Kevin Clinesmith, a former FBI lawyer, “will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.”

Clinesmith is being charged in federal court in Washington and is expected to plead guilty to one count of making a false statement, his attorney Justin Shur told 360aproko news. “Kevin deeply regrets having altered the email. It was never his intent to mislead the court or his colleagues as he believed the information he relayed was accurate. But Kevin understands what he did was wrong and accepts responsibility,” Shur later said in a statement.

That’s lawyerspeak for saying ‘My client is guilty as sin’ without admitting he’s guilty as sin. Sean Davis of the Federalist wrote this article on the expected Clinesmith guilty plea. In that article, Davis wrote this:

Horowitz and his team wrote in a 434-page report that Clinesmith, identified in the report as “OGC Attorney”, altered an email from a separate U.S. federal agency, believed to be the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to falsely state that Page had never worked with the CIA to investigate suspected Russia agents operating within the U.S. In fact, as Clinesmith was told by the operative, Page had worked with the CIA previously, as well as with the FBI.

It’s difficult to picture a more corrupt action. This is a severe violation of Carter Page’s civil rights, starting with the Fourth Amendment. The text of the Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

It’s difficult to picture how a search could be determined to be reasonable if it’s based on a lie. Further, how could misrepresenting the facts satisfy the legal standard of probable cause? Clinesmith allegedly changed the email used in the FISA warrant application from saying that that Carter Page was a CIA asset to saying Page had never been a CIA asset. Further, the Fourth Amendment requires that someone affirm the accuracy of the application.

This is the first investigation into the Russia Collusion hoax that’s actually presented evidence of a crime. Adam Schiff’s faux impeachment investigation presented hearsay testimony but it didn’t present evidence that a crime had been committed. Schiff played fast and loose with the rules of evidence. Durham is a legitimate investigator who found the original email, then found the doctored email.

This is just the first shoe to drop. Clinesmith didn’t have the authority to sign off on the warrant application. He was just one piece of this puzzle.

Saying that Nancy Pelosi stepped in it when she said that President Trump is “messing with the health of our children” with push to open schools is understatement. That statement, according to this interview of Scott Atlas, is a whopper. In the interview, Dr. Atlas said “I think we have a different scale because that’s just completely wrong and contrary to all the science. And when I say all the science, I’m talking about signs all over the world not just in the United States but Switzerland, Sweden, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Australia, Asia.”

Atlas then continued to bury Ms. Pelosi with scientific information:

But I think the most important thing of all, well, the other — there’s two points that I want to make. One is that teaching is a young profession. In the United States half the teachers are 40 or less and a quarter of them are under 30. Ninety percent are under 60 in public schools.

They have almost zero risk from this and for those high risk teachers, which there are some, if they believe in masks and social distancing, don’t think they know how to do that by now, and if they’re still afraid to do their job, why can’t they teach from a distance? If they think social distancing works, teach in a class, if they think a distance learning works, teach from home.

But the problem here and this the biggest point of all, I never hear anyone talk about the harms of closing schools. The harms are against the children. Anyone who prioritizes children would open the schools. That’s just counterfactual to say that, you know, the children are not the risk or, you know, were at risk here.

If President Trump had said that schools should be kept closed, Pelosi would’ve complained that he’s against learning or something else. The part that’s most sickening is that everything is about gaining political advantage with Ms. Pelosi. Apparently, the truth is irrelevant to Ms. Pelosi. There’s still some things she does well in her Speaker duties but she isn’t the Speaker.

The Mob has given her their marching orders and she’s obediently following their orders. Axios is part of that Mob. In their article, they write:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ aggressive push to fully reopen schools this fall is “malfeasance and dereliction of duty,” accusing the Trump administration of “messing with the health of our children.”

Why it matters: Trump has demanded that schools reopen as part of his efforts to juice the economy by allowing parents to return to work, despite caution from health officials that little is known about how the virus impacts children.

Even with the coronavirus outbreak spiraling out of control in several states, Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from schools that choose not to reopen and claimed Democrats want to keep schools closed past November for political reasons.

