Adam Schiff is a joke. He says the country would never survive four more years of Trump. Well, if we can make it through one more day of Schiff, four years of Trump would be a breeze. His latest is his claim that campaigns should not get foreign help in their campaigns.
I would like to point out that only one candidate got foreign help in her campaign and from more than one country. Hillary and the DNC hired Christopher Steele by funneling money to the law firm of Perkins and Coie, who in turn hired Fusion GPS.
Christopher allegedly got information for his phony dossier from Russians, Christopher Steele is a retired British spy. And the DNC sent an agent to successfully get information from parties inside the Ukrainian government. That’s help from three foreign countries. When do you suppose Schiff will open an investigation into Hillary? Never.
Partial transcript as follows:
STEPHANOPOULOS: We also saw an effort this week by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, to get the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden for his diplomacy in the Ukraine while his son was serving on the board of the largest natural gas producer there. And the president told Politico on Friday it would be appropriate for him to discuss a probe of Biden with the attorney general. Is it appropriate?
SCHIFF: Of course it’s not appropriate and what is so shocking to me, I served for many years on a democracy commission in the Congress where we would partner with parliaments in emerging countries, emerging democracies and we would always say when you win an election you don’t seek to jail the losing side. And here the president of the United States is saying it’s perfectly OK for him — and he has said this before — to go to the attorney general and get them to open an investigation of his rivals. And sadly, this attorney general has turned out to be so political and partisan and so without — frankly without integrity, he just might do it.
And you know, that does add to the sense of crisis that these democratic norms are being broken down every day. The fact that we’re not even done with this investigation of the last foreign interference in our election and Giuliani, apparently with the president’s — at least initially (ph) — knowledge and blessing, was going to get the help of another foreign government in a presidential election. You know, it — it tells me that they not only think this — there’s nothing wrong with this. If that’s true, there’s something wrong with them.
SCHIFF: How about the underlying issue, though? There’s no public evidence that the vice president — former vice president took any inappropriate action to help his son, but was it right for Hunter Biden to take a job like that in Ukraine while his father was engaged in diplomacy there?
SCHIFF: I don’t know the circumstances in which he took the job but I can say this vis-à-vis Joe Biden, there’s no evidence nor has there ever been any evidence that he was doing anything but trying to get the Ukraine government to crack down on corruption. Now we’re providing generous support to Ukraine, we’re providing defensive weapons to Ukraine, we want Ukraine to be successful in its conflict with Russia. But part of that is happening in a government that the people of Ukraine are willing to fight for and protect.
