The View’s Meghan McCain asked Rep. Adam Schiff Thursday why he maintains there is evidence of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia.

Schiff answered with a lot of words, yet provided exactly zero evidence to support his claim.


“I think, at this time, it’s difficult for me and many Americans to differentiate between what is overhype and what isn’t,” McCain said.

“You have said on more than one occasion you have seen ample evidence of the Trump campaign’s Russia collusion. Last March you said you had more than circumstantial evidence of collusion with Russia. What were you referring to and please be specific because if it’s true Americans have a right to know a year later what that is?” (RELATED: ‘The View’ Savages The Clintons: Bill ‘Abusive’ To Women, Hillary A ‘Virus’ To Democrats)

“I certainly said there’s ample evidence of collusion,” he said. “I never used the word treason. Only Steve Bannon used that word. If you look at the facts that are already in the public domain, they’re pretty damning starting with George Papadopoulos.”

“We know that Papadopoulos was approached by the Russians and told back in April of the election year before the Clinton campaign knew that the Russians had stolen and DNC e-mails and we also know they previewed their anonymous dissemination of those e-mails with Papadopoulos back in April. Now it was only weeks later that the Russians made a second approach to the Trump campaign, this time at the highest levels at Trump Tower in a meeting that they previewed by saying that they wanted to offer incriminating information about Hillary.”
