  • Schiff, who currently serves on the House Intelligence Committee and the January 6th Committee, is infamous for his handling of the Russia collusion investigation and the first impeachment of former President Trump.
  • Schiff repeatedly issued public claims that he had evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to overturn the 2016 election, but never released key materials from the investigation.
  • Earlier this year, Schiff made similar claims that Trump was personally involved in the effort to overturn the 2020 election, but did not reveal the evidence because he did not “want to get ahead of [the J6 Committee] hearing.”
