Liberal congressman Adam Schiff publicly admitted over the weekend that former President Barack Obama dropped the ball on Russian election interference; saying his administration was partially to blame for foreign meddling throughout the 2016 race for the White House.
Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations Friday, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee spoke out about the Obama administration’s “minimal response” as accusations of Russian interference made national headlines.
“Russians are equal-opportunity malevolent actors,” said Schiff. “They’re not Republican and they’re not Democrats. They’re just designed in their foreign policy and their cyber policy to undermine the United States.”
“I do think though, that in fairness, some responsibility is attributed to the Obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent. I think it goes back to the [North] Korean hack of Sony, which there was a minimal response. I think others around the world watched that,” he added.

A NEW LOW: Schiff Claims RUSSIA Pushed SECOND AMENDMENT so AMERICANS Can ‘Kill Each Other’

“We can see for example on Facebook, so graphically what I was mentioning earlier; the multiple aims of the Russians in their interference in our elections. On Facebook you had the content that was clearly anti-Hillary and you had the content that was very pro-Trump,” said Schiff.
“Of course, they parroted Black Lives Matter to try to broaden the racial divide in this country. Fascinatingly they also trumpeted the Second Amendment. The Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment,” he added.
“The Russians would be very thrilled if we would be doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are,” said the liberal lawmaker.
ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Admits DEMOCRAT MEMO Riddled with SENSITIVE INTEL
The liberal lawmaker behind the Democratic “rebuttal” to Devin Nunes’ FISA memo publicly admitted his document was riddled with sensitive intelligence and classified material; saying his colleagues “need to go through” the letter and remove the information before President Trump declassifies the dossier.
Rep. Adam Schiff -the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee- admitted the left-wing mistake while speaking at a breakfast event Wednesday morning, saying his memo does include “sources and methods” used by the nation’s intelligence community.
“We need to go through that and identify that which remains classified and would implicate sources and methods or investigative interests,” said Schiff.
Schiff’s comments are in sharp contrast to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s outright rage at President Trump for his refusal to release the Democratic ‘rebuttal.”
“President Trump’s refusal to release Intelligence Committee Democrats’ memo is a stunningly brazen attempt to cover up the truth about the Trump-Russia scandal from the American people,” said Pelosi.
“The President’s decision to block the Democratic memo from release is part of a dangerous and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the President,” she added. “Clearly, the President has something to hide.”
