Mark Levin Hammers Adam Schiff as a ‘Shill for the Russian Government’

During an interview you would not see on CNN or MSNBC, radio host Mark Levin slammed Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) while the conservative activist was a guest on Wednesday evening’s edition of Fox News Channel's Hannity.

The host of FNC’s new Sunday night Life, Liberty and Levin accused Schiff of being a “shill” and a “propagandist” for the Russian government, and he also hammered him for turning the House Intelligence Committee into the “House Stupid Committee.”

As for Hannity, he started the segment by showing a video of Schiff stating in a hearing on possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign:

I think you have to look at the pattern and the chronology. I certainly said that there is ample evidence of collusion. The Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help. The Russians gave help, and the president [used] that help.

But if you look at the facts that are already in the public domain, they're pretty damning.

When asked to respond to those comments, Levin stated: “Schiff is a shill for the Russian government” despite “his spinning on all those left-wing TV shows.”

The Congressman “put out a list of 30 more interviews he wants to do even though the Republicans on the committee said there's no collusion,” the radio host added.

 

According to Levin, that long list included “Reince Priebus, Stephen Miller, Kathie McFarlane, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, a bunch of consultants, people with the Trump organization,” while “some are Trump's lawyers, somebody that runs a group.”

“Of course, he wants Donald Trump, Jr., to kick around,” Levin continued. “He wants Jared Kushner to kick around, family members, on and on and on.”

“Let me tell you who this shill for Russia doesn't want,” the radio host then stated.

“He doesn't want Hillary Clinton” even though her campaign “laundered money ... to corroborate and collude with the Russians, with their phony dossier,” Levin noted. ”He didn't ask for a single Hillary Clinton campaign official. Why is that, Mr. Schiff, since we know they colluded?”

Also, the Congressman didn't invite a former head of the Democratic National Committee (i.e. Debbie Wassermann Schultz and Donna Brazile), the radio host added: “Where did their money come from? … That's something he doesn't want to talk about.”

“I've got more: Barack Obama,” Levin stated, since he was “the president of the United States under whom all this occurred.”

The California Democrat “is not interested in Uranium One” even though “20 percent of America's uranium is now controlled by Vladimir Putin,” the radio host noted.

Schiff “doesn't want to hear Bill Clinton testify” even though the former president “got money from the Russians to give speeches around the same time,” Levin continued. “He doesn't want anyone from the Clinton Foundation to testify” while the organization “made a fortune off the Russians.”

“Now why doesn’t he want Susan Rice back?” the guest asked. “There's a new book out” that says the former national security officer “objected to the cyber-security personnel in the White House who said: ‘Hey, Susan. The Russians are interfering with our elections.’ And you know what she told them? ‘Stand down.’”

Levin then queried: “What about Ben Rhodes, deputy director of the National Security Council? Doesn't Mr. Schiff want to know” what that council knew “about Russian interference in our government?”

“I will tell you this, Mr. Schiff: ‘You are a leaker,’” the radio host stated before challenging the Democrat to take a lie detector test “so the American people can be sure that you don’t leak” because “I believe you do.”

Levin then gave the names of several other people he believes are leaking information, including James Comey, who served as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe; and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

As a result, the investigation into collusion “has been a sham from day one,” the radio host asserted.

“I couldn't say it any better,” Hannity stated. “You're right on every point you just made.”

This kind of commentary is rarely, if ever, found on the liberal networks on cable TV. Instead, CNN and MSNBC strive to be even more liberal while further splinting their audience.
