No Director of National Intelligence has ever refused to turn over a whistleblower complaint the IG determined to be urgent and credible.

There is no privilege to engage in misconduct; not under this president, or any other.

That’s why I issued a subpoena and will enforce it.

Again, @RepAdamSchiff’s position is logically unassailable, legally irrefutable, and totally badass.
 
This will be one of those weeks where we have to be able to focus on more than one major issue at a time & somehow keep them all at the top of the priority list. Don't forget despite this, impeachment & Kavanaugh that migrant children are still separated from their families.
 
Know there is a lot going on today but the story of the White House/DOJ/DNI illegally suppressing the account of an intel whistleblower is the most significant story in Washington politics right now. Watch this video, and pay attention to this emerging issue this week.

When this guy ignores the subpoena, or refuses to cooperate in any way, I don't want him threatened with contempt, I want him put in jail for obstructing justice. Democrats needs to start playing hardball. #SundayMorning pic.twitter.com/Fs5SfNMTLz
 
Nixon's downfall also involved abusing power within the intelligence agencies under his purview in the executive branch. House Intel didn't exist back then.

It could be a far worse breach of the public trust if they're this afraid of turning it over to Congress.

So, by “enforce it” do you mean PEOPLE WILL GO TO JAIL if they don’t comply? Because I’m beyond sick of these assholes being allowed to defy subpoenas with impunity and suffering no consequence other than being on the receiving end of mealy-mouthed tweets from leadership.

A little #MondayMotivation for our House Intel Comm chair @RepAdamSchiff. Tee up an impeachment vote for acting DNI. Make his trial about @Whitehouse treason. Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - I Won't Back Down (Official Music Video) youtu.be/nvlTJrNJ5lA
 
🔎 WHAT was the misconduct the intelligence personnel reported to the DNI? #FollowTheFacts #MondayMotivation
 
Schiff, you're a lying scumbag. We believe nothing you say

#TeamKJ
 
just be honest with everyone so they know what this means. to date, you (et al) have no means by which to enforce lawful actions against the corrupt administration nor any credible protections for the citizenry in the future ...
 
Adam... please... for once.... GO FOR THE JUGULAR!! Get what you need. And if you don’t, GO PUBLUC and make it known what is being hidden!!
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
At the end Schiff said what I was thinking. Yes, if they block up the whistleblowing mechanism, people will go to the press. Sometimes this administration forgets that it's still America. Either way, this whistleblower is most likely in grave danger.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Use #InherentContempt - it's there for precisely this reason. The American people would like to see some guts from Congress.
 
Q told us Schiff spent 2 years [knowingly] & unlawfully lying, leaking, should be FORCED to RESIGN
He’s apart of GANG OF 8(INTEL)
#DECLASS material is proof
[Knowingly] disseminating FALSE information is ILLEGAL!

Wooozzzaaahhh...maybe I’m alone but I truly enjoy listening to Chairman Schiff. There’s a sense of calm but strict adherence to his oath of office & defending our Constitution and our laws. Helluva interview twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff/…
 
How can this blatent #CoverUp stand?? I understand that the GOP is the #PartyofCorruption, but honestly, how do their constituents not care??

Glad to see the angry tweet. Wake all dems. Time to return nation to sanity.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Corrupt Trump and the complicit GOP must not be allowed to obstruct justice.

Thank you, Chairman @RepAdamSchiff The American people would like our country back, please. #ImpeachTrumpNow
 
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Start putting these monsters behind bars if necessary! The GOP will absolutely commit election fraud and they may not recognize a tRUmp loss. This is not a drill!

How? They ignore them and nothing happens. Serious question.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
I haven’t seen you this fired up in a while. We need you to fight this battle. It renews my strength.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Well Adam if you can’t go around Barr & you can’t go under Barr, then you go through him and speak directly with the whistleblower. Invite him to the party ! 🎉 🎈 🎊
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Time to get tough on the FBI.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
The sooner the showdown the better. Don’t wait any longer on anything. Their toe hold has turned into a foot hold and now they’re setting up a block & tackle. If Dems wait any longer to play hardball? My guess is they will overtly oppose you with physical force.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Let’s throw them in jail already. Any other citizen who refused a federal subpoena would be in jail already, Enough playing nice guys cmon
 
Watch and share, widely.
 
