Jordan Slams Schiff for Still Alleging Trump-Russia Collusion: 'Did He Not Read' Barr's Letter?
House Judiciary Committee Member Jim Jordan said Rep. Adam Schiff is ignoring the facts while he continues to claim collusion exists between President Trump and Russia.
"Undoubtedly there is collusion... we will continue to investigate the counter-intelligence issues," Schiff (D-Calif.) said.
"Did he not read [A.G.] Bill Barr's letter?" Jordan (R-Ohio) asked incredulously on "America's Newsroom."
Jordan said that in Barr's document on the Mueller report, the special counsel probe found that Russia dangled opportunities to collude multiple times but the Trump team "didn't bite."
Jordan said that even fired FBI Director James Comey questioned the veracity of the Trump-Russia dossier, calling it "salacious and unverified."
He said those involved in paying former British spy Christopher Steele to compile the allegations against Trump "need to be investigated and held accountable." Jordan noted that the dossier, though unproven, was used by the FBI to obtain a surveillance warrant against former Trump aide Carter Page.
"This type of activity is never supposed to happen in this great country," he said.
Jordan reacted incredulously to similar claims on Fox News by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who told Martha MacCallum that the dossier is factual.
"We all know it's National Enquirer garbage. The scary thing is ... they took this document, paid for by the Clinton campaign, dressed it all up and took it to the secret court to get the warrant to go and spy on the Trump campaign."
