Sen. Graham Roasts Schiff In Realtime After He Just Contradicted Himself While Speaking With Reporters

by Paul Goldberg

Senator Graham was on fire Tuesday while he was listening to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) speak on the Senate floor. In realtime, he torched Schiff over his statements being made before the Senate which even contradicted what he had just said to reporters.

Before coming into the Senate to speak Schiff told reporters that if the Republicans in the Senate do not follow the rules of the impeachment trial the way Democrats want them to then Trump is guilty no matter what. Meaning if the Republicans don’t find President Trump guilty and remove him from office he’s still guilty.

Schiff said:

If the Senate and the senate leadership … will not allow the calling of witnesses or the presentation of documents, If [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell makes this the first impeachment trial in history without witnesses or documents, it will not prove the president innocent. It will merely prove the Senate guilty of working with the president to obstruct the truth from coming out, so I do think that by structuring the trial this way, it furthers our case that what’s going on here really is a cover-up of evidence to the American people.

McConnell has said that the resolution outlining the rules of impeachment is a fair process however, Schiff says unless Republicans will allow new evidence and witnesses the process is unfair and Trump is guilty.

What McConnell and other Senators like Lindsey Graham have criticized House Democrats claiming that nobody told them they had to impeach the President quickly and could have waited for new evidence. It’s not the Senate’s job to investigate they are the court. 

This brings us to Schiff’s speech on the Senate floor today and as he was whining about fairness, Senator Graham said this…

And other Republicans pounced…

Senator Graham isn’t wrong, Schiff has a lot of nerve asking for a fair trial when guilty is the only acceptable verdict. Nothing Schiff or Pelosi has done has been fair and I think Republicans going out of their way to use the Clinton impeachment rules is being too nice. This whole impeachment nonsense should be dismissed immediately.