 
Schiff is an intelligent, effective lawyer. A good lawyer never asks questions he does not already know the answer to. Schiff already knows. Unlike Trump, he acknowledges he is bound to confidentiality rules. So, he's going to force DOJ to tell the American people.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Once again, the stench of obstruction, abuse of power and conspiracy is oozing from the Oval Office. @RepAdamSchiff says he will "enforce" this subpoena. Watch this story people, this is important. pic.twitter.com/YgUNZa3HmP
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Be ready to dispatch marshalls; DNI isn't about to comply.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Please, Americans emplore you! If they refuse to comply, jail them! We’re sick of this obstruction. No more playing nice.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
And these Trump guys consider themselves strict constitutionalists? There is no ‘higher power’. We have 3 Co-equal branches of government. Or, at least we used to.
 
 
Adzy “can’t go into the contents of the whistleblower allegations” because he doesn’t know what they entail. He’s guessing.
It would be both hilarious and ironic if the allegations made concern Shifty’s leaking of classified information.
Good times, good times.
😂🤣😂
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Who instructed the Acting DNI to disobey the law? Probably the same dirtball who instructed the SecTreasury to disobey the law requiring IRS to turn over ANY tax returns requested by Congress.
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Thank you, Congressman Schiff! Don't let this go. Keep fighting, we are all counting on you! 💙
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
THERE IS NO PRIVILEGE TO ENGAGE IN MISCONDUCT. Damn straight.
 
Cannot wait to see Adam @RepAdamSchiff “enforce it”! Because he’ll have to.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Really hoping that "enforce" part is for real.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
This time, throw him in jail. You know he's going to ignore it, so get prepared for the next step NOW. It has to be jail, not a court case. Urgent means urgent. Not 4 mo from now when it's settled in court! #impeachtrump #corruptGOP #coverup #obstruction
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Why is the DNI intimidated by Trump what does he think would happen to him if he turns in the information? He would have the majority of the worlds population on his side and fighting for him.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Arrest him if he refuses. Immediately.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Please link to the two or more letters you've received from ODNI so that we can see and assess the responses. Thank you very much. @just_security @qjurecic
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Just go to Mr. DNI's office and get the complaint. I'll go with you if need be.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
THANK YOU ADAM SCHIFF
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
U are playing catch-up Mr Schiff. The Trump Admin is probably most corrupt in history & yet Democrats tread water. Appreciate what you do...but it’s not near enough! Investigating each new corrupt act is not stopping it. There must be accountability. There must be justice!
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Please make this happen. I’m so tired of the lawlessness of this admin
 
This is scary. Willfully ignoring the law to protect Trump admin from whistleblower in what is being described as a national security threat.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Time for protesters to blow whistles at Trump rallies.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Use Congress's Inherent Contempt powers if necessary Congressman. Also, please subpoena Dan Coats.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
I hope you enforce it with inherent contempt if necessary.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
DOJ will protect this President at all costs. They will tie this up in the courts and eventually rule against Congress. This is a dictatorship masquerading as a democracy. The courts will protect the Admins illegal activity. Ask Kavanaugh.
 
Just like obstruction in Mueller report obstruction here is also a crime. How many felonies are we up to with trump?We need a high crimes and misdemeanor counts clock like they have for national debt.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
So we've narrowed the "higher authority" suspects down to 2: Donald Trump or God
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Start locking the traitors up. They wouldn’t be trying to hide their activities if they weren’t guilty.
 
Enjoy the shitshow while I enjoy sol'ace
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
1) It’s a coup. They ignore your subpoenas. They don’t care if you vote to find them in contempt of Congress. trump has successfully placed himself above the law. Barr will cover up his crimes, and prosecute his enemies. This isn’t politics anymore, this is organized crime.
 
It would be great if someone would actually enforce a subpoena. Thanks Rep Schiff. We need more like you.
 
Ont let this slip under the radar, ppl. This is, as Biden wld say, a big f’ing deal.
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
You need to go to court and enforce your subpoanas, not. Do not wait. Get rulings to get the documents.
 
