Accusations of witness tampering continue to be leveled at House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The controversial Democrat, who holds a key position in directing the House impeachment inquiry, has a record of alleged influence over key witnesses against the Administration, including those involved in the Mueller investigation. Once again, Schiff has been accused of manipulating a witness. This time, that key witness is the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment firestorm. The New York Times reports that the whistleblower, who is a CIA operative, went to Schiff’s aides before filing his official complaint. Schiff withheld that information from the public which is unethical, if not, illegal.
Schiff previously claimed that the committee had no contact with the CIA whistleblower prior to the complaint filing. The shifty Schiff now claims that he meant that he personally did not have contact, even though his staff member, on his behalf, met with the whistleblower. This is a very important event. Schiff had meetings with Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson and with Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohan ahead of their testimonies to House committees about Russian collusion with Trump during the 2016 election. Schiff is accused of manipulating and coordinating their testimonies against Trump. Ethics violation complaints have been filed against Schiff by Judicial Watch, a non-profit government watchdog.
Schiff also broke committee rules by not sharing the whistleblower information with Republicans on the committee, according to a tweet by Fred Fleitz, former chief of staff to the National Security Council and CIA analyst. Fleitz tweeted: “under @HouseIntelComm rules, any classified info brought to the committee from outside sources MUST BE SHARED WITH BOTH SIDES. Schiff broke committee rules by not telling committee GOP members about this…This is a very serious violation of @HouseIntelComm rules. Why did Schiff do this, especially when he was using this information to score political points throughout the month of August? The reason is clear: it was part of the latest Dem ploy to take down @realDonaldTrump.”
There is a lot of nasty politics going on right now as the Democrats jockey for position in shaping both the public narrative and how they want the “facts” to be received surrounding the impeachment inquiry. Notice Schiff’s pattern—do the deed, get the press, get caught, then have an excuse with plausible deniability. His strategic job in the impeachment assault appears to be to feed the public propaganda and to use his Intelligence Committee connections with the deep-state to “coordinate” the assault. Notice also that this impeachment approach involves deep-state operatives, as did the entire Russian-Trump fiasco. Ephesians 5:6 says, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” Do not be deceived by all this chicanery. Pray for the truth to be revealed!
