As Schiff told MSNBC, “There’s overwhelming evidence of Russian involvement in these hacks and by denying it he has essentially become a propaganda piece for Kremlin.”

Donald Trump will do anything at this point to distract the public from the now undeniable fact that he was put into the White House not by the American voters (who went with Hillary Clinton) but by Vladimir Putin. As Schiff says, Trump’s refusal to face facts is “deeply disturbing.”

Schiff is right to call for investigations in both House and Senate. As has pointed out, if allowed to take office what we will be left with in our Oval Office is a man who is nothing more than a propaganda piece for the Kremlin.
