Democrats Twist Purpose Of Memo Release


Rep. Adam Schiff, left, accuses Rep. Devin Nunes, right, of a bait-and-switch by sending the White House a document for review different from one their committee voted on.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff, the individual whose name is at the center of a soon-to-be-released incriminating memo, just released a crooked statement. Schiff said that the recent vote, “put the president’s personal interest, perhaps their own political interest, above the national interest,” and shows “when you have a deeply flawed person in the Oval Office, that flaw can infect the whole of government.”

Schiff tried to cover his tracks explaining, “As I said to my committee colleagues during this hearing, sadly, we can fully expect that the president of the United States will not put the national interest over his own personal interest. But, it is a sad day, indeed, when that is also true of our own committee. Because today, this committee voted to put the president’s personal interest, perhaps their own political interest, above the national interest, in denying themselves even the ability to hear from the department and the FBI. And that is, I think, a deeply regrettable state of affairs. But it does show how, in my view, when you have a deeply flawed person in the Oval Office, that flaw can infect the whole of government. And today, tragically, it infected our committee.”
