  • Paul Sperry, a senior reporter for RealClearInvestigations.com and a New York Post columnist, told Fox’s Brian Kilmeade that he was targeted by California Rep. Adam Schiff because of his reporting on Democrat sources in President Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial.
  • “So, Schiff didn’t like the fact I outed his anonymous whistleblower as a partisan Democrat — he’s a holdover from the Obama White House working in the Trump White House. And [Schiff] also didn’t like the fact that I exposed the whistleblower’s prior relationship with the key member of Schiff’s impeachment staff,” Sperry said.
  • Sperry indicated that he may sue Schiff after internal documents at Twitter revealed the Democrat tried to get him banned from the platform.
  • Sperry said Schiff’s interference affected his ability to do his job for two years, and he is looking at taking legal action. “We are exploring legal options, including defamation,” he told Kilmeade.
