One example of a coward is someone who can dish it out but can’t take it. As a career prosecutor and congressional persecutor, Adam Schiff has presided over one of the most cowardly, shameful, and partisan attacks on any President in our country’s history.
Now that Schiff’s parade of witnesses have demonstrated they had no direct knowledge of any supposed quid pro quo, and Schiff released his report recommending the filing of articles of impeachment against the President—as if he hadn’t already decided to do this before he called a single witness.
Schiff handed over the reins over to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and it was his turn to preen, pose, and pontificate over how President Trump has endangered our democracy.
It’s all so staged and predictable. The White House said it wanted no part of Nadler’s obviously biased hearing. Republicans were still denied witnesses and only given five days notice to prepare an adequate defense. President Trump rightly said “No Thank You!”
Adam Schiff isn’t getting off scott free for his uppity performance. In fact, he could face a dose of his own medicine. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has a different take on how the wheels of justice must turn. The Senate wants direct, firsthand knowledge of wrongdoing. Senator Graham needs to hear from Adam Schiff’s whistleblower.
Also, Senator Graham would love to hear directly from Schiff. Said the Senator, “One of the witnesses will be Adam Schiff because if he, in fact, did meet with the whistleblower, and coached the guy up, I think that’s relevant to the impeachment inquiry itself.”
Schiff has repeatedly said that he doesn’t even know the name of the whistleblower. He first denied any contact with the whistleblower and then admitted that “his staff” worked with the secondhand snitch to get some authentic legalese verbiage incorporated into the written complaint.
From the outset, hearsay has been the hallmark of the Democrat’s campaign against the President. Not a single witness in Schiff’s impeachment show could say they had direct knowledge of any quid pro quo.
In truth, the only thing all of the witnesses made clear was that they didn’t like the way their boss’s boss was running the show. How dare he put pressure on another world leader to do something that would benefit our country!
The bottom line is that hearsay cannot be a valid basis for an impeachment trial. Adam Schiff, according to Senator Graham is a material witness. There is evidence that he and his cronies orchestrated the process to a predetermined outcome.
Schiff, like a schoolyard bully backing down from a fight, said he “sees no reason to testify.” The very idea “was frivolous.” Said Schiff, “If the Senate wants to call me as a witness, then they pretty much made the decision not to take this process seriously. All I can relate is what the witnesses said in deposition and in the open hearings, and that’s no reason to call me as a witness.”
(For the record, the Democrat side of the process was scripted questions where the coached witnesses merely had to answer “yes” or further explain why they disliked President Trump.)
Of course, Adam Schiff doesn’t want to testify before a Republican-dominated Senate. He would have to face the scathing examination of Lindsey Graham and others. He would have to deny that he coached the whistleblower to write up the complaint his committee intended to investigate.
In any event, if called to testify, cowardly corrupt Schiff won’t have his gavel and prosecutorial powers to protect him. The Senate has a higher standard of proof than fake whistle blowing and disloyal State Department whiners.
