Kirsters’ Opinion| Over the weekend, senior advisor to President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, tore into Democratic Representative Adam Schiff while appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”, telling the California lawmaker that he “ought to resign” after President Donald Trump was cleared of having “colluded” with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
Conway’s comments came after a letter written by Attorney General Bill Barr was released which stated that Mueller’s team “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia.”

“Talk about an oxymoron… This man heads the Intelligence Committee in the House. He said, ‘The scandal is of a size and scope bigger than Watergate and there’s plenty of evidence of collusion.’ He ought to resign today,” stated Conway, according to Hannity.com.
“He’s on every TV show 50 times a day for the last two years promising Americans that this President would either be impeached or indicted,” she continued.
Conway stated, “Adam Schiff should resign. He has no right as somebody who has been peddling a lie, day after day after day, unchallenged and not under oath. Somebody should have put him under oath and said ‘you have evidence, where is it’?
“Because Bob Mueller already ran the fair and the full investigation and any partisan and politicized investigation from here on in will never have the credibility of the Mueller investigation and the credibility of Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, what they did here,” she went on.
Fox News reports:
Schiff earlier this month said he thinks a 2016 offer for dirt on Hillary Clinton by a Russian lawyer to members of the Trump campaign and the subsequent meeting is “direct evidence” of collusion on the part of the president’s team.
Last night, Schiff said he believes there is still “significant evidence of collusion” linking the Russian government with President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, despite reports out of the Justice Department that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will not be recommending any further indictments in his investigation.
