"You heard another display of alternative facts from Kellyanne Conway today where she could not even acknowledge that the Russians tried to help the Trump campaign," Schiff said on ABC's "This Week."

 

Schiff's comments come after special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerCNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump CNN anchor rips Trump over Stone while evoking Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report: New Hampshire fallout MORE's probe into Russian election interference concluded with the release of a public report on Thursday.

Schiff went on to maintain that there is evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, regardless of Mueller's investigation concluding that there was no criminal cooperation.

“I’ve been very clear over the last year, year and half that there is ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”

Conway appeared on "This Week" directly before Schiff.

She argued that Trump "won because he was the better candidate" when asked about Mueller's conclusion that Russia worked to help elect the president.
