Shifty Schiff slipped up – now it’s time for him to pay the piper!
Rep. Adam Schiff has been leading the charge against Donald Trump, but he made a big mistake.
He is overseeing the hearings that are supposed to find dirt on Trump. Leading to his impeachment, of course. That’s not how this is supposed to work.
But there is more than a little concern over what Schiff knew before all this happened. It seems like he might have played a bigger role than he let on.
And he might have lied about it to the country.
Schiff claims he didn’t know about the whistleblower until after it hit the news. Yet this week, his own committee admitted the whistleblower was in contact with them.
That casts serious doubt on what Schiff said.
Now a former CIA officer says the consequences for Schiff are clear.
From Daily Caller:
Former CIA officer and National Security Council Chief of Staff Fred Fleitz tweeted Tuesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “broke committee rules” and “should recuse himself” from any impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump…
Check out the searing tweet:
“Schiff knew about the CIA whistleblower in advance — way in advance. Before he even filed his complaint. This is a much bigger scandal than people realize. At a minimum, Schiff should recuse himself from this impeachment inquiry.”
Why should Schiff be required to step down? Because he broke committee rules. Fleitz said Schiff knew way in advance about the whistleblower’s intentions. Even before the complaint was filed.
He was supposed to share this information with the other side, but instead he hid it.
Calling it a scandal, Fleitz demands Schiff should remove himself from all future inquiries.
This is serious because if Schiff did know—he could have played a part in this entire charade.
We have already learned that the whistleblower was a partisan whose complaint is riddled with mistakes because it was secondhand. There is evidence to suggest it was crafted with the intention of impeaching Trump.
Stories point to Pelosi and Schiff knowing ahead of time. Trump himself accuses Schiff of helping write the complaint.
If all that’s true, Schiff is in big trouble. He might have colluded to spread these accusations to impeach a sitting president.
That’s much worse than what he’s accusing Trump of.
Fleitz says at the very least he should not be allowed to lead this inquiry. I say he should face much more.
SHARE if you think the Democrats should remove Schiff for what he’s done!