Thank God for impartial reporting. (Just kidding.) Axios apparently can’t afford to hire a doctor to confirm whether Ms. Pelosi’s statements are true or if they’re wildly imaginative. Thankfully, FNC is able to afford someone qualified on the subject. Dr. Atlas pounds home the falsity of Ms. Pelosi’s statements in this interview:

Dr. Atlas’ logic and data is straightforward. Ms. Pelosi’s statements are disgusting, frankly. She’s a liar of similar magnitude as Adam Schiff. With ‘leadership’ like Ms. Pelosi’s, it isn’t surprising that the Democrats have such little use for the truth.

Derek Hunter’s Townhall article is titled “Liberal’s All-Out Assault On Free Speech” is a frightening assault on the English language. Frankly, it’s sloppy and incorrect. Hunter wrote “While the “conservatives” at the time were the ones imposing penalties on speech, it’s now the liberals seeking to do the same, and worse. The idea of criminalizing so-called “hate speech” has been popular with college-aged liberals for a while now. While normal people laughed at those stupid college kids needing safe spaces when someone was on campus saying things they didn’t agree with and requiring “trigger warnings” before engaging in normal human conversations on subject that might cause them to need a diaper change, liberals were busy looking for an opportunity to use this childishness to their advantage. They found it…by becoming them.”

The people “imposing penalties on speech” aren’t liberals. They’re progressives. There’s a world of difference between liberals and progressives. Democrats like Hubert Humphrey and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were liberal policywise but their liberalism had a healthy libertarian streak to it. Today’s progressives, like AOC, Adam Schiff or any Antifa/BLM member, have a fascist streak running through them.

We can’t defeat progressivism or the Cancel Culture if we aren’t properly identifying them. Cancel Culture’s fascism and BLM’s Marxism have totalitarian underpinnings to them. They aren’t interested in compromise, principled or otherwise. They’re interested in domination and total victory. Antifa ‘warriors’ often sound tougher than they are but their principle tactic is intimidation. In this instance, they ran into police prepared to deal with their intimidation:

These aren’t liberal protesters getting chased. They’re fascist thugs attempting to disrupt and potentially demolish a city. In this case, they were trying to destroy Portland, OR. This time, the fascists lost.

What we call them determine what weapons and tactics are required for the situation. Against fascists, I know that I’m not changing hearts and minds. My highest priority is protecting myself. That means we should think in terms of getting into a street fight. That means becoming a hardened target. Once we’re operating with that mindset, we’re properly prepared for the fight at hand.

Jason Lewis debated Paul Wellstone often. At the end of the debate, they’d compliment each other for the good points they’d made. Antifa sees that as a sign of weakness. Lewis vs. Wellstone is like Psalm 23, which says “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” The Street Version of Psalm 23 goes like this: “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil because I’m the biggest, baddest SOB in the valley.”

It’s time to throw away the Democrats’ anti-police spin/lies. The latest in the series is Ilhan Omar’s op-ed. It contains one of the biggest whoppers I’ve ever seen, which is something considering the fact that I just read an op-ed written by Adam Schiff.

In the op-ed, Rep. Omar wrote “In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, people across the country and around the globe are standing in solidarity with the protesters in Minneapolis. The message and movement of ‘Black Lives Matter’ has at long last gained the acceptance they long deserved.” That’s almost pure BS. First, the people that’ve gotten out in the streets aren’t protesters. They’re anarchists, rioters and looters. That’s substantially different than the definition of a protester.

The definition of protester is “an expression or declaration of objection, disapproval, or dissent, often in opposition to something a person is powerless to prevent or avoid.” The definition of rioter is “a noisy, violent public disorder caused by a group or crowd of persons, as by a crowd protesting against another group, a government policy, etc., in the streets.” This isn’t a protest:

That’s what a riot looks like. Next, Black Lives Matter is getting discredited, thanks in large part to the fact that BLM’s co-founders said that they’re “trained Marxists.” America-hating Somalis might think Marxists are gaining acceptance with Democrats but that’s the only place BLM is gaining acceptance. Then there’s this:

For too long, people who live and work in Minneapolis, particularly black and other marginalized communities, have faced violence at the hands of police. Despite attempts at accountability and reform, the department continues to fail the city, as was laid bare with George Floyd’s murder and the department’s actions since his killing.

