Trey Gowdy Slams ‘Partisan, Wannabe Senator’ Adam Schiff for Flipping on Declassification

Former Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) called out House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for flipping his position on declassification.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced that he had given Attorney General William Barr the green light to start the declassification process for the origins to the investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign.

This declassification process will reveal whether the intelligence community had sound evidence to obtain the warrants that began the probe into Trump’s campaign.

Schiff was one of many Democrats that was upset to see President Trump’s announcement. He took to Twitter to accuse Trump of being “un-American” and somehow connected the declassification to a “coverup.”

While this is how Schiff feels about declassification now, he didn’t feel this way under former President Barack Obama. Just prior to Trump’s first days in office, Schiff took to Twitter and called on Obama to issue the declassification order on the Russia investigation.

Gowdy wasn’t surprised to see Schiff flip on the issue of declassification. During an interview on Fox News, Gowdy claimed that Schiff has always been an “overly ambitious, partisan, wannabe senator.”

He also noted that Schiff embraced the leaks at the beginning of the Trump administration when several Obama holdouts were still staffing the intelligence community, but now he fears that Barr’s office will leak information.

Watch Gowdy’s comments on Schiff:

“Here’s the thing: Schiff is an overly ambitious, partisan, wannabe senator from California so your expectations should be exceedingly low for Adam Schiff. What I find amusing is the duplicity with which the D.C. media covers these events. Remember in 2016 and 2017, the front page of almost every major newspaper was some leak of classified information. In 2016 and 2017, they didn’t care about that. Now, they’re concerned that Bill Barr as he looks into the origins of this investigation may disseminate classified information.”

Gowdy reiterated that he believes all expectations for consistent judgments from Schiff on declassification should be “really low.”

I was so disappointed when he decided not to run. He had had enough, saying that it was too difficult to get anything done.

Adam Schiff hates President Trump so much that he will go to any means to discredit, get him out of office, even try to impeach him……I am still waiting for his positive proof that President Trump worked with the Russians….shameful

The Dems will ramp up the rhetoric around impeachment, hoping to keep enough focus on Trump that people will not pay attention the the soon-to-be-released IG report that will no doubt put the Dems into the frying pan.

They may ramp it up, but will they actually do it? I hope so. It will negatively impact their image to voters and they know it.

So…more posturing and posing and noise.

I love your trusting nature. The House Special Committee on Benghazi was going to prove the conspiracies true that had been proven unfounded in the first 8 committee investigations. The FBI was going to “Lock her Up” in the email server investigation. Devin Nunes Intel Committee was going to prove the Steele dossier was false. The Mueller investigation was a “witch hunt.” Trump ordering McGahn to fire Muller was “fake news.” Tax cuts were going to pay for themselves. Separation of families was going to deter migrants. Courier was not going to move operations to Mexico and not cutting Indianapolis… Read more »

My my, you are long winded. As mentioned in another post you try to sound smart. Your theme song must be Elton John’s “The Joker”. “In my thick skull the joker hides”.

Not only long winded, but just plain rude, too. Likes to call people who think for themselves fools. I guess she thinks she knows better than all of us fools.

Could the Schiff man be just a tad worried that full transparency for those documents may cause the Dems to be exposed for the true fungus they are? Who knows, maybe this beady eyed little cretin is worried that his name is floating around in those documents? Never know but those documents are going to be gold. That is exactly why the Dems are fighting with their last breath to keep them undercover.

The Dims lost the election in 2016. Now, despite their worst efforts, Mueller has sunken their legal options for a coup. What’s left to them is politics and IF they try for an unmerited impeachment it will go badly for them in 2020.

Apparently YOU still have not read the Mueller report or listened to Mueller’s news conference. You sound like the woman at the Grand Rapids town hall that said she had no idea that there was anything negative of Trump in the Mueller. She claimed she listens “mostly to conservative news.” When the Mueller report is taught in history classes, it will be the actual report, not alternative facts.
