Leaks from the nation’s capital are not a new phenomenon by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s become an incredibly serious problem in the era of President Donald Trump.
Since Trump entered office, there have been a countless number of leaks of highly sensitive info that should have never seen the light of day. The overwhelming majority of those leaks are designed to advance the anti-Trump narrative that the mainstream media is consumed with.
As has been the case with many other things due to Democrats completely overplaying their hands, the jig may finally be up on that.
The Political Insider shares the details.
In an effort to counter the explosive GOP memo revealing FISA court abuses and a lack of integrity at the top of the FBI and Department of Justice, Rep. Adam Schiff may have released classified information of his own.
Schiff, alongside other prominent Democrats, has denounced the release of the memo, which contains shocking information about surveillance abuse committed against the Trump campaign.
The President referred to the memo as a “disgrace,” adding, “a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves.”
Laughably, Schiff has been all over the airwaves pontificating that the release of a memo that exposes the witch hunt surrounding Trump for all to see is damaging to our country.
He manages to do this with a straight face and neglects to draw any attention to the fact that he gives nary a thought to the consequences of his words while he’s espousing his various conspiracy theories.
Schiff, the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, couldn’t contain his exuberance in countering the memo, and in doing so, may have let slip some classified information of his own.
The top Democrat claims the political bias of the man behind a dossier that was used as grounds to spy on the Trump team was disclosed to the FISA court judges, a contradiction in what was reported in the memo.
Schiff argued that the memo’s assertion is “not accurate,” saying the court was aware that there was a “likely political motivation” behind the dossier.
The Law & Crime blog, a site run by legal correspondent Dan Abrams, believes Schiff made a big mistake in making that claim.
It’s not the first mistake that Schiff has made by any stretch of the imagination. Despite that, he’s been completely unscathed.
The mainstream press totally gives him a pass each and every time he unnecessarily stirs the pot.
Quite frankly, it’s getting to the point that one almost feels embarrassed for a Democratic Party that feels that he is somehow a believable mouthpiece.
Form a bottom line perspective, Schiff will continue to implode in spectacular fashion while the press pays zero attention to it. Unfortunately for the press, the same can’t be said for a commander-in-chief that’s not going to put up with their nonsense.
Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!
