  • House Intel Committee Republicans Boycott Hearing Due to Schiff’s Refusal to Address FISA Abuses

    Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee boycotted a hearing on Wednesday, complaining that the committee’s Democratic chairman Adam Schiff has neglected proper oversight of the intelligence community by failing to hold a hearing on the Justice Department inspector general’s report detailing the FBI’s FISA abuses. “Under your chairmanship, the House Intelligence Committee has strayed far from its mandate of overseeing the Intelligence Community,” the panel’s nine GOP members wrote in a letter to Schiff obtained by the Daily Caller. “Until the Committee prioritizes oversight activities related to urgent and critical concerns, Republican Members cannot support distractions from our core responsibilities,”...

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 7, 2020 | Hans von Spakovsky
    The Senate has voted against impeaching President Donald Trump, defeating two articles of impeachment by votes of 52-48 and 53-47. Trump joins two former presidents, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, in being impeached by the House of Representatives before being acquitted by the Senate. The House failed to produce credible evidence that the president committed any “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” or engaged in any action that justified his impeachment by the House, let alone his conviction and removal from office by the Senate. Despite Democrats’ loss in the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and...
  • Gregg Jarrett: Trump acquittal in impeachment trial is a humiliating defeat for partisan Democrats

    The Democratic scheme to evict President Trump from office, which collapsed Wednesday when a majority of the Senate voted to acquit him of impeachment charges, was an extravagant waste of time. Sadly, amid today’s feverish electoral polemics, rage has replaced reason. Impeachment was always a fatuous and frivolous exercise initiated by House Democrats. Their constitutionally cited grounds were incurably weak and driven by a visceral hostility toward Trump. Democrats who supported Trump’s impeachment and conviction were motivated by an irrational but overwhelming desire to avenge their loss of the presidency in the 2016 election, obscuring their reason and judgment. The...

    The partisan operation to oust Trump through impeachment for winning the 2016 presidential election finally came to an end on Wednesday. The Senate voted to acquit Trump on the first article of impeachment, a charge for abuse of power, with a vote of 52-48, falling short of the 67 needed to remove the president from office. They voted to acquit on the second article of impeachment, a charge of obstruction of justice, with a vote of 53-47. Sen. Mitt Romney announced just hours before he would break party lines and split his vote, voting Trump guilty on the abuse of...

    As establishment Democrats grow wary of a Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) nomination, MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews raised the possibility of Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) emerging as the Democratic nominee during a contested convention. "How about Adam Schiff?" Matthews asked during a discussion about the primary nomination. "Could they all agree let’s give it to Schiff?"

    With a listing, massively failing impeachment ship to navigate back home, and news focused on Iowa, you'd think House impeachment manager Adam Schiff would want to make his grand exit closing speech with some kind of dignity. No such luck. He went out like a nut instead, throwing out crazy talk and reminding voters that the whole thing was a cooked up plot by anti-Trump lunatics. According to Mairead McArdle at National Review, here's Schiff's final pitch to the Senate, seeking to persuade the very tired senators up there past midnight to do what he wants and vote to oust...

    RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) said Monday that she will not vote to convict President Trump. “I cannot vote to convict. The Constitution provides for impeachment but does not demand it in all instances.” Murkowski said. “The response to the president’s behavior is not to disenfranchise nearly 63 million Americans and remove him from the ballot. The House could have pursued censure and not immediately jumped to the remedy of last resort.” Murkowski also blasted President Trump and spread Schiff’s lie that he was advancing his personal interests when he asked Zelensky to do “us” (the country) a favor by...
  • Schiff: If Trump Isn’t Removed He ‘Could Offer Alaska to the Russians in Exchange for Support in the Next Election’

    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...

    This impeachment charade has blown-up in the Democrat and Neocon faces, but it doesn’t end there. Why has Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and a significant number of California’s representatives spearheaded this sham impeachment of President Trump? Are they using this process to fish for information about other possible indictments sealed in other matters? Something has the Democrat leadership and neocons scared. LINK

    Let's not give Nancy Pelosi and her obviously filled-with-hate, malicious and malevolent band of America-and-constitution-hating thugs the last word Two principles in law nullify, make voidable, and void, a defective and unconstitutional impeachment. As if it never happened! * Ab Initio - ” translates as “from the beginning.” (Initio is a form of the noun initium, meaning “beginning,” which gave rise to such English words as initial, initiate, and initiative.) Ab also used as an adjective meaning “starting from or based on first principles”...

