For years now Adam Schiff has distinguished himself in many ways. He is a staunch opponent of Donald Trump. He is willing to spend years on conspiracies (Russian collusion, Ukraine phone call). He also selectively leaks items to the press to help his own narrative.
Now consider this bit of hilarity about the House member.
It was just reported on @MSNBC that House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff received no notification or briefing on the Baghdadi operation.

Considering all of these realities it would only make sense that a secret military mission instituted by the White House would take place without input from the Leaker-In-Chief.
His TS SCI is in jeopardy! Why share this with anyone! His Leaks would have killed US Troops and then he and the liberal media would have blamed Trump!

And thus, the mission was a success & nothing was leaked. I fail to see the problem here.

Of course the man who has proven himself unworthy to be trusted with classified intel is surprised to be out of the loop on a classified mission.
And nobody died. Crazy how that works

It was a closed door meeting, Kyle.

We don’t care who you are, that’s just funny right there!
Then there is something that MSNBC and the democrats do not normally traffick in — reality.
Black ops missions are on a need to know bases the house intel committee isn’t on the list of need to know on these operations they never have been

This is SOP. Only SOCOM commander and potus would be in the know on this. Same happened with bin laden capture between Obama and McRaven

OPSEC / COMSEC Prohibits the dissemination of sensitive information to foreign agents. If schiff or omar had been notified they would have immediately sent texts to their jihadi masters and American lives would have been immediately compromised. ?? #MAGA #KAG

Considering the mission was a consummate success with no loss of American lives there is little to complain about. It also justifies that not telling Schiff was the proper move.
