California Democrat Adam Schiff has been one of the ringleaders in the “collusion with Russia” fake news.
That led him to cross paths with Trey Gowdy.
And it was a decision he instantly regretted.
Recently, White House advisor – and Trump son-in-law – Jared Kushner testified behind closed doors with the House Intelligence Committee.
He was brought in after reports had surfaced that he attended a meeting set up by a Russian lawyer who promised information which proved illegal collusion between the Clinton campaign and the Kremlin.
It became apparent minutes into the meeting that the real purpose was to lobby about ending the Magnitsky Act and a ban on Russian adoptions.
Kushner quickly left the meeting, but Democrats latched on to the gathering as “evidence” of collusion.
When Kushner appeared before the House Intelligence Committee he repeated his story and then made a public statement declaring he did not collude with Russia.
Trey Gowdy said Kushner’s testimony provided no new information nor revealed anything that was previously unknown.
California Democrat Adam Schiff was furious that his push to prove a Russia collusion quickly came up empty and lashed out at Trey Gowdy about his conduct during the closed door session.
He accused Gowdy of acting like Kushner’s attorney.
“Republican Trey Gowdy acted behind closed doors like a lawyer for President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, during questioning Tuesday by the House Intelligence Committee, said the top Democrat on the panel.
“Mr. Gowdy took the role as a second attorney for Mr. Kushner,” Adam Schiff of California told reporters.”
Gowdy fired back and blasted Schiff for using the Russia story to boost a possible run for Senate and how Kushner’s testimony ruined Schiff’s fake news narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Rep. Trey Gowdy defended himself Wednesday against accusations that he acted as an extra lawyer for Jared Kushner when the White House senior adviser privately interviewed with the House Intelligence Committee in its Russia probe.
Gowdy, R-S.C., suggested that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member of the committee who leveled the accusations, is using the Russia investigation to boost his own political profile.
“Adam’s frustration [was] that Jared Kushner did not tell him what he wanted to hear from a political ambition standpoint,” Gowdy said on CNN. “This investigation has been very good for the Adam Schiff for Senate campaign. But yesterday was not good for him.”
Gowdy’s criticism of Schiff being a publicity hound matched that of Donald Trump.
Trump ripped Schiff on Twitter for the amount of time he’s spent on television pushing the Russian collusion hoax.
Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into "Russia," spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!

Trump’s tweet was correct.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) has done 123 national television interviews totaling more than 14 hours of air time since January, according to a tracking report provided to the White House.
The report comes on the heels of President Donald Trump attacking Schiff on Monday for his frequent TV appearances. The vast majority of them have been on cable networks CNN and MSNBC, although Schiff has also done interviews on Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, Comedy Central, and HBO.”
The media has tried to portray Schiff as a nonpartisan fact finder.
But the truth is he is an ambitious partisan who latched onto a conspiracy theory in order to build a profile to run for higher office.
