He has no values, and in my view, cares about little except for hoping to be speaker one day, god forbid.”...

    Congressman Adam Schiff believes that the Republican Party has "become essentially a cult" in recent years, evident from its embrace of President Trump and controversial figures such as Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has espoused QAnon conspiracy theories.

    A Republican congressman is questioning whether his party is “broken” after a Wednesday night meeting in which QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) received a great show of support from her colleagues. Appearing on CNN’s New Day Thursday, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) tore into his party for supporting Taylor Greene, and bashed the vote to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her leadership role in the caucus. “Liz committed no sin except to vote her conscience,” Kinzinger said. “Who’s the one that put everybody in our party in an awkward position on impeachment? It wasn’t Liz Cheney. It wasn’t me. It was Donald Trump.” Ultimately, the caucus voted to keep Cheney in her top role — despite predictions from far-right members like Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who claimed that the votes were there to oust Cheney. Kinzinger mocked the Florida congressman for his errant forecast. “Boy, last night, I’ll tell...

'The Republican Party has lost its way. If we are to lead again, we need to muster the courage to remember who we are,'  Kinzinger, 42, said in a video launching his Country 1st PAC.

    In an interview with CNN on Thursday, Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger discussed the controversies surrounding Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, his fellow Republican House member. Per The Hill, speaking with New Day host John Berman, Kinzinger argued that his colleague should not even be considered a Republican. “Well let’s be clear, she’s not a Republican. I mean, she may be like this new definition of Republican, but that’s — that’s kind of a RINO thing and Republican in name only.” Berman pushed back, pointing out that Greene is a member of the House Education and Labor Committee. “I personally don’t think she should have any committees,” Kinzinger replied, but the host noted that Greene is not only on important House committees, but also popular with Republican voters, given that she was able to win the GOP primary and ultimately prevailed in the general election. Kinzinger nonetheless insisted that Greene...

    Adam Mosseri has a broad view of Facebook, its capabilities, and its challenges. And Facebook has a lot of challenges right now: the attack on the Capitol was at least partly driven by conspiracy theories and misinformation on social media; all of the major platforms have banned or restricted Donald Trump, prompting a reckoning about content moderation; the Federal Trade Commission and 48 attorneys general across the US have filed a major antitrust lawsuit that seeks to break Facebook up entirely; and there is new competition from TikTok, which has taken over Instagram’s relevance to culture in surprising ways. Mosseri is my guest on this week’s Decoder. Currently the Facebook executive in charge of Instagram, he started at Facebook over a decade ago as a designer, and he’s held a number of important roles since then — at one point he was responsible for Facebook’s News Feed and the algorithms...
    Adam Schiff said Sunday that Donald Trump should no longer receive intelligence briefing whether before or after his term ends as he cites national security concerns. 'There's no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future,' the House Intelligence Committee chairman told CBS' 'Face the Nation' on Sunday morning. 'I don't think he can be trusted with it now and in the future, he certainly can't be trusted,' Schiff continued. 'Indeed, there were, I think, any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn't trust the president would safeguard that information and protect their sources and methods. And that makes us less safe.' Although there are only three days left of Trump's presidency, former FBI director James Comey said that former presidents are sometimes given intelligence briefings about the state of...
    House Intel Committee chair Adam Schiff said on Face the Nation Sunday President Donald Trump should not get any intel briefings after he leaves office. Margaret Brennan first spoke with Schiff about the Capitol mob, the ongoing investigations, and investigations into whether members of Congress aided rioters. Brennan then brought up a recent op-ed by Susan Gordon, the former principal deputy director of national intelligence, that argued even though every former president continues to receive intel briefings, that should not happen with Trump. In part, Gordon wrote, “I do not make this recommendation casually. It is based on my deep understanding of threats to national security, on decades protecting our people and interests overseas, and my experience deploying technical means to counter our adversaries.” Schiff agreed: “There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing. Not now, not in the future. I don’t think he can...
    Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff said on Sunday that President Donald Trump “can’t be trusted” with intelligence briefings.

WATCH: “Absolutely,” Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, responded. “There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future.

    Congressman Adam Kinzinger, one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump on Wednesday, has been a frequent critic of the president. He believes that Mr. Trump incited violence on January 6, when he encouraged his supporters to "fight like hell" to overturn the election hours before a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol. "I think the president for all intents and purposes is not the president. He's just nuts. He's going crazy," Kinzinger said an interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett for this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast.

    Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger said Sunday that Donald Trump is peddling a 'scam' meant to fuel 'violence' in his supporters by claiming Congress could still overturn the election by rejecting the Electoral College results on January 6. 'It is a scam and it is going to disappoint the people that believe this election was stolen, that think this is an opportunity to change it,' he told CNN host Dana Bash. Trump is pushing for Republican in Congress – specifically senators – to jump on board with a plan to challenge Electoral College votes in five swing states that went blue last month. The effort is being headed in the House by Alabama Republican Mo Brooks. He needs at least one senator to challenge the results in order to bring the motion up for debate in the joint session next month where Congress will most surely certify the election for Joe...

They should be ashamed. History will remember. Never give up. See everyone in D.C. on January 6th.' The tweet was labeled by Twitter as a disputed claim.

No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies. Embarrassing. #RestoreOurGOP' Kinzinger followed up minutes later: 'All this talk about Jan 6th from @realDonaldTrump and other congressional grifters is simply explained: they will raise money and gain followers by blaming everyone else knowing full well...
    NBA commissioner Adam Silver revealed Monday that the league has examined previous analysis into expansion but  adding new teams is still not “on the front burner.” The Charlotte Bobcats — now known as the Hornets — were the most recent franchise to join, taking the total to 30 in 2004. Toronto and Vancouver were new in 1995 as the NBA moved into Canada, though the latter relocated to Memphis after the 2000-01 season. NBA 2020-21: SN’s season predictions Speaking to the media on the eve of a new season, Silver confirmed that the impact of the coronavirus pandemic prompted the NBA to “dust off” data on the impact of expanding in the future.  “I think I’ve always said that it’s sort of the manifest destiny of the league that you expand at some point,” Silver told reporters. “I’d say it’s caused us to maybe dust off some of the analyses on the economic and competitive impacts of expansion.  ...

The Jets are 0-9, with a clear path to a winless season. If the Jets lose every remaining game they will get the No. 1 overall pick. Assuming Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence doesn’t stay in school or try to pull a John Elway/Eli Manning and force a trade, the Jets would then draft one of the best quarterback prospects in decades. For a franchise that has been searching for a top-flight quarterback since Joe Namath, that’s a big deal. It’s easy to wonder if, organizationally, the Jets understand that getting Lawrence is far better than winning a game or two the rest...
    The mainstream media "cried wolf," author and comedian Adam Carolla said Thursday, reacting to the results of the 2020 presidential election showing tremendous support for President Trump from non-White voters. “What’s happened is CNN and the Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times, they’ve lost their fastball, they’ve been pitching this crap for five years now and, at a certain point, you can only cry wolf so many times,” Carolla told “Fox & Friends.” “How many times can you call someone racist, how many times can you call a party racist, how many times can you call people racist before people stop listening and actually push back the other direction?” Carolla asked. TUCKER CARLSON: MEDIA MISJUDGED TRUMP SUPPORT AMONG NON-WHITE VOTERS Meanwhile, regardless of who wins the presidential election, there was no blue wave, no overwhelming anti-Trump surge, and the current president was not rejected as a racist bigot. “The media were...
    President Donald Trump said that his political adversaries in the United States are more difficult to deal with than Russia, China, or even North Korea. During a lengthy telephone interview on Tuesday morning’s edition of Fox News’ Fox  Friends, Trump went off on a tangent describing phone calls with people who would ask him about world affairs, referring to him as “sir.” “They’ll go ‘Mr. President, tell me. Who is the country that’s most difficult to deal with? Is it Russia? Is it China? Is it North Korea? Sir, is it North Korea?'” Trump said. “And I go ‘No, well, by far the most difficult country to deal with is the U.S. It’s not even close,” Trump said. “And they all say ‘You’ve got to be kidding.’ And I say ‘No I’m actually probably not kidding.'” “No we have very very deceptive people,” Trump continued. “We have some people...

Cox/Getty Images NBA owners want to begin next season Dec. 22 with training camps opening Dec. 1. NBA players… seem more divided. Some want to wait until Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 18). Others – especially those who don’t have massive career earnings and didn’t just make a deep playoff run (or even play in the the bubble at all) – are prioritizing maximizing games (i.e., revenue). That can be done more easily with an earlier start. The union backed the faction that wants to start later, though perhaps is gathering differing input from its rank-and-file members. In the meantime, the wait-to-start camp is winning. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN: Sources: On the chances...

    Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday that he is more concerned over President Donald Trump wanting to “lock him up” than Trump saying he has “a watermelon head.” “Well, Andrea, you know, the childhood kind of insults are one thing, it’s just demeaning to the office of the presidency. But what was more concerning at that rally and at others is the president saying that the chairman of the intelligence committee should be locked up, leading a chant of ‘Lock him up,’” Schiff told MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” “At one point this week he said that something ‘should happen to Adam Schiff,'” the congressman continued. “There is no disguising the threatening nature of those words.” He insisted the “president’s words incite violence” and “terrorist plots” like the foiled kidnapping attempt against Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. (RELATED: ‘It Needs To Stop’: Gretchen Whitmer Points To Trump’s Rhetoric At...
    President Donald Trump said Tuesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “ought to be put away” over comments that the Hunter Biden laptop stories are part of a Russian disinformation effort. Trump spoke on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, bringing up Democratic president nominee Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. The New York Post has published a series of reports allegedly stemming from Hunter’s laptop, which was left at a computer repair shop in Delaware in April 2019. The contents were copied and given to Rudy Guiliani, who then gave them to the media. “It’s just crazy. I saw Shifty Schiff get up yesterday and say this is Russia,” Trump said Tuesday. “He’s a sick man. He is so sick. We went through two and a half years of that, plus. This guy, he ought to be put away, or he ought to be, you know, something should happen...
    A SoftBank executive has said that WeWork founder Adam Neumann's $185 million consulting deal was cancelled after he violated the agreement. Marcelo Claure, who took over as WeWork's executive chairman after Neumann's ouster under investor pressure last year, made the remarks at a Wall Street Journal event on Monday.  'I don't think that consulting agreement is still in force,' Claure said of the deal with Neumann. 'I think Adam may have violated some of the parts of the consulting agreement, so that's no longer in effect.'  Claure, a top SoftBank executive charged with rescuing that company's investment in WeWork, declined to elaborate on how Neumann may have violated the agreement, saying it was the subject of pending litigation.

    Adam Neumann’s golden parachute just lost nine figures. The erstwhile founder and CEO of WeWork appears to have had his $185 million consulting fee yanked, according to his replacement who claimed on Monday that Neumann violated an agreement with WeWork’s owner, Japanese conglomerate SoftBank. “I don’t think that consulting agreement is still in force,” Marcelo Claure said at The Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live conference on Monday. “I think Adam may have violated some of the parts of the consulting agreement, so that’s no longer in effect.” While Claure declined to specify what Neumann might have done to blow $185 million, the 41-year-old Neumann was revealed to be a colorful character given to bizarre decision-making before his unceremonious ouster last year. Leading up to his September 2019 departure following a failed IPO attempt, reports swirled that Neumann promoted a party culture at WeWork that included him smoking weed on...

    Adam McKay. Jon Kopaloff/Getty Adam McKay told Insider that it was time to go back to comedies after making the Dick Chaney biopic, "Vice."

Rachel Maddow told Schiff she doesn’t normally cover statements Trump makes, but this is different because what he’s saying now “crosses the line” and that “this is essentially the president in new territory in terms of his threat to the democracy.” Schiff said people need to take this seriously: “This is a moment that I would say to any Republican of good conscience working in the administration, it is time for you to resign… If you have been debating about whether you can continue to serve the country by serving this president, you can’t. It is time to resign. I would say to those who have been on...

    If members of Congress have leaked classified information to the media, they should be prosecuted, former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said on "Outnumbered" Monday. On Sunday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe defended his decision to scale back in-person briefings to lawmakers on election security, telling "Sunday Morning Futures" that "within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes to create a narrative that simply isn't true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China."

    Donald Trump is “willfully fanning the flames” of violence in order to create division that he ultimately believes will help his re-election campaign, Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff claims. The chair of the House Intelligence Committee appeared on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday to discuss the recent spate of shootings at protests across the United States. Trump has been accused of fueling much of this conflict through incendiary statements on social media that critics said appeared to support the calls to arms from many on the far right. As Schiff said, the clashes that have erupted in places like Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Portland, Oregon, are playing into Russia’s hands. Experts have warned that Russia is interfering in the 2020 presidential election as it did in 2016, seeking to sow division among Americans. “They are once again doing their best in social media, and other means, to grow these divisions...

