Former GOP Representative Jason Chaffetz recently explained how Democrat Representative Adam Schiff could be in danger of losing his security clearance and could even be prosecuted.
According to Fox News:
On Sunday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe defended his decision to scale back in-person briefings to lawmakers on election security, telling “Sunday Morning Futures” that “within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes to create a narrative that simply isn’t true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China.”
In response, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told CNN Sunday that the Trump administration is “hid[ing] behind documents or withhold[ing] documents” and “concealing the truth [and] concealing Russians are again intervening to help the president in his reelection.”
Chaffetz explained what he thinks
DNI Ratcliffe should do:
“File a complaint at the Department of Justice and prosecute Adam Schiff,” he insisted. “I have seen it, I have heard it, I have listened to everybody complain about how he leaks classified information. Then prosecute him.
“I don’t understand why he has a security clearance,” Chaffetz added. “Nobody is able to describe that to me, because he has done this repeatedly, misrepresented information. It is documented, and he should lose his security clearance. But if he’s done something illegal, like leaked classified information, prosecute him.”
Chaffetz said strongly that if DNI Ratcliffe has evidence of Schiff leaking information he should be prosecuted and lose his security clearance. He also pointed out how Schiff clearly twisted Ratcliffe’s words in what amounts to another Schiff lie.
