Joel B. Pollack:
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday morning that he “can’t say whether anything was masked or unmasked properly” after visiting the White House on Friday to see the same the surveillance documents that committee chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) saw last month.
It was an unusually muted response from Schiff, and suggests that the documents substantiate Nunes’ claims that the Obama administration conducted surveillance on members of the Trump transition team, and unmasked the names of U.S. citizens improperly before the intelligence was disseminated throughout the government. He merely said that he did not “agree with the chairman’s characterization” of the documents, but did not elaborate or say Nunes was wrong.
Schiff also added that he remained upset that the documents had not been shared with him before Nunes shared them with the White House, and he raised suspicions about the way in which the White House had obtained the information.
In addition, Schiff backed off claims he made last month on MSNBC that there was “more than circumstantial” evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Liberal demacrats and the lapdog news media pals up to their dirty work as always when it comes to the demcrats who are out of office and out of the oval office
It is unraveling! They only need to threaten one person with prison time and the whole thing will unravel. There can only be one reason that Obama opened the sharing of intel to every intel agency and that is to try to hide the individuals who were leaking the information. Ben Rhodes is in this up to his ears. This is much more of a threat to the US government than any thing any administration previous to the Obama administration has ever done.
Here’s what we have: the investigation into Russian/Trump collusion has run its course. There was nothing there; never was, but when the left made the accusations, they could not be brushed off by the Republicans or they would persist forever… they probably will anyway, because that is the one thin thread the liberals have to cling to. So that’s done.
What Obama’s little gambit did was disgust someone to the point to reveal what he was doing. Finally. A co-conspirator with a modicum of a conscience. This could unravel the entire mess and reveal the extent to which the government was being turned into a socialist-supporting organ.
