Russia Hoaxer Adam Schiff Says He Hopes Intel Community Will Hide Info From Trump

After getting booted from the House Intelligence Committee for lying, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff told NBC News he hopes the intelligence community will hide crucial information from former President Donald Trump during the campaign season.

Schiff was asked Sunday while on “Meet the Press” whether he thinks it is “appropriate for [Trump] to receive intelligence briefings” even though the former president is “facing 40 felony charges for his handling of classified documents.”

“Well, that is the practice, but we’ve never had a situation where one of the candidates for president has been so criminally negligent when it comes to handling, if not worse, when it comes to handling classified information.

So I have to hope — and knowing the intelligence community as I do — that they will dumb down the briefing for Donald Trump. That is, they will give him no more information than absolutely necessary, nothing that would reveal sources or methods because we can’t trust that he will do the right thing with that information.”

Schiff spent years using his position as ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee to leak dubious claims or provide deceptive comments to the media to foment fear that Trump was a Russian asset before former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy booted him from his seat.

“Adam Schiff lied to the American people, and during my time as CIA director and Secretary of State, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News after McCarthy took Schiff off the committee.

Schiff said on MSNBC in 2017 that “there is more than circumstantial evidence now” linking the Trump campaign to Russia while telling CNN he had seen “the kind of evidence” a grand jury may want to view. Schiff continued to double down on his claims, telling CNN months later that there was “damning” evidence of collusion.

One year later, then-Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released a report detailing how the FBI obtained a surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign staffer Carter Page through a secret FISA court and did not alert the court that Christopher Steele, the man behind the discredited ‘Steele Dossier,’ was a spy.

The information was later corroborated by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

But Schiff sought to cast a shadow of doubt on the report and instead released his own memo falsely claiming the “FBI and DOJ officials did not ‘abuse’ the [FISA] process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”

Schiff then vigorously fought for big tech to “expose” and “deactivate” social media accounts that called on Congress to #ReleaseTheMemo, alleging they were foreign operatives — a claim the media piled on to.

Matt Taibbi later revealed through the Twitter Files that executives at Twitter told Schiff and other Democrats they could not identify “any significant activity connected to Russia.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller later released a report that there was no coordination between Trump or his campaign and Russia.

Special counsel John Durham also released a damning report in 2023 affirming that Trump and others were justified when they alleged the FBI improperly launched the Crossfire Hurricane investigation over alleged Russian collusion.

Hours after the report was released, the House voted 213-209 to censure Schiff for promulgating the hoax.

Yet Schiff is now openly calling for a military intelligence coup against the leading candidate for president because he’s indignant.
