• Collusion Case Collapses: 53 Witnesses, No Evidence; Rep. Adam Schiff Should Be Held Accountable

    Surge Summary: It’s settled. There is no evidence that the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Russians to win the 2016 election. Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, who played a principle role in leading this phony attack, misled the American people for months on this matter; he needs to be held accountable

    by Gary Bauer

    The alleged case of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has utterly collapsed.  This isn’t exactly breaking news, but it is absolutely essential that the American people know the truth about their president and his persecutors in Congress and within the Deep State.

    Earlier this week, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell notified Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, that 6,000 pages of deposition transcripts taken during Schiff’s investigation of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 campaign were ready for release.

    Schiff response?  He’s not ready to release the transcripts.

    Sources tell Fox News that the transcripts all show the same thing:  “Not one of the 53 witnesses could provide evidence of collusion.”  And, of course, we know that Special Counsel Robert Mueller came up empty handed, too.

    Here’s the bottom line:  Adam Schiff lied.  He has lied repeatedly to the American people about FISA abuse and his contacts with Eric Ciaramella and other witnesses in the impeachment charade.

    Remember, the House Intelligence Committee interviews were taking place while Schiff was going on national talk shows every Sunday saying things like this, “Yes, there’s ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”

    Well, there never was any evidence of collusion, and one witness after another – 53 of them in total – told Mr. Schiff just that.  Yet he and Nancy Pelosi and the left-wing media and their Deep State allies kept pushing a false narrative to the American people that their president was a traitor.

    No one with Schiff’s record of deceit should be anywhere near the Intelligence Committee, much less leading the Intelligence Committee!

    The lesson of Watergate was that no one, not even the president, was above the law.  Certainly, no president can be below the law.

    As Attorney General Barr recently said:

    “I think the president has every right to be frustrated, because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history.  Without any basis [the FBI] started this investigation of his campaign, and even more concerning, actually is what happened after the campaign . . . to sabotage the presidency.”

    Every American — Republican, Democrat, Independent — should be outraged by this coordinated attempt to smear, undermine and overturn a duly-elected president and his administration.
