Today, 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.
It is time for AG Session's to use his authority... too direct an immediate investigation into Rep. Schiff's alleged illegal release of classified information... It is time for Pres. Trump to " faithfully execute the Office of President... and too... take care that the Laws be faithfully executed...", by focusing on those violations of the law coming out of the halls of Congress and those agents of the swamp in DC, who apparently believe they are above the law..
One can not drain the swamp if they are unwilling to prosecute violations of the law... it is time too apply the same pressure Trump is using on Syria, Korea and ISIS to those lawless elements operating as the representatives of the people. I continue to be disappointed in Pres. Trump's weak kneed approach to taking down the Swamp and those in it.
Where's the street fighter we elected? I thought we were hiring a Teddy Roosevelt or Andrew Jackson, not a Jimmy Carter...as President. If Sessions and Comey are unwilling to FOCUS their resources on CLEANING UP THE GOVERNMENT then let them resign or Pres. Trump needs to publicly fire them... Not one... not a single criminal act, by a host of subjects, has been pursued to its conclusion... Where are the indictments and trials Pres. Trump? It takes more than tweets, to Drain a Swamp.
By the way disclosing classified information to the President of the United States, in the course of one's duty, is not a violation of the law... Especially, when it is done for the purposes of exposing lawless conduct or for national security reasons. Both, reasons apply to the Nunes case, as the leaking of classified intercepts, regarding conversations with foreign powers, is both illegal and of national security interest.
They've done it again -- Democrats caught in their own trap
Congressional Democrats aren't like their more reserved Republican counterparts.
When Democrats detect the slightest hint of scandal among their foes, they attack -- it's like blood in the water to them. They might want to be more cautious next time.
Their latest feeding frenzy -- an "ethics probe" meant to neutralized this rising GOP star -- could soon have them eating two of their own ...
Legal beagle declares war on 'Deep State'
Now would be a good time for Susan Rice to lawyer up.
This powerful public-interest legal firm isn't amused by what it's calling "an orchestrated conspiracy" by government officials who used their positions and power to spy on political enemies.
For now, they've locked in on Rice and the NSA, but they show no interest in stopping there ...
So far, the war seems more like a mutual admiration society... as bipartisanship continues to be the theme of the GOP...
The GOP seems to be remiss in understanding... There can be no bipartisanship where one side is attempting to torpedo the other; while, intending on taking no prisoners. The GOP seems oblivious to the hate filled rhetoric and actions of the Democrat Party. They appear to be masochist, looking for more pain, rather than relief.
It is time for Trump to man up... where is the Bull in the China closet we elected? How can Trump drain the swamp if he is up to his neck in the swamp? Actions speak louder than words and Congressional investigations are a complete waste of time... they never result in indictments or accountability.
Patience, my friend.
