Adam Schiff just poured cold water on Trump and his lawyer’s latest gambit

Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) smells something fishy.


The constantly morphing stories being issued by the Trump administration regarding the Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016 between Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with close Kremlin ties, and members of the president’s campaign team, including his oldest son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his campaign manager Paul Manafort, among others, just don’t add up.

Representative Schiff expressed his concerns about the believability of the perpetually shifting rationales in a response to an ABC News tweet with a clip of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani prevaricating about the administration’s consistent failure to get their story straight and using it as an excuse to keep the president from speaking to Special Counsel Robert Muelle’s team of investigators.

Oh, that pesky unreliable recollection! Does Trump have the same memory issues that prevented Jeff Sessions from recalling campaign members’ meetings with Russian agents  when he testified under oath that “I did not, and I’m not aware of anyone else that did, and I don’t believe it happened.”

No wonder Representative Schiff is questioning the credulity of the entire administration at this point.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to evade responsibility for his lies which are still averaging 6.5 false or misleading statements per day and accelerating as of last month according to the latest tally in The Washington Post. 

The only positive implication of the parade of new revelations exposing the administration’s former falsehoods is that they are a harbinger of imminent action from the special counsel’s office, as Trump’s legal team tries to clean things up in preparation for their defense of concrete allegations and possible indictments in the days and weeks ahead.
