Schiff Holds On To Russia Narrative: 'Evidence of Collusion In Plain Sight'
Chair of the House Intelligence Committee won't let go of Mueller report
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) seems to be one of the last Democrats desperately holding onto the 'Trump and Russia collusion' narrative despite Muller's report clearing the president almost three weeks ago.
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Schiff claimed there was “ample evidence” of collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians.
According to Schiff:
“What I said on your show and others for over a year now, yes, there’s ample evidence of collusion in plain sight. That’s not proof of a conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt," he said.
"I would defer to Bob Mueller’s judgment, and I do. I think what we’re talking about here is the difference between conduct that rises to the level of criminality and conduct that is unethical, unpatriotic and corrupt but may not be criminal."
He continued, “I don’t regret calling out this president for deeply unethical and improper conduct. Not a bit. I think the moment we start to think that we should back away from exposing this kind of malfeasance and corruption is a dangerous point.”
“There is a risk when you have an immoral president, a president lacking in a basic character who violates the norms of office, an even greater risk of doing too little oversight.
"I make no apologies for that. I’ll continue holding this administration accountable.”

Last week, Former Rep. Trey Gowdy claimed Schiff did "everything he could" to stop Trump from being elected and get Hillary Clinton into the White House.
Gowdy said during an interview on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," that Schiff's bias against President Trump has extended well past the 2016 election.
"Adam was a deeply partisan person. He did everything he could to make sure that Hillary Clinton became the next president. And he's done everything he could since he failed at that to keep a cloud over the Trump presidency," he said.
It seems more and more Americans believe the special counsel’s probe was “politically motivated,” according to a new poll.
The CBS News poll reveals a dramatic increase of Americans believing the probe was a Democratic partisan investigation compared to the poll conducted before the investigation ended.