That’s because Minneapolis is ‘governed’ by activists, not policy-makers. Further, DFL City Councilmembers think first about how situations can be used for their political advantage. The Minneapolis City Council is entirely DFL. If the police aren’t trained properly, then that’s 100% on the DFL.

Ilhan Omar is part of the DFL. Ditto with Keith Ellison, the person who represented Minnesota’s Fifth District. Ditto with Phyllis Kahn, the woman who represented the legislative district Omar represented. Kahn represented the district for almost 50 years.

The legitimate argument is that Minneapolis should throw out the Democrats who’ve represented Minneapolis’s failed status quo for 40+ years. Why doesn’t the DFL get the blame? They’re the people representing the city at all levels of government, from the City Council, to the State Legislature to the U.S. Congress. The results are in and indisputable. Democrats have failed Minneapolis for half a century.

After impeachment failed, COVID took our mind off of Adam Schiff’s dishonesty. Thanks to Schiff’s op-ed, published by USA Today, we’re reminded that Schiff is still a world-class liar. Liar might be too harsh a word, though. It’s entirely possible that Schiff actually thinks that he’s telling the truth.

That would make him delusional or psychotic, not dishonest. That would mean that he needs to be put in a padded room, not a prison cell. That’s certainly a possibility. But I digress. Let’s examine the depths of Schiff’s potential psychosis.

The opening paragraph is fairly mundane, stating “Last week, we witnessed the reemergence of John Bolton, the president’s former national security adviser, and the release of his book. In it, Bolton describes his personal experiences with Donald Trump and his great alarm at Trump’s incompetence, his dangerous subordination of our national security to his own personal interests, and his fundamental indecency.”

Schiff’s psychosis isn’t exposed until the second and third paragraphs:

In short, Bolton is telling Americans what we already know. That the president is exactly what he appears to be: petty, self-serving, ignorant and utterly supplicant to autocrats in China, Turkey, North Korea and Russia.

We proved during the impeachment trial that Trump withheld hundreds of millions in military aid to Ukraine to coerce that country into announcing a sham investigation of his political rival. Bolton confirms our case and provides additional evidence of that flagrant abuse of power by providing a firsthand account of how Trump confirmed this illicit quid pro quo during a conversation they had. Moreover, Bolton also corroborates the testimony of Gordon Sondland, the former U.S. ambassador to the European Union who testified that “everyone was in the loop.” Indeed they were, including the secretary of State, the Defense secretary and Attorney General Bill Barr.

Saying that President Trump is “utterly supplicant” to China is beyond delusional. It’s totally unhinged with reality. Saying that President Trump is utterly supplicant to Russia is psychotic, too. President Trump sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, something that the Obama-Biden administration never did. If sending anti-tank missiles to Ukraine makes Trump utterly supplicant, does that make the Obama-Biden administration traitors or, at minimum, Russian assets? Remember this?

That’s what being utterly supplicant to Russia looks like. Sending anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, Russia’s neighbor, isn’t being supplicant, utterly or otherwise. That being said, Schiff was is lying when he said that Democrats “proved during the impeachment trial that Trump withheld hundreds of millions in military aid to Ukraine to coerce that country into announcing a sham investigation of his political rival.”

What was proven was that military aid was delayed until the Trump administration figured out whether the Zelenskiy administration was corrupt. The minute the Trump administration knew that President Zelenskiy could be trusted, the military aid was released. Mike Taylor proved that in this cross-examination of Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the EU:

KABOOM!!! Sondland’s testimony during Michael Turner’s cross-examination is proof that the Democrats didn’t prove that military aid wasn’t withheld from Ukraine to coerce Ukraine “into announcing a shame investigation” into Joe Biden. That’s irrefutable proof that didn’t happen. That’s the opposite of what Schiff said.

The rest of Schiff’s op-ed consists of Schiff quoting discredited Bolton quotes. While I won’t state that Schiff and Bolton are world-class liars, I wouldn’t hesitate in saying that Schiff is discredited Ambassador Joe Wilson’s equal in terms of lying. (The old joke about Wilson was ‘How can you tell Wilson is lying? A: If his lips are moving.’ That fits Mr. Schiff perfectly.)

