Jason Chaffetz: Adam Schiff Should Have His Security Clearance Taken Away Because ‘He Continues to Lie’

Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz told Fox & Friends on Tuesday that House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff should have his security clearance taken away because, Chaffetz claimed, Schiff had lied over the course of the impeachment proceedings.

“And I still, to this day, do not understand why Adam Schiff has a security clearance,” Chaffetz said. “He continues to lie. He continues to put out information that he knows is not true.”

“He has stood in front of the United States Senate and talked about things that are not in the impeachment. I think he’s a terrible embarrassment and somebody has got, to I hope, answer the question why do you have a security clearance?”

“He says that this president will do this again,” Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade said. “And next thing you know he will give Alaska to Russia because it’s gonna help his re-election. What’s he even talking about?”

“Give away Alaska!” Chaffetz laughed. “How do Democrats with a straight face say we can’t have Donald Trump in the presidency because, well, we’re worried about the integrity of the election. It’s time to maybe go look in the mirror here a little bit, folks.”
