Adam Schiff’s January didn’t go well.
The corporate-controlled media is jumping all over Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for kicking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) off the House Intelligence Committee.
Schiff’s latest descent into the gutter is a disaster he brought on himself by posting it to his own social media.
Rep. Schiff soaked up all the attention, griping about how “unfair” it was that Speaker McCarthy forced him to give up his access to power through the Intelligence Committee.
But McCarthy has good reasons for cutting the politician off from access to America’s most sensitive secrets considering that Schiff not only lied about the debunked “Russian collusion,” but also spun tall talks involving the Ukraine impeachment hoaxes.
And Schiff just proved the wisdom of that move with a series of ill-advised social media posts.
He pulled it off by posting a video to Communist China’s favorite spy app, TikTok.
To most Americans it seemed like the biggest danger of the social media platform was being exposed to a bottomless supply of painfully awful videos.
But it turns out that In reality, ByteDance—the company that owns TikTok—hands over access to the private data collected on users directly to the Chinese Communist Party.
Considering that McCarthy also booted his fellow Rep. Eric Swalwell of the intelligence committee for his relationship with Fang Fang, a spy for China, you’d think Schiff would have the good sense to stay far away from TikTok at all costs.
Instead, Rep. Schiff used the app to make his case for why he should still be on the Intelligence Committee.

Transmitting that argument via an app that tracks Schiff’s location and sends his data to America’s number one enemy only served to back up McCarthy’s decision like nothing else could.
As a former member of the Intelligence committee Schiff is certainly aware of the risks.
Officials at both the state and federal level are seeking to ban TikTok.
His use of the app flies in the face of what anyone in his position should be doing.
In fact, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is going after the app by introducing legislation banning TikTok across the country.
“What my bill does is it specifically goes after TikTok—it bans it,” Hawley said. “It doesn’t ban any other app, but it also requires a comprehensive report to Congress on the national security threat [the app presents]. But listen, I welcome all efforts to ban TikTok, of whatever form it takes.”
Democrat-controlled states, like New Jersey, are among nearly half of all states in the union banning TikTok on government-owned phones.
“At least 22 other states, including Ohio, New Jersey, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Dakota, have instituted bans on the use of TikTok on government devices,” according to The Associated Press. “Congress last month banned TikTok from most U.S. government-issued devices over bipartisan concerns about security.”
Rep. Schiff’s incredible lack of judgment is proving exactly why shouldn’t be trusted with America’s secrets.
