Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been a disaster for America while serving as the Chairman of the House Select Permanent Committee on Intelligence since he ascended to the position in January 2019 when control of the House shifted to Nancy Pelosi.
In what is normally a position expected to protect highly classified information critical to national security, Schiff has been informally charged on numerous occasions of selectively leaking that information to the media in order to advance his political agenda.
Only two months into his chairmanship, in March 2019 every Republican on the House Intelligence Committee demanded Rep. Adam Schiff step down as chairman over the California Democrat’s repeated claims in the media that there was “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Schiff was pushing a narrative that, by that point, had been disproved. Schiff’s only motive was to divide Americans into two camps and feed into the irrational hatred of President Trump with the hope of removing Trump in 2020.
The letter fell on deaf ears as Schiff’s false narrative was adopted and continuously repeated by the Mockingbird media as factual. Speaker Pelosi (D-CA), who has the power to remove Schiff from his lofty chairmanship, was more intent on her party’s raw political power than protecting America’s national security.
Fast forward to the present.
This past Sunday morning Fox’s Maria Bartiromo hosted the immediate past Director of National Security Ric Grennel, and his permanent successor John Ratcliffe.
Former Acting DNI Grennel highlights the fact that Schiff used his authority to squelch the testimony of 53 deponents that, if made public, would have discredited his lies about collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Current DNI John Ratcliffe, in an effort to put an end to the incessant leaks, has decided to scale back in-person election security briefings to Congress in favor of written reports after accusing members of Congress of leaking information literally “within minutes” of briefings.
DNI Ratcliffe had changed to oral briefings as an accommodation to Pelosi’s request. Ratcliffe told Bartiromo that he had been going above and beyond in briefing “not just the oversight committees but every member of Congress” but will no longer do so.
“Within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes. To create a narrative that simply isn’t true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China.” – ODNI John Ratcliffe
Take note of Ratcliffe’s concern… To create a narrative that simply isn’t true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a history of going soft on China while his son received a $1.5 Billion loan, from China, for his investment company, a field he had no previous experience in.
Yesterday the calls for Schiff’s removal – and prosecution – came to a crescendo when Former House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz went live with his complaints about congress during an appearance on Fox’s Outnumbered after being asked about another Schiff lie…
“What Adam Schiff just said in that clip saying they were going to withhold documents, that’s not what John Ratcliffe said. He said he would provide them in writing, that’s what they’ve done.
“I got to tell you, the only part [where] I would disagree with my friends John Ratcliffe and the DNI, in general, is if they have direct information about the leaking of classified information, then prosecute them.
“File a complaint at the Department of Justice and prosecute Adam Schiff.
I have seen it, I have heard it, I have listened to everybody complain about how he leaks classified information. Then prosecute him.
“I don’t understand why he has a security clearance. Nobody is able to describe that to me, because he has done this repeatedly, misrepresented information. It is documented, and he should lose his security clearance. But if he’s done something illegal, like leaked classified information, prosecute him.”
The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee told “America’s Newsroom” that there was “no evidence of a quid pro quo” regarding President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25.
The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee told “America’s Newsroom” that there was “no evidence of a quid pro quo” in President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25.
“I think it’s a bit of a fishing expedition at this point in time,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, of Texas, on the Democrats’ push toward impeachment.
He faulted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrats, for conducting the investigation “in the most secret room in the Capitol.”
“At least have a vote on the House floor to move forward with this. It defies democracy. … All Adam Schiff is doing right now is building a secret record in his SCIF in a one-sided process to move forward toward impeachment.”
McCaul, a former federal prosecutor in the Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, said Trump’s phone call was reviewed by those officials, who purportedly found no criminal violations.
On Thursday, McCaul appeared on Fox News and said that the common theme from U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s closed-door interview was the absence of evidence of a quid pro quo.
McCaul told “The Story” he is limited in what he can say publicly due to a “gag rule” implemented by Schiff.
However, McCaul said Sondland’s testimony backed up President Trump’s phone call transcript.
“In his opening statement, he does refer to [former New York Mayor Rudy] Giuliani operating…sometimes in conjunction with the State Department, sometimes not,” he said. “I think what is a common theme with the testimony that’s been made public is there’s no quid pro quo here — and I think that’s very clear from the president’s phone conversation.”
