House Intelligence Chair and lead on the impeachment trial Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) has reached right into Donald Trump’s mind and given it a sound shaking. Schiff has shown himself to be a mighty contender and shines across the decades and centuries of other impeachment trials. Trump tried one of his tweet take-downs. Did he fail? You be the judge.
The president has been used to controlling events and people around him. Yet, he could not control Schiff Wednesday as the representative gave a brilliant opening statement. For once in his life, POTUS may have more than met his match.
Trump managed to keep a straight face when he called Schiff a liar. That was rich given his 16,000+ lies over these past three years:
‘“Schiff doesn’t have a case telling the truth, so he’s manufacturing things.” Rush Limbaugh @foxandfriends’
‘“There is no evidence of a crime.” Robert Charles, Fmr Asst Secy of State. The crimes were committed by the other side!’
‘Attorney Generals from 21 States are urging the Senate to reject Impeachment. They say the Articles have legal & factual problems, and the Democrats case sets a dangerous historical precedent. “EVEN AN UNSUCCESSFUL EFFORT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT UNDERMINES THE INTEGRITY….’
‘….OF THE 2020 ELECTION BECSUSE (sic) IT WEAPONIZES A PROCESS THAT SHOULD ONLY BE INITIATED IN EXCEEDINGLY RARE CIRCUMSTANCES, AND SHOULD NEVER BE USED FOR PARTISAN PURPOSES.”@HeatherChilders @FoxNews The Democrats are trying hard to damage Republicans prior to the Election!’
‘In an Impeachment, you can’t use a work of fiction as the theory for the case, filling in gaps with presumptions against the President. It was a weak presentation, self indulgent, & he didn’t deliver the goods.” Robert Charles,@HeatherChilders @FoxNews’
‘The Democrat House would not give us lawyers, or not one witness, but now demand that the Republican Senate produce the witnesses that the House never sought, or even asked for? They had their chance, but pretended to rush. Most unfair & corrupt hearing in Congressional history!’
‘No matter what you give to the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, it will never be enough!’
‘The Democrats & Shifty Schiff, whose presentation to the Senate was loaded with lies and misrepresentations, are refusing to state that the Obama Administration withheld aid from many countries including Ukraine, Pakistan, Philippines, Egypt, Honduras, & Mexico. Witch Hunt!’
‘Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard….’
‘….during his hopeless “presidential” campaign. They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these “clowns” because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all – and he will be right!’
