Over a year after President Trump took office, the House Intelligence Committee plans to release a report stating that they have “found no evidence of collusion.”
According to the Washington Post:
“Republicans also determined that while the Russian government did pursue “active measures” to interfere in the election, it did not do so with the intention of helping Trump’s campaign, contradicting the U.S. intelligence community’s findings.”
“The decision is expected to be met with sharp criticism from Democrats, who have said there are still scores of witnesses the committee should call, and argue that Republicans have failed to use subpoenas to obtain documents and require witnesses to answer questions that are central to the investigation.”
The first reports of the plan to release findings were published early this morning. Adam Schiff has not Tweeted at all since that time. When this article was published Adam Schiff was still silent and no reports have been published outlining any statements he has made.
I contacted Adam Schiff’s office this morning after the first reports came out. At this point, he has not returned my call. His curious silence could signal that Democrats know they have been defeated and the truth has prevailed.
Or, it could signal a detailed counter-response is coming. If it is coming from the Democrats we know it will do nothing except muddy the water.
In either case, we can be sure Adam Schiff is full of a lot more than just silence.
UPDATE: I guess Adam Schiff read my article. Eight minutes after I published this, he Tweeted. I guess he is full of more than just silence.
BREAKING: GOP just shut down House Intel investigation, leaving questions unanswered, leads unexplored, countless witnesses uncalled, subpoenas unissued.
If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know. The minority's work continues: pic.twitter.com/oOf13n75Vo
