Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) blasted House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and suggested he should be removed from his position.
Rep. Matt Gaetz:
When Devin Nunes put out his memo and Schiff put out his response, you heard the mainstream media say “Oh, the Nunes memo has now been debunked by the Schiff memo, this is obviously the truth” Well, we now have something that we rarely get in Washington politics: an actual verdict.
An actual result from the Obama-appointed Inspector General saying Nunes was right all along, Schiff was wrong.
Although that’s a great point and although it may actually help Republicans electorally, it is also a problem. “Why does that matter?”
Schiff is not just a member of Congress, he’s a member of the Gang of 8. So there’s intelligence as an Armed Services Committee member that I cannot see, but I have to rely on Schiff and others in the Gang of 8 to correctly assess that intelligence and give us their accurate perceptions.
That is one of the reasons that I have filed legislation expressing the sense of the House that Schiff should be removed as the Intelligence Chairman so that we at least get clear eyes on the most important intelligence analysis that faces the country.
