protective equipment...

    As night follows day, Adam Schiff is vowing to launch another "investigation" into the Trump administration's response to the Wuhan flu. Whether or not it was spawned in that wet market or the Wuhan lab as a bio-weapon, China seems to be using it as a cudgel in a diabolical attempt to bring the U.S. to its knees. Trump likely knows this but for a moment must accede to the hysteria. China thought it had us between the rock and the hard place since the Chinese produce so many of our needed drugs, beginning with Tylenol and all manner of...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the man who led the impeachment crusade against President Trump and lost, is vowing to launch yet another investigation into the administration. This time, he's going after Trump's response to Wuhan coronavirus.  After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes. Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic. I’m working on a bill to do that.https://t.co/uqO3BwVldN— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) April 1, 2020 Keep in mind while the disease was invading the country...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is drafting legislation that would set up an independent commission that would investigate why the country was unprepared for the coronavirus pandemic. “After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” the House Intelligence Committee Chairman said in a tweet. “Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.” Schiff did not give specifics regarding when the legislation will be dropped, but suggested it would be after Congress finishes the task at hand: mulling a series...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial distracted the federal government from the novel coronavirus as it reached the United States in January, despite warnings at the time from public health experts and members of Congress about the spread of the virus. McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that the deadly virus “came up while we were tied down on the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment.″ […] McConnell said Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas...

    “There are a lot of parallels between the president’s behavior now and during the whole Ukraine scandal,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who led Trump’s impeachment prosecution, told me. “Certainly the most apparent is his demand that the governors basically pay fealty to him, praise him, or they’ll suffer consequences.” “I don’t think anyone was that surprised when he was as vindictive as he was after the trial in firing people and having them marched out of the White House, and I don’t think anybody can be all that surprised now,” Schiff said of Trump. “Dismayed, horrified, appalled, yes. Their worst...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the $2 trillion coronavirus relief legislation, signed by President Donald Trump into law on Friday, “will hopefully help entertainment industry workers get through some of the hardships to come.” “I think we were very fortunate to get this language in the bill that does cover most of the entertainment industry workers who are freelancers, or who go from contract to contract, or just had a contract but it was canceled, or was about to start a show but the show was canceled or at least their continued work on it was postponed,” he told Deadline. The legislation expands the...

    The House Intelligence Committee and its chairman Adam Schiff invoked “sovereign immunity” in a motion to dismiss a Judicial Watch lawsuit seeking to obtain controversial phone records subpoenas issued during the Trump impeachment inquiry. The committee’s subpoenas of phone records ultimately led to the publication of multiple Americans’ phone records, including those of reporter John Solomon, California Rep. Devin Nunes, the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani and others.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff moved to dismiss a lawsuit seeking access to secretive subpoenas the California Democrat issued for call records he made public during last year’s impeachment investigation of President Trump. His legal team, led by Douglas Letter, the Democratic-led House’s general counsel, told the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday that “these requests and subpoenas were integral to the Committee’s inquiry and consistent with its mandate to investigate and issue a report” about whether Trump should be impeached. . . . In their filing on Friday, Schiff's lawyers argued Judicial Watch “has...

    The complaint said Phelps sent Schiff’s office a “threatening communication” through his schedule-a-meeting website in November. “You little c---sucker I want to come and see you so I can spit in your face and I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your sick little round fat lying face in,” the message said. “You had better hope I never meet up with you mother f---er.” The message was signed by “Robert M. Phelps Republican.” The email included Phelps’s full name, address, phone number, and email.
