Adam Schiff Continues Spreading The “Collusion Delusion”
Schiff appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union with Jake Tapper where he continued to spread his collusion delusion.
“Are you saying that Mueller got it wrong? Tapper asked Schiff.
“What I said on your show and others for over a year now, yes, there’s ample evidence of collusion in plain sight. That’s not proof of a conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt. I would defer to Bob Mueller’s judgment, and I do. I think what we’re talking about here is the difference between conduct that rises to the level of criminality and conduct that is unethical, unpatriotic and corrupt but may not be criminal.”
They went on to talk about how Schiff was overstepping as it is not the job of a congressman to substitute their judgment for the voters.
“And you have no regrets of anything you have said in the last couple years? Tapper asked Schiff.
“I don’t regret calling out this president for deeply unethical and improper conduct. Not a bit. I think the moment we start to think that we should back away from exposing this kind of malfeasance and corruption is a dangerous point.”
“There is a risk when you have an immoral president, a president lacking a basic character who violates the norms of office, an even greater risk of doing too little oversight. I make no apologies for that. I’ll continue holding this administration accountable.”
“The House Intel Committee chair has continued to hammer home his belief that, despite the fact that there are not any further indictments at this time, President Trump committed acts that were “deeply unpatriotic, unethical and corrupt.”
“There is plenty of evidence of collusion and corrupt co-mingling of work between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Schiff said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday. “But I fully accept that as a prosecutor that he couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that crime.”
He added that although he accepts Robert Mueller’s ruling that President Trump could not be legally implicated in corruption, but does not necessarily believe that means the president didn’t commit a crime.
“I always said, well, there was ample evidence of collusion in the public record,” Schiff continued. “Whether Bob Mueller could prove the crime of conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt would be up to him and I would accept his judgment and I do.”
Schiff seems like one of those Dems that doesn’t fully accept that Trump is his president. So it is understandable that he would want to hold on to hope that there is collusion that he and his ilk could use to impeach Trump.
