  • Wait !!! When Hillary did her thing with foreign groups for fund raising for her presidential bid it was ok ?? Come on

  • As a concerned American of Latino ancestry, I am sick and tired of the partisan games! Representative Schiff and Speaker Pelosi please work on meaningful legislation (Daca, Healthcare,etc,etc,etc…)!

  • IMO – the GOP blabbering is to ensure the Mueller report does not get to the hands of Congress – which will probably identify GOPs’ participation in accepting dark monies from hostile countries. The GOPs current narrative is to deflect and confuse similar to the actions of their idol full of lies. Anyone with integrity – GOPs want to smear & create false narrative yet silent when their own kind who acts unjustly, lie, corrupt etc. it’s time to really get them out on their seats through our vote.

  • As the aiding and abetting right continues (under orders from trump/putin?) to run interference against US Intelligence, National Security, Separation of Powers and Due Process of Law by not only calling for Schiff's resignation, but withholding the "actual" Mueller report, it is becoming obvious by the minute that the US is in the throes of a "hostile takeover" of Democracy in America which will most certainly result in negation of the free press, suspension of habeus corpus, voter suppression, a one party system, an autocratic form of government, martial law and establishment of a police state. It is rapidly becoming more than apparent that "WE the People" are facing the biggest threat to OUR Democracy, OUR Democratic for of Government and OUR Rule of Law if this continues much further. The question is, what are WE going to do about it? 'When they came for the disabled, I didn't do anything because I was not disabled. When they came for the minorities, I didn't do anything because I was not a minority. When they came for the immigrants I didn't do anything because I was not an immigrant.' Again, what are WE going to do about it.

  • The witch on "education " secretary? is working wit trump giving him? a gtrat contribution ! in destroying! the EDUCATION! in america!——-GOP AND TRUMP! ARE WORKING ! in a project! and they are SUBSIDING! TO DESTRUCT AMERICA!! THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING AS HARD AR THEY CAN!!!! DESTROYING ALL ON WHAT IS GOOD! IN AMERICA!

  • Faith in the United States Government has been compromised by appointments of Barr and Kavanaugh, and Trump's secret meetings with Putin.

  • DEMOCRATS ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN ISIS, TERRORISTS, PEDOPHILES (at least when they arent murdering babies), RAPISTS, DRUG CARTELS! THEY ARE OFFICIALLY THE ENEMY OF ALL THAT IS GOOD!

  • America's moral leadership is now beyond redemption and frankly I think it's a farce to believe the American democratic experiment continues. We are left with a collection of old bitter white men, prepared to hang on to power at whatever cost.

  • Is there no consequence for blatant lying anymore?? This is ridiculous – and embarrassing to the whole country. He needs to go – NOW

  • Did anyone notice how those Republicans were uncomfortably squirming like they needed to have a bowel movement as Schiff rejoined their ridiculous letter?

  • RESIGN for what??? So dumn. There is no reason to. Mr. SCHIFF DO NOT BACK DOWN. Why republicans fear full report???? Well they fear of the FACTS . They hide the liesss. So sad that republicans cannot handle full release of Muller Report. WHY FEAR FACTS??? MR. SCHIFF YOU ARE A HERO. DO NOT BACK DOWN. WE NEED TRANSPARENCY!!! Time to vote them out.

  • Thank you Rep Adam Schiff for standing up for America. You are an American hero. Every Republican needs to resign their post. They are shameful traitors of the United States of America.

  • This speech reminds me of Mark Antony's speech after Julius Caesar was murdered. Remember 'Brutus is an honorable man'

  • Senator Conway has no basis for spouting condescending accusations at Schiff as to constitutional respinsibility. The GOP is behaving like Trump lackeys, missing no opportunity to circumvent the Constitution.

  • You report the entire letter demanding Mr. Schiff's resignation but you needed to air the entire response by Mr. Schiff which will become legendary. Shame on you.

  • These Republican corrupt cowards don't fool or intimidate most Americans with their bs, Certainly not Schiff. Barr worked to get the AG job by sending Trump a 19 page paper which basically said, hire me and I won't fail you like Sessions did. I will protect you. Release the full Mueller report.

  • republican leaders all sold their souls. They love to be remembered in history as such. Don't they know they are all on videos that can be searched and seen by people many many years even century later?

