Do Democrats Fear Their Russia Conspiracy Will Be Exposed as a Fraud?

Written by Joe Scudder

The Democrats are blocking a key suspect in their Russia conspiracy from testifying before the House intelligence oversight panel.

You would think that Democrats would be overjoyed to be able to investigate the Vast Right-Wing Russia Conspiracy that stole the election from Hillary Clinton. But, curiously, they are blocking some witnesses from giving testimony. In fact, they are preventing one of the chief villains in their Russia Conspiracy from talking to the House panel investigating the issue.

The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe.

Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.

“He’s the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story,” said one Capitol Hill official.

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the committee’s Democratic leader, did not respond to emails seeking comment on the blocked testimony.

Schiff has asserted in the past that evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign is “more than circumstantial,” contrary to other intelligence and congressional oversight members who have said there is no evidence.

On Sunday, Schiff appeared to back off his earlier comments somewhat. Pressed on ABC News to explain the nature of the evidence of collusion, the lawmaker said: “Well, I think there is evidence. I can’t go into the particulars of our closed investigation. But I also think there is also evidence of obstruction. But in both cases, I would say, whether there is some evidence doesn’t mean there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Other Leftist anti-Trump Democrats are admitting the Russia conspiracy theory is a distraction.
