Adam Schiff demands intelligence community share information on William Barr’s attempt to declassify FISA documents

May 31, 2019

  Last week the President gave William Barr the authority to declassify documents related to the origins of the Russia probe–namely documents related to the FBI’s alleged FISA abuses. This is an odd thing to do for a President who is supposedly involved in a cover-up and it is not sitting well with the Democrats.

  Now Adam Schiff is demanding the intelligence community report to the Intelligence Committee any attempt by William Barr to declassify any documents he does not want to see the light of day. Here is more:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff demanded on Friday that the nation’s intelligence community report to Congress any effort by Attorney General William Barr to declassify national security secrets over its objections.

Schiff made his demand in a letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, calling on Coats to brief his committee in person and to share any information that Barr has requested as part of a review of the origins of the FBI’s investigation of links between Russia and the Trump campaign. 

“This approach threatens national security by subverting longstanding rules and practices that obligate you and other heads of IC agencies to safeguard sources and methods and prevent the politicization of intelligence and law enforcement,” Schiff wrote.

  This is the same Adam Schiff of the same Democratic party that wants the whole Mueller report unredacted for the American people to see even though there might be national security secrets and the names of people still under investigation revealed. Now suddenly the Democrats are worried about national security? I would say they are more worried about their own job security and what might be uncovered in these documents as it relates to them.

    sounds like they are running out of options to bury the beginning. At least I get some comfort that a whole lot of people are having sleepless nights..
