Representative Adam Schiff has endured ridiculous abuse from Republicans and Donald Trump as he simply fights to bring the American people the truth about the Russia investigation. Schiff appeared on CNN this morning to respond to reports that Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr is not telling the full truth about the Mueller report and the orange is not happy about that.
“There is nothing we can ever give to the Democrats that will make them happy. This is the highest level of Presidential Harassment in the history of our Country!” Trump said this morning, about 45 minutes after Schiff appeared on CNN.

Schiff pointed out the truth that we all know, which is that Trump only installed Barr to try and protect himself from the Mueller probe. “We are two weeks into this. All we have is Bill Barr’s word for this and, of course, that comes from someone who was picked for his hostility to the obstruction case, which appears to be what some of the Mueller team is taking issue on,” Schiff said.

This isn’t rocket science. Why would Mueller need to create a 400 page summary of the Russia and obstruction investigations and take two years to deliver the report if Trump did nothing wrong? How did Barr release his summaries of the Mueller report in less than 48 hours? Even a seasoned reader would have trouble reading through 400+ pages of documentation in such a short amount of time.
Whenever Trump is lying, you know why. Trump also said this morning that, “few people seem to care about the Russian Collusion Hoax, but some Democrats are fighting hard to keep the Witch Hunt alive.” Few people? Yeah right! Try more than half the country! Even Trump’s own people know deep down that he is crooked and they want to see the report too.
Schiff is going to get his revenge on Trump for all the name calling and abuse he has taken. Trump screws up everything so you already know who the winner of this one is going to be.
