Yesterday, Schiff announced that former assistant U.S. attorney and NBC News pundit Daniel Goldman would be appointed to the position.
Goldman, as the Washington Times’ Rowan Scarborough points out is a supporter of the widely discredited Trump-Russia dossier which was financed by the DNC and Clinton campaign.
“Mr. Goldman has endorsed Mr. Steele’s tale of how former Trump attorney Michael Cohen secretly traveled to Prague in August 2016 to meet with Vladimir Putin aides and to orchestrate a coverup of Russian hacking,” writes Scarborough.
The publication points to a Dec. 27 tweet where Goldman responded to a McClatchy news service report that claimed a cell tower detected a ping from Cohen’s phone near Prague.
Goldman tweeted, “a few reax points: 1) If Mueller knows this, and Cohen came clean (as they say he did), why not plead to lying to Congress about this? 2) critical corroboration of Steele Dossier. Nothing has been undermined thus far. 3) collusion!! 4) big cover-up.”
Fox News points out that Goldman has a long history of criticizing President Trump on social media.
Last year, he tweeted, “Trump ‘looks bad’ because he committed a crime, nothing else. He is not above the law,” adding the hashtag #TrumpResign.
He also wrote that Trump “doesn’t care about the country,” and referred to him as “shameful.”
He doesn’t understand how trade deficits work. He doesn’t understand climate change. And now he doesn’t understand basic economics. Mostly, doesn’t care about the country, just himself. Shameful. https://t.co/kojdhqDcvR
