Oddly, Democrats don’t see the irony here


Schiff reacts to Trump DOJ secretly seizing data from House Democrats

Independent Journal Review reports that Adam Schiff reacted wildly to news that the Trump DOJ seized data from House Democrats.

AdamFullOfSchiffHouse Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is speaking out after a report revealed the Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) seized records from at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee.

The New York Times reported that while the DOJ was investigating leaks of classified information during the Trump administration, “prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. One was a minor.”

Records of at least a dozen people tied to the House Intelligence Committee were seized in 2017 and early 2018, according to the report. This includes Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who is a member of the committee, according to the Times. They were told about it last month.

The Times also reports, “As the years wore on, some officials argued in meetings that charges were becoming less realistic, former Justice Department officials said: They lacked strong evidence, and a jury might not care about information reported years earlier.”

Appearing on “The Rachel Maddow Show” Thursday evening, Schiff said, “It’s really norm within norm within norm being broken here. The first, most important norm post-Watergate is the president of the United States does not get involved in particular cases at the Justice Department. He doesn’t urge the Justice Department to investigate particular people. That’s one very important norm.”

Oddly, Adam Schiff did not think it wrong to take and publish Representative Nunes’ phone records

It was not that long ago that Adam Schiff not only took, but also published Representative Devin Nunes’ phone records.

Maybe we should push for Schiff’s records to be published.

  1. There is nothing odd about the behavior of progressive politicians; they are energetically pursuing a communist agenda. The trick, or at least it would appear so, is to get most Americans to acknowledge this fact and repudiate it in grand style on Election Day. I’m not holding my breath, though.

  2. Considering the history of our press, I also know that I shouldn’t hope for much. Still, a widely-read neutral press (or at least a right-wing press to balance the entrenched left-wing, main-stream media) would be a nice addition to our current offerings.
