Adam Schiff: No ‘patriotism in Trump’s GOP’

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said the Republican Party under President Trump has “no patriotism.”

The House Intelligence Committee chairman tweeted after Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, summarized Russia’s attempts to intervene in the 2016 election as just “a few Facebook ads.”

“On Sunday, Kellyanne Conway wouldn’t even acknowledge Russia helped Trump. And Rudy Giuliani effectively said it was fine if they did,” Schiff tweeted Tuesday. “Today, Jared Kushner said the attack was no more than a few Facebook ads. There is no patriotism in Trump’s GOP. Only cowardly opportunism.”

The Kushner comment that set off Schiff came during an interview hosted by Time Magazine. Kushner said investigations into Russia “had a much harsher impact on our democracy” than Russia’s attempts to meddle in the 2016 election.

“You look at what Russia did, you know, buying some Facebook ads to sow dissent and do it — and it’s a terrible thing — but I think the investigations and all the speculation that’s happened for the last two years has had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple Facebook ads,” Kushner said.
