(CBrief) – Democrat California Rep. Adam Schiff is still facing blowback after he spent years pushing false and uncorroborated Trump-Russia collusion theories.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently reminded everyone about Schiff pushing the “elaborate and intentional” Russia hoax that alleged that President Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 presidential election.
Carlson said that Schiff should resign, especially given he claimed he had seen evidence proving Trump colluded with Russia.
“Schiff knew there was nothing substantial at the core of the Russian collusion story. At the very center, it was hollow, it was a sham. But Schiff never suggested this in public. Instead, he did the opposite. He spent years on television telling you it was totally real, shut up. Every single time was a lie. If you were following this closely at the time, you might have suspected this. Schiff never produced any of this so-called evidence. He just asserted its existence,” Carlson said.
“Adam Schiff is a sociopath. He will do or say anything to achieve power. He is unfit to hold office. He should resign. At the time, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and every single committee,” Carlson said. “They had the power to expose this hoax and to shut it down. But they did not.”
