Democratic Representative Adam Schiff has been accused of leaking highly classified documents for several years.
The new allegations are quiet concerning considering, Schiff previously served as the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee .
The bombshell reported stems from former Secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
Pompeo stated “during my time as CIA director and secretary of state, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him.”

The Conservative Brief broke the story:
Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been accused of leaking classified information for years and now that he’s running for the U.S. Senate, several top figures are refusing to let people forget about it. Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently argued that Schiff should no longer have access to it.
“During my time as CIA director and secretary of state, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him,” Pompeo said, noting that Schiff played a crucial role in the Trump-Russia investigation, which was plagued with leaks to the media for years.
“It’s a complicated process, right? It’s difficult to pin down precisely what happened,” Pompeo said. “But I could tell you that when we provided information to him and to his staff, it ended up in places it shouldn’t have been with alarming regularity. We could see it. In the end, I decided I held back information from them as a result.”
Last month, McCarthy defended his decision to remove Schiff from the House Intelligence Committee.
“Let me be very clear and respectful to you,” McCarthy responded at one point. “You ask me a question, when I answer it, it’s the answer to your question. You don’t get to determine whether I answer your question or not, okay? With all respect, thank you. No, no. Let’s answer her question.”

The New York Post added more details to the story:
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday lauded House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s decision to kick Rep. Adam Schiff off the House Intelligence Committee, accusing the California Democrat of leaking classified information when he was on the panel.
“Adam Schiff lied to the American people, and during my time as CIA director and secretary of State, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him,” Pompeo alleged during an interview with Fox News.
Pompeo, who served on the Intelligence Committee with Schiff when he represented Kansas in Congress, said that McCarthy (R-Calif.) was “exactly right” to boot the California Democrat, and he argued that Schiff’s tenure as chairman on the panel “almost ruined that committee.”
Pompeo added that as secretary of state, he was troubled by Schiff’s behavior and didn’t feel comfortable providing the intel committee information.
The big question is, if Pompeo knew why didn’t he do anything about it?
