Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) expressed confidence that Attorney General Merrick Garland “took every precaution” and “acted appropriately” in the investigation that prompted the unprecedented raid on President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
“Do you have any concerns about the potential for this precedent, a search of a president’s house, to be abused?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked on State of The Union on Sunday.
“In terms of the precedent, I’m confident Merrick Garland took every precaution, took every effort short of the search warrant to obtain those documents,” Schiff replied. “If the public reporting is correct that Trump lawyers asserted in an affidavit that they had given all these documents up and the Justice Department had good reason to believe that wasn’t true, then it justifies this means of getting the information, the execution of a search warrant. Yes, it’s a very powerful precedent. At the same time, I’m confident that it was used appropriately given the circumstances.”
That’s a cute story, But Schiff has some credibility issues. He is the same guy who falsely claimed to have personally seen evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election. So, honestly, I’m not sure how his opinion on Garland’s credibility matters here.
I’m sure there’s someone, but I can’t think of a single person in the Democrat party (and that includes DOJ and FBI leadership) that has a lick of credibility remaining in their entire being. Schiff? He is a credibility black hole; if anyone that has credibility gets near him, he sucks it into his pit of anti-truth and the credibility is gone, never to be seen again.
Every indication and bit of evidence we know of about this illegal and illicit raid on Trump tells us it was a political operation, based on nothing but the fact that idiot Biden and the Democrats are floundering in a swamp of failure. But, when Schiff says it’s all on the up and up, you can then be rest assured this was nothing but a DNC operation through and through.
