CNN Calls Out Dem Rep for Repeatedly Making False Claims About Collusion

"If that's true that Democrats have seen that evidence, should they not release that evidence to back up that allegation ...?"

CNN’s Jim Sciutto called out Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) for Democrats’ repeated false claims that evidence of collusion exists between President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia during an interview on Monday.

Sciutto asked Bass whether she thought Democrats unfairly claimed that Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russia without evidence sufficient to support their claim.

“No, I don’t believe that we did at all, and, you know, this to me is a very important step that the report is done. But, now we need to see the report,” Bass said. “What we have seen is a four-page memo from the attorney general, but we need to see all of the report, and we need to see the underlying evidence. So, to me, this is an important milestone, but we still have a long way to go.”

Sciutto pointed out that Mueller was very clear about the question of collusion and that hours before Attorney General William Barr’s memo was released, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was saying that he had seen significant evidence of collusion.

“If that’s true, that Democrats have seen that evidence, should they not release that evidence to back up that allegation, despite what the special counsel has now found?” Sciutto asked Bass.

“Well, first of all, Chairman Schiff is the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and you know a lot of what happens in that committee happens in a classified setting. So, I certainly can not speak to that,” Bass responded.

Sciutto interjected and asked Bass that if Democrats are claiming there’s evidence of collusion, isn’t it only fair for them to release that evidence to the public.

“I think the public should [see that evidence], and we will see when that happens. But we do need to see the full report,” Bass said.
