Leading Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff took his all-out war against the Trump administration to the next level Tuesday, bizarrely blaming President Trump and “climate change” for the devastating forest fires sweeping California.
Schiff made the baseless accusation on social media Tuesday afternoon, saying the President’s lack of a “science advisor” since taking office was somehow responsible for the naturally occurring phenomenon.
“You’ve been in office for 18 LONG months and you still don’t have a science adviser, so allow me to help. Environmental protections have nothing to do with the wildfires in CA. Climate change does. We’re not going to let you use fires as an excuse to clear-cut our forests,” he tweeted.

Schiff’s comments come just hours after the President said California’s government and environmental policies were making it difficult for authorities to help control the mass blaze.
A NEW LOW: Schiff Claims RUSSIA Pushed SECOND AMENDMENT so AMERICANS Can ‘Kill Each Other’

“We can see for example on Facebook, so graphically what I was mentioning earlier; the multiple aims of the Russians in their interference in our elections. On Facebook you had the content that was clearly anti-Hillary and you had the content that was very pro-Trump,” said Schiff.
“Of course, they parroted Black Lives Matter to try to broaden the racial divide in this country. Fascinatingly they also trumpeted the Second Amendment. The Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment,” he added.
“The Russians would be very thrilled if we would be doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are,” said the liberal lawmaker.
ADAM SCHIFF: ‘I Don’t Know’ If Peter Strzok Should Still be at the FBI
Democratic lawmaker Adam Schiff admitted he wasn’t sure if anti-Trump DOJ official Peter Strzok should still be employed by the FBI this week, saying he acted “inappropriately” but didn’t go so far as to call for his removal from the agency.
Schiff was speaking with MSNBC’s host Chuck Todd on Sunday when he was asked if Peter Strzok “should still be with the FBI at this point?”
“I don’t know,” Schiff fired-back. “I imagine that the Office of Professional Responsibility will have to make that decision.”
“Certainly these text messages are troubling,” the congressman added. “The fact that they were on a work email, the fact that they were co-mingled with emails discussing business, all that’s problematic.”
