Schiff Vows to ‘Compel’ Trump Admin to Keep Giving Democrats Classified Information so They Can Keep Leaking It
After the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, informed Congress it would no longer get in-person briefings about election meddling because they keep leaking classified information, the person many suspect of being the chief leaker came forward. California Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) vowed to “compel” Director Ratcliffe to answer questions behind closed doors that allow unscrupulous politicians to undermine national security.
“When I went through confirmation, people watched that, they heard me make a couple of promises,” Ratcliffe reportedly said. “One of them was to always follow the law. The other was that I would do everything I could to protect the unauthorized disclosure of classified information, allowing people to leak it for political purposes. The action that I announced yesterday is entirely consistent with that.”
Schiff earned nicknames such as “Pencil Neck” and “Shifty Schiff” during the Russian Collusion witch hunt and phony Ukraine Gate “quid pro quo” for orchestrating leaks to the left-leaning media. In what can only be ranked among the worst Washington, D.C., political theater, Schiff has gone on the record complaining that the election integrity is better served by members of Congress continuing to leak national security information.
“Unless the goal is not to allow members of Congress, the representatives of the American people, to ask questions. You can state things in a written report that are not correct, and you can’t be subject to questioning about it,” Schiff reportedly said on CNN. “When you can hide behind documents or withhold documents and not have to answer questions about it, it lets you conceal the truth.”
CNN — widely considered the leader in fake news — routinely gives some of the least credible political figures a platform to disseminate false and misleading information. The fake news network told voters that then candidate Donald Trump had no pathway to winning the White House in 2016. Since then, CNN has trolled out the likes of disgraced FBI chief James Comey, and anti-Trump lawyer Michael Avenatti, who has been convicted of extortion.
After a recent briefing of the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Schiff, the fake news and establishment media quickly published select information that mischaracterized Ratcliffe’s testimony. It was abundantly apparent that Democrats had leaked the classified information because it was twisted to appear as if Russia posed the greatest threat. That narrative synched perfectly with one Schiff continues to falsely push, even after President Trump was fully vindicated.
“Within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes to create a narrative that simply isn’t true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China,” Ratcliffe reportedly said. “I don’t mean to minimize Russia. They are a serious national security threat, but day in, day out, the threats that we face from China are significantly greater. Anyone who says otherwise is just politicizing intelligence for their own narrative.”
Experts in the intelligence community firmly assert that the Chinese Communist Party has been working feverishly to help Joe Biden win the November election. Ever since Nancy Pelosi dog whistled to China in an interview that Biden would be better for them, they have been trying to interfere.
During the previous administration, Biden tried to broker a trade deal that heavily favored China. His son, Hunter, was later showered with $1.5 billion in corporate investment that helped make him wealthy. China also appears to be investing heavily in its election meddling efforts after Pres. Trump beat them in a trade war and could decouple the U.S. economy from the communists completely.
Bad actors such as Schiff will stop at nothing to secure power and helping China to cheat American voters is on the table.
