Rep. Adam Schiff (D.Calif.), is believed to be interested in the Senate seat currently held Dianne Feinstein,89. Rumours swirl about if she will retire before 2024, after more than 30 years of service, and persistent questions regarding her mental health.
The manipulative Democratic lawmaker, however, is about to lose his position as House Intelligence Committee Chairman in the wake of House Republicans taking control. However, Schiff is still engaging in the same behind-the scenes search and destruction antics that slithery objects such as Schiff engage in when no one is watching.
Schiff accidentally sent a letter intended for his Democratic colleagues to the House Republicans, exposing himself in this latest instance.
In one version, he advised his colleagues to press Facebook (now called “Meta”) to keep their bans on former President Donald Trump’s FB account and Instagram accounts. After the January 6, 2021 Capitol Riot, Facebook initially suspended Trump. However, in June that year, they voted to lock him out until at least January 7, 2023.
Another version of the letter was sent by Schiff to Meta, requesting that they keep Trump (who last month declared his 2024 presidential candidacy) off the platform “beyond January.”
Evidently, Rep. Diana Harshbarger (Republican from Tennessee) was among the Republican members who received the error copy of the letter urging Democrats to pressure Facebook. It was something she wrote about on her Twitter account:
Screengrabs below of the letters are shown. These screengrabs are, interestingly enough, not on Schiff’s press release page at this writing.
Schiff also wrote letters to Meta in the past, urging them to intensify their censorship tactics regarding alleged “vaccine Misinformation” and “spread [of] deadly hate, conspiracies and misinformation.”
This is the first instance of Schiff using his Congress power to lean on Meta for their ban or continuation of their ban on certain accounts. It also comes as we learn more about the level of Democratic lawmaker involvement in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story on Twitter by the New York Post in October 2020.
Republicans ripped Schiff in December 2019 after he released the personal phone records, among others, of Devin Nunes (R.Calif.), two former Trump personal attorneys, Rudy Giuliani and John Solomon.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), wrote that the act was “brazen and shameful” at the time. It may not have been illegal, because Congress has its own rules for investigating investigations, but it was certainly wrong. It violates rights that are normally protected by the left.
Paul said, “But it most importantly, it exposed that Schiff, for all his pompous bluster is doing exactly the same thing he has accused Trump of doing: using power to investigate his political enemies.”
Unfortunately, Schiff is a living example of the old saying that you can’t teach an older dog new tricks. His power will be significantly diminished when the new Congress is in session in January.