Refresher. The Lloyd-La Follette Act of 1912 is an early #Whistleblower law stating, "the right of employees ... to furnish information to either House of Congress, or to a committee or Member thereof, may not be interfered with or denied." 5 U.S.C. § 7211.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
How are you going to enforce it? Our Democratic leadership has been completely on their knees before this lawless administration. We demand that you use every power in the constitution and the law to hold these people accountable. We demand impeachment!
 
You're dealing with a crime syndicate that has infiltrated every branch of our government.
 
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Until you start enforcing subpoenas, what incentive do they have to comply? So far the committee has let people ignore subpoenas with no consequence. Put some bite behind it.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Start arresting people. Start leaking. Start #Impeachment
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Respectfully, Mr. Chairman, subpoenas have not been effective against this administration. Even if the courts rule that the subpoenas must be honored, what's to stop Trump from pardoning those who continue to defy them? We need stronger measures.
 
In reply to @ARetVet
At he end of this clip Schiff points out that the DNI blocking whistleblowers encourages them to go to the press which endangers national security. He fails to mention that it also puts them at risk of prosecution under the Espionage Act. twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff/…
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
This admin is going down a very dark road.
 
In reply to @NYinLA2121
It’s awful, he’s awful and not a damn thing will be done about it right now. Trump must go! So, shine the light on this please. twitter.com/repadamschiff/…
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
They're blatantly ignoring thumbing their noses at the Rule of Law has a Militia Coup taking over the US Government? Have they sold their souls to #45 disavowing their sworn oaths to serve the Constitution? Have Nazis infiltrated every level of the Government from top down? HMM!! pic.twitter.com/8OCKjEOTuI
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
They have defied Congressional subpoenas before, have ignored court orders too & yet the Sargent at Arms has been instructed to arrest no one. I would love to see enforcement. So far it's all talk. Prove that no one is above the law.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
"I'll enforce it this time, I really will." Isn't convincing after so many have cheerfully given you the finger up to now without repercussions. Sorry, but I'll believe it when I see it.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
I know we are all overdosing on continuous scandals. But this is different. Please get to the bottom of it. Use every avenue you can. Fight for us Adam. Fight for all the law abiding citizens sick of this shit Thank you 🙏
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Rep Schiff, keep fighting! Don't let this one fall by the wayside of the many offenses against our Constitution. Latch on, and don't let go!
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
In a case like this the Whistle blower has no recourse but to go directly to @maddow and @RepAdamSchiff
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
We've never had a House so anti-American and willing to break the law. We are in a time of 1sts.
 
Please remind the Acting DNI, Joseph Mcguire that he too can end up in jail just like Michael Cohen
 
Those that ignore subpeonas need to be arrested.
That is the only way the Republican stonewalling will end.
@RepAdamSchiff @Logic_Triumphs
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Time to open up that prison in the basement of Congress.
 
Good.

I don’t care your political party preference, laws regarding our government must be followed and enforced.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Thank you @RepAdamSchiff for enforcing it. Send them to jail if they ignore subpoenas. Apparently, Trump and his circle of crooks think they’re above the law.
 
I've long argued that it's a fantasy to call for Congress to exercise inherent contempt (ordering the Sergeant at Arms to take a witness into custody until they comply with a subpoena) re: Barr or Mnuchin. This situation might be different, though. Here's why:

In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Donny still thinks he is above the law. He believes he can give people permission to break the law & ignore lawful subpoenas.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
I don't understand why someone isn't being held in criminal contempt for violating a federal statute. And why that whistleblower isn't heading directly into Rep. Schiff's office.
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Why isn’t this story leading the national news on every major network? Because a urgent national security issue possibly involving the @POTUS isn’t important? @cnn @abcnews @CBSNews @NBCNews @MSNBC @foxnewsdesk
 
 
In reply to @RepAdamSchiff
Enforce it tomorrow please? I am so tired of Dem good manners and high standards while repub’s r in the gutter. Tomorrow - high noon, this Acting DNI gets escorted to jail. Dear Whistle Blower/Hero: if Dems continue to be wimps pls just walk out to the press microphones.
