REPORT: Schiff Hired Two Aides who Worked With Ukraine Whistleblower

Adam Schiff continually lied to the public during the Russia investigation and a new report indicates that his questionable tactics have only gotten worse.

The chairmen of the House Intelligence Committee reportedly hired two former National Security Council aides who worked closely with the whistleblower.

According to Town Hall:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) hired two National Security Counsel (NSC) aides who worked with the Ukrainian whistleblower while at the NSC during both the Obama and Trump administration, the Washington Examiner reported. 

Abigail Grace worked at the NSC from 2016 to 2018 in U.S.-China relations, followed by a short stint at the Center for a New American Security think tank. Schiff tapped her in February to work as an Intelligence Committee staffer to help investigate the Trump White House. 

The second aide, Sean Misko, worked as an NSC aide until 2017. He was also part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's policy planning staff under Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. He joined the Intelligence Committee as a staffer in August, the same month the whistleblower filed his complaint.

...

When Grace was initially hired in February, Trump took issue with it, saying Schiff was "stealing" people from the White House to work for the Intelligence Committee. 

It remains unclear whether this creates a conflict of interest but it does look shady at least on the surface.