  • Adam Schiff…a true America Hero!
    Everything he said was spot on and he called out that fact the GOP do think all that dirt is OK! WH GOP are a bunch corrupt sold out hacks who HAVE sold out America! None of Trumps lying, hiding and sabotaging truth is OK…..NONE OF IT IS OK.!!!

  • Adam Schiff is a snake and a liar and responsible for destroying the lives of many innocent and wasting taxpayers money. He needs to be held accountable

  • What's next? Adam Schiff going to claim some Russian leprechaun riding a unicorn met with President Trump in the city of Atlantis?

  • Many Republicans are in serious trouble with♥️🙏 Our Darling, Beloved, Omnipotent, SACRED HEAVENLY FATHER 🥀🙏 ❗️❗️❗️

  • For one day in your life Fullof Schiff, don't be an A-hole and RESIGN.
    #Oust the Louse, Oust the Louse, Oust the Louse..

  • German election system – the best in the world (ask the UN): paper and pencil, the votes are counted under public supervision in every single election place and then the results are transmitted to a center counter. Because its done in all the places in parallel it lasts as long as 2 hours to have a result. That result is then again in public verified and recounted. Period. No Problems, no hacking, no Russians.

  • SEN. ADAM SCHIFF, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRIOTISM AND PROTECTING AMERICA'S DEMOCRACY !

    GOD BLESS YOU AND MORE POWER TO YOU !

    GOD BLESS AMERICA !

  • AMERICA, AMERICA, AMERICA.

    DON'T REPEAT THE SAME MISTAKE ELECTING A SHAMELESS SOCIOPATH PATHOLOGICAL LIAR CON MAN

    AND HIS UNPATRIOTIC REPUBLICAN CROONIES AND MINIONS THIS 2020 !

    WE CANNOT LET THESE TRAITORS CONTINUE SUBVERTING AMERICA'S CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW !

    COUNTRY FIRST – SAVE AMERICA !

  • California almost got rid of Nunes. Nunes unfortunately won with a 5.4% margin. Yuck! So close! What was that district thinking?!

  • Seriously, based on a 4 page summary of someone who obviously were on Trumps side, and used to bury evidence for Bush, that partly exonerate Trump they are acting all high and mighty. And trying to clean house from all the people they see as a threat, people who reported the news, politicians who told americans that this is not ok what is going on.
    Even if no one goes to jail of these people, history will finally show how corrupt and partisan republicans are.

  • Schiff has not mentioned 1 thing that would indicate Trump and Putin colluded to get Trump elected. But there was a collusion of Obama, Clinton, the top Dems and the MSM (except for Fox) and the NSA, CIA and FBI to get Trump prosecuted as a traitor of the US, treason being punishable with a death sentence. So they tried to have him killed by execution? Seems that way.

  • CNN AND MSNBC only gets viewers because hospitals and government agencies including schools forced people to watch it other than that if they had a choice that have next to zero Watchers… NO WONDER WHY MY WIFE DONT WATCH MSNBC ANY MORE,

  • It really is amazing how far the Republicans will go to lie and spin all this. Amazing all the "see, nothing happened" comments. Let's look at the facts of the investigation:

    199 Criminal charges

    37 indictments

    7 Guilty pleas (from Trump's closest advisers)

    5 Sentenced to prison

    1 facing trial (another of Trump's closest)

    26 Russians charged

    Does that sound like a 'witch hunt hoax" to you?

  • The level of corruption in this country is downright disturbing. I’m glad that Schiff stood his ground for his country rather than selling out for a few Russian rubles.

  • Schiff should have told the Republican whining about responding that he already made his statement. He signed the letter with the other Republicans demanding Schiff's resignation because he's investigating Trump's involvement with Russians. Schiff was dead-on correct with everything he said.

  • I think it's okay for a man who's lost all credibility and has demonstrated zero integrity to resign; but you, Schiff, apparently don't think it's okay.

  • 4:06 at what point does it become a self parody to attempt to fact check Trump? "We have many paper-backups just in case there is a problem" . No, there are still 5 states that do not.

    "We have tremendous systems in place" . This is not a serious statement that can be fact checked. There's no substance, it's just another Trump word salad with allot of useless superlatives thrown in.

