Adam Schiff Makes Quite a Revealing Statement After Trump Orders Declassification of Spying Documents

Last night, President Trump gave Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify information and documents related to the FBI's spying during the 2016 presidential election. He's asked for a number of government agencies to cooperate with Barr's inquiry, including the State Department, Treasury, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, CIA and the Director of National Intelligence.

"Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election," the White House released in a statement. "The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions."

Declassification means more transparency for the American people. Hopefully, it will lead to accountability for those who turned federal law enforcement agencies into political weapons against private American citizens. 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has a different take. Ironically, it exposes Democrats.

This is what we call projection. Schiff is accusing President Trump of exactly what the Left has been doing for years. Barr is investigating their scheming and corruption, which is making players like Schiff, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brenna, former DNI James Clapper, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and others squirm.

It was the Obama White House, FBI and Department of Justice that weaponized law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies. Whether it was the IRS working with DOJ to target conservative tea party leaders or the FBI using a bogus Clinton funded dossier to justify domestic spying on Americans working for the Trump campaign. 

Further, Trump isn't covering up anything. He didn't assert executive privilege over the Mueller report, 90 percent of which is non-redacted. The 10 percent redacted material relates to sources and methods, in addition to grand jury information.

It's easy to find out exactly what the left is doing. All we have to do is look at what Schiff and others like him are accusing the Trump administration of doing and we have the answer.
