Adam Schiff is no longer able to yell “COLLUSION!” every five minutes because the Mueller report made his entire narrative look like a miserable failure.
Nevertheless, he is still obsessed with Trump and is now whining about executive privilege being used.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says the Trump administration "has decided to say a blanket no, no to any kind of oversight whatsoever" and is "claiming executive privilege over things that it knows there is no basis for" https://t.co/LLkFysvWLS pic.twitter.com/vAbHTAJpr4

Sen. Rand Paul used some recent history to call Schiff out for executive privilege hypocrisy.
Paul calls this absurd and this was politically motivated from the very beginning tracing back to the Clinton campaign. pic.twitter.com/vuJeWvbW0H

Rand Paul says “both sides are doing it” when asked on ABC about Trump saying it would be fine for him to ask the AG to probe Biden. Paul, also asked about Trump stonewalling Congress, instead calls Schiff a “hypocrite” bc he supported Obama’s use of exec privilege

Then President Obama asserted executive privilege in 2012 in response to Congressional inquiries about his attorney general, Eric Holder, related to the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal.
He had no problem with Obama claiming executive privilege before Eric Holders contempt vote

Eric Holder responded to Adam Schiff by saying, ‘Hold my fast and furious scheme’.

This is not to mention the fact that the Trump administration (according to Lindsey Graham) did not once invoke executive privilege during the actual investigation.
Rand Paul is right on the money here. https://t.co/sf3zaYIXoY

Schiff also said he wants to fine Trump administration officials into oblivion (to the tune of $25K a day) if they do not comply with his subpoenas.
Adam Schiff said today on ABC that the House could fine Trump officials $25,000 per day if they don't comply with subpoenas. So in addition to throwing the Attorney General in jail, Democrats are also threatening to personally bankrupt pretty much everyone in the Trump orbit

Democrat privilege: When a special counsel’s report blows the narrative about a Republican president to bits, just keep on as if the report didn’t exist.
