Schiff: If You Don’t Convict Trump He Might Give Alaska Back to Russia
Poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
President Donald Trump has literally broken Rep. Adam Schiff. I’ve enjoyed the House managers, especially Rep. Zoe Lofgren, but Schiff foams at the mouth and rants like a lunatic.
In his closing statement, Schiff made up a whole bunch of unlikely scenarios to scare the Senate into convicting Trump.
Adam Schiff argues that under claim a non-criminal action is not impeachable, Pres. Trump could "offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election, or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country." https://t.co/AIOZG9NwS9 pic.twitter.com/RVJZsuYgpt

I’m sorry. I cannot hold back anymore. Schiff honestly sounds like he wants to be a martyr. This isn’t about Trump. This isn’t about Ukraine. This is all about Schiff getting his 15 minutes of fame.
Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014. I remember getting on members of both parties to support Ukraine. Do you know who was largely silent? Democrats. Schiff wanted the Obama administration to be cautious and not have a tough response against Russia even as Russia annexed Crimea!
Remember when Russia blew up the passenger airline over Ukraine? They killed almost 300 innocent civilians. Loud silence and cowardness from the Democrats, including Schiff.
None of them ever gave a damn about Ukraine until Trump defeated their precious Hillary Clinton.
If you have to use made-up scenarios to prove your point you have already lost. Trump will give Russia Alaska? He will move to Florida and let his son-in-law rule? Trump will also allow Kushner to decide whether we go to war or not! Give me a break.
Basically, if the Senate doesn’t convict Trump then he will eat your babies.
The arrogance that seeps from Schiff’s pores gleamed in the camera as he told the senators that if they agree with the House’s case, but acquits their “name will be tied to his with a cord of steel – and for all of history.”
Schiff did speak one truth, believe it or not. He said that “[H]istory will not be kind to Donald Trump.” It won’t because we have seen evidence that leftists fill the academic wing with the loudest voices.
Listen to how he ended his swan song. The sun will rise again!
Rep. Adam Schiff concludes his closing argument: “It may be midnight in Washington—but the sun will rise again. I put my faith in the optimism of the Founders. You should too.” https://t.co/lCrIAfTgkR pic.twitter.com/ES6FjxjOjs

Just when you think they can’t be even more outrageous,,,,,
“Watch out for Flying Schiff!”
I’m hoping when Trump’s re-elected in November, he once again loses the “popular vote” to see how crazy the left can get when it happens again.
He’s angling for a gig at The Onion, right?
Is he really… gone?
Exactly why I have paid attention to approximately 1% or less of this joke.
I listened to Dershowitz because the history fascinated me!
It used to be that people who ranted & raved like Schiff were confined to facilities for the insane.
First they dis Murkowski and then this….
However, IF the Progs do take over the country Alaska may want to rejoin Russia. It won’t be Trump doing it .. but Schiff and Co!
Oh how I love the Left now finding out about their faith in the Founders. The Sun arose again for the US in 2016, and hopefully will set for the Dems in November.
” I put my faith in the optimism of the Founders. You should too.”
The founders showed great wisdom, and they are now squirming in their graves. I have no doubt that the founders, one and all, would dismiss Schiffless as a useless idiot.
Yes. The Founders have made it nearly impossible for the Schiff flinger and his Schiff changers to succeed in their great evil.
The only way we would offer Alaska to Russia is if Schiff and all of his idiot friends hopped on a piece of it and we partitioned them away from all of the valuable parts. Then, Russia can have him and the iceberg he floats away on.
Does this crazy man have any opposition in November?
I think I had heard some celebrity was challenging for his seat, but his district has to be nearly as insane as he is to have sent him to the House.
Dr Drew is challenging him due to health crises in his district.
Says he will run as a Democrat ,but Dr Drew has always had conservative views on things.
Rants like a lunatic? Schiff is a lunatic. One that needs to be committed to a mental hygiene institution and heavily medicated. He’s gone off the deep end of sanity and needs an intervention before he hurts himself or others with his lunatic ranting and raving.
And schumer said of schiff’s argument that it was the best he’d ever heard in the senate.
So reserve a room with two beds, unless it’s co ed, then nancy can join them.
Someone should demand that he produce the evidence of Trump Russian collusion that he told us he possessed!
I saw somewhere that Barbara Streisand thought Schiff would make an excellent president, LOL. Babs, Schiff won’t even get to park cars ever at the White House 🙂
Babs is still alive?
My Goodness, she must be like 119 years old by now!
Schiff has been showing he is truly mentally broken with reality for at least since Trump was elected. He lied over and over again about having proof against President Trump during the Herr Mueller attempted coup effort. Produced nothing, and everything he said then was a lie.
This is really a psychotic individual.
One positive note from Schiff’s latest insane theory is that Alaska may become overpopulated with leftists because they will think they will become Russians. Bernie will become governor and THEN Trump can sell Alaska back to the Russians.
Better idea: sell the Ruskies California! Ivan needs a warm place to vacation, they have Leftist policies already. Made in heaven.
As long as Las Vegas goes with it. Let California lite on our southern border eat borscht, too.
