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.”

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.

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.
