Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Democrats have a "dug a hole" for themselves with their years of claims of Trump-Russia collusion and now don't know what to do after Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not confirm their suspicions. 

He said Mueller's report does not have to be released, according to Justice Department policies, and Attorney General William Barr is going "above and beyond" by promising to release a redacted version to Congress.

Spicer blasted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for continuing to claim collusion occurred "in plain sight." He said if that were true, Mueller would have come to a very different conclusion. 



"2,800 subpoenas, 500 witnesses and yet [Mueller] couldn't find it with this team of top-notch investigators and FBI agents. But Adam Schiff sure can find it, he just can't tell you where it is but he knows it exists," he said. 

President Trump tweeted Monday morning about the "collusion delusion" and "crazed Democrats."

Spicer said the media and Democrats have been attacking Trump for undermining core American institutions and law enforcement, yet now they are "attacking the process" because the conclusions were not what they wanted. 

House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee called on Schiff last week to resign from his leadership position on the panel.
