“We know there was collusion. Why there’s been no indictments [by Special Counsel Robert Mueller], we don’t know,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NewYork) days ago.

“There have been obstructions of justice,” Nadler continued, adding that “the special prosecutor is limited in scope and limited to crimes. What Congress has to do is look at a broader picture. We are in charge … of protecting the rule of law, of looking at obstructions of justice, abuses of power, at corruption, in order to protect the rule of law. …”

For more than two years, now-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has claimed to have “more than circumstantial evidence” that President Donald Trump “colluded” with “Russians.”

Mueller spent 675 days and $25.2 million investigating this claim. His Democrat-donor investigators interviewed 500 witnesses, issued 2,800 subpoenas, executed 500 search warrants, and indicted 34 people and three companies. But Mueller found zero collusion by President Trump or his people with the Russian government.

Yet Adam Schiff continues to accuse the president of collusion. And, as he has from the beginning, Schiff refuses to reveal his evidence.

“Your willingness to continue to promote a demonstrably false narrative is alarming,” said a letter to Schiff signed by all nine Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee. “The findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions and have exposed you as having abused your position to knowingly promote false information, having damaged the integrity of this Committee, and undermined faith in U.S. government institutions.”

The Republican committee members declared they have “no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as Chairman of this Committee.”

“I think [Schiff] should lose his security clearance,” says former Congressman Jason Chaffetz, “and I don’t think he should be on the House Intelligence Committee,” said the Utah Republican.

“It is a privilege to sit on this committee,” said Chaffetz, former House Oversight Committee Chairman, “but [Schiff] used the guise of ‘Hey, I see classified information and nobody else does and I’m telling you I’ve seen it first-hand.’ He’s … making it up and he shouldn’t have a security clearance if you’re going to act like that.”

If Schiff is stripped of his security clearance, he could not sit on the House Intelligence Committee, whose members are trusted with access to America’s most sensitive secrets.

But Schiff, as the committee’s ranking Democrat, became its chairman because his party won a majority of House seats in last November’s midterm election. The Democratic Party won in large part because of the lies and smears about Russian collusion that Schiff and his comrades waged against President Trump.

Now Schiff and Nadler (who has demanded tons of documents from 81 targeted Trump associates) plan to continue their reckless wrecking of the president’s reputation until the 2020 elections.

Ignored by Mueller, indisputable evidence of pro-Clinton Russian and Ukrainian collusion to steal the 2016 presidential election exists. The so-called Trump Dossier was largely written by Russian agents picked by Christopher Steele, former head of Great Britain’s MI-6 Russia Desk. Steele was employed to concoct this fraudulent propaganda by Democrat-funded Fusion GPS.

Schiff implies that Donald Trump, Jr. “colluded” with a Russian lawyer. But she, both just before and after their 15-minute conversation about baby adoptions, met secretly with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Was this sole meeting one of several attempts to “set up” Trump for destruction or a coup d’état?

The Dossier was used to smear Trump, then to obtain warrants to spy on Trump associates. These warrants were illegal, because our intelligence agencies never verified whether the Dossier was factually accurate, and never told the FISA judge(s) granting the warrants that the Dossier was a campaign weapon invented for Hillary Clinton’s partisan use against her Republican opponent.

This almost certainly means that all information obtained directly or indirectly through use of these warrants and the Dossier, including the Mueller investigation itself, is what legal scholars call “fruit of the poisoned tree” and must be thrown out.

The Dossier was bankrolled not only by Clinton but also by the Democratic National Committee, in which Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler are card-carrying leaders and policymakers.

All senior Democrat officeholders were accomplices in Russian collusion by their sinister connection to DNC funding of the Dossier. They illegitimately won House control through this Russian help. Every veteran Democrat in both House and Senate should resign immediately or be voted out because of their foreign collusion.
