Thursday wasn’t a good day from California knucklehead and Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff. After the revelations about his contact with the “whistleblower” before the complaint was filed were revealed, it appears he intentionally broke committee rules.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said in a statement:
We learn from the press today that Chm Schiff had prior knowledge and involvement in the [whistleblower] complaint. He withheld this info from the American people and even from the Intel Cmte. In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY) who is another Republican on the House Intelligence Committee also confirmed that Schiff kept the information from Republicans and is calling him to step down.
Stefanik said, “Re-upping my tweet from last week given the breaking news today that Adam Schiff had early access to the whistleblower & DID NOT share it with his own committee – instead he manipulated this information & played partisan political games. He should immediately step down as Chair.”
Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and chief of staff to the National Security Council, said Schiff broke committee rules when he hid information from the Republicans.
“Under @HouseIntelComm rules, any classified info brought to the committee from outside sources MUST BE SHARED WITH BOTH SIDES. Schiff broke committee rules by not telling committee GOP members about this,” tweeted Fleitz, who once worked as a staffer on the House Intelligence Committee. “This is a very serious violation of @HouseIntelComm rules. Why did Schiff do this, especially when he was using this information to score political points throughout the month of August? The reason is clear: it was part of a the latest Dem ploy to take down @realDonaldTrump.”
On Wednesday the New York Times reported that the “whistleblower” who is a CIA official met with a Schiff staffer with concerns about President Trump. Only after that meeting did the “whistleblower” file a complaint with the inspector general and file a whistleblower complaint.
