Schiff Says There’s No Circumstance’ Where Trump Should Ever Receive Another Intel Briefing

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is warning officials against providing intelligence briefings to President Donald Trump after he leaves office.

The host of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Margaret Brennan, asked Schiff if he would urge the Biden administration to deny Trump access to intelligence briefings.

“Absolutely. There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future. I don’t think he can be trusted with it now and in the future, he certainly can’t be trusted,” Schiff said.

He added, “There were, I think, any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn’t trust the president would safeguard that information and protect their sources and methods and that makes us less safe. We’ve seen this president politicize intelligence and that’s another risk to the country.”

Former FBI Director James Comey also weighed in on the issue of Trump receiving intelligence briefings after the end of his presidency, as IJR previously reported.

“That is all controlled by the director of national intelligence who will have to take a very hard look at whether Donald Trump should be given information, including any information that might be sensitive to the security of the United States,” Comey said during his appearance on “The View” on Friday.

He continued, “The guy’s a lying demagogue who you can’t trust and so you’d want to be very, very careful about what you give him. I’m hoping he will have been stripped of the perks of a former president by being convicted by the U.S. Senate and barred from further participation in public office and maybe that will be a reason for them to cut it off entirely.”

The president is expected to leave Washington, D.C., on the morning of Inauguration Day on Wednesday, as IJR previously reported.

    NO BIGGER LIER THAN ADAM SHIFTY SCHIFF!

  2. Gee, Comey (the Looming Doofus) and Schiff (pencil-dick) are so look impartial.
    What about Xiden and China? Xiden, Brennan, Obama and Kerry and Iran? Swalwell and bang bang fang fang? PeeLousy for putting Swalwell on committee again?
    Xiden and Ukraine? Obama, Xiden and Brennan vs Israel?

    Or, more likely, His Majesty would use that kind of information to keep the few sycophants, such as the My Pillow Man, around him, because he told them something from which they could profit.

  4. Of course trump shouldn’t receive any intelligence briefings. The first thing he’d do is blab to his buddy Putin. Either intentionally out of spitefulness or unintentionally out of stupidity.

  5. And yet you have Swalwell sitting on an Intel committee…the congressman who went bang bang with Fang Fang, a known Chinese operative. Schiff you are a freak. I can’t imagine what skeletons are in your closet. The whole dem party is a clown show.

  6. Schiff and Comey – two of the most unbelievable liars around. Whine Cellar interviews of liars to info to oust the President. Neither of these two nor Pelosi really has any business being around anything concern the operations of the USA. NO CREDIBILITY!

    1. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

      There isn’t a smart or patriotic part of his royal, corpulent body, Doris! Give it a rest, will ya? It’s over and Dear Leader will soon be just an historical footnote.

  7. I’m more than a little certain that there’s no circumstance under which this lout – sh***y shifty schiff – ever should have had an intel briefing either, yet lo and behold, he sits on the intel committee! Can’t think of a better case to evidence the bad judgment coming out of the US House of Representatives in the last decade or so.

  8. Meanwhile, those that have personally interacted with Chinese spies like Feinstein, Swalwell, and Biden get briefings. This country is headed for the crapper.

  9. “There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future.” Adam Schiff

    I can’t really think of anything that anyone would want to consult him about, for his level-headed and insightful opinions. OTOH, he is the ONE person that I can think of who would use that kind of information for personal gain.
