Trump Says Witch Hunt Continues as Schiff Hires Former Staffers for Committee

Trump Says Witch Hunt Continues as Schiff Hires Former Staffers for Committee

It seems that once again the Schiff has hit the fan, and President Donald Trump is furious. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has hired officials who worked at the National Security Council (NSC) to help with his panel’s oversight of President Donald Trump’s administration, according to a committee aide.

The aide did not reveal when newly hired officials worked at the NSC, or even if they did or did not work at the Council under Trump. Nonetheless, the move has enraged the President and some members of his senior staff, who view the movement as a deliberate intrusion and hostile jab at the White House by Schiff. It comes as Democrats prepare to wield new investigative power after winning a House majority in 2018.

He accused the ongoing investigations against him as raiding his staff. On Thursday 2/7 the president tweeted. “….The Dems and their committees are going ‘nuts.’ The Republicans never did this to President Obama. There would be no time left to run the government. I hear other committee heads will do the same thing. Even stealing people who work at the White House! A continuation of Witch Hunt!”

“Stealing People”

The White House later implied that Schiff, who announced a sweeping investigation into the President and his finances early this month, has recently hired or is interviewing officials from the administration to work on his committee that is now investigating the President.

An administration official told reporters to “ask Adam Schiff what that means” when asked about the President’s claim that the Democrats are “stealing people who work at White House.”

In response, the aforementioned House Intelligence Committee aide responded, telling the press that the panel has “hired individuals with experience on the NSC staff and that it would not discriminate about hiring individuals from the current administration.”

But the aide said no recent hire came directly from the White House.

“We have hired staff for a variety of positions, including the committee’s oversight work and its investigation,” the aide said. “Although none of our staff has come directly from the White House, we have hired people with prior experience on the National Security Council staff for oversight of the agencies, and will continue to do so at our discretion. We do not discriminate against potential hires on the basis of their prior work experience, including the administration.”

When asked directly, Schiff’s office declined to comment on whether any individuals from the Trump administration have been hired, leaving open the question of whether hires from the National Security Council worked under Trump or another President.

There have been many leaks, books, and “anonymous op-ed pieces” written by alleged current or former White House staffers who have an obvious agenda to undermine the president, and it seems that the Democrats who now possess sweeping investigative powers are trying to tap into that pool.

    Why shouldn’t they do investigations and use whatever resources they can. This president has lied time after time as to faults of his administration, or problems, as being caused by the democrats. He is a hypocrite and a liar, a crony to an admitted enemy of our country, and you think that we should be concerned as to what the Democrats do. How much efforts has this president made to cross the aisle and come up with reasonable solutions. Nope let’s kill the programs established by Obama no matter the cost to the Earth, its people, and children. Any man can be a good president and it doesn’t matter the party, but when you have an idiot who doesn’t give a damn other than he looks good and is praised as though a child, who cares what the Democrats do.

      Yep. Anf I really have trouble believing that trump is a victim of malfeasance when most of the overt acts are his, and the alleged perpetrators are people he has used and thrown aside like kitchen garbage.

      “who cares what the Democrats do.”

      That’s a lousy excuse for bad behavior or policy no matter which side uses it.

      “Oh look, Trump does this, so it’s OK if Democrats do that.”

      That sounds pretty childish, Chelemark.

    @thinkr2 this is just my interpretation but I do not think that is where chelemark was going in the comment. Rather, constantly harping on the media-click-bait-hijinks of the white house, is not a legitimate reason to ignore the legitimately important and relevant issues. The white house does not get to unilaterally determine what is important and what is not. And according to WH rhetoric, the acts of the Demos ARE NOT an excuse to keep throwing click-bait and attempting to keep the camera on Trump.
    It isn’t the DNC which is desperately trying to keep its face on the screen.
