Schiff’s Evil Has No Bounds, His Latest Stunt Is Borderline Sedition
What House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff is doing is borderline sedition. Schiff is now actively working against the intelligence community and politicizing their efforts.
On Tuesday, Rep. Adam Schiff wrote a letter to Acting Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) Richard Grenell voicing his “concerns” over the staffing changes he’s made. Schiff’s letter detailed how the organization collection intelligence is setup and Schiff leaked his letter to the press before Grenell even received the letter.
“His letter was sent to the press before it was sent to me,” Grenell tweeted late Tuesday. “These press leaks politicizing the intelligence community must stop.”

Schiff is furious that the President removed all of his spies in the department and reduced the staffing of the ODNI to the size former President George Bush had it after 9/11. Schiff is trying to get his greasy hands back into the ODNI and attacked Grenell for making changes after he was ordered by the President to do so.
“President Trump did not nominate you for confirmation as permanent DNI, and it would be inappropriate for you to pursue any additional leadership, organizational, or staffing changes to ODNI during your temporary tenure,” Schiff wrote. “Any effort, moreover, to remove or otherwise initiate personnel actions against apolitical career officers based on their perceived loyalty to the President would contravene civil service protections.”
Schiff is now demanding that Grenell report to him by April 16th about his possible involvement in the firing of his other spy inspector general Michael Atkinson.
“The Committee is reviewing the circumstances of Mr. Atkinson’s dismissal, including whether his termination was intended to curb any ongoing investigations or reviews being undertaken by his office,” Schiff wrote.
Schiff’s letter comes after President Trump already told Schiff to basically “go pound sand.”
“This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from office the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, effective 30 days from today,” the president wrote in a letter to Schiff and House Intelligence Community Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif. “It is extremely important that we promote the economy, efficiency, and the effectiveness of Federal programs and activities. The Inspectors General have a critical role in the achievement of these goals.”
He added: “As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General. That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”
