Pure Politics: Adam Schiff Hid His Interactions With So-Called Whistleblower, Blocking Republicans From Questioning Key Figure

Remember, Nancy Pelosi has made Adam Schiff the point person for this impeachment inquisition. How will this work when people see that this is beyond partisan?

Adam Schiff Hid CIA Whistleblower Concerns from Republicans on Intelligence Committee

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) did not notify Republicans on the committee of an intelligence official who came to one of his aides with concerns about President Trump before filing an official whistleblower complaint, according to the top Republican on the committee.

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. (snip)

Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and chief of staff to the National Security Council, said Schiff broke committee rules in hiding that information from 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.

Of course he broke the rules, and of course this is a farce. The call was utterly normal. You can bet Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, and so on have all had similar calls. You can bet Schiff and Pelosi have made similar calls. But, this is the derangement that goes back to before Trump was even elected.

The New York Times on Wednesday reported that the so-called whistleblower, a CIA official, went with concerns about Trump to one of Schiff’s aides before he went to the inspector general to file a whistleblower complaint.

Indeed, the Times report revealed that Schiff’s aide had informed Schiff about the official’s concerns, and advised the whistleblower to get legal help and file an official whistleblower complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

Schiff had claimed previously that the committee did not speak to the whistleblower before the complaint was filed. His spokesperson later said he meant that he personally did not speak to the whistleblower.

It’s starting to sound like a conspiracy, the same one we’ve heard in various forms since Trump was elected and Dems yammered about impeaching him.

GOP demands ‘equal playing field’ ahead of former Ukraine envoy Volker’s scheduled testimony

House Republicans are demanding an “equal playing field” in the Democrat-led impeachment probe against President Trump after Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said ahead of Thursday’s scheduled testimony from former U.S. envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker that GOP members of the Foreign Affairs Committee will not be permitted to ask questions or have equal representation during the hearing.

Volker is scheduled to be the first key witness to testify as part of a probe into an anonymous whistleblower’s complaint about a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s family’s dealings in the country. The interview will be behind closed doors.

What are Democrats attempting to hide? They should remember that, much like setting a precedent of “impeachment inquiry” for tiny things because they don’t like the president, Republicans can now lock out Democrats during committee hearings.

In the letter addressed to Chairman Eliot L. Engel, D-N.Y., McCaul further argued that despite statements made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats, “there is not a “House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry” because the entire House has not voted on the matter.

Citing House Rules X and XI, McCaul said that until Congress members from both parties vote to create a special impeachment task force to carry out proceedings, “Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lacks the jurisdiction to investigate the Department of State’s conduct of United States foreign policy toward Ukraine. That prerogative belongs to our Members.”

Dems want to have their little investigation, but they aren’t will to actually go full bore. This is as legitimate as John Conyers’ basement hearings during the Bush years on the Downing Street Memo. Which failed as bigly as this phone call thing will.

    Let us also not forget that Adam Schiff is GEORGE SOROS’s son in law.

    The same man who funds left-wing activities in the USA while buying up coal stocks around the world and drilling for OIL off Brazil.

    The Democrats WONT VOTE ON AN IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION because that gives Republicans the right to question ALL witnesses and BRING IN THEIR OWN WITNESSES.

    Now if you watch the video I posted it will blow your mind and make you fighting mad as you listen to a former CIA analyst who went to jail AFTER BUSH refused to charge him with any crime for ratting out the CIA. Then OBAMA/BRENNAN immediately reopened his case and 3 years of 24/7 FBI survellance including wiretapping charged him with espionage which they then dropped but he was still sent to jail for 23 months.

    WHY? Brennan the key figure in framing TRUMP. CIA….any of this making sense yet since Trump has pissed off the 3 letter agencies with their attempts at making him cower by their presence.

    EVEN CHUCK SCHUMER IS ON TV TELLING RACHEL MADDOW that the CIA and FBI is going to go after Trump and frame him. ON TV. LIVE.

  2. Doom and Gloom says:

    “[Pence’s] aides were putting out yesterday that he had nothing to do with [the Ukraine call]. He didn’t know anything about it. He wasn’t aware of anything. And then the president’s aides put out that, not only was his guy on the call, he had the transcript within 24 hours — and he was given the briefing when he did go over to Poland as part of the mission to meet with Ukraine’s president,” Lockhart continued. “So it’s a bit of a circular firing squad right now at the White House as people try to position their principles and settle some scores in the process.”

    Why I think Trump will be removed from office. For one he is gone insane with his handling of this impeachment process and is the ONLY one fighting for himself. the Rest of the GOP including his own VP is hiding in the corner.

    Pence set up a Pence/Ryan server before the 2016 election believing Trump would drop out. Ryan quit the house in 2018 to focus on his new role of running with Pence after Trump is impeached.

    It is all lining up for the Democrats to get the 20 votes they need from the GOP to throw trump from office, and Run Pence/Ryan against whomever. They want trump gone as badly as the left does. He is a monkey wrench to the 3 letter agencies. He is a monkey wrench to the offshore bank accounts of all these senators.

    Trump will be impeached and the dems will delay it as long as possible to give Pence/Ryan as little time as possible to mount a challenge. The GOP actually wants it this way because of one over riding fact.

    Trump stands zero chance unless he calms himself and lets this witch hunt playout like the last one. and if this one fails. the CIA has another frame up ready to go.

    D&G typed: “Let us also not forget that Adam Schiff is GEORGE SOROS’s son in law.” Which
    charitably is a LIE. This is what the right-wing media does when cornered. But D&G can’t even get that lie right, as the right-wing fake news engine has created a Schiff sister who is Soros daughter-in-law! Read on…

    Adam Schiff married Eve Sanderson in 1995, (yes, Adam and Eve) and she is unrelated to George Soros.

