Adam Schiff cannot stay out of controversy.
Now Schiff crossed a major line that is unforgivable.
And this damning video landed Adam Schiff in deep trouble.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy wasn’t joking around when he said he would be booting Adam Schiff off the House Intelligence Committee.
McCarthy ejected Schiff from the committee pointing to Schiff lying about having evidence of Donald Trump colluding with Russia and lying about his office’s role in working with the CIA so-called “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella in staging the Ukraine impeachment sham.
Schiff responded to losing his spot on the House Intelligence Committee by posting a video to TikTok asking supporters to donate money to what would become his campaign for U.S. Senate.
“Hello, I’m Congressman Adam Schiff with some troubling news,” Schiff ranted. “Today, Kevin McCarthy removed me from the House Intelligence Committee, all for doing my job holding Trump accountable and standing up to the extreme MAGA Republicans.”
Schiff falsely claimed being kicked off the Intelligence Committee for abusing his power and lying was somehow attacking democracy.
“We knew it would be bad when the Republicans took over, but it’s far worse than we expected,” Schiff continued. “But I can promise you this, this is not the end of my fight for our democracy, this is just the beginning. Please join us and contribute today.”
But the story ended up being the fact that Schiff used TikTok — an app the Chinese Communist Party uses to spy on users — to film this video.
Back in 2019 Missouri Senator Josh Hawley heard testimony about Communist China using TikTok to collect personal data from users for mass oppression.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio then introduced legislation to ban TikTok in the United States saying the ability of Communist China to harvest private information off devices that used the app represented a national security threat.
“The federal government has yet to take a single meaningful action to protect American users from the threat of TikTok. This isn’t about creative videos — this is about an app that is collecting data on tens of millions of American children and adults every day. We know it’s used to manipulate feeds and influence elections. We know it answers to the People’s Republic of China. There is no more time to waste on meaningless negotiations with a CCP-puppet company. It is time to ban Beijing-controlled TikTok for good.”
Joe Biden also signed into law a spending bill including an amendment by Senator Hawley banning TikTok on U.S. government phones.
If Schiff used an official phone to film this video he did so in violation of federal law.
Adam Schiff spent years lying about the Russians having “kompromat” — compromising information — on Donald Trump.
But the sad irony of this situation is that by installing TikTok on his phone Adam Schiff may have allowed Communist China access to his private emails and text messages, handing America’s number one enemy “kompromat” on himself.
