Schiff Moves Forward on Trump Investigation, Circumventing Mueller
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff recruited former White House National Security Council Staffer Abigail Grace to investigate President Trump’s finances, Russia and foreign ties. According to Sara Carter, who spoke with the John Gibson Show Monday, the problem is going to be the information NSC staffers have access to.
Obama Administration Holdovers
They continue to work in this administration even though some of them vehemently oppose this president, said Carter
According to Carter, current and former administration officials are working to draft a cease and desist letter to prevent information from leaking. Further, Carter explained Grace and other NSC staffers are privy to private information from the executive office. Carter said Schiff plans to hire more NSC staffers to investigate Trump. Many of these staffers were Obama administration holdovers.
“They continue to work in this administration even though some of them vehemently oppose this president,” said Carter.
Schiff Circumvents Mueller
Schiff appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday where he expressed concern with Trump’s ties to the Kremlin. When pressed on the credibility of Mueller’s findings Schiff said, “We need to find it ourselves”.
“When people say there is no collusion they must have a different word for the kind of corrupt coordination of effort between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” said Schiff.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) tweeted last week that Schiff met with Glenn Simpson who worked on the bought and paid for Trump dossier and did not disclose the meeting. Jordan tweeted, “REMEMBER: Schiff demanded that Nunes be investigated for, meeting with administration officials…. Double standard?”
-Meets with Glenn Simpson, who hired Nellie Ohr and Chris Steele and paid for the Dossier
-Doesn’t disclose the meeting
-Says there’s nothing wrong
REMEMBER: Schiff demanded that Nunes be investigated for meeting with administration officials.
