Schiff’s Obsession With President Trump Is Dangerous To U.S. National Security
It’s another witch hunt and Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff doesn’t mind wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on it like he has over the past four years.
The important aspect of this whole upside down scenario is that Schiff doesn’t really care about the national security issues that could potentially pose a significant danger to the United States or its citizens. He cares about one thing and one thing only: President Donald Trump.
Schiff – and those like him – are obsessed with Trump. In a way, he reminds me of the fictional character Captain Ahab in Herman Melville‘s Moby-Dick, written in 1851. Schiff is the captain of the committee, not the whaling ship. But just as importantly, Schiff is on a voyage to destroy President Trump, much like Ahab was obsessed over Moby Dick.
Schiff like Ahab is willing to lose almost anything to get Trump and in the end he just might allow the political whale to drag him to the depths of Washington D.C.’s swamp.
It is a tale often told in many novels and Schiff just happens to be that character. That Character. But we shouldn’t let him drag American taxpayer dollars and security down with him. Schiff has repeatedly lied about Trump and lied to the American people about the so-called evidence he had regarding the now-debunked Russia conspiracy.
Schiff, however, has never been held accountable for the numerous hoaxes he has perpetrated from the committee charged with oversight of our nation’s secrets, covert agencies and the overall security of the country from enemy states. Those enemy states include China, Russia, among many other nations that are using the chaos and divisions in our nation to their benefit.
I remember this May, when the House released 57 transcripts of interviews with former senior Obama officials and FBI regarding Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and the bureau’s investigation into Trump?
Lawmakers began the probe into the FBI’s handling of the investigation into the Trump campaign in January 2017. At the time, the House Committee on Intelligence was Chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes, and he worked diligently with investigators to uncover massive amounts of evidence that revealed malfeasance in the FBI, led to the firing of senior bureau officials and then was reinforced by investigations conducted by the DOJ’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Horowitz was not a Trump appointee but was appointed under President Obama.
Throughout all those years and despite numerous findings showing there was no collusion between Trump and Russia, including a final March, 2018 report, it didn’t matter.
Schiff continued to promise the American people that he had evidence proving the opposite.
In 2019, even after investigations cleared Trump, Schiff continued to lie to the American people. He said on ABC News at the time that there was evidence Trump conspired with Russia, saying there was “ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”
“The obstruction of justice in particular in this case is far worse than anything that Richard Nixon did,” Schiff said. “I would say in every way this is more significant than Watergate…And the fact that a candidate for president and now president of the United States would not only not stand up and resist Russian interference in our election but would welcome it goes well beyond anything Nixon did.“
Where is the evidence? It was never there and he knew it. It didn’t matter because Schiff was using his position to target Trump.
Even though the March 2018 report found no evidence the Trump campaign conspired with Moscow, Schiff refused to allow those transcripts to go public until the White House threatened to release them first.
When that died down Schiff shifted to the Ukraine conspiracy, throwing his alleged whistleblowers into the spotlight, like Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman who used his position, along with others at the National Security Counsel to spy on Trump’s phone calls. Those classified phone calls, particularly the one with the Ukraine president, became the focal point of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, and Schiff’s impeachment parade against Trump.
It rightfully failed and the Senate exonerated Trump but it tore the nation even further apart.
Moreover, millions of taxpayer dollars and time have been wasted by Schiff and his committee, which should be focused on real enemy states, actors and important oversight duties.
Schiff didn’t care then and now he doesn’t now, as he’s now pushing a new hoax during an election year and hoping that he can do whatever he can to tear Trump’s administration apart. He will do so even at the peril of the nation.
Schiff, like many Democrats and never-Trumpers, hates Trump more than they love America.
This new whistleblower is allegedly connected reporting all of his concerns to Schiff about issues with the Department of Homeland Security. He alleges that a reprisal complaint lists “serious wrongdoing” and an effort to hide reports about Russian interference into U.S. elections.
Once again, Russia, Russia, Russia.
“The whistleblower retaliation complaint filed by former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically,” Schiff said in a letter to Brian Murphy’s attorney. “This puts our nation and its security at grave risk.”
Really Schiff? A whistleblowers politicized allegations is putting our nation at risk? Our nation is at risk because you, along with your cronies in the Democratic party, have failed to do anything for the American people beyond your one-track Trump mind.
Think about it – beyond Trump. – has Schiff done anything that sticks out? Have there been any revelations that have shown his leadership in the Committee has been exemplary and that he’s doing the best for the American people?
What about COVID-19 “China’s virus” and how China, not Trump, failed the nation. What about Russia’s real interference in the 2016 election by leaking disinformation to former British spy Christopher Steele, who was using DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign funds to pay for his Russian sources. I think that’s something that we should look into.
What about the numerous lied that former CIA Director John Brennan, along with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress?
What about the current state of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other extremists groups that are still targeting the United States?
What about Schiff’s own lies? Will Schiff ever actually be held accountable for those lies and for the wasted tax dollars spent chasing unicorns around the D.C. swamp to target Trump?
I doubt it. But remember what kind of person Schiff really is and realize it won’t be long before Schiff sinks his own ship.
