House Intelligence Cmte. Chairman Schiff tells @AliVelshi  President Trump's firing of the Intelligence Community Inspector General disregards a statue that requires Congress to be given 30 days notice before removing an Inspector General from office.

@RepAdamSchiff  tells @AliVelshi  that Donald Trump’s late-Friday-night firing of the Inspector General who flagged the whistleblower complaint to Congress is the president “retaliating against the people that are on his enemies list.”

Former DNI James Clapper says the firing of the intelligence community watchdog who told Congress about whistleblower complaint that led to President Trump's impeachment, is a "bad message to the intelligence community if you care about its independence and objectivity."

Congress is doing its job by providing emergency funding. But the president must do his. Where are the tests? Where are the field hospitals? Where are the ventilators? Where are the masks? We won’t be distracted by his baseless attacks on the press.

So Crooked Hillary Clinton can delete and acid wash 33,000 emails AFTER getting a Subpoena from the United States Congress, but I can’t make one totally appropriate telephone call to the President of Ukraine? Witch Hunt!

I say this to the President, and his defenders in Congress: You may think it’s okay how Trump and his associates interacted with Russians during the campaign. I don’t. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt.

Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again.

The question is not whether Trump has committed impeachable crimes. He has. The question is whether Republicans in Congress will affirm that an American president is not above the law.

We count on the intelligence community to inform Congress of any threat of foreign interference in our elections. If reports are true and the President is interfering with that, he is again jeopardizing our efforts to stop foreign meddling. Exactly as we warned he would do.

Barr admits he intervened in the sentencing of a man who lied to Congress to cover up for the President. He’s only upset that Trump’s tweets made the political nature of his intervention obvious. Barr fools no one. He’s a witting accomplice to Trump’s attack on the rule of law.

Why isn’t Congressman Adam Schiff being brought up on charges for fraudulently making up a statement and reading it to Congress as if this statement, which was very dishonest and bad for me, was directly made by the President of the United States? This should never be allowed!

I am deeply concerned that the White House has canceled an all-Member classified briefing on the dangerous situation the President has caused in Syria, denying the Congress its right to be informed as it makes decisions about our national security.

Congress voted 517-5 to impose sanctions on Russia. The President decides to ignore that law. Folks that is a constitutional crisis. There should be outrage in every corner of this country.
