Schiff Pre-Emptively Spins DOJ’s Criminal Probe into Russia Hoax

'One of the concerns I have with Bill Barr is that the worst is yet to come...'

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff is nervous about U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia-Gate hoax and how Attorney General William Barr could use it.

Schiff suggested in a recent episode of the Talking Feds podcast that Barr would use Durham’s investigation to “protect the president” and go after his “political enemies,” including some of the congressional Democrats who pushed the debunked Russian collusion conspiracy.

“One of the concerns I have with Bill Barr is that the worst is yet to come,” Schiff claimed.

“I mean, he’s got a terrible, destructive track record as it is, and it may get worse in the coming days,” Schiff explained. “But what we have seen largely is Barr’s intervention to protect the president.”

Barr doesn’t just use a “shield” to “protect corruption writ large of his boss,” Schiff said. He uses a “sword,” or “the “power of the Justice Department through Durham or others to go after the president’s enemies.”

“And so I continue to be concerned with the president, who is tweeting about how Obama and Biden should go to prison, that Bill Barr may be preparing the use of the sword in a politicized and dangerous and desperate way,” Schiff said.

Barr has repeatedly said that he does not expect Durham to target either former President Barack Obama or presidential candidate Joe Biden.

He did, however, tell Fox News last month that there would be “developments” in Durham’s investigation by the end of the summer.

Schiff has blasted Durham for keeping his committee in the dark, but Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that it’s a “good thing” that Durham and “his people” aren’t talking.

“I think that’s a good sign that this is a real, legitimate investigation that’s occurring,” Nunes said.

Durham’s investigation is likely unnerving to Schiff because he knows that the many lies he and other congressional Democrats used to push the Russia-Gate hoax are about to be exposed.

The full transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia-Gate investigation confirm that Schiff repeatedly lied about a “smoking gun” that would implicate Trump, when the reality was that there was no concrete evidence backing Democrats’ claims at all.

“It was a very dangerous situation what they did,” President Trump said during an interview with Fox and Friends. “These are dirty politicians and dirty cops and some horrible people and hopefully they’re going to pay a big price in the not too distant future.”
