Wednesday on CNN, inveterate liar Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said even though many claims in the Steele dossier, compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, have been discredited, that does not change “Donald Trump’s corrupt behavior.”
CNN propagandist Wolf Blitzer pointed out that “a series of investigations and lawsuits have discredited many of the infamous so-called Trump dossier central allegations, and exposed the unreliability of that so-called dossier’s sources. Do you worry, congressman, that your credibility, other Democrats’ credibility, could be hurt by that? And that it potentially could impact how some see this current investigation?”
Schiff said, “No. People that have been following the investigation understand the very limited role that the Steele dossier played. And also understand that while we may now know that one of his primary sources was lying to him, it doesn’t change Donald Trump’s corrupt behavior in 2016.”
He continued his spin: “It doesn’t change the fact that the president’s son was secretly meeting in Trump Tower with the Russian delegation to get dirt on Hillary Clinton or that others in the Trump orbit were also seeking the gain of the Russian hack of the Democratic Party. The Steele dossier is a nice talking point for kind of right-wing pundits, but it’s a distraction from what we did learn. What we did learn was very damning of the former president, of the Russians, and his campaign.”
No, it wasn’t. The entire Russian collusion conspiracy theory has been debunked. There is no evidence anywhere of Russian influence in the election, or that anyone in the “Trump orbit” sought it. The only think damning was the evidence that the whole Russian collusion accusation was nothing more than a coordinated Democrat smear.
