Congressman Adam Schiff publicly opposed the appointment of a new investigation into the origins of the Russia-Trump investigation in 2016 this week after backing Robert Mueller’s probe for years.
“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, one of the leading proponents of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, said Tuesday he opposes Attorney General William Barr’s decision to appoint U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel in an investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe,” reports the Daily Caller.

“In an appointment secretly conferred on Durham prior to the election…Barr is using the special counsel law for a purpose it was not intended: to continue a politically motivated investigation long after Barr leaves office,” Schiff said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The best thing we can do…is to take up this bill to protect Mueller so we don’t invite a constitutional crisis,” Schiff said in an interview on Sept. 26, 2018.

“I’m certainly not satisfied that the intelligence supports the conclusion that the killing of Soleimani was going to either prevent attacks on the United States or reduce the risk to American lives,” Schiff told the Post.
“I don’t think the intelligence was of the kind of character that would lead to a uniform recommendation that Soleimani should be killed,” Schiff added. “I think that was an impulsive judgment made by the president.”

ANOTHER SCHIFF SHOW? Schiff Vows to ‘Get to the Bottom’ of New ‘Whistleblower Complaint’
Congressman Adam Schiff suggested this week the House Intelligence Committee could launch another probe into Russian election interference; promising to “get to the bottom” of a new “whistleblower complaint.”
“We will get to the bottom of this, expose any and all misconduct or corruption to the American people, and put a stop to the politicization of intelligence,” said Congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the committee.
“We’ve received a whistleblower complaint alleging DHS suppressed intel reports on Russian election interference, altered intel to match false Trump claims and made false statements to Congress,” Schiff, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “This puts our national security at risk.”
