One would think it’s a wacky idea to launch a second impeachment crusade a few months before an election, but NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd was prodding Adam Schiff from the left on Sunday to restart his engines, based on the new John Bolton “tell-all” book.
Bolton chose not to testify in the first impeachment attempt….it looks like he wanted to hold out for the book profits. Todd asked Schiff if he didn’t do enough:
I know that you wanted to see Mr. Bolton testify. You wanted to see him do it voluntarily. You also, I remember you and I had a conversation before the impeachment trial began, about the issue of Bolton and about why the House chose not to force the situation because you thought that it was better done in the Senate. Do you regret that decision now? Should you have fought harder to get Bolton to testify before you voted on the articles?
Schiff said “Bolton said he would sue us if we subpoenaed him.” So Todd suggested aggression is never too late:
TODD: Look, if you don’t act now and you sort of wait to act and you wait to see what happens in November, is that too late? If you believe he has done impeachable acts with the Chinese government, can you really wait until after the election to, to put Bolton under oath, to start the process?
ADAM SCHIFF: I don’t think we should wait if we conclude that there are important things that he says that need to be exposed to the public. The public needs to know exactly what they have in this president. A lot of it is not a surprise. But at the same time, exposure of this president’s misconduct is the best way to protect the country.
Can you believe Chuck used to tout neutrality? Made ads as a referee? Now he’s insisting the media needs to insure the Black Lives Matter fervor doesn’t fade. At the end of today’s show, he noted Team Trump wants the media to press Joe Biden for answers — “come on media, get him out there” — and he dismissed that with “you’re losing.” The media’s on Team Basement Campaign. Biden hasn’t had a press conference since April 2.
pencil dick schiff would kiss any one’s ass for a vote. he is in a re-election year. he is not worried because the dnc has purchased the votes needed similar to bar fly pelosi. both todd and schiff demonstrate sociopathic behaviour, nothing out of the ordinary that lies and deception are normal. the media is the dnc’s propaganda form. old expression for the media, dnc and democraps, do we cheat them and how? if you do not recall: Marx brothers.
I just wish that pathetic little Pencil Neck little dweeb would just go and live in the Amazon and swing from trees he looks like the class geek who sits eating Yogurt on the back Pourch and is a tree hugger as well
They should definitely throw the book at him.
In retrospect, historians are going to marvel at America’s episode of temporary Trumpian insanity.
@Greg: So the ticket for you is Biden/Bolton. You’ve always loved Bolton, now you are just out of the closet.
Democrat desperation is spreading faster than COVID19.
Yes, the TDS kind where Democrats killed black people in the streets in the name of saving black people, impeachments were attempted without a crime or any evidence, and a political party bought off the majority of the media propagandize rather than report the news objectively.
“Trump: How Violent Socialism Almost Took Over the World’s Most Important Republic, and the President Who Stopped It.”
That’s an accurate historical title.
