FLASHBACK: Shifty Adam Schiff Welcomed Help From Russian Prank Callers Offering Dirt on Trump
In the aftermath of former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s congressional testimony this week, audio of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-MA) welcoming fake dirt from supposed Russian actors, who were actually Russian comedians and pranksters, has resurfaced.
As Democrats continue to chase the dragon of President Donald Trump colluding with Russia to interfere in the 2016 United States presidential election, audio has resurfaced of Schiff welcoming help from Russians if it could hurt President Trump.
Russian comedians Vladmir Kyzetsov and Alexei Stolyarov prank called Schiff, offering juicy secret recordings of President Trump or his team communicating with Russians. The prank was that the Russians had blackmail against the president, and would not release the blackmail if President Trump agreed to do away with all Russian sanctions.
The audio, trimmed for brevity, starts with the comedians saying “And the second part of their passport was it rains again on Brighton Beach.” They continued, “All those compromising materials will never be released if Trump will cancel all Russian sanctions.”
This prompted Schiff to respond, “Okay, well obviously we would welcome a chance to get copies of all of those recordings.”
Democrat Adam Schiff was happy to accept foreign help. He told Russians offering fake material about President Trump that he "would welcome the chance to get copies of those recordings." The Russians recorded their phone call. Listen for yourself! #MuellerHearing pic.twitter.com/QnxldSOFyX

Last month, President Trump said he would accept foreign information without going to the FBI or other law enforcement, prompting the mainstream media and Democrats to suggest the president is corrupt and is willing to allow foreign countries to meddle in United States elections.
With the Russia investigation now behind him—sort of—and 2020 looming, President Donald Trump is finally willing to say aloud what he’s clearly been thinking: there was nothing wrong with talking to the Russians in 2016, and he’d totally do it again if given the chance. Asked in an interview with ABC News what he would do if foreign officials contacted his campaign again with dirt on a 2020 opponent, Trump told George Stephanopoulos, “I think I’d want to hear it.”
“I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening,” the president continues in the interview, an excerpt of which aired Wednesday evening. “If somebody called from a country—Norway—we have information on your opponent. Oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
In short, the media and Democrats are ready to pile on President Trump for making off the cuff remarks about doing something Schiff actually attempted to do. Had the Russian comedians been offering legitimate information, Schiff would have colluded with them to gain information about President Trump that could have, at the very least, derailed the 2020 presidential election.
At worst, the information could have potentially given more fire to the flames of impeachment among radical Democrats in the House of Representatives.
