Hey, Adam Schiff, Why The Sudden Silence?

"Well, I, Uh ..."

From the Washington Examiner:
Adam Schiff, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has been sharply critical of the panel's Republican chairman, Devin Nunes, for visiting the White House to view classified documents that Nunes says show the Obama administration intercepted the communications of Donald Trump associates before the president took office in January. Among other things, Schiff slammed Nunes for viewing the documents by himself and not sharing them with Democrats on the committee. 
So last week, White House counsel Don McGahn invited Schiff to come see the documents for himself. Schiff did so on Friday. Now, both the Republican chairman and the Democratic ranking member on the Intel Committee have seen the documents. And now, the public has a chance to hear another assessment to balance Nunes' claim that he saw "dozens" of intelligence reports involving the incidental collection of Trumpworld figures in Obama administration intercepts, with the names of some of them "unmasked," and that none of it had to do with Russia. 
In other words, Nunes suggested the Obama administration misused its wiretapping powers to gather information on the Trump team. 
So with Schiff's visit to the White House, a chance for balance. 
But after viewing the documents, Schiff has gone nearly completely silent about what he saw.

It's a scandal of biblical proportion and the Dems really don't want to own it because it was of "their" Party's making. When the dust settles we will find that the law was quietly changed allowing much of it to happen. The leaking is still a felony -- but can the FBI be trusted to do an honest and competent job?

I have my doubts where the FBI is concerned.

Exactly! I have serious doubts as to the FBI's ability to be impartial.
The swamp and common sense seems to be in very short measure now days
