(JustPatriots.com)- Republican members of the House are zeroing in on Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), accusing the Resistance superstar of somehow being complicit in the Afghanistan catastrophe.
In an interview with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney last week, Ohio Republican Jim Jordan said that Americans have a right to hear what Adam Schiff knew about the US policy in Afghanistan.
Jordan said that Schiff is among a group of Congressional Democrats who had leadership roles during both the Obama and Biden administrations, and as such he should be made to answer questions.
Of course, Jordan acknowledges that no such questioning is going to happen so long as the Democrats hold the majority in the House.
Varney asked Jordan if there will be hearings in Congress to find out what happened and who is to blame for the Afghanistan disaster. Jordan said that since the majority party makes those decisions, it isn’t likely any hearings will take place so long as the Democrats hold the majority.
If Republicans take the House in 20202, however, that might change.
Jordan told Varney that if Republicans do take the majority and hold hearings into Afghanistan, “it is obvious who should come.” Jordan explained that the same people who made these decisions were also behind the disasters in Libya as well as Benghazi.
Jordan said hearings should include Secretary of State Blinken, CIA Director Burns, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, as well as Susan Rice. All of these people not only serve under Joe Biden; they served under Barack Obama as well.
Adding to his list, Jordan also said that Adam Schiff should be among those called to testify as well because, as chair of the Intel Committee, Schiff would be privy to information not available to other committee members.
Additionally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also hammered Adam Schiff for the Intelligence Committee’s outsized focus on the bogus Russian collusion investigation. McCarthy said the Intel Committee should have conducted hearings on what was going on over in Afghanistan. Perhaps if Schiff had done that, McCarthy explained, the US would not have been so caught off guard when the Taliban took over.
