Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) ripped ranking member of the House Intel Committee and suspected leaker Adam Schiff (D-CA) Sunday in a Fox News appearance.
Gowdy told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that Adam Schiff makes unsubstantiated claims about the Trump-Russia hoax to further his bid for a U.S. Senate seat.
Maria Bartiromo said to Trey Gowdy, “How long is this going to go on? Because we still haven’t had any evidence of any collusion. When is it appropriate for Bob Mueller to come out and say, yes, definitively there’s no collusion here, but what I have uncovered is collusion at the top of the FBI between FBI leadership and Hillary Clinton.”
Gowdy responded by blasting Adam Schiff.
“Well Maria some of my Democratic colleagues, namely Adam Schiff, said he had evidence, more than circumstantial evidence of collusion, before the investigation even began so keep that in mind,” Gowdy said.
“The ranking Democrat on the House Intel Committee (Schiff) had evidence of collusion before we interviewed our very first witness!” Gowdy continued.
“Almost 60 Democrats voted to move forward with impeachment. Already! Before Bob Mueller’s released a single finding, before the House Intelligence or Senate Intelligence Committees have released a single, solitary finding, almost 60 House Democrats think the president ought to be removed from office and Adam Schiff says he has evidence of collusion,” Gowdy said as Maria Bartiromo shook her head in disbelief.
Gowdy continued by pointing out that there are still several witnesses who need to be interviewed to which Bartiromo replied, “that is infuriating”.
“Well, it’s only infuriating if you have high expectations,” Gowdy replied.
Gowdy then zinged Schiff as campaigning for a Senate seat in California after his name has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Dianne Feinstein’s Senate seat.
Adam Schiff continues to claim he has evidence of Trump-Russia collusion but every time he’s pressured to give specifics he runs in circles citing nothing burger ‘evidence’ that is already publicly available.
