GOP Rep. Andy Biggs Rips Dem Adam Schiff's Trump-Ukraine Threat

By    |   Monday, 23 September 2019 11:22 AM

Rep. Andy Biggs Monday said a threat made by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to defund some parts of the intelligence community unless details of a call between President Donald Trump and his counterpart in Ukraine are made public "doesn't even make sense."

"We have so many things going on right now in the country, whether it's North Korea, Iran, China, even Russia," the Arizona Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

"The very notion that you are going to defund our intelligence apparatus, that doesn't even make sense. If he wants to find it he needs to go somewhere else. He won't get support. I can't imagine him getting support to do that."

Instead, Schiff's "credibility and veracity should be challenged," said Biggs, because "he leaks stuff as the chairman of the Intelligence Committee."

Schiff on Sunday told CNN that he may push to withhold some funding from the intelligence community if the full details of a conversation between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky are not released. Biggs said Democrats are pushing on the story because they are desperate to find something to use for grounds for impeachment against Trump.

"There is not one of them talking about the reality that we've actually known about for a long time of Joe Biden actually putting pressure and the Obama administration putting pressure on Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating Joe Biden's son," said Biggs.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hinted in a weekend memo that she may be leaning toward impeachment, and Biggs said that is because she is getting pressure from the left wing of the party.
