Adam Schiff: 'I Don't Know' Why DOJ Waited 18 Months Before Raid

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Question that shifty Schiff got asked on the Sunday shows. So if there were truly materials of this classification level and it's been publicly reported elsewhere that there were materials related to nuclear programs for example. If there was that sensitive level of information being held, why did Justice Department officials wait 18 months after the end of the Trump presidency? What change that made this immediate? I don't know. But if the Trump people represented that they provided all the classified or national security information and didn't, that's a serious problem, and I could tell you anyone in the intelligence community that had documents like that marked top secret SCI in their residence after authorities went to them, they would be under serious investigation. He doesn't know. Why doesn't he do? And I'll tell you the reason why, because this is all about politics. The Democrats know that Donald Trump is gaining ground. The Democrats know that the Republicans are in are in the works of having a tsunami in the midterm elections. The Democrats know all of this, so they've got to try something. Something to stop the big mo. Momentum. That's what this was all about.