Tuesday night, Mike Garcia was predicted to lose the special election in California’s 25th District. Mollie Hemingway’s article tells a different story. Mike Garcia didn’t just win the special election. He won by a lopsided margin.

This isn’t good news for Democrats. First, let’s stipulate that special elections often have weird turnouts. With that stipulated, though, let’s get to the important part. Kevin McCarthy is smiling because, as he told Sean Hannity tonight, there are 42 seats that are rated better than the seat Garcia just re-flipped. Republicans only need to flip 17 more seats in 2020 to retake the majority.

Earlier this week, I wrote that the massive Trump army didn’t disappear during the pandemic. Let’s be clear about something. Leader McCarthy spoke about the robust ballot-harvesting operation that happened in this special election — on the GOP side. If that muscle shows up in November, which I predict is likely, then it’s virtually certain that Queen Pelosi will have to relinquish her Speaker’s Gavel for a second time. This time, it will have been after just a single term as Speaker.

There’s another thing we should be clear about. If we don’t make retaking the House a high priority, then tyrants will have chairmen’s gavels. Think about how devastating it’d be with Nadler, Schiff, AOC and Maxine Waters with gavels. But I digress. Here’s what Ms. Hemingway wrote:

The case made by Geoffrey Skelley and Nathaniel Rakich was simple: Supposedly Americans strongly prefer Biden and Democrats over Trump and Republicans, and they are particularly upset with Trump and other Republicans’ attempts to reopen the country as the global Coronavirus pandemic rages.

“On Tuesday, we’ll get a taste of whether Democrats’ electoral advantage on paper will hold up in practice, as California and Wisconsin hold special elections for two vacant congressional seats. The main event is in the California 25th Congressional District, a bellwether seat in the north Los Angeles suburbs, where both parties see a chance to add to their ranks in the House. But if Democrats are also competitive in the quickly reddening, rural Wisconsin 7th Congressional District, it could signal another blue wave in the fall,” they argued.

That “blue wave” crashed in Wisconsin:

Trump won Wisconsin by less than a point, but carried the district by 20 points, in 2016. Tiffany’s win over Zunker was about 6 points less than that, based on preliminary results. Tiffany rejected Democrats’ argument that the smaller margin was a sign that Trump’s support was waning. “Any time you lose by 14 points, I don’t think that’s a moral victory,” Tiffany said. “This is a decisive victory here.”

I’d totally agree with both points. I think Democrats are misreading things. While President Trump is working with any governor that asks for the federal government’s help, Queen Pelosi keeps delaying bills that’ve put small businesses out of businesses. Democrats apparently haven’t noticed that people don’t like the draconian measures put in place by tyrants like Illinois’s J.B. Pritzker, Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf. If that trio of Democrat governors were up for re-election this fall, I’d bet heavily that, at minimum, 2 of the 3 would lose.

This is funny:


To steal a line from the original A-Team, “God, I love it when a plan comes together.”

Anyone who’s studied Nancy Pelosi, henceforth nicknamed Queen Pelosi on LFR, knows that she’s into writing major bills in her office. Further, she’s a control freak, seeking only the input of her top lieutenants rather than listening to the voice of the people. Listening to the voice of the people would require holding committee hearings, which Queen Pelosi isn’t a fan of except when they’re impeachment hearings (see Schiff, Adam) or to rubberstamp articles of impeachment, (see Nadler, Jerry). Democrats, BTW, haven’t uttered a word fighting Queen Pelosi. Why should they? These Democrats agree with Queen Pelosi.

When Obamacare was written, the House bill was run through multiple committees, though none of the bills that were marked up in committees were the final bill. That final House bill was written in Pelosi’s office. That led to this infamous statement from Queen Pelosi:

If Pelosi’s actions guided her grade on the Declaration of Independence, she’d get an F- or worse. Early in the Declaration, it emphatically states this:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Queen Pelosi doesn’t care about getting “their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Queen Pelosi just cares about shoving legislation down the minority party’s throats. The House Democrat Caucus is beholden to this tyrant because Queen Pelosi is a prolific fundraiser. Without her, 75% of them wouldn’t be in DC.

