House Intel Chair Adam Schiff left millions of Americans scratching their heads Thursday; announcing new legislation that would officially make it “illegal” for anyone to accept “dirt” from “foreign agents.”
“Trump has shown us time and time again, He thinks it’s ok to accept assistance from a foreign power, and given the chance, he’d do it again. I’m introducing legislation to make it crystal clear: Accepting help or “dirt” from a foreign agent is illegal. Period,” posted Schiff on social media.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff issued more subpoenas to Trump campaign insiders last week; demanding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn give testimony to Congressional Democrats.
“As part of our oversight work, the House Intelligence Committee is continuing to examine the deep counterintelligence concerns raised in Special Counsel Mueller’s report, and that requires speaking directly with the fact witnesses,” said Schiff Thursday.
“Schiff noted that both Flynn and Gates cooperated extensively with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, but said that they have so far ‘refused to cooperate fully with Congress,’” reports the Hill.
House Intel Chair Adam Schiff continued his flat-out refusal to accept Robert Mueller’s final Russia report earlier this week; telling his Congressional colleagues the special counsel reached “no conclusion” on whether the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Kremlin.
“Volume one of the report outlines a sweeping and systemic effort by Russia to interfere in the 2016 election for the benefit of Donald Trump,” Schiff declared. “It establishes that the Trump campaign welcomed the Russian interference because it expected to benefit electorally from the information stolen and released through the Russian effort.”
“Nevertheless and contrary to the president’s often-repeated mantra and many misrepresentations of the attorney general, the special counsel reached no conclusion as to whether the Trump campaign’s many Russian contacts constituted collusion since that term is not defined in criminal law,” he added.
