Failed impeachment manager Adam Schiff has a new complaint: Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is getting rid of his friends working in the deep state.
In fact, Schiff is so concerned his stream of endless conspiracy theories about President Trump might be coming to an end that he's written an accusatory letter to Grenell, which he leaked first to the press, demanding to know more about what he's doing.
His letter was sent to the press before it was sent to me. These press leaks politicizing the intelligence community must stop. https://t.co/hdWIzGWvZr— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 7, 2020
"I am writing to express my concern that you are pursuing organizational and personnel changes at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) without consulting and seeking authorization from Congress and in a manner that undermines critical intelligence functions. This effort appears to be proceeding despite the Coronavirus pandemic and amid indications, exemplified by a March 10 briefing to Members of Congress, of political interference in the production and dissemination of intelligence. These developments call into question both your commitment to ensuring that the Intelligence Community's (IC) work on behalf of our nation is not inappropriately influenced by political considerations, as required by law and that the IC will continue to speak truth to power," Schiff wrote.
Talk about projection. Schiff's entire argument against President Trump for the past three years has a been a politicization of faulty intelligence. Just last week Schiff announced his latest investigatory project.
After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) April 1, 2020
Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.
I’m working on a bill to do that.https://t.co/uqO3BwVldN
Schiff's letter was prompted by the firing of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson Friday night. During Schiff's House impeachment inquiry last year, Atkinson testified behind closed doors about the "whistleblower" who filed a complaint about President Trump's July 25th phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript for Atkinson's testimony has never been released by Schiff.
Of course Adam Schiff is complaining about ICIG Atkinson being fired. He was Schiff’s key impeachment enabler.— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) April 4, 2020
- Let the Whistleblower lie about meeting with Schiff’s staff
- Didn’t disclose the fact that the WB worked for Biden
Schiff still won’t release Atkinson’s transcript!
When Grenell was hired by President Trump earlier this year, he was given a directive to clean house.
