Because the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump wraps up, Fox Info contributor Jason Chaffetz on Tuesday blasted Home Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his conduct all the scheme through the process.
“I soundless, to in the period in-between, catch now not realize why Adam Schiff has a security clearance. He continues to lie; he continues to set out knowledge that he is aware of is now not factual,” Chaffetz told “Fox & Chums.”
Chaffetz continued, “He has stood in front of the US Senate and talked about issues that are now not in the impeachment. I feel he’s a horrid embarrassment and someone’s gotta, I hope, why catch you maintain a security clearance.”
The impeachment trial of Trump drew nearer towards its practically-inevitable conclusion with closing arguments Monday, as Democratic Home impeachment managers made a closing-ditch push to persuade the Senate that an acquittal would possibly well per chance be a “death blow” to the flexibility to contend with a president in check, while Trump’s defense group of workers accused the Democrats of collaborating in a rushed, “purely partisan” endeavor.
Either aspect was accredited Monday to absorb to two hours to catch their final case, as complaints stretch into but every other week amid expectations that a largely occasion-line acquittal awaits the president by Wednesday afternoon.
Schiff, the lead Home impeachment manager, said on Sunday that he believes the Democrats “proved” their case against President Trump and that there was nothing they would possibly well per chance maintain completed differently
“Watch, there would possibly be nothing that I’m in a position to query that lets maintain completed differently because, because the senators maintain already admitted, we proved our case. We proved our case,” Schiff told CBS’ “Face The Nation.”
Chaffetz went on to narrate, “There is no momentum. Adam Schiff failed and failed again. He didn’t catch the case. It was a horrid embarrassment and can’ve by no scheme came about.”
