Schiff Can’t Say There’s Evidence of Trump Campaign Colluding With Russia

BY:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) couldn't say on Sunday whether there was evidence of collusion during the 2016 election between the campaign for President Donald Trump and Russia.

Schiff appeared on CNN's "State of the Union," where host Jake Tapper asked Schiff if he had evidence of the collusion some have accused the Trump campaign of.

"The big issue, of course, is whether or not there was collusion among members of the Trump campaign or surrounding the Trump campaign, Trump advisers," Tapper said. "Can you say definitively that there was collusion, there were people affiliated with the Trump campaign who were working with Russians to time the release of damaging information about Hillary Clinton that had been hacked either from John Podesta or the DNC?"

"I don't think we can say anything definitively at this point," Schiff said.

So far no one has been able to point to any solid evidence of collusion, despite investigations from the House Intelligence Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee and the FBI.