That’s why I’m advocating for a modern-day revolution, one not fought with muskets but with ballots. If Queen Pelosi isn’t interested in representing We the People, then it’s time to strip her of the thing she thirsts for most — her Speaker’s gavel. That’s the only way to restore the House of Representatives to representing We The People.

Queen Pelosi doesn’t work with House Minority Leader McCarthy. According to McCarthy, she informs him of what she’s about to do. That isn’t showing interest in what We The People want. That’s proof that Queen Pelosi is interested in her ideological checklist. It’s time for her to get terminated from the Speaker’s position.

John Solomon has worked overtime and then some to rip Adam Schiff’s mask off. So have Catherine Herridge, Sara Carter, Lee Smith, Gregg Jarrett, Kim Strassel, Mollie Hemmingway and Byron York. Solomon’s article highlights how utterly dishonest Adam Schiff is. Ditto with the upper echelon of the FBI. Strap yourself in. This isn’t a short ride.

The pursuit of the truth ended Thursday when the Justice Department formally asked a court to vacate Flynn’s conviction and end the criminal case, acknowledging the former general had indeed been cleared by FBI agents and that the bureau did not have a lawful purpose when it interviewed him in January 2017.

Attorney General William Barr put it more bluntly in an interview Thursday: “They kept it open for the express purpose of trying to catch, to lay a perjury trap for General Flynn.”

According to Solomon’s reporting, the FBI didn’t have a reason to investigate Gen. Flynn:

3. Case closed memo. FBI agents wrote a memo to close the investigation of Flynn on Jan. 4, 2017, writing they found “no derogatory” evidence that Flynn committed a crime or posed a national security threat. FBI management then ordered the closure to be rescinded and pivoted toward trying lure Flynn into an interview. https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/fbi-found-no-derogatory-russia-evidence-flynn-planned

Corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok allegedly ordered Crossfire Razor, the codename for the Flynn investigation, to stay open. Later, in a text to his lover, said this:

“Our utter incompetence actually helps us.”

It’s fair to ask how this relate to Adam Schiff. Adam Schiff knew that the FBI line office wanted to shut down Crossfire Razor. Most importantly, he knew that the officers had found “no derogatory” evidence against Flynn. They found that out before President Trump’s inauguration. That meant that there wasn’t a legitimate predicate for the Flynn investigation. Solomon laid out his case in this interview:

Schiff is a sociopath. Solomon cites 10 different statements Schiff made in public that were contradicted by what was known by the intelligence community. This is disgusting:

Unequal treatment. James Comey bragged in a videotaped interview that he authorized the FBI to try to conduct a Flynn interview without the proper notifications and protocol, hoping to catch Flynn and the new Trump White House off guard. In other words, they didn’t follow procedure or treat Flynn like others when it came to due process. Comey said the tactic was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized administration.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/comey-admits-decision-to-send-fbi-agents-to-interview-mike-flynn-was-not-standard

Comey and Schiff are the most reprehensible figures in this disgusting episode. They’re both narcissists and sociopaths.

Apparently, Adam Schiff is in panic mode now that transcripts of the House Intel Committee are about to be released. What’s supposedly getting under Schiff’s skin is that he’s about to be exposed:

Another source familiar with the transcripts told Fox News that the people interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee during its Russia probe were asked whether they had evidence that Trump, himself, or the Trump campaign conspired, colluded or coordinated with Russia during the 2016 election.

Two sources familiar with the transcripts told Fox News that not one of the 53 witnesses could provide evidence of collusion. “The transcripts show a total lack of evidence, despite Schiff personally going out saying he had more than circumstantial evidence that there was collusion,” one source involved in House Russia investigations told Fox News.

Mueller, similarly, at the conclusion of his nearly two-year-long investigation, said he and his team found no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, but did not reach a conclusion on obstruction of justice, which current Attorney General Bill Barr ultimately decided not to pursue.

Then there’s this:

While law enforcement officials have long maintained that there was clear intelligence Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, to date, there have been no charges concerning actual conspiracy against people associated with the Trump campaign, which was at the core of the Russia investigation.

There isn’t any dispute that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election. The question was whether people from the Trump campaign assisted in that meddling. It isn’t that Mueller couldn’t find enough evidence to recommend impeachment of President Trump. It’s that the official Mueller Report didn’t find any evidence that anyone in the United States worked with the Russians.

