Excerpt: "You might say that's all OK. You might say that's just what you need to do to win. But I don't think it's OK. I think it's immoral. I think it's unethical. I think it's unpatriotic and, yes, I think it's corrupt - and evidence of collusion."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Poor Adam Schiff. He stuck his neck out and now it is just out there hanging. Soon someone will simply chop it off.

He starts about by saying "some think it is OK that the Russians offered dirt on the democratic nominee." This is not true. Russians did not offer dirt. Rob Goldstone offered dirt or said that Russians had dirt. Goldstone has done errands for MI6 for a long time. We know that Richard Dearlove -- who has been associated with Goldstone in the past -- and Stefan Halper of the CIA were trying to engage any Trump campaign worker they could in stories about Russian Dirt. This is a classic sting operation. Schiff just does not get it.

Halper and Dearlove co-taught a course on spy craft at Cambridge University. Dearlove was the guy who ran Tony Blair's part in the Iraq WMD fraud. Dealove is close to Christopher Steele.

Schiff better be careful. If he scratches too hard he may unearth another conspiracy altogether -- one that is hiding in plain sight.

PS -- it is very likely that Mueller looked very carefully at the Trump Jr. meeting and wrote about it in his report. It will be interesting to see what he says. He obviously did not believe this meeting or any of the other meetings were collusion with Russians.

Mueller's interpretation of the cases of Page, Papadopolous, Trump, Jr. and others will be very interesting to read. We've had so much hype and hysteria from the major media. They have had so little of the actual facts of these stories. Mueller certainly had all of the facts. It will be interesting to see what he concludes about the "Russian Dirt on Hillary" (RDOH).

This speech by Adam Schiff is extraordinary. The people out to vilify him must be braindead.

This is an extraordinary use of the word extraordinary. Schiff makes a lot of claims that he never backs up. In this talk, he says that Trump Jr and the rest were only disappointed in the quality of the Russian Dirt on Hillary they got at the meeting. This is the first time I've seen anyone say that Russian Dirt on Hillary actually changed hands at the meeting.

Does Schiff have this dirt? What is it? Was it used in the campaign? Did Mueller get this dirt?

This is the kind of claim for which material evidence should exist. Maybe Schiff or someone else can post a link to a website where this Russian Dirt on Hillary is posted.

There was a mountain of dirt on Hillary published on the web. The Clintons have always been dirt magnets. Some of it is true and some is false. But none of it seems to be Russian Dirt.

The DCN/Podesta emails are not Russian Dirt. They are Democrat Party Dirt on Hillary.

Anyway, at some point Schiff will have to provide evidence for his claims or he will do great damage to the Democratic party.

It is all just extraordinary. Schiff is, indeed, out of the ordinary. He is surreal.