    A woman named Melissa Robin Schiff married Robert Soros, the son of George Soros, in 1992. However, she is not Congressman Schiff’s sister. Melissa Schiff’s parents are Marlene and Haskel.

    Adam Schiff, on the other hand, was born to Sherry and Ed Schiff. The California congressman also has a brother named Daniel. Schiff does not have a sister. He and Melissa Schiff are not related.

    TEACH typed: “The call was utterly normal. You can bet Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, and so on have all had similar calls. You can bet Schiff and Pelosi have made similar calls.”

    Do you have evidence that the other US Presidents and officials called foreign leaders wanting to trade arms/cash for “dirt” on a political opponent? Sure Bush II lied about Iraq, and Reagan lied about illegally funneling arms to Iran and money to the Contras, and neither were impeached. So there is precedent.

    Trump admitted his violations, and has made no bones about wanting to bugger US elections with help from foreign agents.

      a subject he knows all too well.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      Ahh Elwood you missed the entire point of the post. I hoped you would point out the LIE. Unfortunately the only lies you are willing to point out are ones that pertain to your political beliefs while endorsing other lies that are politically expedient.

      I can say something. If it is repeated often enough it becomes the Truth even if it is a LIE.

      This is what the Democrats and the MSM are doing to Trump with Collusion and now Ukraine and if that doesnt work believe me they have another frame up ready to go.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        One lie at a time please. Are you admitting that Adam Schiff is not related to George Soros? Why would you promulgate such a lie? What else do you lie about?

        We understand why you wish to change the subject.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      NO we dont.

      WHY?

      Watch the tape from Jimmy Dore interviewing the whistleblower who exposed water boarding under Bush. The same whistel blower who knows this whole thing is a hoax and explains in great detail why.

      the same whistleblower who was not charged under Bush but IMMEDIATELY OBAMA AND BRENNAN put him under 24×7 FBI surveillance and wire taps and then charge him with espionage 3 years later only to drop the charges but still put him in jail

      Watch the tape and ask yourself why BRENNAN would do this to a guy who EXPOSED WATERBOARDING at the CIA but was an OBAMA hire and then helped to attempt to frame Trump in 2015-2016 with the fake dossier which would require tons of cia cooperation.

      Don;t you actually care why this is happening to Trump. Do you really believe Trump didnt know he was being recorded by the CIA and FBI during this call because he knows they hate him because he is exposing their corruption?

      Really you believe that?

    • formwiz says:

      Could be they’re still connected. All Schiff looks alike.

      Do you have evidence that the other US Presidents and officials called foreign leaders wanting to trade arms/cash for “dirt” on a political opponent?

      Well, there’s the Beast. Ukraine has evidence.

      Sure Bush II lied about Iraq, and Reagan lied about illegally funneling arms to Iran and money to the Contras, and neither were impeached. So there is precedent.

      2 ,2, 2 lies in 1.

      First, there were WMDs in Iraq. IS used them often

      Second, there was nothing illegal about what Reagan did. The Boland Amendment was an administrative Resolution. It did not have the weight of law.

      Trump admitted his violations, and has made no bones about wanting to bugger US elections with help from foreign agents.

      He said nothing of the kind; in fact, he told the media he was doing it back in May. Crickets.

      As for buggery, that seems to be your thing and it’s what the Beast tried to do with Ukraine.

      So that’s 3 lies and a mortal sin.

      Well, he’ll be there with the rest of the Lefties.

  4. Professor Hale says:

    Partisan political activism from inside the administration, is not a protected whistleblower activity. In fact, it is a prohibited activity.

  5. Kye says:

    Now Chris Matthews and the rest of the outrage mob are pushing to impeach Pence also. Since when is the vice president impeached along with the president? Since in reality it’s a coup not an impeachment that’s when.

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/democrats-ask-fbi-to-probe-womans-efforts-to-help-chinese-clients-gain-access-to-trump-events-11552946754

    Adam Schiff just had a lucky guess to pinpoint this woman out of all of the United States he knew to go after Cindy Yang. He is that smart..A US citizen born in China…How much you wanna bet he was calling China. I want to request his phone records for the year. Get me..How is it that he can investigate as the FBI, CIA etc..He has full power on that committee doesn’t he.
    ” her efforts to network with Mr. Trump and introduce members of the Chinese Communist Party to South Florida’s political scene, including by offering to sell access to events at Mr. Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.”

    Wow they are suddenly concerned with China now..

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      She wasn’t that hard to pick out, as she’s hardly kept a low profile. Li (Cindy) Yang and her “family” donated $60,000 to the Trump campaign and the Trump Victory PAC. She also has visited Mar a Lago several times and has been photographed with Trump, Trump Jr, and Eric. Yang used to own the nearby massage parlor that caught Patriots owner and Trump friend, Robert Kraft.

      So a former “madam” suddenly becomes prominent in GOP/RNC circles, including the US President, and starts donating large sums. Her new company, GY US Investments, advertises access to Trump and his family. It doesn’t take Dick Tracy to suspect she collects money from Chinese nationals and funnels some to the campaign and PACs.

      Shouldn’t the gov’t be concerned with foreign countries funneling money into US elections? That’s why the Ukrainian associates of Trump’s lawyer were arrested fleeing the US.

      • formwiz says:

        Tracy is yet another cartoon character, so your suspicions are laughable.

        Any proof? Oh, yeah, you’re the one who goes on “consensus”. So, how many of your little voices said guilty?

        Shouldn’t the gov’t be concerned with foreign countries funneling money into US elections?

        Lessee now, how many Demos have been mobbed up with the Ukranians? Zippy, Gropin’ Joe, Lurch, the Hildabeast…
