The conservative accountability watchdog hand delivered a letter to the House Office of Congressional Ethics on Friday, alleging that Schiff, a ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, disclosed classified information to an audience at the Brookings Institute in March.

Judicial Watch explained that during his speech, Schiff commented on an intelligence community intercept of a conversation between Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and retired US Army General Michael Flynn, who at that point had been chosen to serve as National Security Advisor for then-President Elect Donald Trump.

“And then you have leaks that expose malfeasance or illegality.  Now, I put that kind of leak, I put the Flynn leak in that category.  And what was most disturbing to me, frankly, about that was:  here you had a situation where the president is informed that his national security advisor . . . has lied to the vice president, and probably others . . . about a conversation with the Russians over sanctions imposed over hacking in the election to help the president,” Schiff said in his speech.

The group also notes that the Daily Caller had reported that Rep. Speier commented publicly about the Kislayak-Flynn conversations, as well as Flynn’s unmasking, saying “now, if in fact, it was unmasked and if it was General Flynn.  You have to understand the context in which it was unmasked. We do know that. Ambassador Kislayak and General Flynn were freelancing sanctions relief at the end of December, when he had no portfolio in which to make any kind of negotiations with Ambassador Kislayak.”

Judicial Watch explained in their letter that as ethics complaints have been filed against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, alleging that he “may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, regulations, or other standards of conduct,” Schiff and Speier must be investigated as well.

“At least two leading Democrats, Reps. Schiff and Speier, on the House Intelligence Committee seem to have improperly disclosed classified information,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “While the Ethics Committee examines Rep. Nunes’s innocuous statements on Obama’s surveillance on the Trump team, it ought to expand its investigation to include the other members of the Intelligence Committee who seem to have flagrantly violated the rules.”

Schiff has been one of the loudest voices spreading allegations of Russia meddling in the US election by colluding with the Trump campaign.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

on

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
