The deepest, darkest secrets of the Obama administration are about to be laid bare.
This is bad news for Barack Obama and the entire Democrat Party.
And that’s because Adam Schiff waved the white flag of surrender in the face of this ultimatum.
For over one year, Adam Schiff fought tooth and nail to keep 53 witness transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation under lock and key.
Republicans pushed and pushed for the public release of these transcripts to show once and for all that the Russia collusion probe was a politically motivated witch hunt that turned up nothing.
Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell finally had enough and issued Adam Schiff an ultimatum.
“I urge you to honor your previous public statements, and your committee’s unanimous vote on this matter, to release all 53 cleared transcripts to Members of Congress and the American public as soon as possible,” Grenell wrote to Schiff.
Grenell politely – but firmly – drew a red line with Schiff by informing Schiff that if Schiff didn’t release these transcripts, Grenell would make them public himself.
“I am also willing to release the transcripts directly from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as to ensure we comply with the unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts,” Grenell added.
Adam Schiff knew he was cornered and quickly surrendered.
One of Schiff’s spokesmen tried to put the best face possible on Schiff’s defeat and claimed Schiff was happy to release the transcripts by falsely claiming that it was the White House responsible for the delay.
“After more than a year of unnecessary delay, the ODNI has finally concluded its protracted classification review of the Committee’s transcripts, and it also appears the White House has now abandoned its improper insistence on reviewing key transcripts, which the Committee appropriately rejected,” an Intelligence Committee spokesman baselessly claimed.
When the transcripts were made public, it was easy to see why Schiff wanted to keep them buried.
Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper would often claim on CNN that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
At one point, Clapper told CNN’s audience that former KGB agent, Russian President Vladimir Putin “knows how to handle an asset.”
Clapper can lie to fake news CNN’s audience.
That isn’t a crime.
But lying to Congress is.
When the House Intelligence Committee forced Clapper under oath, Clapper admitted he never once saw one single shred of evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
“I never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting/ conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election. That’s not to say that there weren’t concerns about the evidence we were seeing, anecdotal evidence,” Clapper testified.
Acting Director Grenell forcing Adam Schiff to make these transcripts public was a great act of patriotism and public service.
The American people got to see Adam Schiff was a bald-faced liar for spending three years on fake news CNN and MSNBC claiming he had seen evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.
