Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) just made bribery charges. The White House is stunned — he leveled a major accusation against President Trump without any proof whatsoever.
Appearing on NPR’s ‘Morning Edition’ program, Schiff said that “there are any number of potentially impeachable offenses, including bribery, including high crimes and misdemeanors.”
“The basic allegations against the president are that he sought foreign interference in a U.S. election, that he conditioned official acts on the performance of these political favors,” Schiff continued.
The anti-Trump lawmaker is speaking, of course, about Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian president. But as it’s already been established: The ‘controversial’ phone call contains zero controversy.
