Schiff: Trump ‘Guilty’ If My Demand for New Witnesses Rejected, Gets Torched

Adam Schiff (D-CA) is being dishonest with the Americans people as he demands new witnesses and evidence to be introduced into the impeachment trial. Schiff said denying him new witnesses “will merely prove the Senate guilty of working with the president to obstruct the truth from coming out.” That’s when poor Adam got torched with his own actions coming back to bite him. You’ll love this.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff argued on Tuesday that a refusal by the Senate to agree to Democrats’ demand to allow new witnesses and evidence in the impeachment trial without a vote would deem President Donald Trump guilty regardless of the verdict.

In other words, if the Republican-led Senate does not carry out the impeachment trial the way the Democrats want, Trump will be considered guilty even if the upper chamber acquits him. A guilty verdict in the Senate would remove Trump from office.

Schiff told reporters:

If the Senate and the senate leadership … will not allow the calling of witnesses or the presentation of documents, If [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell makes this the first impeachment trial in history without witnesses or documents, it will not prove the president innocent. It will merely prove the Senate guilty of working with the president to obstruct the truth from coming out, so I do think that by structuring the trial this way, it furthers our case that what’s going on here really is a cover-up of evidence to the American people.

Adam Schiff is lying to the American people, and the Democrats are hoping you don’t find out the truth.

What Americans need to know is this was a defect that Nancy Pelosi introduced when she failed to follow the Constitution. Pelosi never called a full House vote to commence the impeachment inquiry.

“The primary reason Adam Schiff has to make this ridiculous effort for more evidence— is because the House never established their ability to enforce subpoenas via ‘Judicial Enforcement Authority.’ The failure of a full House vote to authorize the House Judiciary Committee to pursue evidence -via enforceable subpoenas- was a defect by design of Nancy Pelosi’s decision to initiate an impeachment inquiry by her decree, not an authorizing vote,” Conservative Treehouse reports. 

The House was not issuing subpoenas, it was issuing letters requesting voluntary witness participation and document production. Recently, the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel explained this issue in a lengthy legal finding that leads to the same conclusion.

“There was NO VOTE to create that level of subpoena power. As a consequence, the House did not create a process to penetrate the constitutionally inherent separation of powers, and/or, the legally recognized firewall known as ‘executive privilege,'” CTH tweets.

“Absent a penalty for non-compliance, which factually makes a subpoena a ‘subpoena’, the Executive Branch had no process to engage an appellate review by federal courts. This was not accidental. This was the purposeful trick within the Pelosi/Lawfare road-map,” CTH tweets.

Why did Nancy Pelosi and her anti-Trump attorneys avoid getting subpoena power? 

Their impeachment case is so flawed they knew it would not stand up to judicial review, and they also knew the impeachment process was destined by design to end up running head-first into a Constitutional problem; specifically the separation of power and executive privilege.

The media went along with Speaker Pelosi’s scheme and refused to ask the right questions. Now, Americans are realizing that Adam Schiff’s bogus rhetoric about his need for new witnesses and evidence is just a ploy. If the Democrats’ case in the House was so airtight that they impeached the president based on the evidence they had, then why is Schiff screaming about new witnesses?

Americans aren’t buying it one bit. They see the Schiff show is just continuing where it left off. 

“Are they really implying people don’t realize they’re going to blame Trump no matter what happens? It’s been three years of this. We get it,” tweeted “Beef Stroganoff.”

“I’m so sick of hearing Schiff talk about everything they have to do now that they didn’t do in the House. November can’t get here fast enough – we need a total change!” tweeted Mary Decker.

“This loon STILL doesn’t get that half of America (or even more since this one-sided political stunt began) would double-check their watches if he announced the time, since he’s proven he’ll lie about absolutely ANYTHING so long as it sets up an anti-Trump diatribe,” tweeted “Amendment One.”

The Democrats’ case against Trump was weak and they knew the courts would never sever Executive Privilege. Thus, they avoided the courts altogether. 

And what did Trump ever get from fully complying with the Mueller investigation? The president refused his right to assert Executive Privilege and handed over thousands and thousands of pages of documents. He even allowed his own attorney and advisors to testify. Then, after Mueller found no crime, no collusion, how did the Democrats repay him?

By bringing new bogus charges of this ridiculous Ukraine phone call and trying to impeach him anyway. That’s another reason why Trump decided to assert his rights and make the Democrats work for it this time around.

So, when you hear all of this fuss about new evidence, it’s a mess the Democrats made for themselves. They never had any evidence that President Donald Trump did anything wrong, and that’s why Pelosi had to play it fast and loose in fabricating this entire scam. The Senate should move to acquit and get back to doing their damn jobs. Enough time and money have been wasted. Americans are watching, and the Democrats are slowly falling apart once again.
