Adam Schiff’s paying a huge price for not investigating a huge Obama crime.
He’s completely lost control of the House Intelligence Committee.
Adam Schiff’s got a scandal on his hands for a sloppy Obama cover-up.
It’s quite convenient for the Democrats that impeachment news dominated the press right as Obama got in big trouble for meddling in the 2016 election.
They couldn’t have planned it better if they had tried.
Democrats tried to impeach Donald Trump for asking for an investigation into Joe Biden’s connections to Burisma while ignoring the fact that the FBI, under Obama’s leadership, lied to the Justice Department so that they could get warrants to spy on Trump’s campaign.
It’s a big deal if Obama broke the law to make a politically motivated attack against Trump.
Adam Schiff might not like Trump personally, but long-term it is to the benefit of all Americans that those in power don’t use the FBI to keep tabs on all their political enemies.
Yet Schiff is more concerned with using his position as head of the House Intelligence Committee to promote Democrats, whatever the cost.
This has caused Republicans on the committee to boycott his hearing.
According to the Daily Caller:
In a rare move, the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee boycotted a hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning, saying that Chairman Adam Schiff has “strayed” from conducting business relevant to the panel, including by failing to hold a hearing over the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FBI abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
“Under your chairmanship, the House Intelligence Committee has strayed far from its mandate of overseeing the Intelligence Community,” the Republicans wrote in a letter to Democrats obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation just before the start of a hearing for the Strategic Technology and Advanced Research Subcommittee.
“In fact, we have gone months at a time in which we’ve hardly held any oversight-related briefings or hearings at all,” they wrote.
All nine Republicans on the panel signed the letter to Schiff, a California Democrat.
“Until the Committee prioritizes oversight activities related to urgent and critical concerns, Republican Members cannot support distractions from our core responsibilities,” they wrote.
The Justice Department inspector general’s report was released on Dec. 9, 2019 yet instead of finding time to do a hearing on a Trump scandal, Adam Schiff wants to hear about artificial intelligence even though there are other committees that would be able to deal with it.
The Democrats have bashed Trump constantly without basis for years and yet they aren’t willing to look into it at all when it’s Obama who is out of line.
If the same information had come out about Trump, there’s no question that Adam Schiff would have blocked off another month to hear every detail and impeach him again.
It’s good that that Republicans are taking a stand against Adam Schiff’s awful biased behavior that’s trying to keep Democrats from being held accountable for their crimes.
