Posted on 03/15/2018 8:40:57 AM PDT by jazusamo
Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday the House Intelligence Committees investigation needs to continue, even with the special counsels ongoing investigation into the matter.
We cant simply rely on Bob Mueller cause his job is different than ours, Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, said on CNN. He was referring to special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading the investigation into collusion claims between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Its not his job to tell the country what happened...

He just needs to announce that he is “transgender” and moving toward “sexual reassignment surgery” — then he will be the ideal Democrat.
Put down the bong, Adam...
Schiffty is a shill for the Russians.
He’s just mad that MSNBC won’t be putting him on every other night now. Back to obscurity.
The witch hunt becomes nuclear and permanent.
That’s a hoot, stranger things have happened. :)
You may have hit the nail on the head. Leaking to CNN is Schiff's lifeblood. There's no reason to have him on if he's got nothing to tell.
Is this tool married or is he what seems a flaming homo?
If married i feel for his family...
Schiff needs to talk to Hillary and investigate the collusion Hillary has uncovered that did significantly influence votes and cost her the election.
That’s right, Hillary has evidence that Republican males convinced their wives and daughters to vote for Trump.
A scandal like this is perfect for crusader like Schiff.
Next thing, I can hear the Democrat mantra....Lock ‘em up, lock ‘em up....
What’s that you say? Hillary won the popular vote? But, but, the Russians, Comey, Wikileaks, what about them?
The following also Applies to the House.
Since punishment for disorderly behavior may be inflicted by a majority vote in the Senate, what
sorts of punishment may be imposed upon a Senator?
In Kilboum v. Thompson (103 U. S., 189) Justice Miller says; “We see no reason to doubt that
this punishment may in a proper case be imprisonment, and that it may be for refusal to obey some
rule on that subject made by the House for the preservation of order.”
Later, in In re Chapman (166 U. S., 668), Chief Justice Fuller says of the Senate: “It necessarily
possesses the inherent power of self-protection” (lb., 671); “Congress could not divest itself or either
of its Houses of the essential and inherent power to punish for contempt in cases to which the power of
either House extended.”
While the Supreme Court has said that it does not concede that the Houses of Congress possess
the general power of punishing for contempt analogous to that exercised by courts of justice, it had
admitted that there are cases in which the Houses of Congress have such power of punishing for contempt,
and points out the source of this power.
In Kilboum D.Thompson (103 U. S., 201) the court said: “Wemay, perhaps, find some aid * * »
if we can find out its source, and fortunately in this there is no difficulty. For, while the framers of
the Constitution did not adopt the law and custom of the English Parliament as a whole, they did incorporate
such parts of it and with it such privileges of Parliament as they thought proper to be applied
to the two Houses of Congress.”
Among these privileges, says the court, is the right to make rules and to punish members for disorderly
behavior. The Senate has not like power with Parliament in punishing citizens for contempt,
but it has like power with Parliament in punishing Senators for contempt or for any disorderly behavior
or for certain like offenses. Like Parliament, it may imprison or expel a member for offenses. “The
suspension of members from the service of the House is another form of punishment.” (May’s Parliamentary
Practice, 53.) This author gives instances of suspension in the seventeenth century and shows
the frequent suspension of members under a standing order of the House of Commons, passed February
Says Cushing, section 280: “Members may also be suspended by way of punishment, from their
functions as such, either in whole or in part or for a limited time. This is a sentence of a milder character
“During the suspension,” says Cushing, section 627, “the electors are deprived of the services of
their representative without power to supply his place, but the rights of the electors are no more infringed
by this proceeding than by an exercise of the power to imprison
The Senate may punish the Senators from South Carolina by fine, by reprimand, by imprisonment,
by suspension by a majority vote, or by expulsion with the concurrence of two-thirds of its members.
The offense is well stated in the majority report. It is not grave enough to require expulsion. A
reprimand would be too slight a punishment. The Senate by a yea-and-nay vote has unanimously
resolved that the said Senators are in contempt. A reprimand is in effect only a more formal reiterar
tion of that vote. It is not sufficiently severe upon consideration of the facts.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Yep, married but wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a front.
Worse than that is he is an active agent for the destruction of what is left of our constitutional republic. Can’t let our guard down for an instant...
Probably a freak like him though.
I’d imagine a hyphen in her name..hairy legs, Birkenstock’s..
Adam Schiffty sh*t-for-brains needs to be “pushed” out of office - and, preferably, in front of a fast moving freight train.
We cant simply rely on Bob Mueller cause his job is different than ours,
so this clown admits they are relying on Mueller....
Its NOTHING but its all they’ve got.
