How is it possible that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) has not been sanctioned for his demonstrable, deplorable, and disingenuous lying?

Schiff wrote a rebuttal memo that stated that Representative Devin Nunes’ memo detailing corruption and anti-Trump bias at the FBI was false and full of distortions and misrepresentations based on classified information in Schiff’s possession.

“The HP SCI Majority's move to release to the House of Representatives its allegations against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) is a transparent effort to undermine those agencies, the Special Counsel, and Congress' investigations. It also risks public exposure of sensitive sources and methods for no legitimate purpose. FBI and DOJ officials did not "abuse" the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”

As more and more information from the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of State, and other agencies are declassified, we now see that Adam Schiff is a bald-faced liar who knowingly lied to Congress and the American people.

Schiff continued to claim that he had “ample of evidence of collusion in plain sight” and that evidence of collusion has been borne out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Unfortunately, the Mueller Report turned out to be exculpatory and was replete with distortions, omissions, and other significant flaws – not to mention the abysmal performance of a clueless Mueller before Congress. So why did Adam Schiff refuse to present his “evidence” as part of the Trump impeachment trial in the United States Senate? Over and over, Schiff claimed he had special “classified” information which he never released.

Now comes the latest Schiff show…

It appears that Schiff is calling for another investigation into the Attorney General Barr’s statements concerning the firing of Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) Michael Atkinson.

There is no doubt that Adam Schiff and his staff colluded and conspired to engineer a complaint of President Trump’s allegedly illegal conduct on a telephone call with the President of Ukraine. It appears that Atkinson was part of the collusion, changing and backdating the requirements of an official complaint as well as misinterpreting the law governing his oversight activities. Atkinson testified before Schiff’s Committee, yet his testimony remains classified and was never presented to Congress.

Atkinson was fired for cause and the unclassified information supports claims of Atkinson’s malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance. Like the firing of FBI Director James Comey, the firing was justified and supported by incontrovertible evidence.

Except from the Schiff and Nadler letter…

We write to request that you investigate whether recent public statements by Attorney General William Barr regarding former Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) Michael Atkinson violated applicable Department of Justice (DOJ) policies and rules of professional conduct.

In a televised interview on April 9, 2020, Mr. Barr blatantly mischaracterized Mr. Atkinson’s conduct and DOJ’s own actions relating to the complaint filed last summer by an Intelligence Community whistleblower.

[OCS: If mischaracterizing information on a television show were worthy of investigation, Adam Schiff and almost every Member of Congress is guilty of unprofessional behavior.]

The complaint detailed President Trump’s efforts to coerce Ukraine to announce a politically-motivated investigation of his rival in the 2020 presidential election.

[OCS: Here the big lie is repeated. There was no coercion except in the minds of the Democrats who were trying desperately to find a hook with which to attack President Trump.]

Mr. Barr’s remarks followed the President’s admission on April 4 that he fired Mr. Atkinson in retaliation for Mr. Atkinson’s handling—in accordance with the law—of the whistleblower complaint.

[OCS: From what we know about FBI Director James Comey and ICIG Atkinson, both were fired for cause, and if justice is to be served, should be investigated and prosecuted.]

The House of Representatives’ investigation independently confirmed the whistleblower’s account of the President’s abuse of power, for which the President was subsequently impeached.

[OCS: Yes, the President was impeached by the Congressional Democrats on unprecedented and unconstitutional grounds – and cleared of wrongdoing by the U.S. Senate.]

Mr. Barr’s misleading remarks appear to have been aimed at justifying the President’s retaliatory decision to fire Mr. Atkinson.

[OCS: There is no proof that the President fired Atkinson as retaliation. But there is proof of Atkinson’s misbehavior.]

In maligning Mr. Atkinson and falsely portraying him as insubordinate, Mr. Barr misrepresented DOJ’s legal opinion concerning the whistleblower complaint.

[OCS: Where is evidence that AG Barr misrepresented anything? Especially because AG Barr appears to choose his words carefully and is not beholden to any political party.]

Mr. Barr’s remarks also ignored the impropriety of DOJ’s coordination with the White House to prevent a whistleblower complaint concerning presidential misconduct from reaching Congress.

In order to keep Congress in the dark about the existence of the complaint, the White House and DOJ collaborated to develop meritless justifications designed to circumvent the clear statutory requirement that all such complaints “shall” be transmitted to the congressional intelligence committees.

[OCS: The Inspector General of the Intelligence Community is restricted to investigating misconduct of the intelligence committees and has absolutely no legal authority to investigate Presidential activities or matters relating to foreign policy. The entire complaint was based on secondhand and sometimes bogus information from an individual who appears to have conspired with other individuals and Schiff’s staff to mount a political operation against the President of the United States.]

Public confidence in our system of justice depends on the integrity, fairness, and impartiality of DOJ’s leadership. It is, therefore, imperative that the Attorney General be held to the same high standard expected of all Department personnel, particularly in matters involving the President’s own interests. We appreciate your prompt attention to this request.

[OCS: Where were Adam Schiff and Jerome Nadler, when Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton before his wife’s FBI interview or when the leadership of the DOJ and FBI were found to be corrupt?]


Bottom line…

This is just another publicity stunt by Schiff and Nadler to demonize the President of the United States.

I am waiting for Schiff to release the Michael Atkinson transcript and the next Congress censuring or removing Adam Schiff – provided the GOP wins back the House, improves their Senate Majority, and retains the Presidency.

We are living in perilous times and can no longer afford to give any progressive socialist democrat the benefit of the doubt. They are an evil and malignant cancer on the body politic.

We are so screwed.
