Adam Schiff started ranting about his delusional Trump fantasy during the closing arguments of the Senate impeachment trial on Monday.
After a series of procedural votes on Friday that made it clear that President Trump will not be convicted by the Senate on the House’s delusional impeachment charges, Adam Schiff lost touch with reality.
The president’s lawyers argued that Trump could not be impeached since he committed no criminal act in his talks with the president of Ukraine. Schiff shot back by saying “abuse of power” is impeachable and warning about all kinds of dangers America could face if Trump is not impeached – including losing Alaska to Russia and having Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kusher as a shadow president.
“If [abuse of power] were not impeachable then a whole range of unacceptable conduct in a president would be beyond reach,” argued Schiff. Trump “could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election,” or retire to Mar-a-Lago and let Kushner “run the country” and decide when to go to war, he added.
“Because those things are not necessarily criminal, this argument would allow that he could not be impeached for such abuses of power,” Schiff argued.
Adam Schiff: If Trump isn’t removed he “could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and leave Jared Kushner to run the country, delegating to him the decision whether they go to war.”

Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!
