If the polls and television ratings are anything to go by, the American people aren’t paying attention to the Adam Schiff Show on Capitol Hill, also known as “The Impeachment Hearings.” Plain and simple, you’d think if the president was being accused of a crime, and the House of Representatives was trying to figure out whether or not to charge him with it, the entire nation would be riveted.
It worked in the 1970s.
Well, this time, it isn’t working, and Rep. Adam Schiff over the weekend appeared on Meet the Press to try and shore up some sort of respectability when it comes to the flop he was managing.
And then NBC’s Chuck Todd decided to ask him about what would happen if the House actually did vote to pass Articles of Impeachment, and the trial got underway in the Senate, as House Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell has threatened to do, jumping in with both feet.
Chuck Todd: You should be a witness. They may want to call you.
“Well, look. If the Senate wants to call me as a witness, then they pretty much made the decision not to take this process seriously. I’m not a fact witness. I was the chairman of one of the committees doing the investigation. I’m not in the shoes of a special counsel. I don’t work for the Justice Department. All I can relate is what the witnesses said in the deposition and in the open hearings. And that’s no reason to call me as a witness.”
Due to his coordination and contact with whistleleaker Eric Ciaramella, Adam Schiff is a fact witness.
What Schiff doesn’t realize is that hardly anyone BUT the Senate is taking this process seriously. As the hearings went on, and the American people learned more and more about Ukrainian elections, a gas company called Burisma, and former Vice President Joe Biden’s son’s involvement with it in exchange for favors and a whole lot of money. Any trial in the Senate is going to further expose that and much more.
