Weekend News Bytes — Feb. 24, 2020

(AmericanProsperity.com) – Over the weekend, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said no one has played into the Russian hands more than Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor got political in a dissenting opinion on Friday, accusing conservative justices of having a bias toward the Trump administration — and, Bernie Sanders tweeted he views himself to be at war with both Republicans and Democrats — setting off a negative response from members of the Democratic establishment.

Is Adam Schiff Helping the Russians?

As the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff led the Russian hoax investigation against President Trump.

According to Ratcliffe, Schiff is now using the Intelligence Committee to leak information indicating Russia is interfering in the 2020 election and trying to help get Trump re-elected.

Ratcliffe says that’s not what the intelligence says. A national security official told CNN on Friday he agrees and says the information was “mischaracterized.”

Ratcliffe further said no one has helped the Russians disrupt American elections more over the last three years than Schiff.

Justice Sotomayor Says the Supreme Court Is Biased for Trump

In a 5-4 case for the Trump administration about a “wealth test” for legal immigrants, Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor went beyond dissenting to accusing her conservative colleagues’ apparent bias.

As one of the more liberal justices on the Supreme Court, Sotomayor claimed that the court follows a predictable pattern that results in the conservative majority of the court giving the Trump administration whatever it wants.

She further stated the court doesn’t look at cases objectively, blames the court for breakdowns in the appellate process, and said that the court should seek fair and balanced decision making.

Bernie Sanders Declares War on Democrats

Once again, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has declared war on both the Republican and Democratic parties — setting off a war of words with the Democratic establishment.

On Friday, The Washington Post reported that the Sanders campaign was informed that the Russians were attempting to help his campaign.

On Friday night, Sanders tweeted:

Sanders has repeatedly said that the United States needs a political revolution.

In response to Sanders, former Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart on Twitter asked Sanders what he had ever done for the party.

On Saturday, MSNBC’s Joy Reid complained that Sanders has refused to register as a Democrat. She further said Sanders was creating a hostile takeover of the party, not a merger.

In addition, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Sanders’s victory in Nevada was like the Nazi invasion of France in World War II.

Over the weekend, South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) hinted at endorsing Biden and said on Sunday that South Carolina Democrats won’t take well to a socialist.

Things are certainly getting interesting!
