Rep. Adam Schiff doubled-down on his party’s non-stop Russian obsession this week; confirming an expanded collusion investigation will be the Democrats’ “top priority” should they retake control of Congress on Election Day.
Schiff -the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee- confirmed his plans to renew the Russia probe while speaking with supporters Monday night; saying “We’re not taking anything for granted.”
Schiff “laid out his priorities as the committee’s chair if control of the House flips. Reviving the investigation into Russia’s election meddling is at the top of the list, Schiff said, and also probing whether Russia has financial leverage over President Trump through his business interests,” writes the Los Angeles Times.
“The president has sought to keep that off limits, but if that’s the leverage Russians pose that’s a real threat to our country,” Schiff added.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff ADMITS McCabe’s FIRING ‘May Be Justified’
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff acknowledged Sunday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to suddenly fire FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe “may be justified,” seconds before calling the move “tainted.”
Schiff was speaking with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos when he was asked to comment on Sessions’ abrupt removal of the senior FBI official just days before he was due to retire.
“On Andrew McCabe, does the fact that the Inspector General did find that he lacked candor in some of his responses, and that his firing was recommended by career FBI officials. Does that suggest that his firing was or may be justified?” asked Stephanopoulos.
“His firing may be justified, there’s no way for us to know at this point,” admitted Schiff. “Even though it may have been justified, it can also be tainted.”
“I think the President badgering his Attorney General, his urging that he be fired before his pension could vest, and the fact that McCabe and every other Comey associates […] every one of them has been targeted by the administration,” he added.

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.”
