Elder P’s POV – Early this month Special Counsel Robert Mueller sent his closing report, the result of his 22-month long investigation into Trump-Russia collusion, to the Department of Justice.
Last Sunday, Attorney General William Barr sent a four-page summary to congress stating that no evidence of collusion had been found.
That hasn’t stopped the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, from continuing to spew disinformation that he has overwhelming evidence of collusion between Trump campaign Russia.
Think about how damaging this is. Schiff isn’t some backbencher free to run his mouth without consequences. He’s head of the House Intelligence Committee. He’s one of only 8 members of both chambers of congress privy to the most sensitive information.
One example – until the Mueller Report was completed, China refused to negotiate in good faith hoping Trump’s presidency would be terminated early.
On Monday, Mike Huckabee demanded that Schiff show us his evidence of collusion or shut his pie hole:
“And here’s a little word to Adam the Schiff, Adam you’ve been saying you’ve got evidence, show up with a box full of it and empty it out on the Capitol steps or shut the heck up.”
On Thursday, Republicans decided that they had heard enough and sent a letter to Schiff demanding that he step down.
On Friday it was former Intel Committee member Trey Gowdy’s turn to bash Schiff:

“There was only one campaign that took negative information from Russia. There’s only one campaign that actually paid for that information.
“Remember in the Barr letter, the summary that Barr sent, despite multiple opportunities no evidence of collusion existed between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“And yet Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign were actually spending money to dig up Russian dirt on Trump.
“I’ve never heard him [Adam Schiff] address that.”
Way back in August of 2008, Marc A. Thiessen, a columnist for The Washington Post, described the Clinton campaign’s connection to Russia:
“In April 2016, Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias retained opposition research firm Fusion GPS to compile incriminating information on Trump. Fusion GPS in turn hired Christopher Steele, a former British MI6 operative with sources among Russian government officials.
“That means a paid agent of the Clinton campaign approached Russian officials for damaging material on Trump.”
Democrats bet heavily on the Deep State’s ability to destroy Donald Trump before he’d have the opportunity to expose their involvement in the corrupt criminal cartel that runs our political system.
Here’s the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer telling Rachel Maddow what they had in store for President Trump:
Schiff’s refusal to admit he’s wrong means only one thing, they are out of bullets. Their media has been destroyed. Their control over the corrupt elements within the DOJ, IRS, CIA, FBI, State Department, etc, has been destroyed.
None of their supply lines are functioning as they need them to. Reminiscent of Baghdad Bob, they are now isolated and left to repeat their lies until the final hammer drops on them.
