Transcripts Show Obama Officials Admitting Time After Time They Had No Evidence Of Russia Collusion

Transcripts of the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe show Obama officials testifying time and again that they had no evidence of collusion with the campaign of President Trump in 2016.

Regardless of this knowledge, Chairman Adam Schiff repeatedly stated through friendly media outlets that there was “direct evidence” of collusion.

The transcripts were released Thursday evening after Schiff was pressured by Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who advised that if the Democrat was not “willing” to release them to congressional members, he would do it himself.

Repeatedly Stated No Evidence

The House intel transcripts show a who’s who of Obama-era officials telling the committee that they had found no evidence of Russia collusion.

  • Former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice was asked whether she had evidence of collusion: “I don’t recall intel or evidence to that effect.”
  • Former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said, “I saw indications of potential coordination, but I did not see, you know, the specific evidence of the actions of the Trump campaign.”
  • Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the conspiracy: Do “not recall that being briefed up to me,” and “I can’t say that it existed or not.”
  • Former campaign Chair for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta: “I have no specific facts or information relating to conversations that may have been had between people from the Trump campaign and either Assange or representatives of the Russian Government, other than
    what I’ve read in the paper.”

Schiff Not the Only Liar

That last one from former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is pretty intriguing. He, like Schiff, went on friendly leftist television and stated the exact opposite of what he testified to.

Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire notes that Clapper was paid by fake news site CNN to opine on matters involving Russia collusion, and apparently lied to their viewers.

“What was the Trump campaign (sic) doing the same time was essentially aiding and abetting the Russians,” he said.

Schiff Lied, Collusion Died

Schiff, in his role as the House Intel Chair, presented lies to the American people as if he had classified information that pointed to direct collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

“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,” Schiff said during a CBS interview in March of 2019.

Schiff would also claim that he had “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion.

He lied. The transcripts prove it. And nobody who represents an intelligence committee should be allowed to present false information and continue working in such capacity going forward.

  • so, the big question now is, how much time in prison should he get for trying to bring down the man? or should old shiffty be hung for treasonous activities to the u.s., i say the latter should do it.

  • The transcripts should be the key that locks the cell door at the penitentiary for these corrupt liars for DECADES!...

  • That is the actual transcript of former AG Lynch. What was asked and how she answered. It CLEARLY shows how this article took her answers out of context. If you are too stupid or ignorant or cowardly to see that, that's on you.

  • This is another site that piss..s me off. All the goods on the most corrupt president to ever hold the position. All the proof mentioned like in this article. Yet him and the elusive (big foot) hillary still on the dole. Tracks and sightings yet never caught. Hire 48 hrs or cold case files. Come on, there is something strange.

  • He should be hung and left to rot from the tree as a warning to any democRats wanting to take his place.

  • They are doing the very thing they tried to impeach Trump with. They plan to get Biden elected with Michele Obama as Vice President then have Biden step down saying that his health is the reason and Michele run Our country. That’s fixing the election too. Vote for Trump, at least His top priority is the American People. The Democrats are too busy trying to bring Trump down to do the jobs they are getting paid to do.

  • I hear Ivanka Trump was pretty mad at her husband Jared, when she found out that he, Don Jr., and Paul Manafort met with that stripper from Russia, Natalia Veselnitskaya to have a a orgy party at Trump Tower, back in 2016. Shame on them, I guess she wasn't fooled by their story of trying to get dirt on her father's opponent Hillary Clinton.

  • Well we waisted $40M dollars and three years doing the only two things that liberals know how to do, legislate and spend the country into a hole that our grandchildren and their children will never get out of.
