Adam Schiff Threatens To Take Drastic Measures Against Administration

In the push to completely discredit the President Donald Trump administration and all progress the good people that make up the group are doing, Democrats are appearing on television, be it during committee hearings or on programming sympathetic to their cause, and spouting all sorts of nonsense about how they are going to go about silencing various people who “obstruct” their oversight.

On Thursday, it was Adam Schiff’s turn, the wide-eyed representative from California, to invoke some sort of rule that hasn’t been used since the 1930s, apparently. He told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow all about it while he was complaining about the Trump people ignoring House Democrats’ demands for evidence so that they can impeach the president even if that evidence has to be somehow manufactured since it does not seem to exist. He’s calling it “overcoming obstructionism” as if there is a crime involved.

Here’s the part that is particularly ridiculous.

REP. ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA): You know, the remedies that we have are the same as the Judiciary Committee and the same as the Ways And Means Committee. They’re violating the statute, we can enforce it in court but that takes time.

That really doesn’t necessarily change in an impeachment proceeding where they can fight us likewise but there is another remedy that I think we really need to consider that maybe even quicker than an impeachment proceeding or the court proceeding and that is reviving Congress’ inherent power of contempt, something we utilize up until the 1930s where we in effect do our own judicial proceeding in the Congress, have a little mini-trial in the Congress and hold people in contempt and responsible and compel their production without even going to court. Now, it used to be we imprisoned people but we could also fine them $25,000 a day until they comply or some other number. That may be an even swifter remedy if we need to embark on it and we may have to.

Wait, so Schiff wants to bring back tossing the people who won’t cough up information redacted by law in jail for doing what is legal.

And the Democrats wonder why the American people really do consider them out of their minds.


  1. Maybe we need a law where all biological males that serve in the Senate, House of Reps, and Presidency must pass a testosterone test and possess a man card – that would solve he problem of all the “girly-men” representation we’re getting from our male Congressmen and Senators.

  2. Re: “for what is legal.”

    Well, if they hold a trial in the US Congress and find you guilty of contempt of Congress obviously you are not doing something that is legal.

    • So what is the contempt since thr report is out and has been released but the Dems choose not to read it

  3. It just make’s me laugh how scared to death and desperate the Democrat’s are right now because they may have to pay for their corruption and lies over the past 12 years. Pelosi looks like she’s ready to drop at any minute. I don’t think she is sleeping or eating much lately. They all act like little 5 year olds having temper tantrums because they can’t get their way. They keep coming up with far fetched idea’s how to stop Trump and Barr and nothing works. It’s truly priceless to watch 🙂

  4. WHY isn’t ‘shifty’ schiff throwing Mueller in jail??? For all the “proof” that ‘shifty’ says he had/has, & Mueller did not find/use….
