Doubling down on his conspiracy theory of Trump/Russia collusion, Schiff said he still believes that “evidence is in plain sight” regarding the allegations that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russian government in an effort to influence the 2016 presidential election.
“There was a big difference between whether there was evidence of collusion — and I think that evidence is in plain sight — and whether you can establish proof beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal conspiracy,” Schiff said.
Asked Schiff tonight if he would drop his probe after Mueller didn't find a Trump-Russia conspiracy, and he said: "Our investigation has always focused on counterintelligence issues, that is, is the president or anyone around him compromised in some way. That work has to go on." pic.twitter.com/JIEKIgveX3— Manu Raju (@mkraju) 26 March 2019
Schiff also hit-out at Attorney General William Barr, who delivered the key findings of the Mueller report in a letter to Congress on Sunday:
“You have [an] attorney general who applied for the job by talking down any potential obstruction conviction or indictment who then went to a Senate confirmation and refused to recuse himself.
I don’t think under those circumstances he should ever have been confirmed. But he has now done the job he applied for, which is attempt to exonerate Mr. Trump.”