Sources with firsthand knowledge of former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker’s testimony to House investigators earlier this month told Fox News that Volker said he consulted with Sondland and Giuliani in August regarding a draft statement from Ukraine on corruption.
The Washington Post awarded “Four Pinocchios” to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday, claiming he hadn’t told the truth about his knowledge of the whistleblower.
Schiff has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal but hasn’t been truthful in the process, according to Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler.
Kessler laid out a compelling, fact-based argument that Schiff wasn’t honest when asked if he had advanced knowledge about the whistleblower’s concerns regarding the now-infamous phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a series of interviews.
“Schiff’s answers are especially interesting in the wake of reports in The New York Times and The Washington Post that the whistleblower approached a House Intelligence Committee staff member for guidance before filing a complaint with the Intelligence Community inspector general,” Kessler wrote.
Last month, Schiff sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who asked if he was in contact with the whistleblower, or even if he simply knew their identity.
“I don’t know the identity of the whistleblower … I don’t want to get into any particulars. I want to make sure that there’s nothing that I do that jeopardizes the whistleblower in any way,” Schiff told CNN when asked if the whistleblower has contacted him.
The Post called this answer a “classic dodge” and noted that the CNN host didn’t bother with a follow-up question – which helped Schiff avoid giving a potentially damaging answer.
“He managed not to mislead; he just simply did not answer the question,” Kessler wrote of Schiff.
The very next day, Schiff appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he seemingly graduated from dodging to lying, the Post says.
“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower,” Schiff said on MSNBC.
Kessler noted that this is “flat-out false” given information that has since become available.
“Unlike the quick two-step dance he performed with Anderson Cooper, Schiff simply says the committee had not spoken to the whistleblower. Now we know that’s not true,” the Post’s fact-checker wrote.
A committee spokesman attempted to defend Schiff in a statement to the Post: “He intended to answer the question of whether the Committee had heard testimony from the whistleblower, which they had not… the whistleblower was then awaiting instructions from the Acting DNI as to how the whistleblower could contact the Committee. Nonetheless, he acknowledges that his statement should have been more carefully phrased to make that distinction clear.”
On Sept. 19, Schiff was at it again, according to the Post, when speaking with reporters at the Capitol.
“In the absence of the actions, and I want to thank the inspector general, in the absence of his actions in coming to our committee, we might not have even known there was a whistleblower complaint alleging an urgent concern,” Schiff said.
The Post’s fact-checker called this “misleading” comment “more dissembling” and noted that “his committee knew that something explosive was going to be filed with the IG.”
Kessler wrote there “are right ways and wrong ways to answer reporters’ questions if a politician wants to maintain his or her credibility” and there is “nothing wrong with dodging a question, as long as you don’t try to mislead.”
But Schiff “clearly made a statement that was false” on MSNBC and “compounded his falsehood” when speaking with reporters at the Capitol, Kessler wrote.
Forty-five Republicans have joined a resolution condemning Adam Schiff for misrepresenting a phone conversation between Trump and Zelensky.
Forty-five Republicans have joined the resolution, sponsored by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ), to condemn Schiff for retelling a fabricated conversation between Trump and Zelensky. Biggs sponsored H. Res. 604, and it quickly gained support throughout the House Republican conference.
When Biggs sponsored the bill, he said that Schiff’s stunt was “inexcusable” to “mislead the American public with such a statement.”
Although a public list of cosponsors only shows 18 Republicans supporting the resolution, an internal GOP list obtained by Breitbart News shows that 45 Republicans have joined the list of GOP lawmakers to condemn Schiff. This represents a growing movement of Republicans to fight back against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) and Democrats’ move to impeach Trump.

Republicans have quickly mounted an offensive against Schiff and his misrepresentation of the conversation between Trump and Zelensky.
Keller announced Thursday that he will join a growing list of Republicans planning to condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff for retelling a fabricated conversation between Trump and Zelensky.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California said that “people have suffered enough” because of President Trump and that a real leader would re-open the part of the government that has been shuttered since December.
In a Face the Nation interview, Adam Schiff claims that the government shut down is due to:
‘ “sagging poll numbers” and a “broken promise” to his base that the Mexican government would pay for a border wall.
