In an interview with ABC News yesterday, House Intelligence Committee official Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) conceded that there is no concrete evidence of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump.

As The Daily Caller reports, Schiff, responding to ABC News host Martha Raddatz, stated that despite the investigation now stretching into its 11th month, “I’m not prepared to say that there’s proof you could take to a jury.”

“But I can say that there is enough that we ought to be investigating,” he continued. “Indeed, it would be negligent for us not to investigate.”

“If a foreign government, in this case Russia, 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.”

In other words, the past 11 months have been a waste of taxpayer money.

    Wait! Did Schiff just, no so subliminally, insert the notion that Trump fired Comey because Comey rejected Trumps sexual advances? Listen to the linguistic linguine that this turdmeister poops out. It happens right about 00:00:53 seconds in.

    • AlexCorvidae

      I’m hoping that he was just positing a hypothetical example. But, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he actually was inferring that. After all there a whole bunch of articles out there that already draw comparisons between President Trumps interactions with Comey and sexual harassment of women.

    • Sandy Logan

      I heard that – and it made me say WHAAAAA!!! Maybe Comey is investigating Trumps trumpet? Or wanted to? Or Trump wanted to get a little too comey with him? These people are Cray Cray.

  • Billy Plante

    If some foreign country has something to hang over the head of our president, we need to know it.

    You mean, like how much money Hillary was given for her campaign by foreign countries?

    • laurie66bay

      Or the contents of a Presidential Candidates illegal private email server that she illegally deleted so it couldn’t be reviewed?

      Stuff like that?

  • Carl

    That guy is a major piece of sh-t. Two minutes of babble. “I think there is evidence,” and then he proceeds to cite none. Asshat.

  • gina b.

    What an ass but I’m speaking biblically. If there is no evidence after almost a year…what are you continually digging for?

  • Pearlbuck

    This Zionist traitor hates Trump because he hates Russia. Russia is the biggest obstacle standing between Israel and relative hegemony for Israel in the Middle east. Scum like Schiff are willing to risk nuclear war in their whacko attempts at regime change in Russia, and Trump’s sane desire for good relations with Russia are causing the witch hunt. This is the elephant in the room that alt-liters like Milo won’t acknowledge. The actual Neo-Nazis assert that Milo’s Jewish heritage is the reason.

      I agree with you. In 2012, according to Obama, Biden, MSN, Kerry & and few others, we were friends with Russia. Remember when they all ganged up on Romney over his concerns on Russia? I’m so sick of this garbage. Must be because the Democrats are trying to win the mid term elections that they keep this going.

      • Pearlbuck

        Syria and Russia are allies. Syria is part of the Shia Crescent. Regime change in Syria has been on the Neocon/Zionist “to-do” list for a long time now (see “A Clean Break”) and Russia is a major obstacle. Thus, the media demonization of Putin and Russia, and the witch hunt against our president.

        • conserve1

          Uh yeah because the neocons of HC and BHO were arming syrians resistance fighters through Benghazi. Those the neocons you mean? The same ones that destabilized Lybia? Wow just wow you are way out of your league when it comes to history.

          • Pearlbuck

            Well, I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt here, and assume that you’re not mentally retarded and just kind of confused. Yes, the Neocons operate in both parties, and infected the Obama administration. So… what’s your noise?

          • conserve1

            Neocons means new conservatives believe me the Dems have none of those.

          • Pearlbuck

            Neocon is a confusing term–like Classical Liberal. The Neocons are a cabal of Trostkyites who reinvented themselves as “conservatives” in order to push their foreign policy objectives–namely, using American blood and treasures to fight proxy wars for Israel. Neocons have infected both parties, and Hillary is a total whore for the Neocon agenda.

          • Keely Swan

            Well said. It’s refreshing to see that others know what’s going on.

    • Keely Swan

      The radical left has allied with radical Islam because they both want to destroy the west – so they’ve teamed up with each other. That’s why the left constantly defends radical Islam while demonizing Russia, because Russia is one of the few countries fighting radical Islam.

      • Pearlbuck

        Nah. In fact, ISIS is an anti-Shia vehicle created by (and funded by) Israel and the Saudis.

      • Pearlbuck

        It’s true that you see these bizarre bedfellows of feminists, gay activists, and Sharia-law-supporting Muslims in the West. True insanity.

      • Pearlbuck

        The left is just asinine–they were crying about the oppression of gays in Chechnya and blaming it on Russia, because they couldn’t say anything bad about Islam!

    On Sunday Martha Raddatz interviewed Newt Gingrich and kept bringing up that Trump was being investigated for collusion with Russia. As many times as Gingrich told her that Comey said there was no evidence of a collusion she wouldn’t let it go. He even told her that Senator Feintstein said there was no evidence. Between her and Schiff, (along with a few others) they are just stirring the pot. I vote we investigate Comey for the leak, Lynch for her part in the Hillary investigation, Hillary, and so on. Then while all these investigations are going on, nothing else gets done and North Korea has developed a nuke that reaches NY and they all ask, how did that happen? And, Putin will be sitting back laughing at the crazy Americans and saying “Yes I hacked the DNC, what are you going to do about it now? Hang Trump for what I did you dumb butts?”

  • AverageJoe1987

    The Dems need to put up or shut up.

    We keep hearing how Trump is guilty. So prove it or stop wasting time and money, Democrats.

    • January

      I now believe they are keeping this up and will continue until the mid-term elections are over. They want those seats really bad.

      • James Harmon

        yep, and they are blowing those out their ass as well.

    • Dan Bennett

      They can’t do the former and they won’t do the latter. They suck.

  • That Guy (Don’t be that guy)

    What a Schiffhead.

  • Bobdole10

    Ya but……..who’s emails were dumped? Haillarys were, and they show her illegal activities. And the fact that they became public is a scandal for Trump??? That’s incredible.

    Someone exposed Hillary right before the election and they want to turn the attention away from her and what was actually in the emails and accuse trump because she is crooked.

  • Larry Wheeler

    Just another example of politicians spending taxpayer’s dollars on useless “investigations” for some political gain, so they believe.

  • MisterBusy

    “Malicious cause”? This is a legal concept? What an effing POS.

  • Munis Munis

    Everybody who talks about collusion between Russia and the Trump Administration does not specify what that collusion is. What exactly did the Russians do to make Trump win. I just can’t understand why the Americans have become so blind. What specifically did the Russians do. If they had manipulated the the voting machines, as the liberals say where and whose votes. The Reporters seem to be as dump as the accusers themselves are. I am getting sick and tired of it all.

  • Chesapeake

    Funny how solid evidence of criminal behavior by the DNC isn’t a crime but imagining Trump’s team colluding with the Russians is worth investigating over and over and over. Unless evidence is manufactured there will never be any. They tried that and it was exposed immediately. Move on and do your damn job. Enough is enough. If you can’t move on resign and work on your Trump project using your own resources.

  • James Harmon

    no, by god they will keep digging until the hole is so big they won’t be able to get out, and then blame Trump and/or the Russians. I find it hard to believe anyone over the age of about 25 doesn’t realize this sort of spying goes on eternally between countries. We are doing the same thing to the russians…
