The latest news is that Moscow has been assisting the US president in the 2020 election. Donald Trump exploded in rage and fired his acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) likely screaming “off with his job.”
It appeared, that one of the DNI’s people was just doing her job of briefing the Democratically-held House of Representatives Intelligence Committee. Trump did not want Schiff to get word of this shady deal between POTUS and an enemy of the people, Russia.
Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) walked up to his oath of office and held Donald Trump”s feet to the fire. As chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he systematically and analytically led the impeachment hearings and the impeachment trial. He is a hero — living under death threats.
It all began with the news that Moscow has been assisting the US president in the 2020 election. Trump exploded in rage and fired his acting Director of National Intelligence and screamed most likely “off with his job:”
‘Russia is aiding President Trump in the 2020 election, intelligence officials told lawmakers. Trump complained Democrats might exploit the news.’
Schiff tweeted about “any threat of foreign interference in our elections.” Then, the representative wryly pointed out that this was what the committee had expected:
‘We count on the intelligence community to inform Congress of any threat of foreign interference in our elections. If reports are true and the President is interfering with that, he is again jeopardizing our efforts to stop foreign meddling. Exactly as we warned he would do.’
After that, Schiff issued the stinging warning that Trump’s actions created a national crisis “more grave than anything Nixon did.” Those roots have been twisted, gnarled, and tangled. Yet, Schiff offered the people hope that things were under control even as they were dire:
‘After Watergate, Congress passed reforms to safeguard the rule of law and root out corruption. We are working on new reforms now, because the threat Trump and his enablers pose to our democracy is more grave than anything Nixon did:’
Twitter world came out swinging. What do you think of these?
