Intel Committee Ranking Dem Adam Schiff: “Can’t Release Memo Because American People Won’t Understand It”…

Fyi, here’s the spin from the other side of the aisle. The ranking democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, explains the reasons why the House intelligence memo should never be released.


CABRERA: “Let me ask you about the Russia investigation because I can’t have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunes memo, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, that he’s put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us about this memo? What exactly is it?”

SCHIFF: “It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge they’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause, once again, with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Julian Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hashtag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this. And that is —“

CABRERA: “Why not allow people to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it’s useful information or not?”

SCHIFF: “Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is. The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a fulsome attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the Bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”

CABRERA: “Adam Schiff, congressman, thank you.”

    Schiff is scared. He knows he is complicit in the scheme of things.
    He is trying to cover his own criminality…leaking to the press.

    let me decide if I can understand the criminal treasonous goings on in the DOJ/FBI/CIA/NSA. The fools running these agencies are now telling us that the emails are gone/lost/erased WTF-ever. I don’t believe them and I don’t believe you mr.Shittf.

      It wasn’t clear from that letter whether they asked for a list of all employees who had data lost in that period Or were Lisa and Peter the only ones. I’d also like to see ALL internal memos and procedures relating to the identification of having a problem with retention, when it was identified and efforts to collect the data. I have always heard that info is never really completely lost. But again, maybe they only forgot to collect/save Lisa’s and Peter’s.

    They said that the Wikileaks emails were stolen so no one should read them. Never addressing whether they are true or not. We all know they were true, but that never stops the Dems from putting up smokescreens. The people are starting to see though it.

    So when the memo is released, Schiff will call it spin without the underlying materials, which would be the FISA documents naming names. Let him run around saying this, and then announce that the underlying materials will be released. Then the corrupt FBI/DOJ agents will be known, along with the names of the private contractors who were given FISA-702 intelligence. Careful what you wish for.

    Here’s a link to the site. Check out their criteria. Shocking…

    How the Monitoring List Was Assembled

    The monitoring list is based on analysis conducted over the course of roughly three years, with the specific networks identified over the last year. The networks were revisited, updated and the list finalized in the summer of 2017. The three networks are based on the following criteria:

    We tracked disinformation campaigns that synchronized with overt Russian propaganda outlets like Sputnik and RT (Russia Today). We analyzed the social networks of users who were promoting this disinformation to identify which users were centrally involved, and to remove users who tweeted disinformation casually, after encountering it online.
    We identified a group of users online who openly professed to be pro-Russian and tweeted primarily in support of Russian government policies and themes. We analyzed followers of these accounts to identify a large and interconnected social network that tweeted the same themes and content.
    We identified accounts that appear to use automation (bots) to boost the signal of other accounts linked to Russian influence operations, or to be the beneficiaries of such Each of the above activity.”…

    I am sure, then, that Schiff is entirely in favor of releasing the underlying “materials”. I will attempt to understand the same. I will venture my IQ is well situated to understand these materials and is likely far enough beyond Mr Schiff to explain the same and even help Mr Schiff through the complex parts.

    Slippery, slimy, Schiff was saying the American people are too stupid to understand the difference between the Dem’s phony contrived Trump-Russia Collusion narrative and the growing mountain of facts and evidence that is steadily proving that some employees at the DOJ, the FBI etc. were being used as voluntary partisan tools by the Obama admin and the Hillary campaign. The only questions that still need to be answered are how high, how long and how deep is the corruption in these once “trusted and respected” organizations.

    The left loves to redefine and obfuscate. ie. Facts and evidence are now just Talking points because it is exposing them but their lies and distortions about Collusion were facts and evidence worthy of a Special Counsel. It’s discouraging that 1/2 of America at least still believes them.

      He and much of the left are also saying we are in league with Russian bots. Pretty insulting. That kind of patronizing is exactly why the left and media are so despised by most of America right now.

      If average Americans can’t understand it is only because anyone with an ounce of moral rectitude who doesn’t follow the blow by blow account here and elsewhere would have trouble believing that scandals of such magnitude and depravity actually took place in the United States of America.

    This looks legit…didn’t Judge Nap get suspended two weeks for explaining this exact message last year?


    • thinkthinkthink says:

      Fake, wrong first name for Steele.


    • The name “Michael Steele” is an error. Isn’t it Christopher Steele? There wouldn’t be an error like that in an official document.


      • Sorry for the ‘late’ info re Michael vs Christopher. I had page open in a tab and forgot to refresh to see additional comments. My bad.


        • V says:

          Yes, I g oogled to see if there was a relative of Christopher in MI5 but didn’t find anything. It’s either a fake doc or someone at GCHQ got the name and dept wrong when they drafted it for Dir. Hannigan. Since Hannigan resigned 3 days after Pres. Trumps inauguration, there may very well have been British collusion through Steele and there will be other evidence, so we don’t have to rely on this doc, sloppy or fake.


    • Ron McDonald says:

      Anyone else notice Schiff going out of his way to use the word “fulsome” in his interview? Personally, I’m holding back any excitement I feel as I don’t want to cloud my judgement with further confirmation bias, but his use of that word raised my hackles, it just doesn’t flow linguistically.
      “I think that spin, which is a fulsome attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI”


  13. ditzee58 says:

    Has Schiff even seen the memo? From everything I’ve read only 3 Democrats have seen it. Schiff started downplaying the memo almost immediately. My guess is that he had not seen it at that time. There are some who say that only 3 Dems have seen the memo because so many of them are named in the over 9000 sealed indictments, lol.

    Schiff, the little turd, needs to realize that he works for US. WE pay the smarmy little toad’s salary. When all is said and done, I think he’ll see who understands but it will be to his detriment.

      I believe there are 6 Dimms and 7 Rs on the House Special Intelligence Committee…..all 13 of them have seen it and then voted to make it available to the House in whole (vote was strictly down party lines) with restricted access in a SCIF…last count I had seen was 180 members had viewed it with 3 of those being of the Dimm variety


    • bayoukiki says:

      He’s on the committee whose members prepared it. Even if he hasn’t seen it he knows what is in there. That might explain why he’s been so cranky


      • V says:

        The ghost of Sandy Berger is going to enter Schiff’s head like a cold, commanding him to take the memo, stuff it in your pants and take it to Washington Post.


  14. van winkle says:

    schiff knows the truth will come out if it is released, and that everything he said above is a lie.
    he is betting it wont come out…………but it will sooner than latter, then he will not pass go and go directly to jail.

    The American citizens have the right to read and come to our own conclusion #releasethememos. Adam Schiff doesn’t not have the right to withhold from Americans. What is the slime ball afraid of.


  18. James Winchell says:

    I believe Mr. Schiff is making a blanket judgment of all Americans, based on the California voter base he represents. If this is the case, he would sadly be right in his asessment.

    Saddly for him, we are not the typical California, socialist voting base he represents. As such, I believe we are indeed capable of reading, understanding and drawing accurate conclusions from not only the memo, but also the underlying documents which I am sure (not!) he will support making public in order to assist us in our assesments.
