Adam Schiff is not backing down … because why should he?
Republicans are sticking to their talking points (I have a feeling if Trump drowned a puppy in 2 inches of water the entire GOP would harmonize about how it was self-defense), and Schiff is sticking to his guns as well.
This morning on ABC’s This Week, Schiff responded to Trump spokes-banshee Kellyanne Conway — who had criticized Schiff over his repeated accusations of Trump campaign collusion — by righteously doubling down.
“I use that word very carefully,” the California Democrat said on ABC’s “This Week,” “because I also distinguish time and time again between collusion, that is acts of corruption that may or may not be criminal, and proof of a criminal conspiracy. And that is a distinction that Bob Mueller made within the first few pages of his report. In fact, every act that I’ve pointed to as evidence of collusion has now been borne out by the report.“
Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has been the subject of frequent attacks by President Donald Trump and his supporters for insisting that the Trump campaign acted inappropriately during the 2016 election season by working with Russians who wished to see Trump elected.
Before Schiff’s interview on “This Week,” Conway criticized Schiff for repeatedly raising the idea of “collusion.“
Schiff also said there was “ample evidence of collusion in plain sight” and that the obstruction of justice Trump carried out was “far worse than anything that Richard Nixon did.”
“I would say in every way this is more significant than Watergate,” he said.
Someone needs to do a movie about the Schiff/Trump wars called Adam and Skeeve. I’d launch my money at the box office in a T-shirt cannon.
