A resurfaced video shows Congressman Adam Schiff slamming former National Security Advisor John Bolton for having “lack of credibility.”
Schiff made the remarks back in a 2005 interview on CNN, where he was undermining President George W. Bush’s decisiom to nominate Bolton as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
“Mr. Bolton has been awol. He’s been more focused on the next job, then doing well at the last job,” Schiff is seen saying in the interview.
“…John Bolton’s politicization of the intelligence he got on Cuba and on other issues. Why would we want someone with that lack of credibility? I can’t understand,” Schiff said.

Schiff’s 2005 comments directly contradict him flirting with the idea of having John Bolton testify over claims made in his new book “The Room Where It Happened.” Video Below
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) suggested to NBC’s Chuck Todd that former national security adviser John Bolton may testify before his panel soon, and doesn’t think that Congress “should wait” to explore possible “impeachable acts” related to Bolton’s book.
