Bongino Calls Schiff A ‘Carnival Barker’ For Collusion Comments

Phillip Stucky Contributor

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino called Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff a “carnival barker” Monday for his comments regarding Russian collusion with President Donald Trump.

“You understand this guy is making this up,” Bongino asserted about Schiff.

He continued:

He has got nothing. He is a carnival barker. He has nothing. Here is why he is doing this now. There is a reason. The Michael Cohen hearing was devastating for them. He was their star witnesses dreaded air quotes there. What did he do? He went up to the hill and he said the key component of their entire case that Michael Cohen was in Prague to coordinate this whole conspiracy with the Russians. Cohen said it wasn’t true.

Bongino’s comments come after Schiff hit the media circuit Sunday asserting that there was “direct evidence” of collusion between Russian leadership and the Trump administration.

“I think there is direct evidence in the emails from the Russians through their intermediary offering dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of what is described in writing as the Russian government effort to help elect Donald Trump,” The chair of the House Select Committee on Intelligence asserted on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”(Related: Adam Schiff’s Latest Hire Has Trump In Uproar)

Cohen was a former lawyer in the Trump White House and has recently participated in both open and closed committee hearings in which he discussed his knowledge of the inner-workings of the Trump administration.
