According to a Fox News story about Intelligence Committee Chairman California Democrat Representative Adam Schiff, “Schiff is in panic mode,” over the pending release of the committee’s Russian collusion investigation.
The story reports the Committee transcripts are ready for public release following a review by intelligence officials in the Executive Branch and based on sources in the Trump administration, there is “no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.”
The transcripts put Schiff in a difficult position because he previously said on CBS News, “I think there is direct evidence in the emails from the Russians through their intermediary offering dirt on Hillary Clinton….”
Because Schiff’s statements are conflicting with the evidence, an unnamed administration official told Fox News the committee chairman “… is in panic mode.”
If Schiff refuses to release the transcripts, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is set to release them to be faithful to a previous vote by the Intelligence Committee for the transcripts to be released to the public.
The vote to release the transcripts was unanimous.
Critics of Schiff are pouncing on the news.
Good morning to everyone except Adam Schiff who is in "panic mode" today!

Fox News also reported:
“The transcripts show a total lack of evidence, despite Schiff personally going out saying he had more than circumstantial evidence that there was collusion,” one source involved in House Russia investigations told Fox News.
Former Fox Business Network host Trish Regan expressed concern over Schiff holding on to the transcripts and demanded transparency.
#AdamSchiff said to be blocking House Intelligence Comm transcripts from the whole #Russia gate ordeal. With everything that these political animals put this country through (…and all for nothing) — Americans DESERVE to know what really was going on! TRUTH, TRANSPARENCY matter

John Solomon of “Just the News” appeared on the Fox Business Network to comment on Schiff and the committee transcripts.
In typical fashion, Schiff appeared on MSNBC to change the debate from mounting concerns over him sitting on the transcripts to blaming President Trump for the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S.
Ironically, Schiff blamed President Trump for trying to change the debate.
The virus didn’t magically go away as Trump promised, so he:
Blames Democrats, governors, and the press.
Blames his own Intelligence Community and even Dr. Fauci.
And he tells us he will accept no responsibility as tens of thousands die.
Trump is the President of victimhood. pic.twitter.com/mplUKm2uuU

Schiff’s record from his leading role in the fake Russia collusion narrative and his willingness to take the lead over the President Trump impeachment scam shows he is a political hack that will do anything to undermine President Trump.
