House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of a few lawmakers still insisting that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, despite Robert Mueller's conclusions that he did nothing of the sort.
There is "ample evidence of collusion in plain sight," Schiff still claims. Oh it may not be criminal, but it could very well be "unpatriotic" and "unethical."
His own colleagues are mocking him for his collusion narrative.
During a discussion with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Monday, Fox News host Sean Hannity said the joke is still on Schiff because he has incriminating evidence against him. The congressman knows it too, Hannity said, because he acted rather shifty when he confronted him about it.
"I've got a tape of him colluding with the Russian or somebody believed to be a Russian that had compromising materials or naked pictures of Trump," Hannity revealed. "And you know he was hyperventilating on the phone call didn't know it was a hoax."

Nunes added that Democratic staff followed up on the report, but the media "ignored it."
Hannity is likely referring to the day, almost exactly two years ago now, when Schiff was pranked by a pair of Russian comedians who offered him compromising photos of Trump. Schiff's staff insisted that the congressman knew it was a hoax and promptly called the authorities.
Nunes also chatted with Hannity about the $150 million lawsuit he filed against McClatchy News and their "fake news stories" about a conspiracy to obstruct the Hillary Clinton and Russia investgations.
"So, all of this was done in concert while they were slandering and attacking me and defaming me, attacking Republicans and the whole time they were getting this information from someone," Nunes argued.
Adding to his already busy week, Nunes plans to send eight criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr related to the Russia investigation. In testimony Tuesday morning, Barr revealed that he plans to release the full Mueller report within the week.
