For over two years, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) had claimed that he was positive that Donald Trump had colluded with Russia to interfere and influence the 2016 election.
During the nearly two years of the special counsel, Schiff was one, if not the loudest voice, Schiff not only continued to publicly accuse Trump of colluding with Russia.
He not only kept accusing Trump of collusion, but on more than one occasion, claimed that he had evidence to prove Trump’s collusion with Russia.
Then Special Counsel Robert Mueller burst the Democrats’ bubble when his final report revealed that there was no evidence of collusion between Trump, his campaign and Russia.
Despite Mueller’s report, Schiff still claims to believe that Trump colluded with Russia.
Breitbart – Adam Schiff Still Believes: ‘Undoubtedly There is Collusion’ – Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, told the Washington Post in an interview that he still believes President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with the Russian government, despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller finding that there was no collusion.
Mueller’s report came after an exhaustive, 675-day investigation that involved 500 witnesses and requests for information from 13 foreign governments. His conclusion was summarized in a four-page letter to Congress by Attorney General William Barr on Sunday. Barr quoted Mueller directly: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
“Undoubtedly there is collusion,” Schiff said in an interview this week, after Attorney General William P. Barr submitted a four-page letter to Congress summarizing key aspects of Mueller’s report. “We will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues. That is, is the president or people around him compromised in any way by a hostile foreign power? . . . It doesn’t appear that was any part of Mueller’s report.” …
If Schiff had evidence to prove Trump colluded with Russia, why didn’t he give that evidence to Mueller?
If Schiff had evidence to prove Trump colluded with Russia, why hasn’t he made that evidence public?
Think about it – Schiff hates Trump with a passion and going public with evidence of collusion would definitely hurt Trump and his support base.
The fact that Schiff did not provide his evidence to Mueller or make it public is strong circumstantial evidence to cause most to doubt that he has such evidence and is just lying in order to hurt Trump, but fails to understand that he is only hurting himself.
