House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, one of the most visible purveyors of the narrative that Trump and his associates engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Russia to rig the 2016 election, apparently no longer believes that Trump committed a crime by “colluding” with the Russians.

During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Schiff ticked off a litany of suspicious activities involving Trump and his associates that he said suggest that collusion did take place – but instead of labeling the behavior as evidence of a criminal conspiracy, Schiff declared that “there’s a difference between seeing eidence of collusion and being able to prove a criminal conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt” and that it would be “up to Mueller” to determine whether Trump or senior members of his campaign team broke the law.

Schiff was responding to a question about the Senate Intelligence Committee’s recent decision to wind down its probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr – whom, as CNN said, hasn’t “exactly been a rapid partisan” on this topic – declared that the committee didn’t find sufficient evidence of collusion.

Thouigh Schiff said that both he and Senate Intel Ranking Member Mark Warner disagreed with this assessment, he conceded that it would be “up to Mueller” to reach a final conclusion.
