1 year and 8 months... nothing...

WATCH: Schiff Concedes There Is Still No Proof Of Trump-Russia Collusion

Schiff has been driving the Trump-Russia collusion narrative on behalf of his party for months from his seat on the House Intelligence Committee, claiming recently he has seen “more than circumstantial” evidence of collusion. But he offered nothing substantial to back up his claim when pressed on “The View” to get specific, and acknowledged hard proof of collusion may never materialize, even after an intensive and months-long investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

...
“Is it enough for Mueller to bring charges?” host Meghan McCain asked Schiff. “Because if it isn’t enough for Mueller to bring charges, what does that mean? Charges of collusion.”

Schiff responded by claiming it’s not his job to prove collusion happened, but to provide a narrative about what happened to the public.

...
Translation: If Mueller can’t turn up hard evidence to indict someone, Democrats in Congress will have to rely on a much softer standard of evidence to persuade the public that collusion happened.


That last line is the key. The investigation is simply the framework needed to allow Democrats to bash Trump, and give them leverage down the road.

He is correct its not his job to prove collusion he is there to investigate the Russian intervention in our election. Its Nunes job to investigate the DOJ, not the Russians.


The simple point people keep missing is that the investigation is not cocluded.

A year ago Schiff said there was more than circumstantial evidence of collusion. When asked about this evidence, Schiff had nothing but his usual spin.

Schiff said its the job of the committee to tell the American people what happened, but is upset when Nunes does exactly that, and tells the people about the FISA abuse.

How is this ever concluded if Trump is not guilty? ... and if there is no evidence? At what point do they say - there's nothing on Trump?

At this point, with Schiff continually saying there is more than circumstantial evidence (along with all of the other Dems in Congress) - he is going to look like a fool and a liar if there is no conviction. I don't see how this ever ends...

And then if it is shut down without Trump being guilty, would you accept it, or would you whine about it and continue down the same path of whining that has persisted since Nov. 2016?

They will never accept the fact that Trump is not guilty, never.

They haven't even accepted the fact that he beat the pantsuit off crooked Hillary.

The MSM told them it wasn't possible and they completely believed it.


I've said here for months that the Russian Meme is dead. I'm proved right yet again.

Talking Schiff on "The View": No Treason, No Evidence of Collusion on Trump/Russia

That's NOT what he said.

Keep your pants on, Trumplings.

This game is only in the 3rd inning.

And the score is Mueller 5, tRump 0.

Someone mentioned the investigation isn't over. If it were over and had been done without prejudice, the players in the last administration should be behind bars or in deep hot water. I am tired of his messing around looking at the wrong people. We know who was responsible for the collusion and who crookedly stole the election of their own primary and are still trying to destroy who the voters chose as their president. It is time to stop this circus and let the American people enjoy a rest from the corruption of the party they rejected in the election.

Ok so there is no Russian/ Trump collusion but we can still impeach him asks the Left...

They are so afraid that Trump could actually win in 2020 and that History will show him as a decent President that did some really good things for the country BUT when all this happens I'm sure that the Dems will require an asterik to be placed next to any portrait, statue or carving on Mount Rushmore... The asterik will explain that Trump was a great president but he colluded with Russia.

The Left will never let this claim die because it is the only reason they can fathom of why Hillary lost to him.
