During an interview on “Hannity” on Monday, Feb. 24, former Republican congressman Trey Gowdy suggested that intelligence officials should stop delivering high-level briefings to chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) because he is a “epidemic leaker.”

Gowdy discussed the recent reports on Russian interference efforts to help President Donald Trump win the 2020 election, in which official appeared to have overstated intelligence when speaking to the House Intelligence Committee earlier this month.

Gowdy noted that it took more than two years for special counsel Robert Mueller to conclude there wasn’t enough evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but it took just two minutes this time.

“It took two minutes this time for us to find out there was no evidence,” he said. “As soon as a Republican asked the briefer in a classified intel briefing, ‘What evidence do you have to support that assessment?’ The answer was none.”

The New York Times and CNN were the first news outlets that reported on the issue last week and CNN has since walked back on its claim.

“For over a year, we were lectured by the D.C. media and the Democrats that no one is above the law,” Gowdy told Sean Hannity. “No one is above the law, apparently except whoever leaks classified information out of Adam Schiff’s committee.”

“What the Intelligence Committee needs to give some thought to is stop briefing someone who has a history and is an epidemic leaker.” he added. “Quit briefing him.”

President Trump on Sunday also weighed in, calling for an investigation into Adam Schiff and his committee.

“Somebody please tell incompetent (thanks for my high poll numbers) & corrupt politician Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff to stop leaking Classified information or, even worse, made up information, to the Fake News Media. Someday he will be caught, & that will be a very unpleasant experience!” President Trump wrote in a tweet.

Hannity asked when Schiff will be held accountable for lying to the American people about the Trump-Russia allegations.

“Unfortunately, Sean, it is not against the law to lie to the American people,” Gowdy replied.

“There should be a consequence. And I hope people in the People’s Republic of California will remember it come November,” he added, pointing out the “dirty little secret” that politicians can lie to Americans but “it is a crime for you to lie to Congress.”

A controversial Iranian general would still be alive today if a Democrat was in the Oval Office.

Three Democratic candidates for president confirmed they would not order a deadly military strike on Gen. Qassem Soleimani if they could decide whether to save lives by killing the top terrorist leader on Jan. 3.

Pete Buttigieg admitted he knew Soleimani had a history of “murder and mayhem” but still would not have ordered the strike if he was president.

“Look, I feel very strongly about the campaign of murder and mayhem that Gen. Soleimani and his units have perpetrated,” the former South Bend mayor said on a video of the ABC News Democratic debate uploaded to Twitter. “It is also the case that if we have learned nothing else from the war in Iraq, it is that taking out a bad guy is not a good idea if you do not know what you are doing.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) suggested he knew the general had committed acts of terrorism but feared a military strike would bring retaliation from Iran.

“You cannot go around saying, ‘You are a bad guy, we are going to assassinate you,’” he said on a video of the debate posted to Twitter. “If that happens, you are opening the door to international anarchy that every government in the world will then be subjected to attacks and assassination.”

Joe Biden dismissed previous reports about Soleimani’s involvement in terrorist attacks for not having enough evidence.

“The reason I would not have ordered the strike is there is no evidence yet of imminent threat that was going to come from him,” the former vice president said on another video of the debate posted to Twitter.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) recently accused the Democratic Party of trying to stop President Donald Trump from ordering military strikes because his leadership is “too damn strong.”

“Please do not tell me this is about taking away the authorization for military force, this is about taking away the strongest president we ever had,” he said on a video uploaded by Fox News. “We stand in the people’s House and we are worried more about the laws of election of 2020 than the laws of American lives and the continued loss of lives around the world by one of the worst terrorists of all time.”

Kelly recalled many years ago when Congress lamented not taking action sooner against al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden who took responsibility for terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York, on Sept. 11, 2001.

“We stood together as the United States and said this was the right thing to do, at the right time because it would save lives,” he said. “We delayed because we were not sure. I thought back at what President Obama would say and he said, ‘I made this decision on my own.’”

A successful businessman recently suggested that former President Barack Obama should not take credit for the economic boom that President Donald Trump has brought to the country.

Ken Langone, co-founder of The Home Depot, explained that, for decades, the Democrats not only have not worked for the prosperity of the American people, but have instead played at dividing the population while family incomes have been declining.

On his nightly Fox News show, host Neil Cavuto asked Langone: “Why don’t you think the president is getting more of the goodwill from this good economy—the good economy? Now there’s been a battle between [President Trump] and President Obama; who takes the credit for this bull market—the longest in history? Who does?”

Langone responded: “Forget about that. Obama ought to do what every great president did. Go off in the sunset. Be the mother of the groom. Wear beige and keep your mouth shut. Okay?”

The businessman said earlier that instead of seeking to bring peace through prosperity, Democrats fomented division by pushing different social and ethnic groups to fight each other in the face of a growing scarcity of resources.

Now things have changed, he said, and the prosperity brought by the Trump administration is tearing down those walls and those politicians.

Langone spoke about the prospects of the president being re-elected in 2020.

“What I’m saying is, whether we like it or not, Trump’s base is rock solid,” he said. “Donald Trump needs 15 percent of the voters to be re-elected in 2020. That 35 percent is rock solid.”

“I would hope he would do things different than he does, but damn it, give the guy credit,” he said.
