The reason? Because he leaks “like a screen door on a submarine.”
On Thursday, House republicans called on Schiff to step down from his position as Chairman of the committee, an unprecedented move.
Gowdy was asked to comment on the circumstance.
“Never seen that before,” said Gowdy, who served on the intelligence panel before leaving Congress in January.
“We never voted to remove or ask a chairperson to step down,” he added.
It’s a testament to Schiff’s gross inability to retain the confidence of the House panel that they would request such an action.
“Adam is a deeply partisan person. He did everything he could to make sure Hillary Clinton became president. And he’s done everything he could to keep a cloud over the Trump presidency,” Gowdy stated.
The former congressman explained that Speaker Nancy Pelosi could potentially remove Schiff as chairman, and that the CIA and other intelligence agencies could withhold information from Schiff.
“The next thing that’s going to happen is the … different intelligence entities are going to say, ‘You know what, Chairman Schiff, if you don’t believe the information we provide to you … if you have the president of the United States, not just indicted but in jail and you continue to leak like a screen door on a submarine, we’re going to quit giving you information,’” said Gowdy.
“That’s when Pelosi will replace Adam Schiff with someone like [Connecticut Rep.] Jim Himes, who is someone who is a smarter and a lot more reasonable.”
He is wrong.
And, apparently, he knew he was wrong all along, but thinks the American people are too stupid to recognize his lies.
In May 2017, he said he had seen “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion, but that was untrue.
Special counsel Robert Mueller delivered a report to the Justice Department on March 22, which stated that President Trump had been vindicated on all collusion claims, and specifically that his investigation “did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
That wasn’t for lack of trying.
Mueller and his team of rabid democrat hit-men and women looked for nearly two years for some sort of ‘evidence’ against Donald Trump, but all they found was an attempted set-up by Hillary, the DNC, and Fusion GPS.
Plus, Schiff has generally been the source of leaked information to the media regarding the Russia probe.
The Daily Caller reported:
Donald Trump Jr. has accused the Democrat of leaking an inaccurate story about him in December 2017. During Trump Jr.’s private testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, CNN broke a story that Trump Jr. had received an email Sept. 4, 2016, that included a link to WikiLeaks materials.
The story was a bombshell at the time because it suggested Trump Jr. received WikiLeaks documents before they were released to the public. But CNN’s sources turned out to be wrong. The email was actually dated Sept. 14, 2016, a day after the information was published.
