Poor Adam Schiff.
He went all-in on his hopes for the Mueller Investigation.
And it isn’t working out.
Clearly Schiff has lost faith in his guy.
But he isn’t alone.
Both he and Rachel Maddow must be grieving.
In an effort to keep the collusion dream alive, Schiff penned an op-ed for the Washington Post berating Republicans for enabling President Trump and refusing to “speak out” against him.
Poor Adam is in the “denial” stage of the five stages of Mueller Investigation Grief.

The Democrats and the media have built up Robert Mueller into a super hero. And he’s about to let them down.
There’s never been any evidence of “Russian Collusion with Trump.”
But Schiff just cannot let it go.
For nearly two years, we’ve all been told that it is up to Mueller to get to the truth.
And now that the truth isn’t looking so collusiony, Adam Schiff is – as Wall Street Journalist Kimberly Strassel put it yesterday – “Schiffting to Phase 2 of Collusion.”
Mueller let Adam down. He broke his heart.
So Adam is looking elsewhere for satisfaction.
From Strassel’s piece:
The collusionists need a “new phase” as signs grow that the special counsel won’t help realize their reveries of a Donald Trump takedown. They had said Mr. Mueller would provide all the answers. Now that it seems they won’t like his answers, Democrats and media insist that any report will likely prove “anticlimactic” and “inconclusive.” “This is merely the end of Chapter 1,” said Renato Mariotti, a CNN legal “analyst.”
Mr. Schiff turned this week to a dependable scribe—the Washington Post’s David Ignatius—to lay out the next chapter of the penny dreadful. Mr. Ignatius was the original conduit for the leak about former national security adviser Mike Flynn’s conversations with a Russian ambassador, and the far-fetched claims that Mr. Flynn had violated the Logan Act of 1799. Mr. Schiff has now dictated to Mr. Ignatius a whole new collusion theory. Forget Carter Page, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos—whoever. The real Trump-Russia canoodling rests in “Trump’s finances.” The future president was “doing business with Russia” and “seeking Kremlin help.”
So, no apologies. No acknowledgment that Mr. Schiff & Co. for years have pushed fake stories that accused innocent men and women of being Russian agents. No relieved hope that the country might finally put this behind us. Just a smooth transition—using Russia as a hook—into Mr. Trump’s finances. Mueller who?
What’s mind-boggling is that reporters would continue to take Mr. Schiff seriously, given his extraordinary record of incorrect and misleading pronouncements. This is the man who, on March 22, 2017, helped launch full-blown hysteria when he said on “Meet the Press” that his committee already had the goods on Trump-Russia collusion.
“I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now,” Mr. Schiff declared then. Almost two years later, he’s provided no such evidence and stopped making the claim—undoubtedly because, as the Senate Intelligence Committee has said publicly, no such evidence has been found.
And guess who is providing Adam Schiff with this “evidence” for his Phase 2?
Yup, the same Glenn Simpson who peddled the discredited Steele dossier.
From Strassel’s column:
With a track record like this, who wouldn’t believe Mr. Schiff’s new claim, in the Ignatius interview, that the key to collusion rests in Trump finances—in particular something to do with Deutsche Bank? But hold on. Where did we first hear that Deutsche Bank theory? That’s right. See pages 64 and 117 of the wild House testimony of Glenn Simpson—head of Fusion GPS, the organization behind the Steele dossier. It’s right there, stuffed in between Mr. Simpson’s musings that Ivanka Trump might be involved with a “Russian Central Asian organized crime nexus,” that there is something nefarious happening on the “island of St. Martin in the Caribbean,” and that Roger Stone is part of a “Turkey-Russia” plot.
Mr. Schiff is taking his cue for Phase 2 of his investigation from the same Democrat-hired opposition-research group that launched the failed Phase 1.
It would be comical if it wasn’t so perverse.
The fact that Schiff refuses to let go of the Russian Collusion conspiracy theory tells you all you need to know about this stupid investigation.
It was never about finding the truth.
It was never about “evidence.”
This was just a continuation of the DOJ/FBI efforts to undermine the Trump campaign then subsequently delegitimize the duly-elected President in order to nullify the 2016 election.
The truth is, there really is no daylight between what Jussie Smollett attempted to do and what Adam Schiff and the RussiaGate promoters have been doing for the last three years.
It is a fraud, a hoax, an egregious waste of time and taxpayer money, and an unmitigated smear of the innocent.
And the fact that Adam Schiff refuses to let go of this hoax isn’t just delusional; it’s despicable.
