SCHIFF: "But this has become the President's defense. And yet, this defense proved indefensible. If abuse of power is not impeachable, even though it is clear the Founders considered it the highest of all high crimes and misdemeanors, but if it were not impeachable, then a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct and the president would now be beyond reach. 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. 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.
Yep I heard him say this. Hope the Senate was listening too.
Wow. Talk about jumping the whale shark...
Adam Schiff has lost his marbles. Hes gone full delusional.
You forgot Harry Potter. That was from Jason Crowe
I don’t think so. I think he could offer Schiff to everybody, and no one would take him. No one needs another crazy loon in their country.
What an idiot
Somebody reserve a rubber room and a straight-jacket for this lunatic.
He’s pretty good at writing fairy tales...
You just gotta wonder how many people this guy railroaded when he was a prosecutor...
Earlier today I found a metaphor for Schiff in an article about Coronavirus. Seems like it fits perfectly.
“...A virus-laden aerosol plume emanating from a Sars patient with diarrhoea ”
If Trump is not removed, he could offer Schiff and Nadler to the ChiComs.
Schiff is a freaking maroon.
I think he may be having withdrawals from not doing Ed Buck.
Red baiting stinko pinko.
The Left has no ground on which to decry Joe McCarthy now. Their hysteria is completely unfounded and it is a bunch of “Red Smears”.
What an absolutely stupid thing to say. Dumb a**.
Omg. Theres a video of it. Hes mentally unstable.
What’s the difference in that and Dems talking about (1) eliminating the Electoral Process and (2) making Puerto Rico and other commonwealths States so they can dominate American politics from now on.
I believe this 100%. I know quite well Schiff is completely insane, as is Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler and the rest of these absolute lunatics. The biggest lunatic of them all, Rob Reiner, will take this comment by Schiff and expound on it for weeks, claim Trump will give away the entire country to Putin.
Look what he wrote today...
The most Criminally Corrupt President in US history has committed the Impeachable offense our Founders were most afraid of: An unchecked POTUS using his power to pressure a foreign country to win an election. A Senate acquittal=A Criminal POTUS can never be held Accountable.
Schiffhead really said it! Apparently, he doesnt know AL is a solid Red state!
Why on Gods green earth would Trump sell it back to Russia? Geez.
Why would he want to get rid of a state which consistently gives its electoral votes to the Republican candidate? How much better to offer Vermont to Canada.
