Adam Schiff just admitted the biggest failure of his life
Adam Schiff feared this day would come.
The House Intelligence Committee Chairman dedicated the last year to ending Donald Trump’s Presidency.
But now Adam Schiff just admitted the biggest failure of his life.
During the impeachment witch hunt Democrats promised this was not a political stunt and that they would continue to produce reams of evidence after the trial that would prove Donald Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors.
That was a lie.
After the Democrats impeachment gambit ended in a humiliating defeat Democrats shelved their long promised investigations after polls showed Trump’s approval numbers rising as Americans judged the Democrats harassment of the President as overreach.
POLITICO’s Kyle Cheney – who critics accuse of being a stenographer for Adam Schiff and a Russian collusion conspiracy theorist – noted that officials Democrats claimed were central to the Ukraine quid pro quo testified before Congress did not get asked any questions about the freeze on security assistance that launched the impeachment hoax.
“When one witness to the Ukraine scandal, White House budget chief Russ Vought, came before the House Budget Committee earlier this month, no Democrats asked him about why millions of dollars in aid were withheld from Ukraine, even though he had defied a House Intelligence Committee subpoena to testify in November,” Cheney wrote.
“And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo faced questions from the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Friday about coronavirus and the administration handling of Iran policy, but no Democrats inquired about Ukraine, despite Pompeo defying demands for documents from House impeachment investigators last year,” Cheney added.
This performance proved that Schiff and other Democrats were never serious about their impeachment allegations.
Had Democrats been concerned about getting to the truth – as they claimed – they would have kept up their oversight and questioned Vought and Pompeo.
But they didn’t.
That’s because they were itching from day one to impeach the President and they thought the freeze on Ukrainian security assistance provided them the political safe ground to try and remove the President and overturn an election.
Once the fake Ukraine scandal turned in to a political loser the Democrats dropped it as quickly as they could and moved on.
