(NewsBreakDaily.org) – When the news broke in the New York Times over the weekend that Russia has allegedly been paying the Taliban bounties for dead American and coalition soldiers, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) acted all shocked and outraged. He quickly demanded the Trump Administration immediately brief the full Congress on the allegations.
But it turns out that shady Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, has known about the alleged Russian bounties since February, yet he did nothing about it.
On Tuesday, The Federalist reported Schiff’s top staff was briefed in February about the intelligence during a congressional delegation trip to Afghanistan. At least he acknowledges that President Trump was never told about the situation. But, he has so far refused to admit that his staff was personally briefed.
It seems as though Schiff is yet again deliberately lying about and politicizing intelligence for his own partisan gain. Why else would this be in dispute?
A reporter asked Schiff directly on Tuesday if he had any prior knowledge of the Russian bounty story. He responded, “I can’t comment on specifics.”
The congressman has been blasting Trump for taking no action against Russia over this situation. But he’s known about it since February and has done nothing about it himself. He could’ve briefed the intel committee and convened hearings. He could’ve told the gang of eight. He could’ve done a lot of things. But he did nothing.
