Devin Nunes says there’s nothing there — no evidence of Russian contact among Trump operatives.

Adam Schiff says they haven’t even looked at the evidence yet.

Both statements within hours of each other, 2/27. Incredible.

Nunes: “There is no evidence that I’ve been presented [by the intelligence community] of regular contact with anybody in the Trump campaign,” Nunes told reporters. “The way it sounds like to me is, it’s been looked into and there’s no evidence of anything there.”

Schiff: “‘We haven’t obtained any evidence yet, so it’s premature for us to be saying that we’ve reached any conclusions about the issue of collusion,’ Schiff said, noting that the committee has not yet called witnesses or examined documents.”

What the hell is going on?
