Adam Schiff Receives Backlash After Calling AG Barr Investigation ‘Un-American’

Epoch Times: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has attracted widespread criticism for his recent comments where he described the Justice Department’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation as “un-American,” following President Donald Trump’s announcement to declassify documents pertaining to surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election.

On May 23, Schiff wrote on Twitter: “While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.”

“The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American,” he added.

The California congressman’s comments appeared to be in response to Trump’s direction to the heads of several agencies including the FBI, CIA, State Department to fully cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s review made on May 23.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” Trump stated in his announcement on Twitter. “The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information.”

The president added, “Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”

Additionally, the president released a memorandum late May 23 that authorized Barr to “declassify, downgrade, or direct the declassification or downgrading of information or intelligence that relates to the Attorney General’s review.”

25 Comments on Adam Schiff Receives Backlash After Calling AG Barr Investigation ‘Un-American’

  1. Hide under your beds, Democrats.
    Scary monsters are coming for you.


    You’re about to get what you deserve.

  2. Hope he’s Schiffing in his pants right now. Hope the Schiff hits the fan for a bunch of these piles of Schiff.

  3. To me, Adam Fullaschiff has replaced Schmucky Schumer as having the most punchable face in Congress, even more so than Nutty Nan. I’d just love to be able to grab him by the throat and squeeze, and make those bulging eyeballs of his even bigger! ;^)

  4. “Holy HUAC, Batman! Pencil-Neck has got enough McCarthium to destroy the last of his credibility!”

    “Indeed he does, Robin.”

    “So, to the Batmobile then?”


  5. The “coverup” seems to be the Lefts new buzz phrase in their continuing attack on Trump.

    Has anyone heard any of them stating specifically what is being covered up?

    As far as I can tell from what I know, no one has actually claimed a specific crime that has been committed that is being covered up or what about it is being covered up.

    Could someone could bring me up to date on this?

    In any event, the Democrats need to quiet down about Barr and anything he is investigating after all the blind investigating they have done and are still doing.

    In love, war, and politics, turnabout is fair play.

  6. “conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies”

    That is exactly what Obama, Hillary, Lynch, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Rice, Mills, the DOJ, CIA and FBI actually did.

    If you are guilty accuse the other side of doing what you have done.

  7. Faustian: Adj, A situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in a pact with a demon in order to achieve power and success for a limited term, after which the devil collects his or her soul.

  8. Panic, sheer panic…as Schiff et al should be. Using projection of everything the lowlife swamp-dwellers have actually done when over half of America knows it was them is chutzpah on steroids. Really odd is it seems they have no idea they are massively losing, which at this point is comical.

    Therefore, let the games begin…and yes, WE will be “entertained” (h/t Maximus)

  9. We know that at the very least, he leaked, and we have good evidence of at least one instance — Don Jr.’s closed-door testimony.

    I want him perp-walked.

  10. Get the information out and put these assholes on defense.

    Leaving my cheese out in the wind gets real old.

    Tick tock. Bombshell’s coming. Doc dump 7 of 23.

    FFS get on with it you prickteases. Time is of the essence while they move at the speed of government.

  11. speaking of rinos running for cover I wonder what romney is thinking. I wonder if Barrs investigation will go back that far. He threw the election on purpose

  12. Gee Wally, I never thought watching a grave-digging contest would be so fun!

    Yeah Beave, I hoid that deep down democRATs are good people.
    Let’s see how deep they can go!

  13. @Walpurgis, Faustian, positively an option.
    I was going to ask; Just how lacking in self-respect and self-awareness one must be to carry on like a mad man, in the face of unsurmountable evidence?

  14. Collusion isn’t a crime.
    After 2 years of pursuit by enemies, President Trump was cleared of the non-crime of “collusion.”
    Now he’s being accused of “covering up?” What, exactly? How does one “cover up” something that didn’t occur?

    Like a 6 year-old with chocolate smeared on his face, claiming he didn’t eat the candy, Schiff is outing himself, his partei, and his lying doctrine.

    What would he know of “American” anyway?
    First – he’s a stooge from California.
    Second – he’s a nihilist.
    Third – he’s a socialist.
    Fourth – he’s a liar.
    None of the four is even remotely “American” in the sense of promoting “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

    izlamo delenda est …

  15. If you want to know what cunt democrats have up to, then just look at what they accuse everyone else of doing.

  16. Saw an advert for a “That 70s Show” marathon Memorial Day weekend. Later I saw an advert for a Dumbass Marathon, I thought they were the same thing, from Eric’s dad frequently calling people dumbass.
    But it could be a different show about Alan shiftless-brain.
