Schiff demands answers from Pentagon on monitoring domestic unrest

E-mail Print PDF
Congressman Adam SchiffRep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote the Pentagon Monday expressing concerns that the Defense Department might be involved in “unlawful or unethical activities” related to the government’s response to recent nationwide protests.

Schiff, a Democrat from California, wrote Joseph Kernan, the undersecretary of defense for intelligence and security, asking about whether the Pentagon has been asked or was already supporting efforts to surveil the protests. The letter comes days after Yahoo News revealed that employees of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) expressed concern during a virtual town hall that they might be reassigned or tasked with supporting domestic intelligence efforts in some capacity.

In his letter, Schiff cited the “sudden and impulsive manner in which the Armed Forces and law enforcement components from across the federal government have been mobilized to date, and the lack of public transparency regarding their orders,” calling these recent actions “deeply troubling.”
