Special counsel John Durham's report on the Department of Justice's conspiracy-fueled investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion again raises questions about Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the extent to which he may have knowingly misled the American people.
Schiff prosecuted former President Donald Trump in the court of public opinion for years while the congressman served as the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. In 2017, Schiff was the committee's ranking member and privy to classified information not released to the public. He claimed that the evidence against Trump was "damning."
"We continue to fill in all of the missing pieces, but we do know this: the Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help, the Russians gave help, and the president made full use of that help. And that is pretty damning whether it is proof beyond a reasonable doubt of conspiracy or not,"
Schiff said during a December 2017 appearance on CNN.
The California Democrat lectured the then-president on the importance of integrity and honesty in public office.
"The president believes this investigation is an attempt to undermine his legitimacy or credibility. It is not,"
Schiff said in March 2017. "When a president of the United States makes claims that are proved baseless, it weakens the presidency and undermines our security and standing in the world."
"Cherish the trust and hope that was placed in you by virtue of your office by never again advancing claims that you know - or should know - are simply not true,"
After a four year investigation, Durham has debunked Schiff's claims, stating that the FBI opened up the investigation into Trump, code-named Crossfire Hurricane, "during the presidential election season based on raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence."
The FBI's treatment of Trump differed starkly from its treatment of the Clinton campaign, according to Durham.
