In Washington, D. In Septemberthe House Select Committee on Intelligence, then led by California Republican Devin Nunes, voted to release the transcripts of every interview conducted during their "Russian Collusion" hearings that had all been conducted in secret. Democrats led by Schiff, who was the ranking member at this time agreed and the vote was a very rare unanimous ballot. The transcripts were then sent to various intelligence agencies for final clearance and there they have stayed with no discernable timeframe for their release.
Until now. This week, Grenell notified now-Chairman Schiff that the transcripts have been fully reviewed and are now ready for release. Byron York at The Examiner has the exclusive report on Grenell's letter to Schiff, which included a devastating passage:. Just in case Schiff is still not interested, Grenell added, "I am also willing to release the transcripts directly from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as to ensure we comply with the unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts.
In other words: You've already voted to release these and you probably thought we'd all forgotten about that because these transcripts were back-burnered before I got here, but now I'm here and I intend to see this through. If you don't release them, I will. Why does this box Schiff in?
Remember, during the first several years of the Trump presidency, Schiff would frequent any and all television news shows that would have him so he could accuse the president of criminal wrong-doing. He went so far as to suggest that he'd seen evidence that Trump had criminally conspired with Russia, but it was all classified, so we'd have to wait until this mountain of evidence was declassified before we could see it.
When asked directly by NBC News' Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" in March if he had anything more than circumstantial evidence to support his repeated claims of criminal collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Schiff said: "I can tell you that the case is more than that and I can't go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.
But, you know, trust him, he's Adam Schiff. The Acting DNI has given the transcripts the greenlight and Schiff's secret evidence against Trump no longer has to remain secret. You'd think the California congressman would be leaping at the opportunity to reveal this evidence against Trump and finally be vindicated.
And yet, Mr. Schiff demures. As of this writing, there has been no official response from the chairman's office. Schiff, who demanded full and complete transparency from the White House on Russia and Stormy Daniels and Ukraine and any other fever dream impeachment fantasy he and Maxine Waters have dreamed up, is now strangely silent when there is absolutely no legitimate reason left for these transcripts not to be released to the American public.
Washington, D. In the era of Donald Trump, the resistance Democrats and Never Trump Republicans have raised the stakes on that game to heights never-before-imagined in this God-forsaken town. Until now, Trump has seemed like the only player on his team who has been willing to play just as smart, just as tough and just as devastatingly ruthless as the forces aligned against him. Grenell has proven that he is more than equal to his boss's gamesmanship and, the beauty of this Bobby Fischeresque move is that he is completely justified by the truth and supported by the law.

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff of California speaks to the media last month. Schiff is leading the charge in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Adam Schiff has been a ubiquitous media presence criticizing President Trump. Trump, an omnivorous television news consumer, has returned the favor, tweeting disparaging comments about Liddle' Schiff.
But, beyond that, the California Democrat and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has had something of an unlikely path to becoming the face of the Democrats' impeachment inquiry and, in turn, the Democratic Resistance. His congressional district, California's 28th, includes Hollywood.
But it wasn't always so pro-Democratic. In fact, Schiff got into Congress, ironically, by defeating a Republican, Jim Rogan, who was a staunch critic of Bill Clinton and spoke out against Clinton during his impeachment.
Schiff was able to leverage Clinton's impeachment for his gain, as Clinton friend and entertainment mogul David Geffen promised to help raise millions to unseat Rogan. The result? Schiff had just ousted an incumbent Republican, so what did he do when he went to Congress?
So he didn't always have this liberal reputation. In fact, he supported the authorization for use of force in Iraq and voted for the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act expanded law enforcement's ability to surveil Americans with the goal of preventing more terrorist attacks. But the privacy infringements outraged civil libertarians. Schiff grew more traditionally liberal, as his district did. Before running for elected office, Schiff worked in the U.
His most famous case was the first-ever conviction of an FBI agent for espionage. The agent had been taking bribes from Russians.
It took three trials over six years to secure the conviction. Schiff then ran for office, but lost three times for state Assembly before eventually winning a state Senate seat and then Congress.

His wife, by the way, is named Eve. A friend set them up inplaying doubles tennis. Schiff is also a vegan — described by Rolling Stone as a "mild-mannered-judicious, vegan.

During a speech in New Hampshire you know, that early voting primary stateSchiff said, per the Los Angeles Times"I'm only running for the House, but I'm honored to be asked the question.
And: "It's fun coming up here, and I enjoy the idea that I might cause certain heads at Fox News to explode [if I ran. But his options are limited. He's not running for president, despite the flirtation, so maybe he can hope for a Cabinet position if a Democrat wins the White House.
