California Democrat Adam Schiff has been one of the chief critics of President Donald Trump.

Schiff has promoted the Russian collusion conspiracy theory on CNN and MSNBC for nearly two years.

But now Schiff is on the hot seat after Sean Hannity dropped the hammer on him for this massive scandal.

Schiff has used the media platform granted to him by anti-Trump journalists to promote the fake news that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

The California congressman never presents any evidence to back up his claims and Trump-hating cable hosts never challenge him on his conspiracy mongering.

Schiff seized on the revelations that Donald Trump, Jr. and other Trump campaign officials held a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a group of Russians as evidence that they wanted to collude with Russia to rig the election.

A music producer Trump, Jr. knew emailed him and claimed the Russians could offer dirt on Hillary Clinton.

But that was a lie just to get in the room with Trump, Jr.

In reality, the meeting ended up being about adoptions and lobbying the campaign about repealing the Magnitsky Act.

No information on Clinton was offered or changed hands.

In an interview on ABC in February, Schiff pounced on this story stating, “Well it’s certainly tied in the sense that it’s about as clear evidence you could find of intent by the campaign to collude with the Russians, to get useful information from the Russians.”

But now the shoe is on the other foot and Schiff is being forced to answer tough questions.

Top rated Fox News host Sean Hannity brought up an incident where a prankster got through to Schiff on the phone and pretended to be a Russian offering dirt on Trump.

Schiff happily accepted the offer and demonstrated a clear willingness to collude with the Russian in order to undermine America’s democratic institutions.

Hannity said on his show:

“Meanwhile you have an old leaker and liar, Congressman Adam shiftless Schiff joining his friends in the mainstream media — we have a great tape we will play for you in a second. Also weighing in with fake feigned moral outrage of his own.”

“Where is it? We’ve been looking for a long time. We do have evidence of collusion. Russian collusion in plain sight. Alright, let’s look shiftless Schiff. He could easily be talking about himself,” Hannity stated. “Remember when he tried to dig up dirt on President Trump from his own Russian sources? It turns out he was being pranked by a Russian radio personality. He thought he was talking with the Russians. A conspiracy, collusion with the Russians and we actually, Mr. Mueller, we have evidence.”

“Collusion, conspiracy, Russians, tape, proof. Where is the media outrage over the attempt to collude and conspire with Russia? Or is it only a crime if a Republican is trying to dig up political dirt and opposition research on an opponent? This time we have the tape of the whole thing. Imagine if we had a tape of the meeting in Trump Tower,” the top rated Fox News host concluded.

From Hillary Clinton using campaign money to hire a foreign spy who worked with Russians, to Schiff eagerly looking to accept information from a Russian, the real collusion scandal is on the Democrat side.

But the fake news media repeatedly ignores the Democrats conduct in order to use conspiracy theories and innuendo to help wage a silent coup against Donald Trump.
