Mark Levin: Adam Schiff A Propagandist For Russian Government; Russia Wanted Clinton As President

|

Mark Levin accused ranking member of the House Intel Committee Rep. Adam Schiff (R-CA) of being a "propagandist for the Russian government" for his behavior during the committee's investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion and now his recent media appearances after the Republican-controlled committee concluded this week that there was no collusion. Schiff has said that Democrats will release their own report of leads and witnesses that should be followed up.

Levin said Schiff's post-investigation investigation is a sham and asked why would Russia want Trump as president when they got Crimea, a big chunk of Syria and 20% of America's uranium under Obama's watch while Trump as a candidate promised to beef up the military and do things necessary to secure the nation.

"Mr. Schiff is a shill of the Russian government and I'm going to tell you why it is Schiff who is a propagandist for the Russian government despite his spinning on all these left-wing TV shows," Levin said on Wednesday's broadcast of Hannity on FOX News.





Levin rebuked Schiff for not adding members of the Obama administration, including the former president himself, to the witness list since they were in power when the supposed collusion happened. Levin noted a deal involving the sale of 20% of America's uranium to Russia was brokered under Obama's watch, which would leave him in a much more favorable position with Russian President Vladimir Putin compared to the target of the investigation, Donald Trump.

"Donald Trump is a candidate, Donald Trump is a victim. His family was victimized," Levin said. "Barack Obama was president of the United States when the Russians were interfering with our election. Don't we the American people want to hear from Barack Obama in an open committee hearing? Well, Mr. Shill-for-the-Russians Schiff, he doesn't. What about Loretta Lynch and her role on the FISA warrants as Attorney General? She's not on his list. Neither are other senior Justice Department officials in the Obama administration."

Levin said Schiff is not interested in getting former President Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice to come back to testify after a new book revealed she told cybersecurity personnel to "stand down" when the White House was warned Russians were interfering with the election.

"He doesn't want Susan Rice back. Why doesn't he want Susan Rice back? There's a new book out that says Susan Rice objected to the cybersecurity personnel and the White House who said, 'Hey, Susan, the Russians are interfering with our election.' And you know what she told them? Stand down," Levin revealed.

The radio talk show host and author also criticized the ranking member for not looking into the Clinton campaign and how they "laundered" money through attorneys fees to obtain the infamous Trump dossier put together by the firm Fusion GPS. Levin said Hillary Clinton nor one Clinton campaign official were asked to testify by the Democrats on the Intel Committee. Schiff also did not ask for any leaders of the DNC to testify either, said Levin.

"Let me tell you who this shill for Russia doesn't want," he said of Schiff. "He doesn't want Hillary Clinton. He didn't say we should subpoena Hillary Clinton even though it was the Hillary Clinton campaign that laundered money through a law firm in this Fusion GPS to do what? To corroborate and collude with the Russians with their phony dossier. He didn't ask for a single Hillary Clinton campaign official. Why is that, Mr. Schiff? Since we know they colluded."

"He didn't ask for the former head of the DNC. I don't know if that was Wasserman Schultz or Donna Brazile, he doesn't want to subpoena them and question them. Where did their money come from? That money that they laundered through that law firm to Fusion GPS to the Russians. That's something he doesn't want to talk about," Levin said.

Levin also pointed out that the 'dossier' used by the FBI, under deputy director Andrew McCabe, to obtain FISA warrants yet the judges of the court were not told the means through the document was obtained. He asked why then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other senior DOJ officials haven't been asked to testify before the committee.

Levin said Former President Bill Clinton was not asked to testify, even though he got money from Russians to give speeches around the time the supposed collusion started. Also, no one from the Clinton Foundation was asked to testify even though they made a "fortune off the Russians." Levin also brought up Uranium One, a Russian company that was used to acquire 20% of America's uranium, and a deal that was approved by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among others.

"Now, what else is Mr. Schiff not interested in?" Levin asked. "He's not interested Uranium One, he doesn't make a single request for a witness or a subpoena. 20% of America's uranium is now controlled by Vladimir Putin because Schiff is a shill for Putin in my view. What else doesn't he want? He doesn't want to hear Bill Clinton testify who got money from the Russians to give speeches around the same time. He doesn't want anyone from the Clinton Foundation to testify, any of the senior officials. That foundation made a fortune off the Russians."

Levin concluded that it was Hillary Clinton that Putin and the Russians wanted to win in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, not Donald Trump.

"This has been a sham from day one," Levin said. "Why the hell would the Russians want Donald Trump as president of United States? You think they like him now? When under Hillary Clinton and John Kerry and under Barack Obama, they got Crimea, part of the Ukraine, they've got a big chunk of Syria, they've got 20% of our uranium. Why the hell would Vladimir Putin want Donald Trump as president of the United States when he promised to beef up the United States military and do all the things necessary to secure this nation?"