  • The entire Republican party is guilty of treason! These people would rather side with a Thug than do what is right for the country.

  • Schiff is guilty of pushing a cold war conspiracy theory for over two years. Now instead of admitting defeat he moves the goal posts and continues to distract the voters from real issues: Medicare for all wealth inequality, prison reform, . . .

  • Hey 9 republicans are un- American and that not ok ! Hey republicans you need to work for the American people not for Russia !

  • comical, i hope they spend the next two years chasing their tails searching for collusion, just like the last two… country will be better off.

  • In going off memory here, so the footnote number might be off but I think it was 52. In chapter one of the notes in Malcolm Naunce’s book, ”The Plot to Destroy Democracy” he references the Russian Manual of Information Warfare. I think this explains why the Russians didn't have a phone call on the daily type coordination with Republicans. The Republicans are too stupid and would mess it up because Nuance is using a bit of intentional wording here. The Republicans are trying to do what Putin does, and they aren't as good as Putin is at it. Actually, they are terrible at it. It's a joke. If you read it, I linked the manual he references, you'll see it too.

  • listening to the Dems it's as if the report said there is evidence of collusion, Oh, but it said there's NO evidence. What part of no evidence don't you get, no evidence no evidence no evidence no evidence.
    Cry babies, sore losers – you lost, the report is in – you lost, you lost the 16 election and cried foul. You lost this one, what are you doing ? Crying

  • You lie to your bosses, you lie to your customers, half your coworkers publicly demand you resign. Would YOU get to keep YOUR job? :-/

  • It is obvious the republicans on the panel are taking direction from trump. Their positions are corrupted by taking direction from trump they are separate branch of government

  • THE ONE WHO SHOULD RESIGN IS CONWAY: IT IS OBVIOUS THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE THE PEOPLE & OUR COUNTRY IN MIND. ONLY A PERSONAL GRAB WOULD EXPLAIN HIS OPINIONS AND DESIRES. CONWAY'S PRESENTATION REVEALS A PERSONAL DESIRE FOR GAIN NOT THE NEEDS OF OUR PEOPLE OR OUR COUNTRY.– THAT IS NOT OKAY!.

  • Schiff belongs in jail. He keeps lying about the President. There is one presidential candidate who “colluded” with Russia: Hillary. Hillary paid millions for a fake Russian dossier. Hillary tried to use the fake dossier to secure FISA warrants to “investigate” a presidential candidate. This was an old fashioned coup attempt and it failed. In the old days, traitors like Schiff and Hitlery would be thrown in jail for sedition.

  • WOW! Just when you think republicans have hit rock bottom they managed to go a little deeper.

    MALEA – Make America Less Embarrassing Again

  • Schiff is obsessed with hatred and jealousy on Trump. Schiff cannot believe that a president can be elected without the approval of media and political establishments.

  • Republican Congress are stooges for Trump and worse, stooges for the Russian government.

    Please continue the great work Congressman Schiff!!!

  • P.F.C. Mueller saved Millions of Deranged Democrats lives by finding the truth of innocence of The Duly Elected President, and putting an ended a
    traitorous attempted coup, which would have started a WAR ON Democrats.

  • Schiff should resign: he not only has disrespected our USA president (Trump) but has disrespected "We the people" that chose Trump as our President 2016!

  • Conway basically called Schiff a liar – an accusation that is patently false. Instead of addressing tbe GOPs failure to confront and take action on Russian election meddling. He stepped on a rake.

  • Folks….for the Last 2 YEARS….the GOP led Committee looked Away from the Trump admin. and did Nothing but waste time and Our tax payer $$$ chasing Hillarys e-mails….and found NADA….NOW Schiff and the Dems. have put an ANKLE BRACELET on Trump !!

  • PUBLIC CLOWN , HOW DO THESE KNUCKLEHEADS ( SCHIFF AND HIS CLAN ) EVEN BE CONSIDERED AS A SERIOUS OFFICIALS"

  • This mans head looks like an orange on a toothpick. What is with these liberal beta-males??? All the excess estrogen coursing through his veins affects his ability to formulate rational thoughts. The only proven collusion with Russia is the formulation of this nonsensical investigation.

    I can’t wait for the shoe to be on the other foot