This should make Schiff nervous:

This won’t help Schiff’s credibility, either:

“According to Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer who is reportedly held in high regard by U.S. intelligence, Russian sources tell him that Page has also had a secret meeting with Igor Sechin, CEO of Russian gas giant Rosneft,” Schiff declared at a March 20, 2017 House Intelligence Committee hearing.

“Sechin is reported to be a former KGB agent and close friend of Putin’s. According to Steele’s Russian sources, Page is offered brokerage fees by Sechin on a deal involving a 19 percent share of the company,” the California Democrat added.

Later, Schiff added this:

For instance, Schiff claimed this about the Steele dossier in a Nov. 15, 2017 interview with The Wall Street Journal: “The bigger factor is how much of it can you corroborate and how much of it is true. A lot of it has turned out to be true.”

Adam Schiff is a guttersnipe and a Democrat partisan hack. If Nancy Pelosi cared about integrity, which she doesn’t, she should’ve thrown Schiff out of the House.

Will Thursday turn into Adam Schiff’s day of reckoning? That’s definitely a possibility according to Byron York’s Daily Memo:

A big development in the fight over 53 secret interviews the House Intelligence Committee conducted during its Trump-Russia investigation. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has sent a letter to chairman Adam Schiff notifying him that transcripts of all 53 interviews, over 6,000 pages in all, have been cleared for public release. “All of the transcripts, with our required redactions, can be released to the public without any concerns of disclosing classified material,” Grenell wrote to Schiff in a letter dated May 4.

Grenell then provided a list of which transcripts had been cleared:

Then York noted this:

The interviews were conducted in secret. But by September 2018, with the committee’s report long finished and made public, the Republicans who still controlled the committee decided the interview transcripts should be released to the public. In a rare moment of comity, Democrats agreed, and on September 26, 2018, the committee voted unanimously to release the transcripts. But there was a catch: The documents would have to first be checked for classified information by the Intelligence Community. So off they went to the IC — never to be seen again.

Now, in May 2020, they’re still secret. Two weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal editorial board reported that the IC had finished its review of 43 of the transcripts, but Schiff was refusing to release them. The paper said Schiff was also preventing declassification of the remaining ten transcripts.

Then Grennell threw in one other thing:

In the letter, Grenell revealed that the 43 transcripts have been finished since June 2019. Schiff has been sitting on them all that time. Grenell said the final ten have just been finished as well. “I urge you to honor your previous public statements, and your committee’s unanimous vote on this matter, to release all 53 cleared transcripts to Members of Congress and the American public as soon as possible,” Grenell said. Just in case Schiff is still not interested, Grenell added, “I am also willing to release the transcripts directly from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as to ensure we comply with the unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts.”

That’s a rather large thing. This puts Mr. Schiff in a difficult position. As York highlights, some in the GOP think that “Schiff was making it up all along.” This is rich:

A House Intelligence Committee spokesman told Fox News Wednesday that the panel received Grenell’s letter on Tuesday. “After more than a year of unnecessary delay, the ODNI has finally concluded its protracted classification review of the Committee’s transcripts, and it also appears the White House has now abandoned its improper insistence on reviewing key transcripts, which the Committee appropriately rejected,” the spokesman said.

House Intel Republicans slapped back:

“We understand now that Chairman Schiff is blocking the release of these transcripts,” they wrote. “This news, if accurate, is disturbing, especially in light of Chairman Schiff’s cries in 2019 for transparency regarding allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “For nearly four years, prominent Democrat politicians and commentators alleged that President Trump colluded with Russia, with Chairman Schiff going so far as to say that he had ‘direct evidence’ of collusion,” they continued. “Now that these allegations have been disproven by several investigations, the American people deserve to have transparency about why public figures such as Chairman Schiff continue to promote such wild accusations.”

Adam Schiff is a liar and a leaker. He should be expelled from Congress and have his security clearance revoked. He told NBC’s Chuck Todd that he had proof that President Trump colluded with Russians way back in 2017:

Schiff is the most corrupt chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He’s also the most partisan chairman of the Committee.