    More to the point, Donald Trump doesn’t think Democrats can work with him either. In his Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump complained bitterly about the “damage” done to his family and the country in the impeachment and trial. “I’d like to” work with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump told Hannity, but they’re so dishonest and obsessed with winning that he doesn’t think it’s possible.That sounds like exactly what Pelosi and Schumer would say, too: HANNITY: Two hundred and seventy days from now, I guess the ultimate jury –the American people — go to...

    Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead House manager in President Trump's Senate trial, said Sunday that there is nothing Democrats could have done differently during the impeachment process. Ahead of the Senate’s likely vote to acquit President Trump on Wednesday, Schiff defended Democrats’ methods and said that he and his colleagues “proved” their case. “Look, there's nothing that I can see that we could have done differently because as the senators have already admitted, we proved our case. We proved our case,” Schiff said on CBS's “Face the Nation.” **SNIP** CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if it was...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) declined to comment on whether the House would subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton after the topic came up during an interview Sunday. CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Schiff, the head House impeachment manager in President Trump's impeachment trial, if Bolton would be subpoenaed in the lower chamber following the Senate’s likely acquittal of Trump. “I don't want to comment to this point on what our plans may or may not be with respect to John Bolton,” Schiff said on "Face The Nation." “But I will say this: whether it's before – in testimony before the...

    The Hill ^ | 02 01 2020 | Tal Axelrod
    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) raked in more than $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, a hefty haul that came during his high-profile leadership over the House’s impeachment investigation into President Trump. Schiff is entering 2020 with more than $8.1 million cash on hand, a substantial figure for a House member in an election year. Schiff’s race is not particularly competitive – he won reelection in 2018 with nearly 80 percent of the vote in California’s 28th Congressional District. The California Democrat has won plaudits from members of his own party for his handling of the House Intelligence Committee’s...

    I'm an over-the-road truck driver. That means I have lots of time to indulge myself in activities not given to ordinary mortals, such as listening gavel-to-gavel to the Senate's impeachment process (still in progress as of this writing). Most ordinary mortals do not enjoy (?) this luxury, because they have lives of their own: things like home, family, hobbies, jobs that don't permit radio or TV listening. But me, I'm a captive audience in my truck, so if I feel like listening, then listening is what I do. It makes the miles go by. In the course of my tuning...

    House impeachment manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., continues to prove he is a "pathological liar" and a partisan as he leads the Democrats' efforts to convict President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial, Newt Gingrich said Thursday. Schiff's description of a hypothetical conversation between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin was the latest example, Gingrich, a former speaker of the House of Representatives, said during an appearance on "The Ingraham Angle." "If the president went further and said to Putin in that secret meeting," Schiff said earlier in the day on the Senate floor. "I want you to hack Burisma, I...

    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, may have been the leading House impeachment manager, but it was Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who got the last word in a comical moment that quickly went viral on social media. Wrapping up the second day of questioning by the Senate jurors, Chief Justice John Roberts called on the House managers to answer the final question of the evening. "Could you please respond to the answer just given by the president's counsel and provide any other comments the Senate would benefit from hearing before we adjourn for the evening?" Roberts read from the card.

    Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday delivered a last-minute pitch to have witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. Schiff said that he wants one week devoted to closed-door depositions from witnesses in the trial as senators prepare to vote on the matter Friday. “I will make an offer to opposing counsel, who says this will stretch on indefinitely if you decide to have a single witness,” Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, told senators. “Let’s cabin the depositions to one week. I think we can. I think we should. I think we must,” the California Democrat added. Trump’s legal team...

    Duplicitous nature of Adam Schiff and his smirky band of Impeachers, keep trying, but fail to bring down President Trump Duplicity as described by Miriam-Webster: “its original meaning in English has to do with a kind of deception in which you intentionally hide your true feelings or intentions behind false words or actions.” Duplicity. A term often used by Head Impeacher Adam Schiff. Now, as I have at various times pointed out, Adam Schiff is essentially the poster boy for the principle of projection—accusing others of doing the thing he is doing.
