Judicial Watch SLAMS Adam Schiff: He’s Being Protected by His Colleagues After Violating Ethics Rules on Classified Info
President Trump unleashed a fiery tweetstorm Monday morning calling out the D.C. swamp. In fact he said the swamp is much worse than we thought and called it a sewer!
One of the tweets was directed towards “Sleazy” Adam Schiff. The president said the Dem Rep is a biased Congressman who spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff has done over 14 HOURS of T.V. interviews since Trump took office. All Adam Schiff does is repeat the Dem playbook of Russia, Russia, Russia with ZERO evidence of collusion.
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) has done 123 national television interviews totaling more than 14 hours of air time since January, according to a tracking report provided to the White House.
The report comes on the heels of President Donald Trump attacking Schiff on Monday for his frequent TV appearances. The vast majority of them have been on cable networks CNN and MSNBC, although Schiff has also done interviews on Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, Comedy Central, and HBO.
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton slammed Adam Schiff in a viral tweet saying, “Adam Schiff is being protected by colleagues despite his evident violation of House ethics rules on classified info.”

As TGP reported back in April, Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jackie Speier for violating House ethics rules.
Via Judicial Watch:
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today sent a hand-delivered letter to the chairman and co-chairman of the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Jackie Speier (D-CA) “disclosed classified information to the public in violation of House ethics rules.”
Citing the ethics complaints filed against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) charging that he “may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, regulations, or other standards of conduct,” Judicial Watch wrote:
If the standard for filing a complaint or opening an ethics investigation is that a member has commented publicly on matters that touch on classified information, but the member does not reveal the source of his or her information, then the complaints against Chairman Nunes are incomplete insofar as they target only Nunes. At least two other members of the House Intelligence Committee have made comments about classified material that raise more directly the very same concerns raised against Chairman Nunes because they appear to confirm classified information contained in leaked intelligence community intercepts.
On March 21, 2017, the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff spoke to an audience at the Brookings Institute in which he commented on an intelligence community intercept of a December 29, 2016 conversation between Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislayak and retired U.S. Army General Michael Flynn, who had been selected by then-President Elect Donald Trump to serve as National Security Advisor. Both the fact of the conversation and the conversation’s contents were leaked to the news media and reported widely. In his Brookings Institute speech, Rep. Schiff stated:
And then you have leaks that expose malfeasance or illegality. Now, I put that kind of leak, I put the Flynn leak in that category. And what was most disturbing to me, frankly, about that was: here you had a situation where the president is informed that his national security advisor . . . has lied to the vice president, and probably others . . . about a conversation with the Russians over sanctions imposed over hacking in the election to help the president.
