Adam Schiff was asked a question about one crime that had all hell breaking loose
The impeachment trial wrapped up with Senators asking questions of the House Managers and the President’s lawyers.
This portion of the trial took a shocking turn.
And that’s because Adam Schiff and the Democrats were asked a question about one crime that had all hell breaking loose.
Schiff and the Democrats centered their abuse of power charge on the fact that President Trump supposedly invited foreign interference in the 2020 election by allegedly asking the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden for corruption due to their ties to the shady energy company Burisma.
There is no evidence any of that actually happened.
But there is evidence of a Presidential campaign inviting foreigners to meddle in an election.
And during the impeachment trial a group of Republican Senators asked Schiff and his fellow House Managers to explain if they thought the Clinton campaign paying British spy Christopher Steele to gather false allegations against the Trump campaign from sources in Russia was an impeachable offense.
The Republican Senators asked, “Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired a retired foreign spy to work with Russian contacts to build a dossier of opposition research against her political opponent, Donald Trump. Under the House managers’ standard would the dossier be considered as foreign interference in a U.S. election, a violation of the law, and/or an impeachable offense?”
House Manager Hakim Jeffries claimed that was different because the Clinton’s paid for it.
“The analogy is not applicable to the present situation because first, to the extent that opposition research was obtained, it was opposition research that was purchased,” Jeffries responded.
Jeffries answer revealed that the only principle behind this impeachment sham was the fact that the Democrats would fabricate whatever crimes or evidence they needed to in order to get President Trump.
Those partisan motivations are a big reason why this hoax failed.
