Adam Schiff hired Soros-backed investigator to probe Trump

Rep. Adam Schiff has just hired a Soros-funded investigator to probe alleged Trump-Russia collusion as the Mueller probe looks set to vindicate President Trump. 

Schiff, who became chairman of the committee after Democrats took back the House, tapped Daniel Noble, co-chief of the complex frauds and cybercrime unit at the Manhattan office, sources told Bloomberg News.

Breitbart.com reports: “They declined to be named because the move hasn’t been made public yet,” Bloomberg reported.

Noble, who has deep experience in cybercrime, worked with Goldman to convict Mikhail Zemlyansky in 2015 of racketeering, insurance fraud and securities fraud. Zemlyansky ran a Russian-American criminal ring that perpetrated a $100 million no-fault auto scheme, according to prosecutors.

“Known as ‘Russian Mike,’ Zemlyansky is a Ukrainian native. His 36-person ring mainly comprised of people of Russian-American descent. They included ten doctors and three lawyers who sold out their professions for lucrative bribes to rubber-stamp bogus crash treatments and claims,” insurancefraud.org reported.

The hire comes just days after Breitbart News reported Schiff hired Daniel Goldman, who worked with Noble on the Zemlyansky case. He left the U.S. Attorney’s office in 2017 to become a legal analyst on NBC and MSNBC, where he regularly  accused President Donald Trump of committing crimes to win the presidential election.

Goldman is also a fellow at the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice, with offices in New York City and Washington, DC.

Schiff’s investigations of Trump are not limited to his committee chairmanship. On Thursday he reintroduced legislation that would alert Congress if the president pardons any individuals tied to investigations into himself or family members, according to the Hill.

“While Schiff introduced the legislation last year, his new push comes amid reports that representatives for Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, may have spoken about a  pardon with attorneys for the president,” the Hill reported.

“The President has a broad power to confer pardons, but not when they are designed to insulate himself, his family and his associates from criminal investigation,” Schiff said in a statement about the Abuse of the Pardon Prevention Act. ”Such an abuse of the pardon power would amount to obstruction of justice and is not countenanced by the constitution.”
