The Democrat controlled House of Representatives has one particularly nasty troublemaker. After wasting months of time and millions of taxpayer dollars on the kangaroo impeachment court, Adam Schiff is now up to his ears in scalding hot water. By creating his own personal Deep State surveillance network, Schiff allegedly used America’s spy apparatus to target friends of the president. Now, the Intelligence Committee chairman is “caught in the cross-hairs of a formidable government agent,” as the FCC probes the California Democrat’s obliteration of “ethical boundaries.”
A sneaky Deep State rat in the house
Since Schiff didn’t have much in the way of an impeachment case, he desperately “issued secret subpoenas to phone carriers hoping to mine the private data of his political opponents.” According to American Thinker, what he really did was “in effect ransacking their private lives.” The objective, rumors say, “was to obtain and publish the calls of Trump’s allies.”
As chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Schiff is in charge of supervising the NSA, CIA, FBI and all the other alphabet spy agencies. At this very moment, Federal Communication Commissioner Brendan Carr is digging into the “diabolical nature” of the congressman’s “surveillance state,” formally investigating Adam Schiff’s violation of privacy laws.
The communications giants dutifully turned over 4,000 pages of confidential records, violating their customers’ data privacy rights in the process. The FCC has decided to seek “a $200 million fine against the phone carriers for failing to protect their customers who have a legitimate expectation of privacy.”
Secret subpoenas used as ‘abusive’ tactics
Carr wrote a letter to the entire House Intelligence Committee, asking if their leader is “continuing to issue secret subpoenas?” Carr didn’t mean that as a snarky comment either, he was serious. It means he considers what Schiff did to be the equivalent of running “roughshod over the private lives of political opponents while employing abusive impeachment tactics.”
With shadowy cloak-and-dagger maneuvers, Schiff targeted “some of the president’s most ardent supporters.” Besides the subpoenas, Schiff even hit Republican leaders with “a gag order” to keep them from complaining.
People like the president’s own attorney, Rudy Giuliani, conservative writer John Solomon, and the ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes were “blindsided by the process because they were deprived of their legal right to fight the surveillance requests.”
A major bombshell
You can rest assured that the biggest bombshell coming out of the Carr investigation won’t make the mainstream news. Carr slammed Schiff for the way he kept blatantly “exceeding his authority” by releasing private phone records without “any apparent nexus to the Committee’s legitimate work.”
Conservatives aren’t surprised that Schiff would ignore the rules because he has the distinct reputation as “the ‘go to’ Trump-hating politician.” His MSM cronies bend over backwards to amplify anything he spews forth, as long as it demeans the president.
When he was cooking up the House impeachment plot, it was standard operating procedure to hold “secret meetings in the bowels of government buildings.” That way, he could block “all Republicans from attending.”
Mr. Carr isn’t very happy with the Intelligence Committee as a whole either. They let Schiff create the “effectively unreviewable and unchecked mechanism for obtaining call records on any and all Americans,” out of “whole cloth in secret.” Conservatives are glad to see someone standing up to “protect the public from having to ask themselves who else’s life is being plundered by powerful politicians abusing their office. It’s time to remind Rep. Schiff, “no one is above the law.”
