[Ed. – About to be hoisted by his own petard?]
The ski resort meeting between Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and the founder of Fusion GPS shows that the House Intelligence Committee chairman is the wrong person to trust with leading a serious, unbiased inquiry.
For more than two years, Schiff has led the fight to make the Russia-collusion narrative stick. … But he may have played a bigger role in all this than anyone realized. Last summer, as John Solomon noted recently, Schiff was spotted openly talking with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson in Aspen, Colorado. This, of course, leads to many new questions about Schiff’s affiliation and involvement with Fusion GPS. Was this the first time he met with Glenn Simpson? What is his past history with one of the more significant characters in the Russia-collusion hoax?
Schiff is still working to hold up the increasingly waterlogged tent of the “collusion” story. … [J]just as we were never told exactly what “the Russians hacked the election” means, Schiff is now playing word games with “collusion.” In an interview this month, he claimed that just talking to the Russian government about building a Trump Tower in Moscow constituted “collusion.”
This malleable definition of collusion could come back to haunt him.
