Democrats have taken the release of the memo with the stoicism of somebody being chased by a lion while their hair is on fire. They’ve accused conservatives of everything from telling lies to all-out treason for releasing the memo. Then there’s Congressman Adam Schiff. He’s convinced the release of the memo is putting America at a greater risk of terrorist attacks. Yeah, for reals.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos said, “You know, you talked about this strategy to discredit the Mueller investigation. Is it working?”
“It is impeaching the FBI, and the problem with this, and this is I think at the heart of the department’s concern–is if you have a neighbor who’s buying fertilizer, lots of fertilizer, but has no yard and you have concerns about it and you want to call the FBI, you’re now going to wonder ‘Is that FBI going to hold my name in confidence or this information in confidence, what if this becomes politicized?’ Sources are going to dry up because of what the Republicans on this committee are doing now.”
The nerve on those evil Republicans. Putting us all in danger of getting 9/11-ed with their questioning of the FBI’s motives.
Schiff is overreacting, to say the least. Methinks people will still snitch on creepers at the same rate. In fact, people are more likely to not call the FBI on their neighbor for fear of being labeled an Islamophobic bigot. By the very same leftists who are oh-so-worried about terrorism at the moment.
If anything is worrisome, it’s a law enforcement entity that allegedly is using their position to make their political opponent’s lives hell. Keeping the Justice Department impartial is kind of a big deal. There’s nothing out of line with looking into their supposed biases.
Try again, Schiff.
