The number of criminal and ethical investigations surrounding Democrats seems to be growing.
The Democratic Party is already in trouble following the revelations uncovered after 2016’s leaked emails which highlighted many of the Party’s divisive and unethical practices.
Breitbart reported that “conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Friday called for a preliminary investigation into two top Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee for potentially disclosing classified information to the public in violation of House ethics rules.”
The request was made to the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Judicial Watch alleges that Vice Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Ca.) and Rep. Jackie Speaker (D-Ca.) “broke House ethics rules for disclosing classified information to the public, with which left-wing groups have tagged its Republican chairman.”
Devin Nunes (R-Ca.) is the chair of the House Intelligence Committee.
This is the same Nunes who reportedly saw evidence that members of the intelligence community were in possession of surveillance materials on President Trump’s campaign staff.
Nunes was criticized by Democrats for not sharing his information with them before sharing it with the president and the public.
He has since recused himself from the investigation into Russian involvement in the presidential election.
Although Schiff has been among the most vocal critics of Nunes, he himself has publicly spoken in manners that have confirmed the validity of leaked intelligence and unmasked US citizens.
He publicly confirmed that a recording existed of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the Russian Ambassador.
These comments came in December, more than one month before they became a national story.
“And then you have leaks that expose malfeasance or illegality. Now, I put that kind of leak, I put the Flynn leak in that category,” Schiff said.
Speier also confirmed the existence of that tape before it became public knowledge.
He told the Daily Caller that “Ambassador Kislyak and General Flynn were freelancing sanctions relief at the end of December, when he had no portfolio in which to make any kind of negotiations with Ambassador Kislyak.”
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said that “at least two leading Democrats, Reps. Schiff and Speier, on the House Intelligence Committee, seem to have improperly disclosed classified information.”
“While the Ethics Committee examines Rep. Nunes’s innocuous statements on Obama surveillance on the Trump team, it ought to expand its investigation to include the other members of the Intelligence Committee who seem to have flagrantly violated the rules.”