    Despite the uncertainty that loomed before the NBA began its venture to restart the 2019-20 season, the resumption of the campaign within the league’s Orlando, Florida bubble campus has proven successful so far. In an interview with Sports Illustrated‘s Chris Mannix that was published on Thursday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver appraised the operation as functioning even better than he had expected it would. “It’s better than what we had envisioned. Players have taken to it in a more spirited way than we thought they would,” said Silver. “We knew that this would require enormous sacrifice on everyone’s part, but I think that what is hard to calibrate—and this maybe goes to my experience when I first came into the arena—is the human emotion that comes with being around other people. And I think everyone realized they missed it more than they even understood.” Silver went on to share that people...

    Donald Trump faced serious allegations regarding Russian interference in the United States elections from Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California. The representative appeared on MSNBC and leveled some serious accusations at the president, and he noted that Trump is Putin’s choice. Schiff said that the president is not attempting to deter the Russians from helping him win the 2020 election. He went even further and asserted that Trump encouraged the country led by Putin to help him secure a win in November.

    Yesterday Denver Nuggets sophomore Michael Porter Jr made some rash comments about the coronavirus. Via Snapchat, Porter Jr said that  the virus is “being used for population control in terms of being able to control the masses of people.” Later NBA Commissioner Adam Silver appeared on two different news segments and talked about how the NBA is dealing with the pandemic. Silver made an appearance on Good Morning America yesterday. After discussing how the MLB is unable to control the spread of the virus, Silver seemed confident about the NBA bubble. “Obviously, we’re seeing what’s happening in baseball with the Marlins so it’s something we continue to track very closely,” Silver said. “Having said that, we have confidence in the protocol that we designed.” Silver said he prioritizes the health of his players first. “We would cease completely if we saw (the virus) was spreading around the campus. I wouldn’t (have any...
    The New Orleans Pelicans an Utah Jazz will reportedly kneel in protest of racism during the national anthem when the league restarts its pandemic-interrupted season on Thursday; and despite a longstanding rule against the practice, NBA commissioner Adam Silver appears open to the idea.    'I respect peaceful protest,' Silver told ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday. 'I'm not sure what our players will do when they come out tomorrow night and we'll of course address it at the time, but I also understand these are highly unusual times.'   Protests have erupted across the country since the death of George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis police custody during a violent arrest on May 25. The protests against racial injustice have grown increasingly popular among athletes, many of whom have refused to stand for the national anthem.   ESPN's Malika Andrews cited sources Tuesday night saying that the Jazz and Pelicans players are working...
    Adam Thielen beat the odds in 2013, but he wouldn’t be feeling as good if he were trying to make an NFL team in 2020. When the then-unknown wide receiver made the Vikings practice squad seven years ago as an undrafted free agent out of Division II Minnesota State Mankato, he had a rookie minicamp, spring drills and four preseason games to show what he could do, and the Vikings had a 90-man training camp roster. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Vikings players will have none of those things this year. “I know that if I was going through this offseason as a rookie, I wouldn’t be in the NFL,” Thielen told the Pioneer Press. “There’s no chance. So, that part is difficult (for undrafted free agents), but at the same time it’s a unique situation that nobody could have anticipated.” There were no on-field drills during this past spring,...

As a leader, what really bothers me is that he doesn’t have a relationship with everybody in the building. At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team. If there’s a problem in the...
    In an interview with Newsweek published on Thursday, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California discussed President Donald Trump’s refusal to commit to accepting the results of the 2020 presidential election. Schiff noted that Trump made similar statements in 2016, stating that his behavior is “more dangerous this time around.” “He is laying the foundations to discredit the votes of millions of people who cast their votes by absentee.” The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee warned that hostile actors — foreign and domestic — could seize on Trump’s remarks. “I worry foreign nations might look at amplifying the president’s comments. The president is giving them a great deal of opportunity,” Schiff said. Trump has long argued against vote-by-mail, arguing that it is uniquely susceptible to fraud. Most recently, during an interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the commander-in-chief said that he would “have to see” about accepting the...
    Congressman Adam Smith said he believes it was not China's responsibility to warn the United States about the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is believed to have originated within its borders. In a speech on the House floor Tuesday, Smith voiced his opposition to a proposed measure called the Defend COVID Research from Hackers Act. Rep. Mark Green proposed adding it as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act. Smith said that rushing the amendment through would be a mistake. He also argued that laying the blame at China's doorstep was not totally fair. "One of the gentleman's arguments," he said in reference to Green, "was that China hid the true risk of the virus from the American people, and yes, that is terrible that China did that. It's not actually their job to warn the American people. It's the president's job to warn the American...

