POLL: Should Adam Schiff be removed from office for lying to the American public?
Earlier this month, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said a Russian lawyer’s 2016 offer of damaging information on Hillary Clinton to members of the Trump campaign and their subsequent meeting amounts to “direct evidence” of collusion.
“I think there is direct evidence in the emails from the Russians through their intermediary offering dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of what is described in writing as the Russian government effort to help elect Donald Trump,” Schiff said on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” in response to a question about collusion.
Schiff is a known Trump critic, but his rhetoric towards the president has been one of direct assumption. He has made repeated claims and comments that the Trump presidency is a collusion culprit with the Russian government. He has hardly ever considered the idea that collusion between the two entities simply doesn’t exist. And while some Democrats have restrained from saying there is direct evidence, that has not halted Schiff from doing so.
Special counsel Robert Mueller submitted his long awaited report on the possible collusion links this weekend. It’s been a two-year process, and while the contents of the report have not been made public yet by Attorney General William Barr, it’s been revealed that no indictments or charges will be brought against President Trump, which is a clear indication the collusion theory has run dry.
That hasn’t stopped Schiff and other Democrats from backing down. Schiff announced Saturday that if he and his constituents are not satisfied with the report, they will subpoena Mueller to testify his findings publicly.
In essence, the left-leaning enamor for Mueller has quickly turned sour now that the probe is over and doesn’t fall in their favor. At this point, Trump is vindicated of Russia collusion ties; so should Schiff issue an apology to the president and the American people?
Or better yet, should he resign from his position as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee? Or even as a representative, considering his rhetoric has done damage to the president and those associated with him?