He continues to say that,
“[Trump] said he’d be proud of [a shutdown]. He needs to put an end to it. People have suffered enough,” Schiff said. “Put an end to this, and continue negotiations. That’s what a real president would do.”
But what about the leaders of the Democrat Party? Since the shutdown, they have abandoned their post in Washington. While the Republicans have continued to work, trying to set up meetings and create compromises, the Democrats have been on vacation in Puerto Rico. They have refused to stay and fight to open up the government.
The Democrats are self-righteous hypocrites. They are always pointing out how President Trump should behave or conduct himself. And yet they demonstrate the behaviors they are complaining about.
One thing you constantly hear the Democrats say is “Put an end to this, and continue negotiations.”But if the Democrats were serious about negotiating, they would be negotiating now. Their actions clearly show they are not interested in compromising. They want to make President Trump look bad and plot the American people against him before 2020.
On MSNBC’s “Deadline” with Nicolle Wallace on Wednesday, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the country cannot ignore the predominant domestic threat being the white nationalist threat and “some of the folks are part of the Trump base.”
This is the same man who lied every time he got on TV for over two years about Trump-Russia collusion. Schiff said that he personally had evidence of collusion. The only problem was he never revealed what it was. He kept saying he couldn’t reveal his evidence was because of the never-ending investigations.
Even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed that his two-and-a-half-year investigation, like the first two investigations, one in the House and a bipartisan investigation in the Senate, came up with zero evidence that Trump or anyone in his campaign colluded with the Russians, Schiff continued to say there was real evidence and to this day he never said what it was. He was lying. Schiff always lies. And he’s lying now about white nationalists. There is no credible white nationalist threat to the country, and it is insulting to claim that Trump supporters have anything to do with white nationalists. If there were a white nationalist threat, we would see them.
“I want to ask you about the work on the intelligence committee,” Wallace said. “Is it different now that the intel chiefs testified to the tragic new reality that the gravest threats to the country are domestic violent extremists? Currently, under the threat warning, we know about radicalized by the big lie still being repeated by Donald Trump. I believe six times since last week and some COVID restrictions where he was also a leading and rater with tweets of liberate Michigan and liberate Virginia?”
The big lie is Democrats like Wallace and Schiff dismissing the very real, very credible evidence of massive voter fraud during the 2020 election. The evidence was real and palpable. We’ve seen it. I’ve seen it. We watched the legislature hearings where whistleblowers, real whistleblowers not like Schiff’s version who come with second and third-hand knowledge, testify under penalty of perjury to numerous accounts of voter fraud. We listened to data experts who analyzed 2020 voter data and found serious irregularities only in the battleground states. That’s what they call the big lie.
It is insufferable to listen to this kind of garbage coming from a member of Congress. The country watched ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter topple public statues, loot businesses, burn down businesses, take over police precincts, murder innocent people. And that wasn’t just a Friday night. Riots went on every day throughout the entire summer of 2020, and these clowns at MSNBC give a license to Schiff to claim the biggest domestic terror threat is white nationalists. You can probably fit them all into a school bus, and yet they say absolutely nothing about the threat of Woke mobs rioting in cities to this very day.
Schiff replied, “It does affect the work of our committee certainly. I think all of the domestic agencies with a portfolio with domestic terrorism have to prioritize it like FBI and DHS. We have the responsibility of overseeing the intelligence component of that. We were already doing an investigation last year into politicization of intelligence at DHS where one whistleblower was alleging that instructions were being given essentially to downplay the seriousness of the domestic terror committed by white nationalists and hype the threat of Antifa.”
This sounds like more of Schiff’s invisible evidence he always goes on about. The whole country watched as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter set buildings on fire, beat people, looted, set a federal building on fire, and more. We didn’t see white nationalists doing these things.
Shiff continued, “We saw that from Bill Barr and others in the leadership of the last administration. We just had a hearing on this subject. I can tell you one of the ongoing challenges is a lot of the Republican members didn’t think that our committee or the intelligence agencies, even those like the FBI and DHS with responsibility here, should be looking at this. That’s quite remarkable. You know, if we were looking at the threat of Islamic terror, the threat from within there would be no reservation about that among my GOP colleagues. But they were very uncomfortable clearly with the FBI and DHS looking at the problem of white nationalism and domestic terror.”
