James Freeman’s article does something that MSNBC and CNN haven’t done. Specifically, Mr. Freeman questioned the integrity of Mr. Schiff’s alleged information. I use the word alleged advisedly. Frequently, Mr. Schiff has hinted that he’s seen information that proves that there’s been collusion between President Trump’s team and Russia. Never has he provided that proof.

Appearing on Meet the Press Daily, Schiff “was asked by Chuck Todd” “whether or not he only has a circumstantial case.” Schiff replied “Actually no, Chuck. I can tell you that the case is more than that and I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”

Freeman later notes that “nearly nine months later, he’s still going on talk shows and making accusations. He’s still declining to back them up. And he’s still finding friendly news organizations to broadcast his claims, even though by this time a fact-free Schiff accusation of collusion with Russians can hardly be considered news.” When Jake Tapper asked for evidence, Schiff dodged until Tapper asked him point blank:

TAPPER: Do you know of any instance where the Russians said, we’re going to do it this way, we’re going to do it through WikiLeaks, we’re going to do it through DCLeaks, this is how we’re going to get this information out there?
SCHIFF: I can’t comment. That’s an issue that we have been investigating. And I don’t want to comment at this point or not what the state of that evidence is.

That’s tough. Schiff’s credibility is sinking fast. We should nickname him ‘The Gossip Guy’ because he’s more full of gossip than actual verifiable information. Honestly, I don’t trust Schiff. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time as far as I’m concerned. This article explains why I don’t trust him.
