Schiff’s Obsession With President Trump Is Dangerous To U.S. National Security

Published

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.

Cuomo says he’ll ‘fully cooperate’ with NY AG’s review of sexual harassment claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s independent review into sexual harassment allegations made against the currently scandal-ridden governor, saying, “I fully support a woman’s right to come forward.”

Last Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, who served in his administration for over three years, accused Cuomo of suggesting to her on a 2017 flight that they play strip poker, inappropriate touching, and kissing her on the lips without her consent.

Following Boylan’s accusations, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett alleged the governor indicated interest in having an affair with her while she was serving in his administration as a health policy adviser. In a Saturday New York Times report, Bennett told the newspaper that Cuomo asked her if she had “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

At Wednesday’s press briefing, the Empire State governor addressed the accusations leveled against him over the past seven days by three women and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) independent review into those claims, which she announced on Monday was formally proceeding.

“As you probably know, the attorney general is doing an independent review, and I will fully cooperate with that review,” Cuomo said at the beginning of his statement. “Now, the lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until that review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer, too. But, I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this.”

“First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward,” the governor began. “And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly I am embarrassed by it, and that’s not easy to say. But that’s the truth.”

This echoes what Cuomo said in a Sunday statement about the allegations, in which he stated he “may have been insensitive” during his tenure but charged his accusers of misinterpreting his actions, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation… I am truly sorry about that.”

During his Wednesday remarks, Cuomo iterated “I never touched anyone inappropriately,” repeated that sentence, then said “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable” and repeated that one too.

“And I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do,” he continued. “I ask the people of this state to wait for the facts from the attorney general’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts, please, before forming an opinion.”

“I also want you to know that I have learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people, and I’ve learned an important lesson,” the governor said at the end of his statement. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone, I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience.”

Amid Boylan and Bennett’s allegations, another report of Cuomo sexually harassing a woman has cropped up. On Monday, a woman named Anna Ruch accused the governor of placing his hands on her cheeks—without her consent—at a 2019 wedding reception and asking if he could kiss her. A photograph of the two together at the event has also been circulating on social media.

Asked at Wednesday’s briefing about the pictures that have resurfaced of him being touchy with people, particularly that of him and Ruch, the governor claimed that it is his way of greeting people.

“I understand the opinion of—and feelings of—Ms. Ruch,” Cuomo said. “You can find hundreds of pictures of me making the same gesture with hundreds of people—women, children, men, etc. You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people. […] It is my usual and customary way of greeting.”

Moreover, the governor said that his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, would do the same thing.

“By the way, it was my father’s way of greeting people,” Cuomo said, explaining, “You’re the governor of the state, you want people to feel comfortable, you want to reach out to them.”

He also mentioned that he kisses and hugs legislators and noted that at an event in Queens the other day he hugged pastors and state assembly members.

Furthermore, the governor said that his intent “doesn’t matter,” saying, “What it matters is if anybody was offended by it.”

“But if they were offended by it, then it was wrong,” he added, going on to say that if they were offended or hurt by it, he apologizes.
