• Rep. Adam Schiff’s Right Hand ‘Gumshoe’ — Staunch Democrat, Leftist Links

    Surge Summary: A major investigator working for Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff in the Trump Impeachment Inquiry is Daniel Goldman, a staunch Democrat with links to Democratic leaders and the Leftist network MSNBC. 

    Although most Americans are familiar with the name Congressman Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the powerful House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, few will know about the men and women who actually did the legwork on the Trump Impeachment Inquiry and who most likely fed Rep. Schiff their findings, their suspicions and their opinions during a hearing that was as boring as it was uninformative.

    Schiff’s top gumshoe on the Trump case was Senior Advisor and Director of Investigations (Maj.) for the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Daniel Goldman.

    Goldman is the former Deputy Chief of the Organized Crimes Unit of the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  While a prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, Goldman prosecuted a variety of cases, including securities and white-collar fraud cases, as well as a racketeering and murder conviction against the acting boss of the Genovese Crime Family.

    With his fellow attorney, Daniel Noble, Goldman was tasked with the interrogation of those who’ve been called to testify about Trump and his relationship with Ukrainian government officials concerning an investigation by a prosecutor in that former Soviet country of former Vice President Joe Biden, now a presidential candidate, and his son, Hunter Biden, and the withholding of U.S. military aid while in office.

    Prior to his time at the USAO, Goldman clerked for Judge Charles R. Breyer on the U.S. District Court of Northern California and Judge Robert D. Sack on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

    While he is investigating Trump, he is good friends with [Leftist MSNBC talk host Rachel] Maddow and other leftist commentators.

    “You would think that having been on the front lines fighting the so-called Five Families of La Cosa Nostra, Goldman would have a superior understanding of corruption, fraud, extortion and violence, but he appeared to have been a perfect member of Rep. Shifty Schiff’s anti-Trump probe,” said former New York City Police detective and task force member Mel Weiner.

    Goldman earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University, and his Juris Doctorate (J.d.) from Stanford Law School. As a result of his strong links to California and New York Democrats such as Rep. Schiff, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-New York, he is a staunch Democrat and is viewed as a Party-First politician.

    Goldman has appeared many times in national media since leaving the USAO, especially as a legal commentator on MSNBC and CNN, as well as other news outlets seeking the demise of President Donald Trump. On one occasion as a MSNBC contributor, he stated clearly the Intel committee probe showed that Trump had committed a felony. However, the interviewer never asked for an explanation and Goldman volunteered nothing to prove his assertion.

    Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, questioned Democratic counsel Daniel Goldman about how Democrats used phone call records subpoenaed during the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. Collins repeatedly asked Goldman who ordered the matching of phone records to Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. “I’m going to go on record and tell you I’m not going to reveal how we conducted this investigation,” Goldman said, arguing that it was “routine” and “standard” investigating practices. Goldman testified during a House Judiciary Committee meeting on Dec. 9.
