On Thursday, the former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said that Rep. Adam Schiff must lose his security clearance. His calls followed the political fallout from Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of Mueller’s “principal conclusions” on the Russia investigation in an interview on Fox Business Thursday. Chaffetz told Trish Regan that…
“I think what [Rep. Schiff] should do is lose his security clearance, without a security clearance, he can’t serve on the committee. To lose the trust, albeit on the other side of the aisle, I have never seen. Look at the way the committee operated before, with [Democratic Congressman and former House Intel Committee Chair] Dutch Ruppersberger. We have never had this problem,” Chaffetz said, adding, “We don’t have these problems except with Adam Schiff. I don’t think he should be the Chairman, and I don’t think he should have a security clearance.”
Already, on Thursday, House Intelligence Committee Republicans unveiled during Thursday’s hearing, a letter signed by all Republicans on the committee asking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to step down as chairman of the Committee! It was announced by Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) announced and read the letter to Schiff during the hearing! He said…
Your willingness to continue to promote a demonstrably false narrative is alarming. The findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions, and have exposed you as having abused your position to knowingly promote false information.
Having damaged the integrity of this committee, and having undermined the faith in the United States government and its institutions, your actions both past and present are incompatible with your duty as chairman of this committee, which alone in the House of Representatives has the obligation and authority to provide effective oversight of the U.S. intelligence community.
As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as Chairman of this Committee.
Chairman Schiff responded in a trembling voice, insisting that there were signs of collusion, refusing to yield the right to speak to Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), who wanted to rebut his response.
Then, as the House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff became more frustrated, he then turned off the microphone for Representative Mike Turner (R-OH), who asked to use his allotted time to refute the chairman’s baseless and openly false claims against President Trump! Schiff began arguing with Turner, as Schiff refused to let him speak, and wouldn’t let Turner criticize him! When Representative Turner continued to demand his allotted time to speak, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff denied his right, stating that he wouldn’t let him use his time to criticize his leadership! Then, Schiff cut off his microphone, as to silence Rep. Turners frustrations!
In addition, as anger and frustration grows against Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) who serves as the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, twenty House Republicans have all banned together and signed a letter calling on the corrupt leader who has been deemed a ‘leaker and liar’ to resign from the committee in their opening remarks.
Then, Chairman Adam Schiff followed it up with additional accusations against President Trump, and Russia, stating the Trump was working with the Russians before the election, and that Trump was working with Putin to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the election. Sadly, as the Democrats control the House of Representatives, they no longer allow dialogue, but instead demand communist allegiance! Ultimately, in the end, Rep. Adam Schiff has become the modern-day Joseph McCarthy, as he has turned Hillary Clinton and Obama Administration opposition research, into the ‘New Red Scare’, as Shiff and his fellow co-conspirators will do anything to remove a duly-elected sitting President, as they try to implement one of the most egregious coup’s in American history!
Now, regardless of the fact that Mueller concluded in his investigation that President Trump did not collude with Russians, the Democrats, with the House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) at the helm, continue to spread the BIG LIE that Trump colluded with the Russians despite never actually providing evidence to back up his outrageous claims.
In fact, Adam Schiff told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, after the findings came out, that there is “significant and incriminating evidence” that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, despite the fact that Mueller concluded his investigation with no new indictments. Combine that with the fact that Schiff reportedly leaked portions of Donald Trump Jr.’s closed-door testimony to CNN, which is a stunning ethics violation.
In the end, it has not only led to calls for Schiff’s resignation from one of the most prestigious and powerful positions in the House, but it has rightfully and likely led to questions over him having his security clearance revoked! After all, America should never have a serial liar and leaker of intelligence at the helm of the Intelligence Committee!
