Like its counterpart in the Senate, the House Select Committee on Intelligence traditionally has been one of the most bipartisan in Congress because the national security is so acutely tied to confidentiality and demonstration of strength through putting America first and politics a far second. Enter neo communist Adam Schiff (D-CA) who now chairs the committee for the Democratic Party majority. Schiff has been one of the most outspoken of the current Administration. So much so, that the entire Republican delegation on the committee has called for his immediate resignation as chairman because of his refusal to accept the Special Counsel's report clearing President Trump of wrongdoing.
Congressman Mike Conaway (R-TX) read the letter before the committee Thursday. He said, "
Your willingness to continue to promote a demonstrably false narrative is alarming. The findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions, and have exposed you as having abused your position to knowingly promote false information. Having damaged the integrity of this committee, and having undermined the faith in the United States government and its institutions, your actions both past and present are incompatible with your duty as chairman of this committee...As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as Chairman of this Committee."
After saying that he accepted the Special Counsel's report, Schiff then responded with his liturgy of charges against Trump, totally countering the very findings of the Special Counsel. Schiff listed dozens of the same accusations that the media and the Democratic Party have been and continue to use against Trump and his Administration. He punctuated each accusation by beginning it with, "You might say it's OK to..." and ending it with, "I don't think it's OK." He insisted Trump colluded with Russia, saying it was immoral, unethical and unpatriotic. He refused to allow Republicans to respond to his angry retort. Schiff's double-speak shows he does not accept the Special Counsel's findings as he said he does.
The recent Democratic Party media talking points on the Special report ignore the findings of the very report the Democrats instigated. The line that is repeated by Schiff and other Democratic Party leaders is: "There is obvious evidence of collusion and obstruction." The two key findings of the report were that there was no collusion or obstruction. Yet, these people continue to refuse to accept the findings of the very investigation they demanded. Meanwhile, Ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News that committee Republicans will submit criminal referrals to the Department of Justice for false claims committed regarding the Russian investigation. Proverbs 12:22 says, "Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight." May there be justice in truth.
