Trey Gowdy Rips “Deeply Partisan” Adam Schiff: He “Leaks Like A Sieve”


Trey Gowdy made an appearance on America’s Newsroom Friday to give his two cents into the whistleblower complaint against President Trump alleging he said something troubling during a phone call with a foreign leader.

Conversation came up regarding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s concerns about not having access to the whistleblower complaint. 

Gowdy gave some insight into exactly why the information is being kept out of Schiff’s hands,

“I warned people weeks ago that if Adam Schiff continued to be the chairperson of the House Intelligence Committee, who’s one of the most deeply partisan members of the House, eventually people would stop sharing information with the Intelligence Committee, and apparently that’s what’s happened…

When you put someone who is wrong as often as Adam Schiff is wrong and is as deeply partisan as he is, in charge of the intelligence committee, then no, you’re not going to share confidential information because Adam leaks like a sieve.”

Fox News has more to say:

Former South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy told “America’s Newsroom” on Friday that people have stopped sharing information with the House Intelligence Committee because its chairman, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is the most “deeply partisan” member.

“When you put someone who is wrong as often as Adam Schiff is wrong and is as deeply partisan as he is, in charge of the intelligence committee, then no, you’re not going to share confidential information because Adam leaks like a sieve,” Gowdy said.

A whistleblower complaint that reportedly involved allegations President Trump made a troubling and unspecified "promise" to a foreign leader touched off a Washington firestorm Thursday, as the intelligence community’s top watchdog was questioned by Congress on the matter and the president adamantly denied the accusations.

The Washington Post reported that a U.S. intelligence official filed the formal complaint in regard to Trump’s communications with the unnamed foreign leader. Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire would not share details of it with lawmakers.

The Washington Examiner also commented:

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy castigated House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as someone who "leaks like a sieve" in explaining why U.S. officials may hesitate to share classified information with the California Democrat.

          

After being alerted to a whistleblower complaint sent to the Intelligence Community inspector general that reportedly relates to a "promise" President Trump made to a foreign leader, Schiff has frantically sought it out. He has been met with resistance from acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

          

Gowdy, a former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was asked to weigh in on the controversy during a Fox News interview on Friday and singled out Schiff for criticism.

          

“When you put someone who is wrong as often as Adam Schiff is wrong and is as deeply partisan as he is, in charge of the intelligence committee, then no, you’re not going to share confidential information because Adam leaks like a sieve,” Gowdy said.

          

Schiff has accused Trump's acting spy chief of defying a statute requiring the complaint, which the inspector general found to be of "urgent concern," be handed over to the intelligence committees within seven days. Maguire's office, after consulting with the Justice Department, disagreed, saying it does not have to hand over the complaint to Congress because it goes beyond the Maguire's purview by relating to someone outside of the Intelligence Community.

          

“That’s the consequence of putting someone that partisan as the head of the intel committee,” Gowdy reasoned.
