Rep. Adam Schiff really has some nerve. The California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee — one of the most powerful panels in Congress — just issued an ‘impeachment alert’ and it’s sickening.
On ABC’s ‘This Week’ program, Schiff commented on the Mueller report and said Democrats “need to consider that remedy” of impeaching Trump if it shows “overwhelming evidence of criminality” — despite zero evidence of ‘collusion’ with Russia.
In short, this simply means that Schiff and his fellow Democrats are going to keep pushing the false narrative as long as possible. They’ve made a cynical political calculation that if they ride negativity all the way to November 2020, they win.
But not so fast. Americans won’t stand for it. Even fake news outlets like CNN and MSNBC had to admit that Mueller didn’t find any evidence of Trump or his campaign colluding with Russia to affect the 2016 election. It’s over. Everything else is commentary.
Still, this won’t stop the Democrats. Donald Trump Jr. recognized as much over the weekend, saying “it’s clear that the Collusion Truthers in the media and the Democrat Party are only going to double down on their sick and twisted conspiracy theories moving forward.”
For now, the talking point for Schiff and the Democrats appears to be whether there’s “overwhelming evidence on the obstruction issue.” Good luck with that. Attorney General William Barr has cleared Trump of any such crime. Game over.
