House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff threw a temper tantrum on Sunday and claimed that the United States “can’t survive another four years” of President Donald Trump in office.
During an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos began by playing a clip of Trump telling a crowd in Florida last week that Democrats are helping his chances of winning re-election in 2020.
This sent Schiff over the edge.
“That’s not going to happen and I don’t think this country could survive another four years of a president like this who gets up every day trying to find new and inventive ways to divide us,” Schiff began.
“He doesn’t seem to understand that a fundamental aspect of his job is to try to make us a more perfect union. But that’s not at all where he’s coming from,” he added.
Schiff continued, “And he’s going to be defeated,” he continued. “He has to be defeated because I don’t know how much more our democratic institutions can take of this kind of attack on the rule of law.”
If anything, Americans can’t take another four years of Schiff’s baseless conspiracy theories.
The California Democrat has claimed for over two years to have “evidence” that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
But when pressed on that “evidence” and revealing it to the public, Schiff squirmed in his seat and flat-out refused to provide it last month.
During an interview on Fox News, host Chris Wallace asked Schiff about the dossier that was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
Wallace asked if the dossier, which still has not been verified after nearly two and a half years, was actually part of a “Russian disinformation” campaign against Trump.
“Don’t you think the question of exactly how this investigation began, was it a Russian disinformation campaign to try to get — since they were trying to set Americans against each other, not only to tarnish Hillary Clinton, but also to tarnish Donald Trump — isn’t that a legitimate source of an investigation?” Wallace asked.
Schiff sidestepped the question and deflected.
“Chris, you know, the reality is that the Republicans on our committee spent two years investigating exactly that because, frankly, they weren’t that interested in what Russia had done, the systemic attack on our democracy,” said Schiff. “They spent the focus of their two years investigating the investigators and investigating exactly that question.”
“Shouldn’t you be looking at that just to find the truth?” Wallace fired back.
Schiff deflected again, and instead argued that the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives would be looking into “the counterintelligence findings that were the genesis of this investigation.”
Wallace asked Schiff three times about what evidence he had to prove collusion — and the California Democrats deflected every single time.
Schiff doesn’t have any evidence of collusion or he would have leaked it to the media a long time ago.
And more importantly, he deflected so many times because the Mueller report clearly states that there’s no evidence that Trump colluded or obstructed justice.
During his press conference last week, Attorney General William Barr reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
After a two year probe, Trump has not been charged with a single crime — which is clearly not sitting well with Little Adam Schiff.
