CNN’s Dana Bash grilled Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during a recent interview, exposing his past false statements about former President Donald Trump and Russia. Schiff has long been a target of Republicans who have accused him of misusing information for political purposes and misleading Americans. The recent interview confirms their concerns.
Bash pointed out Schiff’s false claims that there was direct evidence of Trump colluding with Russia in 2016, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report found no evidence of such collusion. Schiff attempted to defend himself by claiming that sharing internal polling information with a Russian agent was evidence of collusion to “most Americans.”
Bash also brought up Schiff’s false statements ahead of the first Trump impeachment trial, when he claimed the committee had not spoken to a whistleblower, which was proven to be false by The Washington Post’s fact-checking team. Schiff tried to explain that he “should have been more clear” in his answer.
Our democracy is at great risk. Because GOP leaders care more about power than anything else.— Adam Schiff (@AdamSchiff) January 26, 2023
And because our economy isn’t working for millions of hard working Americans.

Despite these scandals, Schiff has announced his campaign for California’s Senate seat, claiming that he is “ready to lead as California’s next U.S. Senator” in a fight against Republicans who he claims “care more about power than anything else” and are putting “our democracy at great risk.”
However, Schiff’s Senate bid was hit by an ethics complaint by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), who has asked for an immediate investigation into his use of video footage from the Senate floor in his campaign video, which they claim is a “clear violation of House ethics rules and federal law.”
It is alarming that a man with Schiff’s history of false statements and unethical behavior is running for a seat in the Senate. Republicans have been warning about Schiff for years, and it is time for the American people to wake up and see the truth about this dangerous Democrat. The Senate is no place for someone who has repeatedly misled the American people and abused his power for political gain.
