Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligences Committee, is now hypocritically slamming President Trump for directing Attorney General William Barr to declassify documents regarding the origins of the Obama Administration’s Russia investigation. Schiff calls the move “un-American.” “While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies,” Schiff wrote on Twitter Thursday evening.
This guy has no self-awareness whatsoever and doesn’t seem to get he is objecting to exactly what he called for. “The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American,” Schiff stated. The only danger here is uncovering those who attempted a coup against President Trump and that would certainly include Adam Schiff.
“Schiff’s accusations came hours after President Trump announced that he directed the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr’s probe into surveillance activities in the 2016 presidential election. In a memorandum to several cabinet directors, the president request officials cooperate with Barr’s probe into Spygate’s originals and authorized the attorney general to declassify information concerning the counterintelligence operation.
“Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice,
Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.
The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase.
This is un-American.

“President Trump has repeatedly called for an investigation into the surveillance activities of his campaign. For months, Republicans such as Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) have called on the White House to declassify parts of the FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on former Trump campaign foreign advisor Carter Page. The bureau used portions of the Hillary Clinton-funded Steele dossier for warrants targeting Page.
“In a Monday interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton ripped the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative as “the big lie,” and even went as far to describe it as an international effort to take out Trump.”
President Obama can and must declassify as much as possible about Russia hacking our elections. Rest assured, Trump won't. https://t.co/ONM8N0kCMl

“Yesterday, you had confirmation over in the United Kingdom that that intelligence operation there — the UK’s intelligence apparatus — also knew about the dossier,” Fitton told host and Breitbart News editor-in-chief host Alex Marlow, adding “and part of that spying that took place with Stefan Halper also took place in London. The New York Times, at the end of their story, exposing that, disclosed that the UK knew about that spy operation as well.”
“Fitton continued: “You had this other agency — supposedly a friend of the United States — laundering the Steele dossier that was created as a result of FBI-DNC-Clinton campaign money in consultation with Russian intelligence. It’s pretty incredible stuff, and it shows you that it was an international effort to take out Trump. It wasn’t just based her in the United States.”’
“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities….

It’s no secret that Schiff vehemently dislikes President Trump. His contradictory statements show how politicized and dishonest he is. Twitter pundits almost instantly discovered a previous tweet where Schiff appeared to support the declassification of all documents related to the Russian investigation. And he cited Trump’s reticence against it as evidence of wrongdoing. “President Obama can and must declassify as much as possible about Russia hacking our elections. Rest assured, Trump won’t,” he tweeted in 2016. Now, he says the exact opposite.
Schiff can’t have it both ways. “Trump: Release the information so the public can see and hear the truth,” said Dan Bongino, the host of The Dan Bongino show. “Delusional, Insane, Lying, Conspiracy Theorist Schiff: ‘Coverup!’” That about sums it up. And this was a grand slam: “Want to know why Adam Schiff is panicking over declassification of surveillance docs? Because AG Barr is finally getting to the bottom of: *spying of @realDonaldTrump’s campaign *leaks from Comey’s FBI *Dem-funded dossier The American people deserve answers,” GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote. Yes, they do. Still waiting.
