Will Schiff respond with the same honor as did Nunes?
The Washington, D.C.-based conservative governmental watchdog group Freedom Watch filed a complaint with the House Ethics Committee Thursday against Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee.
Freedom Watch founder, Larry Klayman, who also founded Judicial Watch, joined in the six-page complaint against the California Democrat.
In addition to publishing a news release describing the complaint, Klayman announced it during a Newsmax appearance Thursday.
Among other things, Freedom Watch alleges that Schiff was “fully aware of and sought to cover up widespread crimes, multitudes of felonies, of warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens within the domestic United States” under the previous administration.
Klayman included this video with Freedom Watch’s announcement of the complaint.
When “leftwing activist groups” filed a similar ethics complaint against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the California Republican temporarily stepped aside from his role in the committee’s probe of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
In lawyer-speak, it’s called avoiding even the appearance of an impropriety.
Now that a similar complaint has been filed against the committee’s ranking Democratic member, will Schiff do the honorable thing and also step aside? So far, he hasn’t.
