Mr. Transparency is at it again. Fox News is reporting that GOP members of the House are accusing Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the Intelligence Committee of blocking their requests to acquire the transcripts of his committee Russiagate interviews. “A letter penned by House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-OH, and signed by nearly two dozen House Republicans, calling for access to interview transcripts and other material obtained during the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe.”Adam Schiff release the transcripts

Obviously, these documents contain exculpatory information about President Trump as Schiff acts as if his number one goal in life is making sure this President gets booted out of office. To be totally honest, I have sent in a request to sit next to Schiff at Trump’s second inauguration, so I can taunt him.
The letter, directed to Schiff, D-Calif., and committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., referenced the panel’s investigation into “Russian active measures to influence the 2016 presidential election, including whether individuals associated with the presidential campaigns worked with Russia,” which began in January 2017.
The committee “after interviewing 73 individuals and reviewing over 300,000 documents” issued a report in 2018 revealing that “the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia,” it states. It adds that the committee voted in September 2018 to release “53 transcripts.”
“We understand now that Chairman Schiff is blocking the release of these transcripts,” they wrote. “This news, if accurate, is disturbing—especially in light of Chairman Schiff’s cries in 2019 for transparency regarding allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
Gee, I remember when Adam Schiff demanded transparency. But that was only when he thought transparency would hurt President Trump.
The letter continued by saying, despite the fact that President Trump has been cleared, Congressional conspiracy theorists like Schiff continue to say that he colluded with Russia.
““For nearly four years, prominent Democrat politicians ad commentators alleged that President Trump colluded with Russia, with Chairman Schiff going so far as to say that he had ‘direct evidence’ of collusion,” they wrote. “Now that these allegations have been disproven by several investigations, the American people deserve to have transparency about why public figures such as Chairman Schiff continue to promote such wild accusations.”
Additionally, the letter says the transcripts are needed to aid in the investigation of the FBI in light of the revelations about the entrapment of General Flynn and George Papadopoulos
