What Adam Schiff just did to the U.S. military will make you sick
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is running point on the Democrats’ coup attempt to overthrow President Trump.
But Schiff is a controversial figure who is awash in scandal.
And what Adam Schiff just did to the U.S. military will make you sick.
Adam Schiff’s numerous controversies are taking a toll on the Democrats’ impeachment crusade.
Schiff lied about not being in contact with the so-called “whistleblower” before they filed their complaint against President Trump.
During his opening statement at a Congressional hearing where acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified, Schiff fabricated a conversation between Trump and the Ukrainian President to try to frame the President as guilty.
Finally, Schiff selectively leaked text messages from former Ukrainian special envoy Kurt Volker to paint the President’s actions in the most negative light possible instead of releasing the entire transcript of Volker’s testimony which would have helped prove the President’s innocence.
Now, Schiff is harassing the Defense Department.
House Democrats on Monday subpoenaed the Pentagon and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for documents related to a Trump administration decision to temporarily withhold military aid from Ukraine, according to a report.
Democrat chairmen of three committees leading an “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump sent letters to Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Acting OMB Director Russell Vought, according to the Hill. They have requested documents by October 15.
“The enclosed subpoena demands documents that are necessary for the committees to examine this sequence of these events and the reasons behind the White House’s decision to withhold critical military assistance to Ukraine that was appropriated by Congress to counter Russian aggression,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) wrote in the letter.
Last week, the Pentagon announced its general counsel had called on offices to save any documents related to the delay in aid to Ukraine in anticipation of any requests from Congress or the Pentagon inspector general.
Schiff’s checkered record running the House Intelligence Committee led 73 Republicans to sign a resolution demanding Schiff step down from running this kangaroo court.
The latest salvo in Presidential harassment — trying to drag the Pentagon into this fake scandal — will only add to the calls for Schiff to step down.
