Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday said there’s “pretty compelling evidence” of Trump campaign collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Schiff refuted the findings of  Senate Intelligence Committee chair Richard Burr, R-N.C., that the panel found no evidence of collusion with Moscow.

"You can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence,” Schiff said. “Now, there's a difference between seeing evidence of collusion and being able to prove a criminal conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt.”

"All of this is evidence of collusion,” he added. “And you either have to look the other way to say it isn't, or you have to have a different word for it, because it is a corrupt dealing with a foreign adversary during a campaign.”

Schiff also said the president’s declaration of a national emergency to build his long-promised border wall is “daring the court to strike this down.”

"This is the first time a president has tried to declare an emergency when Congress explicitly rejected funding for the particular project that the president is advocating,” Schiff said. “He's pretty much daring the court to strike this down. It is going to be a real test for my GOP colleagues in Congress and their devotion to the institution."