From Levin's appearance on Wednesday's Hannity:

MARK LEVIN: My thoughts are this. Mr. Schiff is a shill of the Russian government and I'm going to tell you why it is Schiff who is a propagandist for the Russian government despite his spinning on all these left-wing TV shows. He put out a list of 30 more interviews he wants to do even though the Republicans on the committee said there's no collusion. And he mentions a long list --
Reince Priebus, Stephen Miller, K. T. McFarland, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, a bunch of consultants, people with the Trump Organization, some of Trump's lawyers. Somebody that runs a group, Christian right activists. Of course he wants Donald Trump Jr. to kick around. He wants Jared Kushner to kick around. Family members. On and on and on.

Let me tell you who he doesn't want. Let me tell you who this shill for Russia doesn't want. He doesn't want Hillary Clinton. He didn't say we should subpoena Hillary Clinton even though it was the Hillary Clinton campaign that laundered money through a law firm in this Fusion GPS to do what? To corroborate and collude with the Russians with their phony dossier. He didn't ask for a single Hillary Clinton campaign official. Why is that, Mr. Schiff? Since we know they colluded.

He didn't ask for the former head of the DNC. I don't know if that was Wasserman Schultz or Donna Brazile, he doesn't want to subpoena them and question them. Where did their money come from? That money that they laundered through that law firm to Fusion GPS to the Russians. That's something he doesn't want to talk about. I've got more.

Barack Obama. How could it possibly be that the president of the United States under whom all this occurred, Donald Trump is a candidate, Donald Trump is a victim. His family was victimized. Barack Obama was president of the United States when the Russians were interfering with our election. Don't we the American people want to hear from Barack Obama in an open committee hearing? Well, Mr. Shill-for-the-Russians Schiff, he doesn't. What about Loretta Lynch and her role on the FISA warrants as Attorney General? She's not on his list. Neither are other senior Justice Department officials in the Obama administration.

What about these FISA court judges who even now know as a matter of fact that what was presented to them, to issue a warrant against an American citizen was materially false because it omitted everything I just told you about in the dossier?

Now, what else is Mr. Schiff not interested in? He's not interested Uranium One, he doesn't make a single request for a witness or a subpoena. 20% of America's uranium is now controlled by Vladimir Putin because Schiff is a shill for Putin in my view. What else doesn't he want? He doesn't want to hear Bill Clinton testify who got money from the Russians to give speeches around the same time. He doesn't want anyone from the Clinton Foundation to testify, any of the senior officials. That foundation made a fortune off the Russians.

Who else doesn't he want to testify? He doesn't want senior lawyers at this law firm Perkins Coie, that keeps popping up through which money was laundered to Fusion GPS and then to the British ex-spy and then to the Russians to put this dossier together. He doesn't want Susan Rice back. Why doesn't he want Susan Rice back? There's a new book out that says Susan Rice objected to the cybersecurity personnel and the White House who said, 'Hey, Susan, the Russians are interfering with our election.'

And you know what she told them? Stand down.

Shouldn't Susan get another invitation with a subpoena to testify before the committee? Apparently not Because Mr. Schiff is a shill. Who else? What about Ben Rhodes, the deputy director of the National Security Council? Doesn't Mr. Schiff want to know what the Obama National Security Council knew about Russian interference in our government? No. He doesn't mention her at all.

Now, let me tell you something. Mr. Schiff is not interested in the abuses of the FISA application process. He's not interested in what the FISA court did. He's not interested in the fact that American citizens were spied on and their names were unmasked. He doesn't ask for any witnesses related to that. None whatsoever.

I will tell you this, Mr. Schiff, you are a leaker. You sit on the House Intelligence Committee and because you are on the committee it ought to be called the 'House Stupid Committee.' You are the ranking Democrat on the committee. You said you didn't leak. I have a challenge for you, Mr. Schiff, why don't you take a lie detector test so the American people can be sure that you, all over TV, ubiquitous, you might as well be on airport radar and sonograms. You're everywhere, sir. And you tell us you don't leak, okay. Take a lie detector test because I believe you do.

Comey leaked, FBI director. Deputy FBI director McCabe, leaker. James Clapper, according to a new book, National Intelligence Director, leaker. According to their own texts, Mr. [Peter] Strzok, head of counterintelligence, leaker. His girlfriend, [Lisa] Page, leaker.

This has been a sham from day one. Why the hell would the Russians want Donald Trump as president of United States? You think they like him now? When under Hillary Clinton and John Kerry and under Barack Obama, they got Crimea, part of the Ukraine, they've got a big chunk of Syria, they've got 20% of our uranium. Why the hell would Vladimir Putin want Donald Trump as president of the United States when he promised to beef up the United States military and do all the things necessary to secure this nation?
