Adam Schiff has been playing the role of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland (perhaps an unfortunate analogy for a California Democrat, NTTAWWT) in the House Intelligence Committee probe into we’re not really sure what. He’s been proclaiming loudly and frequently that Trump was in collusion before any evidence has been presented just like the Queen of Hearts proclaiming, “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”
As I posted last night, Schiff was given the opportunity to review the same documents seen by Nunes yesterday. To my surprise he actually looked at them. I’d fully expected him to dismiss them sight unseen because by his nature Schiff is a partisan hack and unrepentant douchenozzle and that is just how he rolls. After looking at them he released this statement:
The response I would have expected from Schiff would have been to dismiss them, say they were nothing, and this is a distraction. Let’s look at what he says. First, he starts misrepresenting what has happened. The White House could not have given them to the committee because, as the Fox News report details, the White House didn’t have the documents until a leaker provided Nunes with a list of document numbers, Nunes was stonewalled by the intelligence community, and made his own arrangements to view the documents.
He covers a begrudging acknowledgement that the material should be examined by the committee with another lie, that the White House gave Nunes the material. The fact that Schiff totally ignores the information and bitches about the process tells you all you need to know about what he saw.
If Schiff has questions about why Nunes acted the way he did, he need look no further than his own behavior. Schiff has been peddling allegations of conspiracy and collusion instead of even giving the pretense of being objective. Small wonder the leaker approached Nunes privately rather than revealing himself to Schiff and a subsequent savaging by Schiff and his Democrat followers. The very fact that the intelligence community refused to allow Nunes to see the documents he request, necessitating NSC intervention, speaks volumes for the way the intelligence community has tied itself to Obama and his administration.
