With the dawning of the new year and the new Congress, Rep. Adam Schiff suddenly went from being a poseur with way too much television time to a lawmaker with real power in Washington. This weaselly Democrat has vowed to make the most of his newfound power, promising to swamp President Trump in investigation after investigation. And seeing as how he now controls the levers of power on the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has the authority to do just that. Insisting that the years-long investigation that this committee already completed was not sufficient, Schiff is determined to do it all over again, simply for the sake of making life hell for the president (and giving Democrats all the more ammunition to use in 2020, natch).
To kick it all off, Schiff gave an interview to AmericaBlog, in which he lied straight through his teeth.
“There is ample evidence on the issue of collusion,” Schiff said, absurdly. “The question of whether it rises to the level of proof beyond a reasonable doubt as to a criminal conspiracy is a different question, and one that ultimately Bob Mueller will have to answer. And that even may not be answered completely if the Justice Department takes the position, which I think is flawed, that you can’t indict a sitting President.
“This is the challenge, in that the country is so stovepiped now in how it gets it’s information,” Schiff continued. “Now, it’s very difficult to break through and help people see what’s right before their eyes. But these secret discussions to make money from Russia during the campaign that the president and his organization were having, that Paul Manafort was having with his Russian contacts, at the same time the Russians clearly wanted something from Donald Trump and his campaign in the form of sanctions release, all goes to the issue of collusion, all goes to the issue of conspiracy, and you really have to be willfully blind not to see just how alarming this is.”
We’re particularly fond of Schiff’s complaint in the second paragraph, where he laments the fact that not everyone is getting their information from MSNBC or the New York Slimes. If Rachel Maddow could just sit down with everyone in the country and explain what’s going on, why, we wouldn’t be IN THIS MESS!
All we can say is THANK GOD there are legitimate alternative news sources that can highlight the truth about the left’s war against conservatives, Republicans, and Donald Trump. It is only through the existence of these channels of information that we have been able to keep America from going straight down the toilet. It is only through these outlets that we can understand that Adam Schiff is a baldfaced liar who wants to overturn an American election with schemes, investigations, and innuendo.
Take solace, though. There is a note of desperation in the way these Democrats talk about Trump. It smells strangely familiar. It smells like…four more years.
