A former Chief of Staff of the National Security Council claims Adam Schiff has broken the rules and should recuse himself from the impeachment inquiry.

According to The Daily Caller:

Former CIA officer and National Security Council Chief of Staff Fred Fleitz tweeted Tuesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “broke committee rules” and  “should recuse himself” from any impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

“The NYT confirmed what I said last week: Schiff knew about the CIA whistleblower in advance … At a minimum, Schiff should recuse himself from this impeachment inquiry,” Fleitz tweeted.

 

...

The former NSC chief of staff said Schiff is guilty of breaking Intelligence Committee rules by not sharing the whistleblower complaint with Republican members of the body because “classified info brought to the committee from outside sources MUST BE SHARED WITH BOTH SIDES.”


Fleitz suggested last week in an op-ed for the New York Post, that after analyzing the whistleblower’s complaint he found it too polished and that it had too much in common with the Democratic impeachment agenda — and an Aug. 28, 2019 tweet from Schiff.

Fleitz has claimed that the complaint and Schiff's actions are more than a coincidence and should be scrutinized more.
