Rep Schiff Says Idea of Spy in Trump Campaign ‘nonsense’

The top Democrat with the House Intelligence Committee accused President Trump of spreading “false information” about a spy in the Trump campaign.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host Chuck Todd and called the allegations “nonsense.”

The Washington Examiner reports:

“This claim by the president, this suggestion by [Trump lawyer Rudy] Giuliani is that there is a political spy embedded in the Trump campaign is nonsense,” Schiff said. “And you hear it in the same terms that Trump often speaks, which is ‘people are saying’ or ‘I’m hearing’ or ‘we’re being told’. That’s another way of saying this is patently untrue, but we would like to spread it anyway. And it’s singularly destructive of our institutions, but that’s the point.”

Last week, President Trump Tweeted his thoughts about the revelation of an FBI spy in his campaign.

 

President Trump also Tweeted that after two years of investigations, there’s no evidence of collusion or obstruction with his campaign and Russian officials.

The Deep State got caught spying on the Trump campaign and Schiff is lying on national TV to cover their tracks.
