Schiff Pressed on Debunked Dossier, Suddenly Doesn’t Want to Talk

Russia conspiracy theorist Adam Schiff, was finally grilled on the debunked Steele dossier, and things didn’t go so well.

Daily Caller reported that Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, refused to commit Sunday to investigating whether the Steele dossier is the product of Russian disinformation, a theory that has gained traction in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.

In an interview with Fox’s Chris Wallace, Schiff largely refused to discuss the dossier, a remarkable shift for the Democrat, who endorsed Steele’s unverified allegations about Trump associates during a public House Intelligence Committee hearing just over two years ago.

Schiff favorably cited dossier author Christopher Steele by name six times during his opening remarks at an Intelligence Committee hearing on March 20, 2017.

In Sunday’s interview, Wallace noted the Mueller report established that much of the Steele dossier was either false or impossible to verify. Wallace asked Schiff whether it was appropriate to investigate whether the dossier was the product of a Russian disinformation campaign.
