Liberals will produce their own lies, which will be bad news for them. The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said he fears the panel's Russia investigation could end up producing two separate, partisan reports offering contradictory conclusions to Americans. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said he will work with other committee members "to do everything we can to prevent two separate reports" on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
"The ideal would be a comprehensive report with bipartisan support," Schiff said in a phone interview from California with USA TODAY. However, he noted that past investigations by congressional committees have often resulted in separate findings by Republicans and Democrats. "It may still have to happen with us," Schiff said. "If it does, then Americans will have to read both reports and decide which one to believe. And that is far less than ideal."
Schiff said the committee still has a long way to go in its Russia investigation and he is hopeful that it can avoid a partisan split. Asked whether he thinks the committee has sufficient resources for its investigation, Schiff replied: "No, I don't." Schiff said those resources would have been greater if the House and Senate Intelligence committees had agreed to a joint investigation, combining their staff and funds. Republican leaders in the House and Senate would not agree to a joint probe, he said.
Schiff has failed to say that Democrats don't
want to truth and therefore don't want to work with Republicans.
