The U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff (Democrat member of the House Intelligence Committee) along with Committee member Democrat Congresswoman Jackie Speier got an ethics violation complaint from Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch is single-handedly responsible for dozens of political exposures over the years.

Big nightmares for anybody who gets discovered by JW.

These two Representatives apparently released some classified info to the public.

Republican House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has a complaint also, and he has recused himself from the current investigations.

Jud icial Watch Files Ethics Complaint Against Adam Schiff: ‘We Have Info Schiff Disclosed Classified Information’

Today, Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jackie Speier for violating House ethics rules.

Via Judicial Watch:

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today sent a hand-delivered letter to the chairman and co-chairman of the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Jackie Speier (D-CA) “disclosed classified information to the public in violation of House ethics rules.”

Citing the ethics complaints filed against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) charging that he “may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, regulations, or other standards of conduct,” Judicial Watch wrote:

If the standard for filing a complaint or opening an ethics investigation is that a member has commented publicly on matters that touch on classified information, but the member does not reveal the source of his or her information, then the complaints against Chairman Nunes are incomplete insofar as they target only Nunes. At least two other members of the House Intelligence Committee have made comments about classified material that raise more directly the very same concerns raised against Chairman Nunes because they appear to confirm classified information contained in leaked intelligence community intercepts.

On March 21, 2017, the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff spoke to an audience at the Brookings Institute in which he commented on an intelligence community intercept of a December 29, 2016 conversation between Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislayak and retired U.S. Army General Michael Flynn, who had been selected by then-President Elect Donald Trump to serve as National Security Advisor. Both the fact of the conversation and the conversation’s contents were leaked to the news media and reported widely. In his Brookings Institute speech, Rep. Schiff stated:

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. And what was most disturbing to me, frankly, about that was: here you had a situation where the president is informed that his national security advisor . . . has lied to the vice president, and probably others . . . about a conversation with the Russians over sanctions imposed over hacking in the election to help the president.

Judicial Watch is also going after Rep. Jackie Speier for the same ethics violations:

I thought his recent enthusiastic defense of Susan Rice should be enough to make him recuse himself.

Kind of funny as mostly the D's have used the congressional ethics office to beat up and harass the R's. Guess the shoes on the other foot.

I actually like the Judicial watch organization. They seem to be trying to keep an eye on things. They do not do a whole lot but they do try to get the truth out about a few things.

Great. It has been obvious this guy was hiding something,
and the looks on his face lately, just creepy.

Hope he has to recuse himself, or step down!

I remember a judge ordering Candidate Hillary to answer 17 questions that Judicial Watch posed to her in 2016, regarding her crooked life as Secretary of State and later. She answered 1. The other 16 she blew off.
