#IStandWithAdamSchiff because he has a spine and tells the truth. And when his opponents can't cite factual evidence for their criticism--when all they do is sling juvenile insults--you know they have nothing. washingtonpost.com/politics/trump…
This one is for the trolls who, apparently following someone else's direction (they sure aren't my regular followers), have piled on to this tweet.

This is from the @WSJ, which is owned by Trump supporter Rupert Murdoch.
The video of #Schiff's speech, which I've just transcribed and will thread here.
"My colleagues may think it’s OK that the Russians offered dirt on the Democratic candidate for President as part of what was described as the Russian government’s effort to help the Trump campaign. You might think that’s OK."
"My colleagues may think it’s OK that when that was offered to the the son of the President, who had a pivotal role in the campaign, that the President’s son did not call the FBI. He did not adamantly refuse that foreign help."
"No, that son said that he would love the help of the Russians. You might think it’s OK that he took that meeting.
You might think it’s OK that Paul Manafort, the campaign chair, someone with great experience in running campaigns, also took that meeting."
"You might think it’s OK that the president’s son-in=law also took that meeting.
You might think it’s OK that they concealed it from the public that their only disappointment after that meeting that the dirt they received on Hillary Clinton wasn’t better."
"You might think that's OK."
"You might think it’s OK that when it was discovered a year later that they’d lied about that meeting and said it was about adoptions, you might think it’s OK that the president is reported to have helped dictate that lie. You might think that’s OK. I don’t."
"You might think it’s OK that the campaign chairman of a Presidential campaign would offer information about that campaign to a Russian oligarch in exchange for money or debt forgiveness…you might think that’s OK. I don’t."
"You might think it’s OK that that campaign chairman offered polling data. Campaign polling data. To someone linked to Russian intelligence. I don’t think that’s OK."
"You might think it’s OK that the President himself called on Russia to hack his opponent’s emails if they were listening. You might think it’s OK that in fact later that day the Russians attempted to hack a server affiliated with that campaign. I don’t think that’s OK."
"You might think that it’s OK that the President’s son-in-law sought to establish a secret back channel of communications with the Russians through a Russian diplomatic facility. I don’t think that’s OK."
"You might think it’s OK that an associate of the President made direct contact with the GRU through Guccifer 2 and Wikileaks. That is considered a hostile intelligence agency.
You might think it’s OK a senior campaign official was instructed to reach that associate ...
"and find out what that hostile intelligence agency had to say in terms of dirt on his opponent.
You might think it’s OK that the national security advisor-designate secretly conferred with the Russian ambassador about undermining U.S. sanctions..."
"...and you might think it’s ok he lied bout it to the FBI.
You might say that’s all OK. That’s just what you need to do to win. but I don’t think it’s OK. "
"I think it’s unethical, I think it’s unpatriotic, and yes I think it’s corrupt and evidence of collusion.

Now I have always said that the question of whether this amounts to proof of conspiracy was another matter."
"Whether the Special Counsel could prove beyond a reasonable doubt the proof of that crime would be up to [him] and I would accept that decision and I do. He’s a good and honorable man and he is a good prosecutor. But I do not think that conduct, criminal or not, is OK."
