Democrat House Intelligence Committee member Adam Schiff (CA) suggested twice over the course of the last 24 hours that an Oklahoma City-style bombing could happen because of President Donald Trump’s decision to release the FISA memo on Friday.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Schiff said that people will not trust the intelligence community because of the FISA memo and may not come forward with information about suspicious information.
Answering a question from Stephanopoulos about whether the GOP is trying to discredit Mueller, Schiff replied, “Well, I don’t think it’s working in the sense that people have a lot of confidence in Bob Mueller.”
“But it is impeaching the FBI, and the problem with this, and this is I think at the heart of the department’s concern – is if you have a neighbor who’s buying fertilizer, lots of fertilizer, but has no yard and you have concerns about it and you want to call the FBI, you’re now going to wonder ‘Is that FBI going to hold my name in confidence or this information in confidence, what if this becomes politicized?'” Schiff said.
“Sources are going to dry up because of what the Republicans on this committee are doing now,” he added.
Schiff made similar remarks while also appearing on MSNBC.
