GOP Rep Lee Zeldin just ripped Adam Schiff for treating the American people like idiots during the impeachment debacle.
Pelosi did not want to do this – she is on record warning against a failed impeachment calling it divisive.
Turns out she was right as the GOP controlled Senate has circled the wagons around Trump.
They won’t vote to immediately quash the impeachment inquiry but all signs point to the GOP Senate voting to acquit Trump and keep him in office.
That will put enormous pressure on swing district Democrats as Pelosi knows too well. Worse for the Democrats is they will have to pass the new NAFTA relatively soon which will be a huge political win for Trump.
Then Pelosi and her team will have a decision to make – appear with Trump at the signing ceremony giving him another political win or boycott it and looks like sore losers. Either way, Trump wins.
From The Daily Mail:
‘Adam Schiff really does think that many Americans are idiots,’ Zeldin blasted. ‘If you remember March 22nd, 2017, he goes on another network, and he says that he has more than circumstantial evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russians.’
Zeldin continued that Schiff has failed to produce the purported ‘evidence’ ever since, adding that even former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was unable to substantiate such claims in his during his extensive investigation into Russian collusion and the Trump administration…
… Schiff was also lambasted by Zeldin Sunday for his failure to report his congressional team met with the whistleblower in private – a meeting which went on to spark the impeachment inquiry.
‘It turns out that [Schiff’s] team was in contact with the whistleblower before this person had even filed the whistleblower complaint or had even hired an attorney,’ he said, adding that he believed the facts of the case still remain in Trump’s favour.
‘He’s made claims during his opening statements and his closing statements — trying to write the world’s greatest parody… trying to connect dots that aren’t actually connected,’ Zeldin continued.
‘He’ll say something’s a firsthand truth that shouldn’t be doubted and then you dig deeper and you realize it’s actually Ambassador [William] Taylor telling us that, Tim Morrison told him that [Amb. Gordon] Sondland told Morrison – the president told Sondland, give me a break.’
Zeldin also added Congress should be passing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) US-Mexico-Canada Agreement, but instead, Schiff is more occupied ‘trying to pay off the people who put the gavel in his hand.’
