Congressional leakers like Adam Schiff need to be investigated and prosecuted - sm

Posted: Sep 16th, 2020 - 6:39 am

On Aug. 29, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe informed congressional leaders that they would no longer get in-person briefings on election security because of “… unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information.” Their briefings, he said, would be limited to written, finished intelligence products.

The following day, Mr. Ratcliffe explained to a television interviewer, “Within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes.” He added that his intention was to stop “a pandemic of information being leaked out of the intelligence community.”

The Democrats’ reaction was intense. Despite the fact that written briefings can be leaked as just as easily as oral ones, Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), threatened to subpoena Mr. Ratcliffe and force him to testify. Mr. Schiff said that live testimony “forces accountability” and that, “When you can hide behind documents or withhold documents and not have to answer questions about it, it lets you conceal the truth.”

It is enormously amusing to hear Mr. Schiff arguing for accountability and truth considering his performance over the past three-and-a-half years.

Before 2019, when Mr. Schiff became HPSCI chairman, his predecessor, Rep. Devin Nunes, used the power of the committee to investigate the FBI-CIA spying on President Trump’s campaign. Mr. Schiff fought tooth and nail to prevent disclosure of information Mr. Nunes was developing while a flood of anti-Trump “Russia collusion” leaks to the media came from either Mr. Schiff, his staff or other Democrats. When Mr. Schiff took the role of HPSCI chairman, the leaks increased.
