Hypocrite Adam Schiff Rages at Steve Bannon


Executive Privilege – a claim by the President or another high official of the executive branch that he/she need not answer a request (including a subpena issued by a court or Congress) for confidential government or personal communications, on the ground that such revelations would hamper effective governmental operations and decision-making. The rationale is that such a demand would violate the principle of separation of powers among the executive, legislative and judicial branches. – legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com

House Democrats said Thursday they are looking at initiating contempt proceedings against former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, complaining that he cited “executive privilege” to brush off a host of questions during a tense closed-door interview with the House Intelligence Committee.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters that Bannon stonewalled “almost all of the questions,” with the exception of a series of 25 scripted questions from the White House — all of which he answered “no.” Schiff added that Bannon said he had been instructed to invoke executive privilege by the White House.

“That claim of executive privilege is breathtaking and insupportable and, indeed at times, it was laughable,” Schiff said.

Schiff said that Democrats will push for initiating contempt charges against Bannon, a move that would require support from Republicans on the committee. Schiff said Republicans appeared supportive and will confer with their leadership on the next step.

“He’s brought our committee together,” he said.

Executive Privilege…Executive Privilege…where have I heard those words before?

Oh, yeah. Now, I remember.

President Obama today invoked executive privilege to shield documents related to the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal from a congressional investigation, marking the first time his administration has invoked the right and the 25th time it’s been used since 1980. In response, a House committee voted Wednesday along party lines to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. The White House dismissed the proceedings as “political theater.”

Louis Fisher, author of “Politics of Executive Privilege,” questioned the legitimacy of the administration’s claim to executive privilege.

“If it had been legitimate, I think they could have raised it a year ago,” Fisher said. “It doesn’t look good to work with a committee for more than a year and then to pop out that this is executive privilege.”

The use of executive privilege to protect internal discussions and deliberations can be traced back to George Washington. However, it was the Supreme Court’s 1974 ruling in the Nixon Watergate scandal that established executive privilege as a legal right and set forth its appropriate uses. Since Nixon, executive privilege has been used in every administration, although some presidents invoked the power more frequently than others.

I swear, the Modern Democratic Party are nothing but a bunch of whining hypocrites.

The Congressman is having a “Schiff-Fit” because former Trump Administration Member Steve Bannon has claimed Executive Privilege in response to questions designed to ruin both him and President Trump…questions based on a Political Dog and Pony Show designed to try to remove our Constitutionally-elected President from office because he is not a Professional Politician and he is trying to actually fulfill his Campaign Promises.

Obama covering his as…err…backside from his part in the Fast and Furious scandal by provoking “Executive Privilege” to keep from being impeached did not bother the Democrats in Congress in 2012, I’m sure.

And, gosh. Do you know who one of those members of Congress on the Democratic Side who supported President Obama in 2012 during the Fast and Furious Investigation and his declaring “Executive Privilege” was?

I’ll give you 3 guesses. And, the first two don’t count.

Aww…you guessed.

From Yahoo News, June 27, 2012

Schiff, a leading advocate against holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on Thursday, replied “absolutely” when The Daily Caller asked him at a Wednesday press conference if “government misconduct” took place at anytime during the scandal.

…So, yes, we all acknowledge there are legitimate origins to this investigation but I think it has been untethered from that legitimate origin.”

“Untethered” meaning that Obama cut the rope which was going to tie him into the “misconduct” by claiming “Executive Privilege”.

Let’s face it, gentle reader. This whole Trump/Russia Collusion Fairy Tale has been nothing but an act of vengeance perpetrated by the Democratic Party, their minions in Congress, and their Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and FBI placed in motion to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Because, Lord knows, the Far left Democratic Party can’t have a Republican President actually succeed in fulfilling his Campaign Promises.

That would mean that the Professional Politicians on Capitol Hill would actually have to work with President Trump on behalf of Americans, instead of themselves, to help make American Great Again.

And. Lord knows…we can’t have that. That would be too much like “right” (as we say in Dixie).

What a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites.

Until He Comes,
