Despite a months-long investigation that hasn't uncovered any evidence of a direct link between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) continues to promote the narrative that President Trump colluded with Russia.

That hasn't sat well with former Congressman Trey Gowdy, who decided to give the California progressive a helpful English lesson. (Conservative Tribune)
 

During “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday night, MacCallum played Gowdy a clip of Schiff claiming there’s clear evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.

“You can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence,” Schiff said Monday on CNN. “Now, there is a difference between seeing evidence of collusion and being able to prove a criminal conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt.”

 

Schiff apparently couldn’t see the obvious contradiction in his comments, so Gowdy gave him a lesson on the word “collusion.”

“Well, collusion is a synonym for conspiracy,” Gowdy said. “So, I hope the questioner followed up and said, ‘OK, Chairman Schiff, you have just said that you have evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the president of the United States and the Russian state. What is that evidence? What is the crime?'”


Gowdy proceeded to mock Schiff, reiterating that the representative desperately hopes that if he repeates his lies enough times, more people will believe him.
