So here comes the rest of it.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is urging the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., regarding his communications with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson and President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

“Rep. Schiff has an ethics problem. His and his staff’s irregular communications with anti-Trump witnesses reflect poorly on the credibility of the House and its committees’ investigations,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement Monday.


“It has long been apparent that Rep. Schiff can’t be trusted to lead the Intelligence Committee, so we hope that Democrats on the Ethics Committee stop protecting Mr. Schiff and take action.”

It’s certainly true that Adam Schiff can’t be trusted in the position he has. But that kind of begs the question, “what Democrat can be trusted these days,with the position?

I submit that the answer, clearly, is “Not a one of them.” For proof of this I point to the Stone Cold fact that the ethics complaints registered by judicial watch on this matter will go absolutely nowhere.

  1. Eric, one wonders if there is a connection between this and your previous post.

  2. You mean that Pelosi recognizes that Adam Schiff and the ethics complaints against him make him a less-than-ideal standard bearer for the impeach Trump movement?

    yeah I heard a couple of different people make mention of that idea today. I gather that Limbaugh mentioned something about it as well though I haven’t bothered checking the transcripts yet. I might get to it tomorrow.

    Thing is, Given that they’ve never been worried about the optics of such matters previously, one wonders how bad the situation with Shiff has to be tell her to suddenly get cold feet like that. It would be unusual for judicial watch to be able to make so direct a hit.

    So, well I’m willing to entertain the notion, I’m not sure I want to give Pelosi that much credit just yet. Ihat may change tomorrow, of course.
