'We can't accept anything Don Jr. says' about Russian Federation meeting: Schiff

In January, Politico published an investigative story connecting Ukrainian government officials to a Democrat operative.

Rep. Adam SchiffAdam SchiffDemocrat critiques Trump's "infantile attack" with baby photo Controversy over Trump Jr. meeting shows no signs of losing steam Key Democrat: "We can't accept anything Don Jr. says" on Russian Federation meeting MORE (D-Calif.) in an interview early Sunday dismissed comments from Donald TrumpDonald TrumpFormer Trump adviser Caputo: Trump Jr.

The efforts helped force Manafort's resignation as campaign manager and reinforce the narrative of Trump connections to Russian Federation, although the article stated Ukraine's efforts on behalf of Clinton were far less expansive than Russia's to boost Trump. "But I think if you look at the Politico article, and we're talking about just a single article here, if you accept all the facts in the article, the scale of what the Russians did is not comparable to anything in that article".

"I understand Hillary Clinton lost", Karl said to Schiff, "and I understand this effort was not as elaborate as the Russian effort, but was it acceptable, or would it have been acceptable for the Democrats to accept help from the Ukrainian government in this campaign?"

Schiff said, "Two things, two points he wants to make".

The two Toro Rosso cars clashed at Chapel where Carlos Sainz spun off into retirement, having collided with Daniil Kvyat's auto . After a strong run on the back straight, Vettel came close to taking third away from Verstappen with a bold dive on the inside.

"This is about as clear evidence you could find of intent by the campaign to collude with the Russians, to get useful information from the Russians", Schiff said on ABC News' "This Week".

In his interview Sunday, Schiff acknowledged that if the substance of the article were true, it would be "problematic", but he argued that it is a completely different "scale".

There's no suggestion anything of that magnitude. "But, again, I think to compare the two is like a bit like comparing bank robbery with writing a check with insufficient funds". "Both appropriate money from the bank improperly, but a very different degree of seriousness and involvement in this case by a foreign government".

"Well, it would be problematic to get any sort of support from a foreign government", Schiff said.
