Adam Schiff just won’t let it go, will he?
The democratic lawmaker is hellbent on somehow, for some reason, impeaching Donald Trump. Maybe it’s the insults hurled his way via Twitter, or perhaps his undying belief that his political legacy will be cemented on his ability to “resist” Donald Trump. (If that’s the case, he and CNN’s Jim Acosta should form a club dedicated to getting famous for opposing the President).
From the very onset of the RussiaGate conspiracy theory investigation, Schiff has been read to impeach the President. It’s possible that the “I” word has come out of his mouth more often than anyone else in the legislative branch, and he’s done so with incredible stubbornness. No matter what pieces of evidence rise to the surface, or how vehemently the rest of his party’s leadership rebukes him, Schiff has been sputtering on and on about beginning the process of impeachment.
Now, as Robert Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill failed to incite an impeachment uprising, neither among politicians or the public, Schiff is taking a new route, claiming that President Trump’s unwillingness to allow members of his staff to testify before Congress is itself an impeachable offense.
During a Sunday appearance on NBC…
Schiff said, “He is violating a different provision of the Constitution by obstructing the Congress in its lawful and constitutional duty. That would not be a crime, that would be a misdemeanor. And the founders had a different idea of what misdemeanor meant. It’s not a lesser crime, but it’s demeaning the office. And I think violating the separation of powers would be such a misdemeanor. So this is why I say the President is doing everything he can to push us into an impeachment because if we can’t get adequate answers from the court in time, that in itself will be an impeachable offense.”
Schiff then attempted to hit the President with an ultimatum, stating that Congress would either get the “answers” they needed, or Trump will have obstructed them so thoroughly that impeachment will be necessary.
We’ll just have to wait and see how far threatening President Trump gets Schiff.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