This from the party that used federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to spy on a presidential campaign, then spied on a president-elect, and then spied on the president. It doesn’t get any more politicized than that.
The question is why are they not looking at the groups of people who rioted every day throughout the summer instead of wasting time on the January 6 riot that was not made up of white nationalists, at least according to the FBI. The Democrat’s big lie is that white nationalists are the ones who stormed the Capitol building. The FBI says there were none.
Wallace said, “I was a member of the Republican Party in good standing after 9/11. I can’t fathom the Republicans having that hear no evil, see no evil do nothing about the response to 9/11. You are right. When the threat was foreign terrorism, there was not enough that they could do. There was no measure too aggressive. My question is, can you protect this country with one of the two major political parties refusing to recognize the threat?”
The segment came off as choreographed. I wouldn’t put anything beyond MSNBC or Adam Schiff. They do these segments to hammer the thought that the people they encouraged over the summer to riot aren’t the problem. Schiff and Fake News want to attack Trump supporters to take the focus off what the Democrats are pushing through Congress. It’s really that simple. In the same manner, Schiff lied about having credible evidence of Russian collusion to keep the focus off what the Democrats were doing. He is repeating the tactic here.
Schiff said, “We ought to be able to find common ground that the predominant terrorism threat facing the country right now is a domestic threat. The predominant part of that domestic threat is white national threat. That has international, transnational links as well. We can’t ignore that because of a political sensitivity that some of the folks are part of the Trump base. So I hope we can find common ground. We need to make sure we protect the country.”
Adam Schiff is incapable of telling the truth. The domestic threat that should be taken seriously is not the clowns who call themselves white nationalists, but ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter who are the ones who did real damage to real people in cities across the country. Listening to Schiff on the conspiracy network MSNBC is a complete waste of time.
Whistleblower Tony Bobulinski says that the reason he decided to come forward was that serial liar, Adam Schiff claimed he was Russian disinformation.
Schiff and fish have never learned one important lesson. If you don’t want to get caught, keep your mouth closed. Schiff is particularly vulnerable since almost every word out of his mouth is a lie.
“When I saw Adam Schiff go on record, talking about Russian disinformation, after this email had been posted online by the New York Post…I was at the end of my rope. And so, I called Rob Walker and I told him that if that statement isn’t retracted by Congressman Schiff by midnight on Sunday, that I was going on record, and I was disclosing all the facts to the American government, to the American citizen, and the world. I was hoping the Bidens would do the right thing, or Schiff would retract his statement.”
And exactly what has Bobulinski revealed to date? :
He confirmed “the Big Guy” AKA “the chairman” referred to in Hunter’s emails is indeed Joe Biden
He met with Joe Biden at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles in May of 2017 to discuss Hunter’s business deals in China
Mr. Bobulinski said he received an email concerning allocation of equity, which says 10% held by “H” for “the Big guy” in that email there’s no question that “H” stands for Hunter, and “big guy” for his father Joe Biden and Jim for Jim Biden
Bobulinski confirmed that he was warned by his business partner never to mention Joe Biden was involved in Hunter’s shady business dealings over email or text (only face to face) because the Bidens (Joe, Hunter and Jim Biden) were paranoid people would find out.
Bobulinski said Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter Biden’s overseas grift and influence peddling scheme
He confirmed the Bidens went behind his back and got paid millions by the Chinese in side deals outside of their contract
Bobulinski gave Schiff a chance to retract his statement with the warning that unless he did, Bobulinski would go public. Schiff called his bluff, but Bobulinski wasn’t bluffing. So, if you want to blame someone for the revelations from Bobulinski, blame Schiff. This October Surprise brought to you by Adam Schiff.
The information being supplied by Bobulinski is absolutely devastating.
Bobulinski has revealed that Joe Biden lied when he claimed that he knew nothing of Hunter’s shady business deals.
Bobulinski met with Joe Biden twice and he said that Joe was very much aware of Hunter’s business dealings and was paid 10% on one of the deals. It was Bobulinski that revealed the reference to the Big Guy was about Joe Biden.
