READ: Republicans on House Intelligence Committee Write to Adam Schiff: ‘We Have No Faith in Your Ability to Discharge Your Duties…’

Good luck with that.

The facts are what they are.

“My colleagues may think it is OK that the Russians offered dirt on a Democratic candidate for president as part of what was described as the Russian government’s attempt to help the Trump campaign. You might think that’s OK,” Schiff said. “My colleagues might think it’s OK that when it was offered to the son of the president, who had a pivotal role in the campaign, that the president’s son did not call the FBI, he did not adamantly refuse that foreign help. No, instead that son said that he would love the help of the Russians.”

Schiff tore into the resignation and subsequent criminal probe of Trump’s first national security advisor, Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators over his contacts with the Russians.

“You might think it’s OK that the national security advisor-designate secretly conferred with Russian ambassador about undermining sanctions, and you might think it’s okay he lied about it to the FBI. You might say that’s all OK,” Schiff said. “But I don’t think it’s okay. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical, and I think it is unpatriotic. And yes, I think it is corrupt. And evidence of collusion.”

Schiff added that the only way to know for sure whether Trump acted inappropriately is to see Mueller’s report.

“Now, I have always said whether this amounts to proof of conspiracy is another matter. Whether the special counsel could prove beyond a reasonable doubt the proof of that crime would be up to the special counsel, and I would accept his decision and I do.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rushed to Schiff’s defense, saying she was “proud of the work” he has been doing while simultaneously thrashing the vengeful Republicans.

“Republicans are afraid of the truth… they’re just scaredy cats… afraid of a leader” who’s “calm, professional, patriotic,” Pelosi said. “It’s their own insecurity. Their own fear of the truth, their fear of the facts and their fear of an effective patriotic leader in his measured way who’s going to make sure that the American people know the truth.”

Republicans are on the wrong side of history.

We deserve the truth.
