“The level of trust and the level of everything down there is – it’s poison”

Have you heard that they want to build the wall in the House Intelligence Committee? There is the actual talk of installing a partition between the staffs that sit on either side of the aisle. It sounds bizarre and something that you might utilize in a kindergarten to separate bad behaviors. Stop laughing. They are dead serious and the goal is to stop some of the leaks from the Committee. The games being played between Devin Nunes on the right and Adam Schiff on the left must end. Here is a way to do it.

As Written and Reported By Allahpundit for Hot Air:

Not that wall. This wall would be small enough to fit inside secure facilities for reviewing intelligence documents. He’s going to literally wall off Republicans from Democrats so that neither (but especially Democrats) can leak on the other. No foolin’.

I’m fine with it so as long as Adam Schiff pays for it.

In a sign of increasing partisan hostilities, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee plan to construct a wall – a physical partition – separating Republican and Democratic staff members in the committee’s secure spaces, according to multiple committee sources. It’s expected to happen this spring…

“I swear to God I didn’t know that,” said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Florida, when asked about the plan. While acknowledging a wall might not be constructive for the committee’s work, he said, “The level of trust and the level of everything down there is – it’s poison. It’s absolute poison down there.”…

While other House committees commonly have some divide between their majority and minority staff, for a committee whose history, broadly, and whose burden, arguably, is to be functionally bipartisan, the plan for the wall – in all its unfortunate symbolism……..