It is too early to tell if these facts will affect the election but they surely won’t help. But, then again, Democratic voters are so used to their politicians being totally corrupt, it may not cost Joe a single vote.
Democrats are still insisting that it is all Russian disinformation despite the fact that neither Joe or Hunter Biden are not denying the authenticity of the emails and other documents.
Richard Grenell, the acting Director of National Intelligence for President Donald J. Trump, was on Fox News Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, and talked about the importance of understanding the threat America faces from China, from rouge reporters who published manipulated leaked information, and from US House Representatives like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.
Directly after a bold interview where Grenell calls out the danger of leaks from “The Hill” to bad media, he called out Jake Tapper on Twitter for diminishing the threat America faces from China.
Grenell spoke to Bartiromo and said talked about understand the threats American faces, and about being homosexual.
ON BEING GAY
“Trump doesn’t care that I am gay,” Grenell said.
ON CHINA AND THE RUSSIA THREATS:
“I had career intelligence officers come to me and tell me they didn’t want to brief Congress anymore because they twist around what they hear, that they [Congress] manipulates and leak out things they hear with partial information and are ruining people’s careers. This has happened on more than one occasion, so think about that. Career intelligence officials are saying that they don’t want to brief the Hill because the Hill and Congress is politicizing their work,”Richard Grenell told Maria Bartiromo, on Sunday.
“The overwhelming number of Career Intelligence officials want to keep the government secrets and work for the government and work for whoever is helping the President. They are not out to get people. However, we have some bad apples who are either current or former officials who are leaking partial information to cheerleading reporters and so what DNI Ratcliffe is doing is trying to solve the leaks. We don’t have a very good intelligence system. And remember that intelligence is an estimate. We do not have a very good intelligence system if people leak partial information for politics. And we are in this situation now where Adam Schiff , Nancy Pelosi and reporters like Jake Tapper push these narratives out that say, Russia Russia Russia,” Grenell said.
“Russia is about Propaganda, and that is what they have been pushing from the very beginning. And everyone should be clear that Russia manipulates information and pushes propaganda. Everyone should be clear that Russia manipulates information. The Chinese are on a completely different level. We have a crisis with the Russian disinformation campaign but the current crisis and situation that we are dealing with that is incredibly serious is the Chinese threat. It is a much higher threat and so what John Ratcliffe is trying to do is solve that problem. I applaud that work,”Grenell said.
Sen Ron Johnson and Sen Chuck Grassley have sent a letter to the propaganda leadership in the House, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, and in the Senate, Sen Chuck Schumer and Sen Mark Warner, accusing them of knowingly spreading false intelligence. Come on guys, they have to spread fake intelligence because they have no idea where to find real intelligence.
The Senators noted that while they went on TV and kept swearing that there was collusion between Trump and Russia, they sitting in hearings behind closed doors that refuted the existence of collusion. Even after the special counsel Robert Mueller spent 22 months looking into every nook and cranny with unlimited manpower and money and came up empty, they have continued to lie.
Grassley and Johnson accused the Democrats of spreading fake news for political gain. Why don’t the Democrats comment on the fact that our intelligence community has determined China wants Biden to win? And why not? They already own him, having sunk over 3 billion dollars in investments with Hunter Biden. They wouldn’t even have to make anything up, it’s already well documented.
The Senators wrote:
“It is certainly our goal to eradicate foreign influence from our elections. But your use of this issue to knowingly and recklessly promote false narratives for political purposes is completely contrary to that goal.”
Adam Schiff is the worst of the lot. Almost every night, or at least it seemed so, he would be on CNN saying that there was more than circumstantial proof of collusion. He knew it didn’t exist and to cover it up, he did not allow the transcripts to be released because they proved he lied. But acting DNI director Richard Grenell released them and they were shocking to say the least.
Last month top Democrats in both the House and Senate wrote a letter to the FBI asking the bureau to provide Congress with a counterintelligence briefing on a so-called ‘concerted foreign interference’ campaign targeting Congress and the 2020 election.
Johnson and Grassley pushed back and said the Democrats are purposely leaking information and spreading disinformation to muddy the election.
Schiff has repeatedly claimed he has concrete evidence Trump colluded with the Russians, however he has never produced any evidence to back up his outrageous claims.
