House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is so desperate to impeach President Donald Trump, he’s coming up with new, wild accusations every day.
In addition to the slew of other charges Schiff has thrown at Trump, now, he is adding bribery to the menu, according to Breitbart.
Where’s the bribery?
During the first day of public impeachment hearings, Schiff added several new narratives to the case against Trump in hopes that at least one will stick.
He doubled down on these new accusations on NPR, saying: “On the basis of what the witnesses have had to say so far, there are any number of potentially impeachable offenses, including bribery, including high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Schiff & co. are clearly starting to push the narrative that Trump is guilty of bribery. This is how they are re-packaging their failed quid pro quo narrative.
Since Ukraine already has the aid and already had its White House meeting while never investigating the Bidens, they have to think of a new way to package their charges — and bribery is the one that best fits.
Schiff invoked the founders in his definition of bribery, saying: “As the founders understood bribery, it was not as we understand it in law today. It was much broader.
“It connoted the breach of the public trust in a way where you’re offering official acts for some personal or political reason, not in the nation’s interest,” he added.
Schiff went on: “Bribery only requires that you’re soliciting something of value. It doesn’t have to be cash. It can be something of value.”
According to Schiff, that thing of value was “seeking help from Ukraine in his reelection campaign in the form of two investigations that he thought were politically advantageous, including one of his primary rival.”
So Adam Schiff is angling to use “the founders” — without citing any that actually support the claim — because apparently, current law doesn’t understand bribery in a way that’s convenient in order for Dems to impeach Trump.
Since the impeachment hearings went public, Democrats’ hopes of removing Trump from office have crashed and burned, and they’re clearly getting desperate. When will they just give it up?
