Adam Schiff: Congress to launch ANOTHER Russia probe!

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., played a leading role in the impeachment of President Trump based on an anonymous whistleblower complaint.

He already had been known for claiming he had secret evidence of Trump-Russia collusion before special counsel Robert Mueller concluded after nearly two years of investigation he had insufficient evidence.

Now Schiff says he's got another whistleblower complaint, and he's going to investigate.

Fox News reported Schiff alleges officials at the White House and the Department of Homeland Security suppressed intelligence reports of Russian election interference.

He said former Intelligence and Analysis Acting Under Secretary Brian Murphy filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint.

"We've received a whistleblower complaint alleging DHS suppressed intel reports on Russian election interference, altered intel to match false Trump claims and made false statements to Congress," Schiff wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

"We will investigate."

He also alleged "grave" misconduct by the White House and DHS, charging that someone punished him for making protected disclosures.

"The whistleblower retaliation complaint filed by former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically," Schiff said.

A House Republican source told Fox News, "Anyone who takes this at face value is ignoring Schiff’s long record of perpetuating hoaxes that are extremely similar to this."

Schiff's committee claims the complaint "alleges repeated violations of law and regulations, abuses of authority, attempted censorship of intelligence analysis, and improper administration of an intelligence program related to Russian efforts to influence the U.S. elections."

Schiff also slammed the administration for halting verbal briefings to Congress about foreign election interference. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence recently said the briefings now will be in writing, in an effort to reduce leaks to the press.
