Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Rep. Trey Gowdy blasted Rep. Adam Schiff for his role in prolonging the Mueller probe into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign leading up to the 2016 presidential election on Carlson’s show, Wednesday night.
“Adam Schiff says he has evidence of collusion between the Russians and President Trump. He said it over a year ago, he has presented to absolutely no one, there’s no accountability for it, they want this investigation to drag on as long as it possibly can because it’s going to affect the midterms and they will get the gavels in their hand,” Gowdy stated.
“Regardless of whether you are Republican or Democrat, its just higher expectations and demand more from your elected officials, it’s not just about winning, it’s also about governing in a responsible way that’s worthy of people’s respect,” he continued.
“Adam Schiff accused me of working for Putin, he’s an irresponsible buffoon,” Carlson chimed in.
“Try working with him,” Gowdy responded.
“I can’t even imagine, our empathy goes out to you,” Carlson concluded.
Gowdy went after Schiff last weekend as well, saying that if he had any evidence of collusion between the president and Russia, he would’ve already leaked it. (RELATED: Gowdy: If Collusion Evidence Existed, Adam Schiff Would Have Leaked It)
Schiff has continued to say he has seen evidence of it, but has yet to divulge anything when pressed on the matter.
