He just can’t get enough of Trump.
According to Breitbart News, Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed on the Senate floor that Russia had carried out a propaganda “coup” by manipulating President Donald Trump.
Drawing selectively from the president’s past statements, Schiff claimed that Trump believed Russia’s claims that Ukraine had interfered with the 2016 presidential election, ignoring U.S. intelligence agencies’ assessments.
Schiff portrayed Trump as a puppet being controlled by Russia: “It’s not just a propaganda coup, it’s not just the undermining of our agencies. It’s also that the buy-in to that propaganda meant that Ukraine wasn’t going to get money to fight the Russians. I mean, that’s one hell of a Russian intelligence coup. … Has there ever been such a coup? I would submit to you that in the entire length of the Cold War, the Soviet Union had no such success.” You can read the full article here.
