Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of engaging in “effort to sidetrack from the reality that under his watch,” not that 80,000 lives have actually been lost in the United States.
Mitchell asked, “I also desire to ask you about President Obama and now in a separate circumstances the acting DNI Richard Grenell pursues Democrats and the Obama scenario, the president implicating former President Obama of the biggest criminal offense ever. What’s going on here? There’s likewise a Wall Street Journal editorial against you also, versus the Adam Schiff transcripts as they put it.”
Schiff said, “What’s going on is this is the president’s effort to sidetrack from the reality that under his watch, we have actually now lost 80,000 American lives and our economy remains in the worse shape it’s been considering that the great anxiety. This is what this is about. They desire to distract attention. They desire to create some kind of counter-narrative that, no, it was in fact Obama committing criminal activities, not Donald Trump. It was all of the Obama administration figures. It was Adam Schiff. Don’t take notice of Americans passing away right now. Don’t take note of Americans out of work right now, however rather let’s concentrate on this counter-narrative that it was Hillary that needs to have colluded, it was Obama who should have been dedicating dishonest acts rather of Donald Trump. However the American people translucent this. They’re focused right now on making sure they can remain healthy, they can put bread on the table. That’s their concern, even if it isn’t the president’s.”
