Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, is done playing games with President Trump and his minions in Congress.
After House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) held a press conference this afternoon to muddy the waters surrounding the Trump-Russia investigation and dismiss the whole thing as “incidental,” Schiff joined Chuck Todd on MSNBC and openly refuted both his assertion and the claims that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper made during Monday’s hearing:
“I don’t want to go into specifics, but I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial, and it very much worthy of investigation.”

At this point, anyone can see that there is far too much evidence for the accusations of potentially treasonous collusion between President Trump, his campaign team/transition team/cabinet, and agents of the Russian Federation to be baseless.
The vehemency of Trump’s denials and the lengths to which he will go to distract the public are a clear sign that he is desperately trying to keep something momentous under wraps. Rep. Nunes’ decision to run to Trump and hand over all the evidence is just more evidence that we need an independent prosecutor and a bipartisan investigation commission to get to the bottom of this.