Well, he does make a good point. If we were to take seriously the claim that a president may only be removed for actual crimes, then a president could do the things he suggests — offer US territory to a foreign country, or unofficially retire and delegate the government to someone else — without recourse. Indeed, outlandish as it sounds, a president might even send a planeload of cash to a terrorist regime that is involved in attacks on US forces, knowing full well what they’re likely to do with it.
However nobody seriously thinks that a president may only be removed for actual crimes, and if any president were to do anything like that they would be impeached and removed. At least, if they were Republican. If they were Democrat, not so much.
But Trump can’t legally do the things Schiff mentioned. They’re not crimes, but they are not within his powers either. Determining the foreign policy goals of the US (withholding aide for an investigation into corruption involving a high-ranking US official and his son) and determining the national security policy (how to balance aide to Ukraine against anti-corruption initiatives) are within his authority. Disagreement with a president’s policy goals and how he manages them are not impeachable offenses precisely because they’re within his authority.
He could legally “retire” and let someone else make the decisions for him. And he could legally negotiate a treaty with Russia to give them Alaska back, though to implement it would require the consent not only of 2/3 of the senate but also of the Alaskan legislature.
But he’s not at all likely to do any of these things.
Donald J Trump is living rent free in this guys head. He literally began this fiasco by reading a false transcript of the phone call into the record and now he’s closing it out with a false narrative. What an embarrassment.
Remember that Adam Schiff started this whole circus by saying that the whistleblower had revealed that President Trump made outrageous threats to the Ukrainian president, explicitly demanding the announcement of a corruption investigation into the Bidens.
President Trump quickly proved that was false — with absolutely no impact at all on the trajectory of the impeachment.
It’s poetic that it should end the way it began, with mendacious histrionics from Schiff.
Schiff is up for so many awards:
– the Hank Johnson award
– the Maxine Waters award
– the Sheila Jackson Lee award
I say we give him all three.
Interesting, isn’t it? Along with their newfound reverence for the Founders, leftist rhetoric now embraces the kind of over-the-top slippery slope argument they’ve always accused conservatives of making.
Why isn’t anyone asking that Schiff submit to a mental examination? Those statements are some far-out, paranoid stuff–next thing you know, he’ll be declaring himself Napoleon and declaring war on England.
I second this Motion!
Is this Schiff’s campaign song???? Snark.
Napoleon XIV: ‘They’re coming to take me away’
Unfortunately Lil Adam Schiffstirrer is my very own Congressman. He got into Congress in an interesting way. He replaced Republican James Rogan (house floor manager in the Clinton impeachment proceedings) in 2000. At the time it was the most expensive campaign contest for a House seat in history. The Dems really wanted to punish Rogan–and did.
20 years down the road, the Democrats have solidly gerrymandered the state, and it’s not probable that Schiff could be ousted by a Republican challenger. We’re stuck with Schiff On A Shoe until he retires or gets elected to the Senate.
Recently I return often to the question of whether Schiff for Brains is pure evil, a pathological liar or simply needs to be institutionalized for his own good. Is he simply a nutcase who could not recognize the truth if it bit him, or pathological and can’t tell the truth even if he would be best served by the truth. I think the latter.
That being said, this was pretty damned funny! But we can’t forget the clown is also very dangerous.
Maybe Trump oughta give Guam away, since it’s going to tip over anyway.
You can’t cure stupid.
(Then, there’s aways Baltimore and SF . . . consolation prizes)
How does one obtain an involuntary commitment order for one that is truly in need of psychiatric help?
You go down to the local police station and ask for the paperwork for an “IEA” (Involuntary Emergency Admission) – a 72 hour psych evaluation and drug monitoring. Another way is to call the local mental health center and ask to speak with the Emergency Response Team.
In Florida, it is called the Baker Act. Just let a police office see that he is a danger to himself or others. The police and the psychiatrists handle all the paperwork for you.
When Schiff talks about “the Founders,” I assume that he means Lenin and Trotsky.
Or Marx and Engels.
Or Robespierre and the Jacobins.
The only thing they like about the American Founders is Jefferson’s “All men are created equal” — which they fail to understand was simply a rejection of the divine right of kings and not an endorsement of their radical egalitarianism.
I have to admit, if somebody listening to Schiff’s speech did not know anything about the facts of the case, they might be convinced that Trump is indeed Doctor Evil.
Thankfully, the American electorate is… um…
Possibly the stupidest comment yet from this pencil neck. And yet some of the brainwashed leftist zombies would a actually believe this and repeat it!
All I can say is Tom Shillue as Adam Schiff is a better Adam Schiff than Adam Schiff. Tom especially gets the rosacea, the crazy eyes, and the lack of self-awareness.
Give schiff to an undertaker. Any undertaker.
Sarah Palin wouldn’t let him!
At what point do these publicly uttered statements on the part of an elected official become actionable as a demonstration of Functional Insanity?
Insanity that makes it impossible for the afflicted individual to carry out their Oath of Office and therefore must lead to the removal and sequestration of the one afflicted for treatment of the underlying mental disorders?
