A second hero emerged in the search for truth around Russian collusion.
The hero is Richard Grenell. The truth has revealed that Barack Obama led the coup attempt against President Donald Trump. And that has Leftists hiding down their rat holes.
Grenell completely changed the landscape for Leftists, as he changes the rules. Because the previous rules were set by the foxes guarding the hen house. And with those rules, Congressman Adam Schiff ran roughshod over the Constitution and the American people. However, the swamp drain impacted Team Schiff’s ability to set and control the narrative.
Ric Grenell shook things up recently with the release of the declassified “unmasking list”. Shockingly, the list included 39 Obama administration co-conspirators, including former Vice President Joe Biden. And the ensuing dust-up is far from over.
But while Democrats dealt with that tornado, Grenell dropped another bomb.
Just before leaving his post, Grenell announced new changes, including putting election security briefings back in the hands of the Intelligence Community.
Grenell’s office tweeted:

Clearly, these announcements perturbed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Earlier, Schiff complained of staffing changes made by Grenell. One of those changes included the firing of the then-DNI Inspector General Michael Atkinson.
The Hill reported:
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is warning his panel will “undertake additional oversight” of recent changes to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, including President Trump firing the inspector general of the intelligence community.
Schiff raised several issues related to management of the office in a letter sent Tuesday to Richard Grenell, the acting director of national intelligence.
While Schiff sets the stage for another failed attempt at impeachment, Trump taunted the beleaguered Congressman with additional triggers. So, subsequent to Atkinson’s firing, President Trump fired an additional inspector general, namely State Department IG Steve Linick.
President Trump wrote a letter to Pelosi explaining he no longer had confidence in the inspector general’s ability to serve.
“This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from office the Inspector General of the Department of State, effective 30 days from today.”
Back to Grenell’s changes
As for Grenell’s actions, Schiff issued a statement lambasting Grenell. Schiff stated in his letter that his Congressional committee “did not authorize these changes —announced, once again, late on a Friday—by a temporary and unqualified Acting Director of National Intelligence”.
Schiff’s actual statement:
“President Trump did not nominate you for confirmation as permanent DNI, and it would be inappropriate for you to pursue any additional leadership, organizational, or staffing changes to ODNI during your temporary tenure.”

Clearly, Grenell doesn’t need the authority from Schiff’s committee to make changes to the office he leads, albeit temporary.
Obviously Schiff’s comments speak to how well-contained Democrats had things up to the swamp drain. They had all the swamp rats in place, rats who followed protocol. And Grenell changes things to where Democrats no longer control the process.
Grenell responded to Schiff, putting the little man in his true place:
Only in Washington, DC would one be appointed to a job but not expected to DO the job. @AdamSchiff
I know I speak for many Americans in cheering Grenell’s dismissal of Schiff.
The California congressman is a little man who has usurped way too much power. Furthermore, recent discoveries prove that Schiff is a weasel who should never be allowed to amass political power.
Understand that Grenell sent a shot over the bow to Schiff earlier this month. The acting DNI director warned Schiff to release the secret Russia transcripts or he would.
Schiff capitulated, releasing the documents. And the documents proved that Schiff knew that Russian collusion was a hoax. Yet, he proceeded with the taxpayer-funded farce. Tonight, Grenell declassified a host of other documents on his way out the door, which smells like trouble for the Democrats if you ask me.
Currently Schiff remains missing in action. No response to Grenell’s latest salvo. Frankly, none is expected.
I suggest Democrats check in on Schiff. He can’t be in a good mental state right now.
