John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Adam Schiff, Who Pushed False Collusion Narrative For 2 Years, Calls On Barr To Resign

A top House Democrat who pushed the now-debunked collusion narrative for more than two years is calling on Attorney General William Barr to resign from office for giving what he claims is “deliberately false and misleading” testimony to Congress last month.

“There’s no sugarcoating this: I think he should step down,” California Rep. Adam Schiff said in an interview on CBS News.

Schiff was responding to reports that Mueller sent a letter to Barr on March 27 expressing concern with Barr’s letter to Congress laying out the principal conclusions of the special counsel’s probe.

In that letter, dated March 24, Barr said that the special counsel found no evidence of collusion, while declining to make a decision on the question of whether President Trump obstructed justice. Barr decided not to pursue and obstruction case after consulting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw Mueller’s probe.

The Washington Post and New York Times simultaneously broke the story of Mueller’s letter Tuesday night, on the eve of Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. It was not clear exactly what concerns Mueller had with Barr’s March 24 letter, though he complained about how the media had interpreted it. The Post reported that Mueller told Barr in a follow-up phone call that he did not consider Barr’s letter to be misleading or inaccurate.

Democrats have argued that Barr’s letter downplayed Mueller’s findings in order to protect Trump, especially on the question of obstruction.

Schiff pointed to Barr’s statement in an April 9 congressional hearing in which he told Florida Rep. Charlie Crist that he did not know what concerns the special counsel’s office had with his March 24 letter.

“Reports have emerged recently, general, that members of the Special Counsel’s team are frustrated at some level with the limited information included in your March 24th letter. Do you know what they are referencing with that?” Crist asked Barr.

“No, I don’t,” Barr replied.

Schiff called Barr’s response to Crist “deliberately false and misleading,” saying that the attorney general was aware of Mueller’s complaint at the time of the hearing.

“I think his statement is deliberately false and misleading, and yes, most people would consider that to be a lie. He’s a very smart man; he knew exactly what he was being asked by Congress,” said Schiff.

Attorney General Barr should resign.

He misled the American people with his inaccurate summary of Mueller’s report.

Then he misled the Congress when he denied knowledge of Mueller’s concerns.

How can he be trusted to impartially administer justice?

Schiff has faced calls of his own to step down as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Republican members of the committee unanimously called on him to step down as chairman because of his leading role in promoting the false claim that Trump and his associates conspired with Russia during the 2016 campaign.

Schiff has claimed in the past to have seen “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion. Mueller found no evidence of a conspiracy between Trump associates and Russia.
