Who is Adam Schiff, and how did he maneuver himself into such a position of power?
It goes back to when the House impeached President Bill Clinton, he was then acquitted by the Senate in 1998-1999 for perjury and obstruction of justice. The Clintons were stung, and together with their loyal pack of political operatives, made it a priority to defeat the Republicans House impeachment managers in the 2000 elections.
The California Republican Rep. James Rogan was one of their main targets; he had been instrumental in the Clinton impeachment proceedings.
Adam Schiff became the Clintons hatchet man and ran against Rogan.
President Bill Clinton ran a fundraiser in Washington for Schiff. This was something pretty much unheard of—For a sitting president to host a fundraiser for a single congressional candidate who is not an incumbent, reported Fox News. It became known as the most expensive House race ever.
MSM went crazy, with headlines like: “Democrats hit Rogan to avenge Clinton.”
Now, 20 years on Adam Schiff is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and his political benefactors—the Clintons, are still seeking revenge, refusing to let the past stay in the past.
Schiff’s refusal to conduct a transparent inquiry into the president’s impeachment, keeping Republicans and the president out of the loop, could be something he may live to regret.
The American public has the right to know the details. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) spoke with Fox News on Oct. 19 and expressed his opinion on the impeachment proceedings, “When I watch the House impeachment proceedings, I’m both perplexed and appalled,” he said. “Here is what I hear Nancy Pelosi and Chairman Schiff saying to the American people: ‘You’re stupid, and we’re smart. You’re so stupid, you can’t govern yourselves.’ I hear them saying, ‘You’re so stupid that you chose President Trump over Secretary Clinton, and we’ve got to fix it for you,'” he added.
There is nothing more serious than the impeachment of a president, and the American people are entitled to be fully informed. To deny them the right is to fly in the face of danger.
When a 30-strong group of Republican lawmakers stormed the private impeachment proceedings against President Trump, demanding transparency, Adam Schiff—picked up his coat tails and ran for cover.
The Republicans, led by Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, spoke to reporters before attempting to rush through the doors.
“We’re going to try and go in there, and we’re going to try to figure out what’s going on, on behalf of the millions of Americans that we represent that want to see this Congress working for them and not obsess with attacking a president who we believe has not done anything to deserve impeachment,” Gaetz said.
President Trump questioned in a tweet last month whether Schiff should be arrested for treason, after he characterized his phone call on July 25 to President Zelenskiy, as a“classic organized-crime shakedown.”
Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?
