(National Sentinel) Phony allegations: Remember when Democrats used to complain about how much money Congress was “wasting” on “bogus” investigations into nefarious behavior by President Obama and his inner circle?
Not anymore, now that congressional investigations are focused on President Donald J. Trump and his inner circle – even if after nearly a year there has been no evidence found by anyone that there’s been a crime committed.
In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, admitted that there’s no proof Trump “colluded” with Russia, but nevertheless, the investigation must go on.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
The 11-month-old investigation into whether President Trump or members of his campaign colluded with Russians has still not turned up any evidence that’s strong enough to put before a jury.
That’s according to California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, which is overseeing one of the parallel investigations into whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the election.
“I’m not prepared to say that there’s proof you could take to a jury,” Schiff told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on Sunday when asked if he’s seen proof of collusion.
As a leader of the House committee, Schiff has been able to review classified information held by various agencies of the intelligence community. He has also sat in on briefings with FBI officials to review information in the case.
Oh, but forget about actually ending the investigation; after all, the Democrats have to have something to run on in 2018, since their political ideology is bankrupt and they’ve got no ideas on how to improve the country.
“I can say that there’s enough that we ought to be investigation,” Schiff said Sunday.
“Indeed, it would be negligent for us not to investigate. If a foreign government…has something that they can hang over the head of our president or our administration that can influence U.S. policy, it is very much in our national security interest to know it.”
Whatever, Mr. Schiff. It’s time for Democrats to put up or shut up about all of this ‘Russia’ BS. Ditto for the #neverTrump RINOs who should have never launched these bogus investigations in the first place.
