Adam Schiff said eight words that just cost the Democrats impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tapped Adam Schiff to serve as the lead prosecutor on the team of House Managers trying the case in the Senate to remove President Trump.
That decision backfired in spectacular fashion.
And Adam Schiff said eight words that just cost the Democrats impeachment.
The Fake News Media is claiming Adam Schiff is the breakout star of the Senate impeachment trial.
Pundits are speculating that Schiff will use the love and adoration fake news reporters are showering upon him to run for Senator from California or even make a bid for Speaker of the House when Nancy Pelosi eventually retires.
But while Schiff is now a folk hero on the Left, his actual words reveal him to be a shameless liar and partisan hack.
And Schiff’s role as the public face of impeachment is one of the key factors that led to the Democrats defeat.
Schiff is walking a tightrope.
As part of the Democrats strategy Schiff needs to boast that the case is airtight to keep Republicans from moving to immediately dismiss the articles of impeachment and at the same time Schiff also needs to make the case for more witness testimony to drag this trial out.
Schiff took a mighty tumble from his balancing act when during the trial Schiff conceded the Senate couldn’t rely on the case the House Democrats put together to be the result of a complete investigation.
Under question from Senators, Schiff claimed Senators simple could not “rely on what was investigated in the House” and they must call new witnesses beginning with former National Security Advisor John Bolton.
Schiff’s admission that the House’s case was unreliable and incomplete only added to the momentum behind Republican’s push to block additional witnesses and move to acquit President Trump.
