Schiff: GOP’s Goal Is to Set a Narrative with the FISA Abuse Memo the FBI’s Corrupt to Help Trump
SCHIFF: "The goal is to put out a document that will set a narrative that helps the President. And that narrative is, 'The F.B.I. is corrupt, what they’re doing is corrupt, the whole investigation is corrupt, Bob Mueller is corrupt. You should bring an end to this investigation.' And that is, I think, singly destructive. It only encourages the White House to engage in conduct that could bring about a constitutional crisis. And I think you began this segment at the right point, and that is showing the Chairman’s ill-fated trip to the White House to present them evidence of a conspiracy of unmasking in the Obama Administration and we later learned that was information he had actually gotten from the White House. But what we’re seeing today is a continuation of that same kind of stratagem in concert with the White House that obviously doesn’t tell us anything about what the Russians did or anything about what the Trump campaign did, but isn’t designed to. It’s designed to distract and to undermine the Special Counsel."
