Rep. Schiff: Russia ‘Big Fans’ Of 2nd Amendment - They Want Us To Kill 'Each Other’


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) says Russia promoted the Second Amendment on social media because they want Americans to kill one another.

Schiff told a University of Pennsylvania audience that much of the Russian content posted during the 2016 election “was just content designed to pit us against each other, to exploit our divisions.”

Schiff says the Russians parroted Black Lives Matter online to broaden America’s racial divide, and also pushed gun rights.

“They also trumpeted the Second Amendment. Apparently the Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment. They don’t particularly want a Second Amendment of their own, but they’re really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are,” Schiff told the audience last week.
