Schiff: ‘Far More Dangerous’ for DoJ Not to Prosecute Trump

Schiff: ‘Far More Dangerous’ for DoJ Not to Prosecute Trump

July 4, 2022

Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation, Democrat Party propagandist Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said it would be “far more dangerous” for the Department of Justice not to investigate and potentially prosecute former President Trump.

“You know, for four years the Justice Department took the position that you can’t indict a sitting president,” the inveterate liar Schiff stated. “If the Department were now to take the position that you can’t investigate or indict a former president, then, a president becomes above the law. That’s a very dangerous idea that the founders would have never subscribed to. Even more dangerous, I think in the case of Donald Trump. This – Donald Trump is someone who has shown when he’s not held accountable, he goes on to commit worse and worse abuses of power. So I agree with Judge Carter in California, I think there was evidence that the former President engaged in multiple violations of the law, and that should be investigated.”

This is all just partisan bluster from Schiff, who is repeatedly trotted out before the complicit news media to perpetuate lies and conspiracy theories designed to keep Trump and his supporters under constant suspicion of criminality and treason. Remember the Russian election collusion hoax and Schiff’s ominous insistence that he had personally seen plenty of evidence of wrongdoing, which he wasn’t at liberty to reveal? His claims about the so-called January 6 insurrection are from the same playbook.

Asked if there wasn’t a tricky political risk to prosecuting Trump and dividing the country even further, Schiff replied, “You know, it’s certainly not a step to be taken lightly at all. At the same time, immunizing a former president who has engaged in wrongdoing, I would agree with our vice chair – I think is more dangerous than anything else, and the decision not to move forward to the investigation or not to move forward to the prosecution, because of someone’s political status or political influence or because they have a following. To me, that is a far more dangerous thing to our Constitution than following the evidence wherever it leads, including when it leads to a former president.”

The Democrats aren’t obsessing over Trump because they believe he is a threat to the Constitution, or because they care about criminality or purported abuses of power. They obsess because they believe, rightly so, that he is a threat to their agenda to consolidate a one-party state.
