Excitable Adam Schiff Is Very Concerned Over Intelligence Politicization or Something

Hey, remember when he used to want all the information to be put out? Good times

House Intelligence chief warns spy agencies of Trump ‘politicization’

U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday warned the FBI and U.S. spy agencies that President Donald Trump is trying to “politicize” U.S. intelligence and law enforcement.

Schiff criticized Trump for giving Attorney General William Barr “sweeping” powers to declassify or downgrade the secrecy of government reporting while conducting what the Justice Department is calling a “review” of “intelligence activities” related to the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign.

In letters to agency heads, Schiff said May 23 orders from Trump telling them to help with Barr’s review was “an effort by the President and the Attorney General to politicize the IC (intelligence community) and law enforcement, to deligitimize a well-founded investigation into the President, and to attack the President’s political enemies.”

Schiff sent his letters, which Reuters saw, to the directors of National Intelligence, the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency.

He asked them to keep his panel informed about Barr’s review; provide documents produced for it; and tell the committee about any moves by Barr to declassify material over agency objections.

In other words, he’s concerned like hell that the whole Russia Russia Russia thing will backfire on his Party, and he wants to find some talking points scapegoats for when the reality is exposed in the months to come, and the 1 1/2 till the general election

    sweatin’ bullets, he is.

    They all are Bob M. When you hold a coup you gotta kill the king. All these commie sympathizers, leftist snobs and elites are looking at hard time. The Fake News also needs a thorough enema. Just gutting the Deep State isn’t enough. We need to make sure this never happens again.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      There was no attempted coup, you excitable snowflake, you. We have a legal procedure (or two) for eliminating a president who has committed high crimes or misdemeanors – impeachment. Criticizing or investigating a president isn’t a coup. Calling criticism a coup is what a fascist would do.

      Was the impeachment of President Clinton an attempted coup?

      Using the power of the state to imprison one’s opposition is what any fascist would do.

      Attack the media that criticizes you. Get rid of those snobs and elites that make you feel inferior. That’s what any fascist would do.

      The moment trump sends his thugs to arrest members of Congress or FBI members is when the shit hits the fan.

      • Kye says:

        It’s an attempted coup Elwood and it’s still going on. The entire charade was a Hillary plot with the help of Obama and their operatives in the Deep State and Fake Media. I don’t have enough evidence to prove they did do it yet but I also can’t prove they didn’t do it. So according to leftist commie rules they are guilty. It’s treason pure and simple. I don’t know what “thugs” Trump could send after the FBI since they are the official government gestapo and Obama’s bought and paid traitors but the feeling in America right now is we can’t trust federal law enforcement. And we can’t! That’s all the lefts fault. They are destroying the Republic. Traitors one and all. All they have is lies and hate.

        And it’s still okay to be white.

        (In case you haven’t noticed I’m deliberately trolling Elwood but by the time he got to here he already was shaking with spittle shooting everywhere.)

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Coup?

          You keep using that word, I do not think that word means what you think it means.

          • Kye says:

            A coup is when one party or group seizes power illegally from another. So I obviously DO know what that word means. Do you know what an attempted coup is? What the Democrats have been engaged in for almost three years, that’s what. Sedition. Treason.

            It’s okay to be white, Christian and male. It’s not okay to attempt a coup.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Kye,

            You’re wrong, of course. There was, there is, no attempted coup. A coup is illegal. There have been, and continue to be, perfectly legal investigations. Even if trump is impeached and tossed out, his legal successor is another, even more conservative Republican, Mike Pence.

            Were the Iran-Contra investigations an attempted coup?

            Was the impeachment of President Clinton an attempted coup?

            You excitable nuConserva-fascists like to toss around inflammatory terms like coup, treason, Deep State, sedition and traitors because you are basically desperate anti-democracy fascists.

            It’s okay to be white, Christian and male. It’s also OK to be non-white, Muslim, atheist, male, female, gay or transgender.

            The conserva-fascists want an exclusive, white, Christian, conservative homeland.

        LOL! Wasn’t it you who wrote:

        trump will be indicted the moment he is no longer president, unless he cuts a deal.

        trump may roll the dice. If he loses the election, he will have from Nov to Jan 2020 to cut a deal.

        ‘Twould appear that you see nothing fascistic at all about “Using the power of the state to imprison one’s opposition,” when one’s opposition is Donald Trump.

        I have to ask: since you are just so concerned about legal punishment for someone you claim has broken the law, why would that concern not extend to members of the previous Administration who may or may not have broken the law in their efforts to prevent Mr Trump from winning an election that he couldn’t win in the first place? https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

        Of course, you also told us:

        tRump will not be president at the end of 2019. Believe me. Mark my word.

        Any criminal investigation of the Obama Administration will take more than seven months, so why are you worried; after all, you believe that Mr Trump won’t be President seven months from now! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_wacko.gif

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mr. 10 to the minus 12,

          By all means, trump should have his “people” investigate those he believes broke the law. Let the system work.

          Would trump “cheat” the system. Well, of course he would.

          trump will be indicted for obstruction of justice unless he cuts a deal and/or is pardoned. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

          What’s your issue again?

            I guess that we’ll see if our esteemed host’s commenting will allow my 1012 to work. I suppose I should congratulate you on knowing that!

            By all means, trump should have his “people” investigate those he believes broke the law. Let the system work.

            But, but, but, I thought you said that jailing one’s political opponents was fascist?

            trump will be indicted for obstruction of justice unless he cuts a deal and/or is pardoned.

            A little less specific than your previous statement that he’d be “indicted the moment he is no longer president.” I guess that I’ll be looking for you to ask about this come January 20, 2025.

          • I turned off the hardcore moderation requirements a few weeks ago, figure the crazy person isn’t coming back at this point.

    Shitting peach pits.

  4. Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

    Gowdy pivoted to critiquing the media alongside Schiff, reminding viewers that both were completely fine with leaks of classified information when Trump was the target, but are suddenly verklempt over the idea that material reflecting poorly on the Obama administration might be released.

    “President Obama can and must declassify as much as possible about Russia hacking our elections,” Schiff announced in the winter of 2016. “Rest assured, Trump won’t.”

    Now that the President is actually taking action, Schiff is acting like, well … ‘an overtly ambitious partisan wannabe senator.”
