Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, dropped a bombshell upon returning to DC on Monday.
According to Schiff, a Russian invasion of Ukraine seems imminent.
Schiff will either look like a genius or a complete moron depending upon how this plays out.
One thing is for sure, however, his comments related to this possible invasion prove he has no right being the chair of the “intelligence” committee.
Panic, Prophecy, or Idiocy?
Before we get into all of this, you have to hear how Schiff framed this.
He stated, “I fear that Putin is very likely to invade.
“I still, frankly, don’t understand the full motivation for why, why now he’s doing this.
“But he certainly appears intent on it unless we can persuade him otherwise.
“And I think nothing other than a level of sanctions that Russia has never seen will deter him, and that’s exactly what we need to do with our allies.”
So, let me say this…
If Schiff does not understand the motivation behind the possible invasion of Ukraine by Russia, why is he the head of the Intelligence Committee?
The motivation is clear… he does not want Ukraine entering into any agreements with NATO that would bring allied forces closer to Russia.
Putin is using the threat of this invasion as leverage to persuade Ukraine not to make such an alliance.
I am just curious how just about everyone on the planet sees this except for Schiff.
Secondly, Putin has laughed off sanctions in the past, and considering that some of our allies are energy reliant on Russia, it will be difficult to put sanctions in place that will be blanket sanctions that will have a tangible impact on Russia’s economy.
This sounds like a news shift to me, a purposeful one on the part of Schiff.
I am not saying that we should not be talking about Russia and Ukraine, quite the opposite, but Schiff just rang a bell that cannot be unrung.
And when you consider his position as the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, meaning he has access to intelligence that would tell him one way or the other, that is a pretty loud bell that he is ringing.
If this turns out to be nothing but a news deflection, Schiff must be held accountable.
As we all know, if this turns out to be a lie, it would not be the first time that he has blatantly lied to the American people.
This is simply unacceptable by someone in his position and with his influence.
