Adam Schiff opened up a new and wide-ranging investigation into all things President Trump and no one is happy.
Remember, Devin Nunes led a year-long investigation into Trump and Adam Schiff was on the committee.
Most of it was behind closed doors so the members are the only ones who have access to the full information and it begs belief that Adam Schiff didn’t get to ask all these questions before.
But here we are and expect the investigations to be long and arduous and very political. Fox News Brian Kilmeade for one wants Trump to investigate Adam Schiff.
From The Hill: “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade asked early Thursday why President Trump doesn’t open an investigation into the personal finances of Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.), questioning how they got “rich.”
“Why not investigate Adam Schiff? Why not investigate Maxine Watters? How did they become rich?” Kilmeade asked judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano.
“Because the Democrats control the Congress and they’re not going to investigate their own,” Napolitano replied.
“Doesn’t the president have an attorney? Why doesn’t the president run a private investigation onto Adam Schiff?” Kilmeade asked after some crosstalk.
“Because the president, if he’s going to use the power of the government to do anything, has to do it through the [Department of Justice],” Napolitano noted.
Trump and Schiff traded verbal blows on Twitter on Wednesday after the new House Intelligence Committee chairman said he would open an investigation in the president’s personal finances and possible ties to Russia.
Schiff stated he would launch an investigation to find out if any of Trump’s decisions since becoming president have been compelled by personal financial gain.
“The president’s actions and posture towards Russia during the campaign, transition, and administration have only heightened fears of foreign financial or other leverage over President Trump and underscore the need to determine whether he or those in his administration have acted in service of foreign interests since taking office,” he said in a statement.
Trump hit back this morning in a series of early morning tweets:
“So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so. Never happened before! Unlimited Presidential Harassment….”
