“As they say in the world of intelligence, Schiff was operating at his usual level of veracity.” Would we really expect anything different from him? Or from any Democrat actually?
Prior to the declassification of the Nunes memo last week, Adam Schiff, who had read the document, railed endlessly about how reckless and dangerous its release would be. It would compromise our national security he claimed. In fact, “sources and methods” became a familiar term to many of us.
Finally, the memo was made public and after all of the rhetoric from Schiff and others on the left, the memo did not contain any sources and methods.
Predictably, not a soul from the mainstream media called Democrats out on this point. Thank goodness we have journalists like Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who is unafraid to ask the questions that need to be asked and presses his thumb when he’s being lied to.
Tucker Carlson debated Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and asked why the Democrats had lied about the contents of the memo.
Swalwell was double talking and spinning just as fast as he possibly could and actually accused Tucker of jeopardizing national security while his demeanor remained quite calm and in his own mind, I suppose, he thought he was making sense.
I’ve never seen anything like it. The exchange, presented in the video below, would almost be amusing if America’s future were not at stake.
On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release the Democrat’s Minority memo, a rebuttal to the Nunes memo, which has been sent over to the White House for review.
Apparently, those who have seen it are saying it is a ten-page memo intentionally filled with sources and methods.
This means that it will either have to be heavily redacted or not released at all. Either scenario will provide Schiff with new material with which to criticize the President.
The New York Times reports:
“President Trump is expected to allow that memo to be made public, but is likely to redact parts of it, people close to the White House said.
That decision is certain to anger Democratic lawmakers, who expressed concern on Tuesday that the president would edit the memo — not for national security reasons but to remove parts that he viewed as politically embarrassing or damaging.”
It appears that Rep. Adam Schiff, whom we’ve seen a little too much of lately, has deliberately tried to “trap Trump.”
The President is left with two bad options.
In the meantime, Schiff has already begun laying the groundwork for his intended attacks.
Well aware that the memo will have to be redacted if it is released, he has told CNN (please see video below) he wants to make sure the White House “does not redact our memo for political purposes.”
He’s concerned about the White House making political redactions – not to protect sources, but to block information that might be unfavorable to the president.
When questioned about the claim that the memo intentionally contained sources and methods, a Schiff aide referred Fox News back to those comments.
Schiff is asked the obvious question which is why don’t they simply release the transcripts of Andrew McCabe’s December 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.
He answered that he was concerned about releasing selective testimony because people might reach incorrect conclusions.
Hey Adam Schiff, why don’t you release the full transcript?
