Transcripts from a 2018 closed-door House Intelligence Committee hearing pertaining to the Russian collusion delusion hoax are reportedly ready to be released to the public but are allegedly being blocked by a “panicked,” homebound current committee chairman Adam Schiff.
The transcripts were originally authorized for release by the then-GOP-controlled Intelligence Committee in September of 2018. However, the transcripts first had to be reviewed by the intelligence officials for any necessary redaction. Their review reportedly concluded last summer, yet the transcripts have remained hidden since.
The transcripts are relevant because they reportedly show top law enforcement and intelligence officials confirming that they had found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russian operatives.
While their confirmations align with former special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, which were released in a report a year later in early 2019, they contradict remarks Schiff made publicly between the time of the 2018 hearing and the time of the report’s release.
BREAKING: Sources are saying the Russia probe transcripts say that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia.
This contradicts previous statements made by Adam Schiff.
He is reported to be in ‘panic mode.’
Adam Schiff should be fired for lying.

Adam Schiff repeatedly told Congress and the American people that he had “direct evidence” of Russian collusion.
According to new reports, he knew he was lying.
It’s a felony to lie before Congress, but what is it when Congress lies before you? 🤔

This would mean Schiff lied and misrepresented the truth. It would not be a first for him. Nor would it be his first act of blocking the release of transcripts.
“FBI and DOJ officials did not abuse the FISA process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign. … DOJ met the rigor, transparency, and evidentiary basis needed to meet FISA’s probable cause requirement,” the current Intelligence Committee chair said in his infamous 2018 memo.
A year later, this was proven to be 100 percent false.
DOJ and FBI officials “made only narrow use of information from Steele’s sources about Page’s specific activities in 2016,” his memo further claimed.
That too was found to be false.
In a letter dated this past Monday, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell requested that Schiff abide by the Intelligence Committee’s 2018 vote and release the transcripts.
“In the interests of transparency and accountability, 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 all Members of Congress and the American public as soon as possible,” he wrote.
He further warned that he might release the transcripts himself if Schiff failed to take action: “I am also willing to release the transcripts directly from the ODNI to ensure we comply with unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts.”
View the letter below:
Schiff, who has a record of politicizing everything and further lying about everything, responded by crying foul and claiming that the release of the transcripts had been held up by the White House.
“Given the overtly political role now played by the acting DNI, including the leak of his letter, this committee and the public can have little confidence that his determinations are made on the merits,” a committee spokesperson reportedly said on his behalf, according to Fox News.
“This process had already taken far too long, most notably because the ODNI improperly held up the declassification review and release of several transcripts at the request of the White House.”
But if this is true, then why did the transcripts still remain unreleased as of Thursday morning?
During his weekday Fox News program late Wednesday, FNC host Sean Hannity predicted the transcripts would finally be released sometime Thursday — but not by Schiff.
“Oh, by the way, Adam Schiff, tick-tock,” he said. “It’s not going to be a good day tomorrow. Just guessing. … Tomorrow … could be the day that the corrupt, comprised, congenital liar Schiff is completely exposed. Then the question of possible crimes he may have committed, that needs to be probed deeply.”
“This is what draining the swamp looks like. It’s taken this long. Why? I don’t know. This is what holding Schiff, the deep state, actors like Comey [and] Rosenstein accountable for their lies, their abuse of power, their corruption, their shredding of the rule of law and the Constitution. Also, sources telling me tonight there’s much more to come. Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride the next 12 to 14 days.”
Listen via FNC’s “Hannity” (disable your adblocker if the video doesn’t appear):
These remarks come as sources have confirmed with Fox News that the transcripts prove without a doubt that Schiff made misleading statements.
One 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,” FNC reported Wednesday.
“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 said.
Again, this would not be the first example of the current Intelligence Committee chair distorting the truth.
In a statement to FNC, one senior administration added, “Schiff is in panic mode.“
