    And this is where I suggest that Schiff "shut up" and let the investigation proceed without making overtures to the press.

    Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said Wednesday that the panel had seen an “abundance” of evidence of collusion with Russia and obstruction by Donald Trump’s campaign and administration that is not yet public.

    Speaking to reporters in Washington, Schiff said a lot of information was already in the public domain that pointed to extensive contacts between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin, and later efforts by the Trump entourage to cover up those contacts. But Schiff said there was much more to come out.

    He said: “There is certainly an abundance of non-public information that we’ve gathered in the investigation. And I think some of that non-public evidence is evidence on the issue of collusion and some … on the issue of obstruction.”

    No. NO MORE MEMOS! Memos are for kids! Let the grown ups do their jobs, wrap this up, and we can move on to insuring this doesn't happen again.

    I would agree. In the end, everything will come out and we will see who's lying and who isn't.

    When people make absolute statements / claims that differ from one another, someone is lying.

    I hope that when they are done, they make public all the information. I would love to see the information used to get a FISA on Carter Page so we can see who on the committee is lying.

    Trump’s actions are the biggest proof. He loves Putin, doesn’t want sanctions, will Tweet-shame anyone, anytime, anywhere. But not anyone related to Russia. He loves him some Russians.

    Maybe he will invite the Kremlin over to investigate Mueller. If this was any President... Bush, Clinton, Obama... the country would come together in outrage. I guess tacky luxury and ****** ties and hats made in China have wooed the public to thinking when we are infiltrated, we need to make peace with our attackers. Thanks Con Don!

    I thought conservatives hated political correctness? I have dirt on Hillary, I’m a Russian. ”Hey, I love it.”

    That’s collusion. If it’s not, then what is?

    Trump’s own people are turning on him. It probably won’t be a lib or Mueller who brings his campaign (not necessarily him) down, but someone on his staff, past or present. Even RNC PR BS said Trump’s first days were chaotic. Geeze, who would have thunk’.

    There really isn't much rocket science involved with understanding why Page was being investigated AGAIN.

    The irony of your post is astounding. Especially given the subject.

    There are multiple investigations into L'Affaire Russe


    There's the Mueller investigation-- which the conservative press has attacked from day one. (latest example: http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/02/...ance-memo-release-ending-mueller-russia-probe)



    There's the Senate Intelligence Committee-- Burr and Warner
    There's the House Intelligence Committee--Nunes and Schiff
    There's the Senate Judiciary Commitee--Grassley and Feinstein

    various pundits had suggested that in the event that he does not discover wrongdoing by the President,Mueller is permitted only to write a report for Rosenstein, which he is perfectly entitled to sit on.

    In the meantime, the midterms are coming up, and the Russians are anxious to meddle once more. So, congress has an obligation to assess the threat, and ensure that it's mitigated before Putin tries to cast a ballot of his own. Thus, the congressional investigations. Of the three, the Senate Intelligence Committee is probably the most credible, and Nunes is doing his level best to make sure that his committee is the least credible. And Schiff is having none of it.

    Yeah, that appears to be the right wing line. Unify behind Donald Trump (the russian puppet) 'cause dissent is treason.

    **** no.

    Mueller knows the answers. Unfortunately, he won't share them with me.

    As samcraig said, if what Schiff says is true, this would be an excellent time to just shut up about it. What Schiff said may be tantalizing, but Mueller's investigation is ongoing, and you don't want anything to interfere with that.

    Nunes has been trying to steer the House committee's results to a predetermined conclusion, but Schiff is smart enough to know that he needs to just let this thing run its natural course.
