Ever wonder why we don't have declassifed documents from House Intel?

Just the NewsIn late September 2018 with a mid-year election approaching, the often bitterly divided House Intelligence Committee forged a rare bipartisan moment: Its Republican and Democratic members voted to make public the transcripts of 53 witnesses in the Russia collusion investigation.

But what was hailed as an act of transparency has not been fulfilled 19 months later, even though U.S intelligence has declassified and cleared the transcripts for release.

The answer why lies in the backroom dealings of Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat and its current chairman, according to interviews and memos obtained by Just the News.

Turns out Schiff has been blocking the process, and now that we have an Acting DNI willing to start exposing things, John Solomon has sued under FOIA to get access to them.
