Schiff Suggests Top Intel Officials Resign Over Trump Efforts to Declassify Russia Docs

House Intelligence Chairman and Russia hoax perpetuator Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) urged top intelligence officials to resign if pressure to declassify key Russia documents became too great.

Schiff told the New York Times that CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats should follow former Defense Secretary James Mattis’ lead and resign if they are asked to do things that jeopardize intelligence community members.

“If it gets to a point they are asked to do things that are unlawful or jeopardize the men and women that work within the I.C., they should speak out and, if necessary, follow the example of Secretary Mattis,” said Schiff.

Schiff threw a fit last week when President Trump granted Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify key Russia investigation documents which would expose the deep state’s unauthorized spying of the 2016 Trump campaign.

“This is a president who will lash out and destroy anything if he believes it will suit his interests,” said Schiff. “And he now has a capable lieutenant in the attorney general to help him do just that.”

“While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies. The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American,” Schiff tweeted.

The Washington Examiner notes:

Although Haspel has yet to speak out about the order, Coats offered some reassurance about the limited scope of what can be made available to the public.

“Much like we have with other investigations and reviews, the Intelligence Community will provide the Department of Justice all of the appropriate information for its review of intelligence activities related to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election,” Coats said in a statement Friday. “As part of that process, I am confident that the Attorney General will work with the IC in accordance with the long-established standards to protect highly-classified information that, if publicly released, would put our national security at risk.”

Trump Admin Has More Female Top Advisers Than Obama, Bush or Clinton

While many on the left continue to breathlessly and desperately push the false narrative that President Trump is anti-women, it turns out, he has more top female advisers than Presidents Obama, Bush or Clinton.

The Washington Examiner reports that the President has seven top female advisers, compared to five for President Obama, three for Bush and five for Clinton at the same time during their presidencies.

The Examiner writes, “The top advisers are White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway; CIA Director Gina Haspel, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, senior adviser Ivanka Trump, Director of Legislative Affairs Shahira Knight, and Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp.”

It’s reported that Trump will nominate more women to powerful posts soon, including Kelly Craft for U.N. ambassador and Jessie Liu for Rod Rosenstein’s position of Deputy Attorney General.