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., suggested Monday he would support a subpoena of NBA commissioner Adam Silver to investigate the league’s relationship with China. Hawley expressed concern that the NBA is allowing players to wear preapproved social justice cause messages on their jerseys for causes such as Black Lives Matter but does not allow for messages relating to China or supporting law enforcement. He called a Senate Judiciary committee subpoena of Silver “a great idea.” “If the NBA’s going to put these social justice statements on the back of uniforms, which is what they’re doing now, why is it that there’s nothing on there about, like, free Hong Kong or the Uyghurs or anything that has to do with the billions of dollars the NBA makes in China?” Hawley said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. Hawley also fired back at ESPN for suspending reporter Adrian Wojnarowski after he...
    Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri indicated Monday morning that he is interested in initiating Senate hearings compelling NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to make public the league’s financial ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Subpoenaing Silver could help flesh out the extent to which the NBA is tied to Beijing, the Republican told radio host Hugh Hewitt. “Well, that’s a great idea,” Hawley said before reiterating his desire for Silver to explain why the NBA won’t allow players to wear messages on their uniforms condemning China’s human rights violations. “It’s not like the players can put whatever they want on the back of the jersey. NBA corporate has approved a handful. And, predictably, they have nothing to say about anything related to China,” Hawley said.

    Savannah Rychcik July 12, 2020 0 Comments House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is attributing the nation’s struggle to combat the coronavirus to President Donald Trump and Republicans lawmakers. Host of ABC’s “This Week” George Stephanopoulos noted there is discussion about another possible coronavirus relief package and asked Schiff if he is confident they will be able to get something accomplished before the House goes on recess, and what more needs to be done to get the outbreak under control. Schiff expressed his fear Republicans will not act and explained the situation the nation is in could have been prevented. “I’m concerned that the Republicans in Congress will not rise to the challenge of this virus and we will have more economic suffering and more death than necessary,” Schiff said. He added, “It didn’t have to be this way, but both the combination of the president’s incompetent response and the Republican unwillingness...
    Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, learned of the reports of Russian bounties on United States soldiers in Afghanistan in February and took no action, The Federalist reported. According to the report, intelligence sources familiar with the briefings claim that Schiff learned of the bounties while on a congressional delegation trip to Afghanistan in February. When pressed if he was aware of the bounties on Tuesday, Schiff said he could not “comment on specifics.” Schiff previously called it “unfathomable” that Donald Trump took no action to the intelligence, Axios reported. Schiff suggested that Trump was not interested in hearing negative reports on Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Because, after all, the president was inviting Russia back into the G8, and it’s kind of unfathomable that he would do that if he was knowing of the fact that his friend Vladimir Putin and the...
    Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger said more information is needed after a New York Times report that Russians paid Afghan militants bounty money to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Kinzinger was one of eight GOP lawmakers briefed on the subject. The New York Times reported American officials intercepted electronic data showing large financial transfers from a bank account controlled by Russia’s military intelligence agency to a Taliban-linked account. The Associated Press reported that suspicions about Russia deepened when members of an elite Naval Seals team raided a Taliban outpost and recovered about $500,000 earlier this year. Kinzinger, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, was one of eight GOP lawmakers briefed on the report. “If the Russians, in fact – and they have meddled in Afghanistan for quite some time – if they were doing this, let’s let this come out and then the president needs to...

    The NBA will be the center of the world’s eyes | Omar Rawlings / . When commissioner Adam Silver was asked whether players in the NBA will be allowed to kneel during the intonation of the anthem, the manager said the league has rules in place that prohibit such demonstrations, but also suggested that cases be handled individually. “We have had a rule in our books dating back to the early 1980s, which even predates David Stern as commissioner,” said Silver, “Players must line up during the national anthem. I also understand the role of protest and I think we will deal with that situation when it comes up. “ Silver says NBA will handle kneeling when it happenshttps: //t.co/Z0bkyeCmGL – Derek Teddy Harris (@ Teddy11_0) June 30, 2020 The kneeling gesture became popular during the 2016 NFL season, when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so in...
