Adam Schiff and the hapless Democrats just released their big impeachment report and it is a dud. No doubt about it, they failed to move anyone in America to their side if the issue.
The polls have not moved but more importantly, we have seen more GOP support for Trump especially in the all0important Senate.
Trump does not seem worried that the GOP will break with him and the Dems seem willing to not pursue, via the courts, compelling certain key witnesses to testify.
Schiff complained about it during his press conference but did not admit Nixon and Clinton did the same – it was the courts who made people testify, not anything else.
Schiff rather than wait for the courts is rushing the impeachment and that is Trump’s fault?
In fact, during some Nixon court battles cases were sent to the Supreme Court rather quickly with one case being sent there in than two weeks. So Adam’s complaints ring as hollow as his report.
The White House agreed, calling Adam a basement blogger.
“This report reflects nothing more than their frustrations,” Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham said.
“Chairman Schiff’s report reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has released a report that outlines the findings from public hearings and closed-door interviews conducted by impeachment investigators since late September.
“The impeachment inquiry has found that President Trump, personally and acting through agents within and outside of the U.S. government, solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, to benefit his reelection,” Schiff wrote in the 300-page report.
The inquiry, formally launched in September after a whistleblower complaint, has centered on an effort to get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
“[T]he President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security,” Schiff wrote.
Republicans released their own report on Monday, arguing that Democrats had not proved “evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor.” The minority party’s prebuttal to Schiff’s summary cast the inquiry as a partisan attack on Trump.
The Intelligence Committee report triggers the next step of the impeachment process, in which the House Judiciary Committee becomes the central player.
