Schiff warns that Trump could sell Alaska to Russia, if unchecked,
Fox News ^ | 2/4/2020 | Edmund DeMarche

Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, warned on Monday that if President Trump's dealings with Ukraine are not impeachable offenses, then nothing would stand in his way from attempting bolder power grabs -- going so far to claim Trump could use Alaska as a bargaining chip with "the Russians" for support in 2020.

(((SNIP)))

"If abuse of power is not impeachable ... Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war," Schiff said. "Because those things are not necessarily criminal, this argument would allow that he could not be impeached for such abuses of power. Of course, this would be absurd. More than absurd, it would be dangerous."

This guy's certifiable and dangerous; he needs confinement to an institution on a Lithium IV drip.

We’d probably have to pay them to take him.

Shiff is certifiable.

And lib journalist clowns (but I repeat myself) actually claim that he is a great lawyer.

Heck, he represents EVERY lawyer joke that has ever been written.

Why would anyone, who was looking out for the security of our nation, even think about giving Alaska away? And how, pray tell, can that even happen?! Schiff is trying to get the news narrative back on impeachment. Good luck with that! Iowa will be the main news whether the MSM wants it or not. Individuals working the campaigns in Iowa are not going to let the MSM dictate what comes out of Iowa. They are pissed right now.

No deal in Iceland. Buy low, sell high meant having interest in Greenland (from Denmark).

Schiff ‘s Cong/district includes Hollywood. He tried to leverage his govt office to sell a screenplay-—
but Hollywood wasnt buying. Kinda warmed me to Hollywood .......a little.

Adam Schiff Writes Screenplays On The Side — he shared in his New Yorker profile that not only is he a movie buff (and often quotes “The Big Lebowski”), but also he writes screenplays on the side. There seemed to be more than a tinge of regret in the California congressman’s voice when he recalled the story of his first screenplay, a pre-Holocaust story called “Remnant.” “I had an agent at William Morris tell me it was good but no one would want to see it — too depressing,” he explained. “Then ‘Schindler’s List’ came out, and I was, like, ‘Come on!’ He wrote the next one while a prosecutor, a murder-mystery called “Minotaur,” which he said was almost accepted by Hollywood standards. But, he has high hopes for his third. “It’s a spy drama,” he said. “That one is a work in progress.”

That’s quite an imagination Mr. Schiff has. I’m sure some scriptwriter in Hollywood is already working on it.

This morning, I sent an email off to my Democratic Senator....hyping Schiff’s message on Alaska, and asking them to draft a priority list, and list New Jersey or San Francisco ahead of Alaska....if we are faced with giving up a state as a ‘gift’.

Schiff is a psychopath and dangerous.

SO WHY IN THE HELL DOES HE STILL HAVE A SECURITY CLEARANCE?

It's more likely that Trump will buy a good size chunk of Siberia and ship all the liberals there.
