Schiff Mobilizing Intel Committee To Oppose Trump’s Efforts To Restore Order In The USA
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has sounded the alarm. Rep. Adam Schiff is using the intelligence committee to investigate the President and hopefully handcuff him over his use of federal officers to restore order.
Nunes told Breitbart News on Sirius XM 125:
“It hasn’t gotten too much coverage yet. They’re running an investigation from the Intelligence Committee, which has become the impeachment committee, on the situation that happened up in Seattle and Portland. But guess what? They’re running the investigation to see what federal assets did the Trump administration use and was it legal or not to keep the peace in the Pacific Northwest. So they are going to hold hearings, but they’re basically holding hearings to condemn the Trump administration for trying to save Americans’ lives and save Americans’ property and save us from all this looting and rioting and trying to keep under somewhat of some civil discourse here. So, they’re having hearings alright, but for the opposite reason.”
“Essentially what they’re doing is the Department of Homeland Security, which Trump deployed obviously to protect the federal courthouse and other federal areas, they’re running an investigation into the Department of Homeland Security from the House Intelligence Committee which once again the irony of all of that is the House Intelligence Committee is supposed to be bipartisan,” Nunes said. “It’s supposed to have our focus on things like China, Russia, North Korea, counter-intelligence, and terrorism. But that’s clearly not what they’re after. What they’re doing is, first of all, they impeached the president using the Intelligence Committee but if that’s not enough here you have assets that the president is trying to use to help protect the government and federal property and they are now running an investigation into whether or not the president properly used that equipment or not to help aid in protecting federal property.”
So there you have it, instead of helping the Trump administration stop the violence and chaos Democrats are trying to hinder them.
Nunes’s above comments is around the 14:30 mark.
