Democrats still refuse to accept that they lost the 2016 election and are still trying to find ways to oust President Donald Trump. One of those ways was to claim that there was some sort of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. However, a top Democrat, Rep Adam Schiff is saying that so far, there is no definitive evidence to support that charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The top Democrat on the House committee investigating Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential race said Sunday that lawmakers still have no “definitive” evidence that the Trump campaign was working with Moscow to defeat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
“I don’t think we can say anything definitively at this point,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We are still at the very early stage of the investigation. The only thing I can say is that it would be irresponsible for us not to get to the bottom of this.”
The first public indication that Russia might have been directly involved emerged in late summer with the release of hacked emails related to the Clinton campaign and from the Democratic National Committee.
The U.S. intelligence community concluded several months ago that Russia meddled in the campaign, which saw Trump upset the favored Clinton. The FBI as well as the House and Senate intelligence committees are investigating the matter, which includes the firing of retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as Trump’s national security adviser for not disclosing talks with at least one Russian official.
