As we’ve learned from an exceedingly graphic Wikipedia article on the subject, there are those among us who get off on being humiliated publicly. Why were we looking at this article? Well, we were trying to figure out what exactly makes House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff tick. Is it a sexual kink? Does he enjoy the humiliation and embarrassment that comes with strutting around like the infamous naked emperor? What could possibly explain this week’s announcement from Schiff that he has a brand new whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump? Surely the Ukraine embarrassment was enough humiliation for one lifetime!
Where’s that Bandi X. Whatshername chick when you need her?
Anyway, from Fox News:
The House Intelligence Committee received a whistleblower complaint claiming Trump administration officials at the White House and the Department of Homeland Security suppressed intelligence reports related to Russian election interference, Democratic Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Wednesday.
In a statement, Schiff said former Intelligence and Analysis Acting Under Secretary Brian Murphy filed the whistleblower reprisal complaint on Tuesday with the DHS Office of Inspector General.
“We’ve received a whistleblower complaint alleging DHS suppressed intel reports on Russian election interference, altered intel to match false Trump claims and made false statements to Congress,” Schiff, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “This puts our national security at risk.”
He added: “We will investigate.”
Not an hour had passed before a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement denying the claim.
“The Department generally does not comment on the specifics of OIG referrals, but we flatly deny that there is any truth to the merits of Mr. Murphy’s claim,” said spokesman Alexei Woltornist. “DHS looks forward to the results of any resulting investigation and we expect it will conclude that no retaliatory action was taken against Mr. Murphy.”
We don’t need any further reason to doubt the veracity of anything brought to the public by Schiff, of course, but it is especially suspicious that this comes after the White House announced that they would scale back briefings to Congress on intelligence matters relating to Russia and the election. They made this announcement because Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee were leaking like sieves to the press. Is this just Schiff and the Dems trying to get back at Trump for the slight? We wouldn’t doubt it.
Any American citizen or media outlet that falls for the Schiff charade this time should really get a refund on their lobotomies, because the doctor clearly took too much out.
