Adam Schiff has weasled his way back into the news again.
In an interview with on CBS, Schiff said that President Donald Trump should not receive intelligence briefings ever again.
Schiff claims that due to President Trump’s alleged role in the Capital building seige attempt, in which the president called for peaceful protests and condemned violence, the president can no longer be trusted.
That’s rich coming from a serial liar like Schiff…
CBS News has more on the interview:
Congressman Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday he doesn't believe President Trump should receive intelligence briefings after he leaves office, as he "can't be trusted" with the nation's secrets.
"There is no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing — not now, not in the future," Schiff said in an interview with "Face the Nation." "I don't think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future he certainly can't be trusted."

Schiff's concerns about whether the president should continue to have access to intelligence come after Sue Gordon, the former principal deputy director of national intelligence from 2017 to 2019, said in a Washington Post op-ed that Mr. Trump should not receive intelligence briefings after January 20, as he poses a "potential national security risk" as a private citizen.
"[I]t is not clear that he understands the tradecraft to which he has been exposed, the reasons the knowledge he has acquired must be protected from disclosure, or the intentions and capabilities of adversaries and competitors who will use any means to advance their interests at the expense of ours," Gordon wrote.
Schiff noted that in the course of his presidency, Mr. Trump has politicized intelligence, which is "another risk to the country."
"Indeed, I think there were any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn't trust the president would safeguard that information, to protect their sources and methods," he said. "And that makes us less safe."
Here's Schiff's interview on "Face the Nation."
Schiff's comments come after the former deputy director of national intelligence, Sue Gordon, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post advocating for barring President Trump from any post-presidency intel briefs.
Fox News has more on the op-ed:
Former principal deputy director of national intelligence Sue Gordon advocated barring Trump from post-presidency intelligence briefings in an op-ed in The Washington Post on Friday.
"Every former president in the modern era has benefited from a unique national security perk after leaving the White House: routine intelligence briefings and access to classified information to support his continued involvement in advancing America’s interests. These briefings have been a matter of respectful convention and were granted by the new president to the old," Gordon wrote. "My recommendation, as a 30-plus-year veteran of the intelligence community, is not to provide [Trump] any briefings after Jan. 20."
Gordon said Trump will be different from other former presidents because of his plans to stay highly involved in politics.
"He leaves, unlike his predecessors who embraced the muted responsibilities of being a 'former,' with a stated agenda to stay engaged in politics and policy. No departing president in the modern era has hinted at or planned on becoming a political actor immediately after leaving office," she wrote.
Adam Schiff of course has a history of telling lies.
