Adam Schiff went on CNN and told this insane lie about Donald Trump

Adam Schiff is running for the U.S. Senate.

Schiff is still leading anti-Trump witch hunts.

And now Adam Schiff went on CNN and told this insane lie about Donald Trump.

For years, Adam Schiff falsely claimed to have direct evidence that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy cited this lie for why he removed Schiff from the House Intelligence Committee.

On CNN’s State of the Union, host Dana Bash pressed Schiff on the fact that the Mueller report admitted the investigation never turned up evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“You said that there was direct evidence of the fact that Donald Trump colluded with Russia back in 2016. Special Counsel Robert Mueller said in his report, quote, ‘The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government.’ Republicans argue that is proof that you used your position on the Intelligence Committee to potentially mislead Americans, which is why you should not be on the Intelligence Committee,” Bash stated.

Even in the face of all this evidence, Schiff doubled down on his lie and still claimed to have proof of Trump-Russia collusion.

Schiff cited a claim – which is disputed – that Paul Manafort’s business partner, Konstantin Kilmnick, was a Russian intelligence asset and that Manafort shared polling data with him.

“If you read the Mueller report, he makes clear in the first few pages of the report that he states no conclusion on whether Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russians. But what he does find, and it is what we found in our investigation, that Donald Trump’s campaign manager was sharing internal campaign polling data and their strategy for key battleground states with an agent of Russian intelligence while that same unit of Russian intelligence was helping the Trump campaign, both with a hacking and a dumping operation, as well as a social media operation to elect Donald Trump,” Schiff began.

Schiff made a claim that not even the Democrat prosecutors on Mueller’s staff would make – that Manafort colluded with Russian intelligence – to defend himself against McCarthy kicking him off the Intelligence Committee.

“To most Americans, that is collusion. Whether it’s proof beyond a reasonable doubt to a crime of conspiracy, that’s what Bob Mueller was talking about. I’ve always distinguished between the two. Let me set the record straight. This is only one of a shifting series of rationalizations and pretexts that McCarthy is using,” Schiff concluded.

When Schiff was telling these lies about Trump and Russia in real time, CNN and other corporate-controlled media never asked him to back up his claims.

Schiff leveraged the deranged conspiracy theory to build his brand with the Democrat Party, which allowed him to run for Senate.

But the damage Schiff did to the country by convincing half the people to buy into his lies about Trump and Russia is incalculable.
