Adam Schiff: Martyr or Traitor?

Adam Schiff: Martyr or Traitor?

You ever wonder how politicians get away with making brazen accusations towards their rivals without providing actual evidence to support their claims? While there are quite a few individuals in politics who engage in this kind of behavior, one comes to mind in particular, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

He’s gone out of his way to defame President Donald Trump on numerous occasions throughout the presidency, without presenting any actual facts to back up his claims. In regards to the facts, depending on the particular subject, it potentially goes against the House Intelligence Committee rules and regulations. This makes it not only unethical to make accusations without facts but also illegal.

Adam Schiff is actually quite notorious for breaking house rules in this regard. One of many examples comes in the most recent allegations towards President Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President. According to a report from the New York Times, the whistleblower’s complaint was actually known to Schiff before the complaint was even properly filed. Fred Fleitz, a former CIA Analyst and NSC Chief of Staff, stated:

None of the above should be surprising though considering Adam Schiff has been at the President’s throat throughout the last three years. Let’s consider the fact that he has claimed there is “more than circumstantial evidence” that President Donald Trump and associates has colluded with Russia, even though there has never been any direct evidence tying President Trump to the allegations.

Another example of Adam Schiff’s inexcusable conduct comes from an NBC report referring to an interview with Chuck Todd from MSNBC:

“The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee claimed Wednesday evening that he has seen “more than circumstantial evidence” that associates of President Donald Trump colluded with Russia while the Kremlin attempted to interfere with the 2010 presidential election

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member on the committee, was asked by Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press Daily” whether or not he only has a circumstantial case.

“Actually no, Chuck,” he said. “I can tell you that the case is more than that and I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”

The absurdity only continues in that Mr. Schiff contradicts himself when questioned about his claims on Russian collusion in an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper. The congressman said in the interview that he did not want to comment on the state of the evidence, yet he has commented on the state of the evidence numerous times throughout the investigation into collusion.

“TAPPER: Do you know of any instance where the Russians said, we’re going to do it this way, we’re going to do it through Wikileaks, we’re going to do it through DCLeaks, this is how we’re going to get this information out there?

SCHIFF: I can’t comment. That’s an issue that we have been investigating. And I don’t want to comment at this point or not what the state of that evidence is.”

The evidence Adam Schiff claims to know about Russian collusion seems false, since he hasn’t provided anything substantial, but what seems accurate is that there’s enough compelling evidence that reveals he’s a potential liar and accused leaker. It’s one thing to change your mind but it’s another to purposefully contradict yourself in pertinent matters regarding national security.

Judicial Watch filed an official complaint on Rep. Adam Schiff in March 2019, with the Office of Congressional Ethics about controversial communications between him and two congressional witnesses. A revelation revealed that Rep. Adam Schiff had met with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS whilst Simpson was a congressional witness, and with the help of his staff, also coordinated with Michael Cohen on Cohen’s testimony to congressional committees.

What readers may not understand is that for a member of congress to have outside contact with a witness in an ongoing investigation is potentially criminal. Judicial Watch postulates that Adam Schiff appears to have violated the House Code of Conduct, as you can see here:

“This letter serves as our official complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) concerning the activities of Rep. Adam Schiff. Rep. Schiff appears to have violated House Code of Official Conduct, Rule 23, clauses 1 and 2, by inappropriately communicating with witnesses. Clauses 1 and 2 provide:

1.A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.

2.A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall adhere to the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House and to the rules of duly constituted committees thereof.”

Press reports have given detailed evidence that both Rep. Adam Schiff and Glenn Simpson had a meeting and discussion at the July 2018 Aspen Security Forum, which they both happened to attend. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, told House investigators that Adam Schiff traveled to New York at least four times to meet with him for over 10 hours, right before his public testimony.

All of this evidence brings up a greater concern outside of whether Adam Schiff is a trustworthy politician or not. This real question is, where does this kind of political corruption cease? When are politicians going to be held accountable for this type of behavior? This isn’t a left or right issue, this is an issue with corruption within our government.

No matter who you are or what side you take a stand with, everyone including politicians, should be held at the same standard of the law. That’s justice and that’s the primary pillar of our Republic.
