Adam Schiff: We May Have 'Crossed The Rubicon', There Is No Going Back For Trump
Adam Schiff on Twitter
“An explicit quid pro quo isn’t required to betray your country. It’s enough to abuse power for personal gain. Giuliani doing it is bad enough. Trump is a different matter. It’s one thing when it’s done by the court jester, and another when done by the man who would be King. https://t.co/DC4LfA0sGw”
Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) has long been cautious about impeachment, it now appears that he is going there.
“I have been very reluctant to go down the path of impeachment. . . . This would be an extraordinary remedy of last resort, not first resort,” Schiff said. “But if the President is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit that is providing dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that that conduct represents.”
