Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is so unhinged in his hatred for President Donald Trump that he’d apparently leave the United States vulnerable to attack for several days just to exact the ultimate revenge.
Appearing Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Schiff said Trump should no longer receive daily intelligence briefings and be prohibited from receiving these briefings after he leaves office — ex-presidents are entitled to classified briefings.
“There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future,” Schiff said, suggesting the current commander in chief should be kept in the dark about national threats, adding. “I don’t think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future he certainly can’t be trusted.”
The House Intelligence Committee chairman who led the first sham impeachment of President Trump is furthering a media-enabled campaign to purge him from history, cancelling Trump and all the gains associated with his presidency.
In the irony of ironies, given how Schiff’s committee leaks like a sieve, the Democrat claimed some U.S. allies have been withholding intelligence from the administration out of fear that Trump would not keep the information private.
Schiff said this “makes us less safe,” though keeping the commander in chief in the dark apparently does not.
The segment was set up by comments from Susan Gordon, former principal deputy director of national intelligence in the administration.
Gordon, considered a close ally to former CIA director John Brennan, a rabid Trump hater, penned an op-ed Friday saying Joe Biden should block Trump from receiving intelligence briefings once he’s in office, as a result of Trump’s actions related to the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. — the FBI has reportedly uncovered evidence suggesting the assault was planned well before Trump spoke that day.
“My recommendation, as a 30-plus-year veteran of the intelligence community, is not to provide him any briefings after Jan. 20,” Gordon wrote. “With this simple act — which is solely the new president’s prerogative — Joe Biden can mitigate one aspect of the potential national security risk posed by Donald Trump, private citizen.”
After a discussion about Trump allegedly implanting a GOP operative at the National Security Agency — Michael Ellis — Schiff was asked if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the one article of impeachment to the Senate.
“Well, that will be the speaker’s decision. I’ll leave the strategy to her and to [Rep.] Jamie Raskin and that incredibly talented team,” he replied, before calling Trump’s rally remarks “the most serious crime against our country and constitution of any president in history.”
In doing so, he seemingly acknowledged the Democrats’ second impeachment was a partisan rush job.
“The fact that it took place in the last month doesn’t make it any less serious,” Schiff said. “There needs to be full accountability. I hope and pray the Senate will uphold their duty and oath when that case is tried.”
