Chris Matthews to Schiff Staffer: 'You've Got to Say Something that Leads to Impeachment'

Have you noticed how frustrated much of the liberal media has become over the lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion? Well, Thursday's Rolling Stone devoted a long article by Tessa Stuart giving one excuse after another why no such collusion has been discovered, How the House Intelligence Committee Collapsed on Adam Schiff.

The subtitle is "The inside story of the California Democrat's failed crusade to investigate Donald Trump." However the big story here is contained in the very first paragraph in which it is revealed that Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by Adam Schiff's appearances on Hardball in which nothing new is ever revealed as to collusion, tells a Schiff staffer what is really needed:

"Here's some advice," says Hardball host Chris Matthews. It's 6:30 p.m. on a Wednesday in MSNBC's Washington, D.C., greenroom. Rep. Adam Schiff, who just wrapped up an appearance on The Beat With Ari Melber, is getting his TV makeup wiped off, while Matthews offers some political wisdom to Schiff's deputy communications director. "You've got to say something that leads to impeachment," Matthews urges. "Anything. That's the business we're in."

Yeah, because for over a year, Adam Schiff has become a repetitive borefest during his numerous appearances on Hardball and other shows. He reveals absolutely nothing new as to Trump-Russia collusion. This has caused Chris Matthews to inform Schiff's communications director what is really needed to keep the audience from tuning out: "Something that leads to impeachment. Anything."

Oh, and as to Tessa Stuart wondering why the House Intelligence Committee "collapsed" on Adam Schiff, perhaps it is the same reason that the Senate Intelligence Committee as well as Special Counsel Robert Mueller has found no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. And that reason is simply because there was no Trump-Russia collusion. A shocking but sad fact for liberals such as Chris Matthews.
