Adam Schiff: Nunes Docs Came from Inside White House, New York Times Names Sources
Numerous sources confirm intelligence reports given to Nunes came from two White House officials.
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA) held an unscheduled press conference Thursday, March 30, 2017 stating “profound concern” regarding the way intelligence reports were potentially shared with chairman Rep. Devin Nunes.
The New York Times reportedly released the names of the White House sources. It has been revealed that two White House officials, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer working on national security issues, gave the documents to Nunes.
Representative Adam Schiff noted, “that White House staff has no reason to pass information to a congressional committee chairman rather than just delivering it to President Donald Trump directly.”
Schiff went on to say that his investigation will not be distracted due to this information and will continue on with its investigation regarding the Russia probe despite clearly being distracted by this information. He stated numerous times that he does not care about “incidental information” on the topic of the wiretapping of President Trump.
Democrats, once again, are concerned less about the material discovered and more about the ways in which the documents were discovered. Schiff asked, “Why all the cloak and dagger stuff.”
When pressed on whether the report was wrong, Schiff said that he was, “not going to get into it,” which raises the question: are Democrats attempting to distract the public from what is inside the documents?
Here’s a video of Adam Schiff blathering on about the Trump-Russia hoax. There is no evidence of Russian collusion, and massive amount of evidence of Trump being surveilled, but Russia, right?
Is saying he doesn’t care if Obama broke the law by spying on #Trump
