Bombshell Report: Adam Schiff’s Campaign Sinks to New Low And This Will Surprise No-one

Congressman Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, is facing an ethics complaint over his campaign video. The video features a clip of Schiff presenting his case for then-President Donald Trump’s second impeachment on the Senate floor, which according to a watchdog group called the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), is a violation of congressional rules.

FACT wrote a letter to the House Ethics Committee, citing federal law that states that appropriations should only be applied to the objects for which they were made, except as otherwise provided by law. This law prohibits members from using official resources for campaign or political purposes.

Official resources include anything funded by taxpayers, such as a member’s official website, social media accounts, and photographs and video from the House or Senate floor. Both the House ethics rules and Senate rules specifically identify Congressional video of floor proceedings as official resources that members are prohibited from using for political purposes.

FACT further notes that a member is prohibited from using either House or Senate photographs or video because both are official government resources. This includes any photograph or video footage of floor proceedings, even if it was reposted from a third-party source.

Schiff is accused by former CIA director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of leaking classified information throughout the Trump administration. Pompeo notes that Schiff played a crucial role in the Trump-Russia investigation, which was plagued with leaks to the media for years.

Pompeo said that he could tell that when they provided information to Schiff and his staff, it ended up in places it shouldn’t have been with alarming regularity. Pompeo decided to hold back information from them as a result.

In January, newly-elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) made good on a previous pledge to remove Schiff from the committee once Republicans took control of the chamber.

McCarthy cited the concerns about Eric Swalwell, who had a relationship with a Chinese spy, being appointed to the Intel Committee. The FBI had briefed McCarthy and Nancy Pelosi about the issue.

The accusations against Schiff are serious and merit an investigation into his actions. As an elected official, Schiff should be held to the highest standards of ethical conduct.

It is unacceptable to use official government resources for political purposes, and leaking classified information is a violation of national security.

The American people deserve elected officials who put their duty to the country above their own personal interests. Hopefully, the House Ethics Committee will conduct a thorough investigation into these allegations, and appropriate action will be taken if warranted.
