Maybe some of my left leaning friends and anti-Trumpers here can help me out with a quick, simple question:

You all vilified-- and still do--- Trump Jr. for meeting with some Russian  who offered "dirt" on Hillary-- 

so, just how is that different than what Schiff was doing-- or at least thought he was doing-- here?

HE DIDN'T REPORT IT! Get this through your skull.

And none of the other contacts with Russians by any of Trump's team were reported. And they knew they were supposed to do so. Then when asked about their contacts - every one of them - they lied and said they had no contacts with any Russians. Later it was found that many had numerous contacts with the Russians.

Schiff did report it to the FBI and told them that he will pursue this even though it seemed fake.

The difference is that you as a citizen have no obligation to report foreign contacts until you have been read in to certain classified programs.  In fact as a Naval Officer with TS clearance I did not have to report contact with people in foreign ports or during RIMPAC when all allied navies visited Pearl Harbor.  Obviously, Schiff has been briefed into compartmentalized classified programs.  I am highly skeptical that the son of a candidate was already briefed into such compartmentalized information.  Where is the need to know?  Why would he need to know even today?

Then they lied about it.

It is pretty fascinating, a British spy, the Australian government and the Trump campaign all knew that the Trump campaign were involved with Russians, this, while the FBI was reporting that Russians were attempting to meddle in the elections, and it was only the Trump campaign that felt it wasn't worth reporting, and then they lied about it.

What Trump has made clear over and over again, and its what makes him unfit to be president, is that he does not care about this country. He cares only about himself, even if it means depending on a foreign adversary to help him win power.. And that this is okay with such a large percentage of our population, and the Republican party, whose Congressional leadership thought the whole thing was funny.

Who lied?  How do you know Trump Jr had a 3 minute meeting with someone?  Because he said so!  

And Hillary wasn't involved with the Russians?  She paid them to make up stories about Trump.
