  • Since Dems let Schiff get away with lying about the whistleblower they can't be trusted in the Senate trial phase

    On the Senate floor, Rep. Adam Schiff implored GOP Senators on the grounds that the President does not have the interests of the nation in mind while he himself stood upon rather shaky ground. “... you can't trust this President to do what's right for this country,” Schiff stated. But some time back Schiff was asked if he or his staff had met with the "whistleblower" beforehand and he said no to this on MSNBC. But Sam Stein later down the road gave Schiff's apology for him on MSNBC when Schiff essentially admitted he had lied. And yet Dems like...

    "Vote against the President and your head will be on a pike".______ There was audible grumbling and cries of “not true” heard by reporters in the gallery. Schiff managed to alienate Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) one of the few Republicans whom Democrats and the media believe are persuadable on impeachment. “CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidante said that GOP senators were warned ‘vote against your President, vote against the President and your head will be on a pike’. I don’t know if that’s true: ‘Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike’. I...
  • White House spokesman invokes 'Spaceballs' in critique of Adam Schiff's impeachment case

    A top White House spokesman invoked the 1987 Mel Brooks classic “Spaceballs” in laying out just how flimsy lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff’s, D-Calif., impeachment case is against President Trump. Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told “The Story” on Friday that the House Democrats’ case against Trump — in which they alleged abuse of power in the form of the president trying to personally benefit through foreign policy with Ukraine — effectively has no first-hand witnesses. Democrats, he said, are trying to “splice it together [and] pass it off as real.” […] “It’s all ‘your father’s brother’s cousin’s nephew’s former...

  • Adam Schiff portrayed the impeachment trial like a criminal trial. He should know better.

    Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Democrats’ lead impeachment manager, argued against the Senate Republicans’ proposed trial rules Tuesday by analogizing the impeachment process to a criminal trial. As a former federal prosecutor, he knows exactly how disingenuous that analogy is. Federal criminal trials are governed by the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. One might argue that the entire analogy falls at the outset, as the House Democrats’ articles of impeachment do not claim that President Trump committed a crime. But overlooking that minor point, the House’s procedure failed every test those rules establish. The latest Trump impeachment trial...
  • Face of impeachment: Schiff sets tone with appeals to Senate

    The Associated Press ^ | January 24, 2020 | By MARY CLARE JALONICK
    In the otherwise scripted impeachment trial, it was a rare spontaneous moment: Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump’s chief defenders, stopped Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead prosecutor, to shake his hand and compliment him on his arguments for Trump’s removal. Schiff is the face of the House’s impeachment case against Trump, which has made him the principal target of Trump’s ire. Though he has six managers by his side, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed Schiff, her confidant, as the lead impeachment manager. He is setting the tone of the prosecution’s case. “In a way I do feel like...

    For an advocate, it is a coup when the judge rules that harmful testimony is excluded. But such rulings always come with a warning label: Don’t open the door. That is, don’t do anything that makes the otherwise irrelevant evidence relevant. President Trump’s impeachment trial has a Biden door. Adam Schiff has thrown it wide open.

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has had enough of the impeachment trial by the time it got to the first dinner break in President Trump’s impeachment trial Tuesday night. “God help us if we have to listen to [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff, D-Calif., prattle on for 24 hours, non-stop,” lamented Cruz in the Senate subway terminal. This is the balancing act for the Democrats. Schiff is the face of the Democrats’ impeachment effort. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., handpicked Schiff to be the lead impeachment manager to present the House’s case to the Senate, leapfrogging House Judiciary Committee Chairman...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain slammed the "performance art" of House Intelligence Committee chairman and leading House manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, suggesting Schiff's dramatics are meant to indicate future political ambitions. After Schiff received praise by her daytime co-hosts, McCain began by expressing she feels like she "lives on a different planet" by not being enthralled by his opening arguments. "When I saw Adam Schiff, I thought he seemed pretty performative ... and that he's clearly trying to take over for Dianne Feinstein at some point," McCain said, referring to the California...

    Tucker Carlson continued his mockery of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and his performance during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump Thursday, saying Schiff had revived his "wartime general" character from the previous day's proceedings while adding a "theological dimension." "Say what you will, but as a piece of theater. It had literally everything. There was dastardly old Vladimir Putin rubbing his hands together in diabolical glee," Carlson said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," mocking Schiff's remarks. "Somewhere deep beneath the Kremlin: 'Those foolish Americans. Little do they know my troops will be in Phoenix by nightfall.'" Carlson...

    Months before a whistleblower complaint that would spark the Democrat effort for impeachment, a shadowy liberal group founded and staffed by Obama administration alums and former Democrat congressional staffers launched an outside investigation into whether President Trump’s allies were seeking “foreign interference” from Ukraine in the 2020 elections. The group, American Oversight, began investigating the issue in May — more than two months before the “whistleblower” filed a complaint alleging Trump was “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals.” The group’s purpose is to...

    Adam Schiff rebuked Republican senators for walking out of Donald Trump's impeachment trial on the second full day of the Democratic case to remove the president – but at least 16 senators weren’t even there at the start of his remarks for the historic trial. Just minutes later, fellow Democratic impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler made a key constitutional point by playing a video clip from Sen. Lindsey Graham from the impeachment of Bill Clinton – but Graham was not even in the chamber to hear it. The moment was noticeable inside the august Senate chamber, and was not lost...

Schiff warned that if Trump is not impeached, the American people may have a chance to tamper with the next election. "If President Trump is not impeached, the American people might get a say in who is president,"...(SNIP)

    Rep. Adam Schiff released inaccurate information last week regarding a text message between Rudy Giuliani and a former associate concerning Ukraine-related matters, according to a news report. The California Democrat claimed in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler on Jan. 14 that Soviet-born businessman Lev Parnas sent a message to Giuliani on July 3, 2019, about a potential meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff asserted that Parnas’s message to Giuliani that he was “trying to get us mr Z” referred to an attempt to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “Mr. Parnas continued to try to...

    After all his claims that turned out to be “exactly wrong,” how can senators be expected to believe Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) claims during the Senate impeachment trials, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Wednesday. Rep. Jordan tweeted video of his comments to reporters following Impeachment Manager Schiff’s two-plus hours of allegations against President Donald Trump at the trial: Schiff: 1. "More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion 2. Nunes memo was false 3. FISA process was fine 4. The "Whistleblower" would testify 5. "We haven't spoken... with the 'Whistleblower'" 6. Parodied @POTUS' call 7. "Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky But today...

    Earlier today, President Trump shared a video of House Intel Chair and lead Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff as Wile E. Coyote chasing the road runner. In the hilarious animated short, Schiff is wearing a coyote costume and continues to fail in his attempts to catch the road runner. Trump supporters found the cartoon funny and left positive responses on social media. Watch and judge for yourself.

    NBC "News" ^ | January 23, 2020 | By Jonathan Allen
    The plot is intricate, but the math is simple. The latter requires senators and the public to understand only that "two plus two equals four," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the lead House manager in President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial, said Wednesday. That basic math is all it takes, he argued, to conclude that Trump prioritized his own interests over national security by using foreign aid as leverage to force Ukraine into helping his re-election effort. The Ukrainians knew the score — "they're not stupid," Schiff said — and he left unspoken his thoughts on the intellectual capacity of senators...
