Fox News Star Accuses Adam Schiff of ‘Treason’ for Leaking Classified Information: ‘Felony at Minimum’

Fox News star Emily Compagno, the co-host of “Outnumbered,” has accused Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of committing treason by leaking classified information.

Compagno made the comments while interviewing former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the Fox News show.

Pompeo revealed that he was made aware, while he was serving as CIA director and as secretary of state, that Schiff was leaking classified information.

Compagno then asked, “given that he leaked classified information, which is a felony at minimum up to treason, why has there been no accountability?”

Pompeo said: “It’s a complicated process, right?

“It’s difficult to pin down precisely what happened. But I could tell you that when we provided information to him and to his staff, it ended up in places it shouldn’t have been with alarming regularity.

“We could see it. In the end, I decided, I held back information from them as a result.

“Adam Schiff lied to the American people, and during my time as CIA director and secretary of State, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him.

“I watched the House Intelligence Committee under the leadership of Adam Schiff.

“I watched him denigrate and lower its ability to actually perform its function.

“When he was out talking about the Russia hoax, going on to say that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation, knowing that it almost certainly was not.”


Lauren French, a spokesperson for Schiff denied the charges saying:

“This is another patently false and defamatory statement from Mike Pompeo.

“While we understand that Adam Schiff is a favorite target for the failed lackeys of the Trump administration running for president, reputable news outlets shouldn’t repeat these falsehoods.”

This is not the first time Schiff has been accused of leaking classified information.

In January 2021, former acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Richard Grenell said Schiff and his team “regularly” leaked classified information.

In April 2021, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) claimed Schiff could be a source for the false reports that Russia was offering bounties to Afghan militants to kill U.S. troops.

Schiff spokesman Patrick Boland denied the charges at the time:

“Yet another false and baseless claim by Tom Cotton — you would think he would know better by now,” Boland said.

Schiff has denied leaking classified information multiple times.

He said in 2020:

“I haven’t. My staff hasn’t.

“I can’t speak for what all the members of the committee have done or not done, including a lot of the Republican members.”
