Rep. Adam Schiff (CA-28) is going to be one busy little beaver for the next two years.  And we can trust he means business.

Imagine being on a committee for four years and being continually overruled by a “man” with 1% of your intelligence, and .01% of your integrity.  Devin Nunes (R-ass) has been a staunch protector of Trump, which, being a member of a co-equal branch of the federal gov’t, is not in his job description.

Now Rep. Schiff gets to pursue both the truth and revenge against Nunes.

He started by getting all Russia House testimony approved to be sent over to Robert Mueller’s office. 

But did he stop there?

Hell, no!!!

House Intel Dems Rebuff Nunes’ Flawed Russia Probe And Announce Do-Over

In an extraordinary rebuke to his predecessor, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) formally announced on Wednesday that his committee would be re-opening its Russia investigation to pick up on lines of inquiry that were left “uncompleted” by the committee investigation of the previous Congress, when Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was the chair.

[…]

“During the prior Congress, the Committee began to pursue credible reports of money laundering and financial compromise related to the business interests of President Trump, his family, and his associates,” Schiff said in a statement, that also pointed to the President’s actions since taking office that have “only heightened fears of foreign financial or other leverage over President Trump.”

“Unfortunately, these and numerous other avenues of inquiry were not completed during the last Congress,” Schiff said, a somewhat gentle reference to the obstruction and interference Intel Republicans were accused of leading during the last Congress’ probe.

[…]

Schiff laid out five specific lines of inquiry that were “not completed” in the last Congress, when Republicans held the gavel, that the committee will pick up on again.

They are:

(1)  The scope and scale of the Russian government’s operations to influence the U.S. political process, and the U.S. government’s response, during and since the 2016 election;

(2) The extent of any links and/or coordination between the Russian government, or related foreign actors, and individuals associated with Donald Trump’s campaign, transition, administration, or business interests, in furtherance of the Russian government’s interests;

(3) Whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates;

(4)  Whether President Trump, his family, or his associates are or were at any time at heightened risk of, or vulnerable to, foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure, or coercion, or have sought to influence U.S. government policy in service of foreign interests; and

(5) Whether any actors – foreign or domestic – sought or are seeking to impede, obstruct, and/or mislead authorized investigations into these matters, including those in the Congress.

Wow.

Just………………………WOW.

Let’s just stop and give a cheer for our California Caucus, shall we?

And f*ck McCarthy and Nunes.

Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker did not meet a Wednesday morning deadline to invoke executive privilege in advance of his testimony at a committee hearing later this week, according to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

Having not heard from Whitaker, Nadler sent a new letter reminding him that he will be expected at a hearing Friday to answer certain questions about his White House communications regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
