Schiff Says Trump Doesn’t ‘Give a Sh*t’ About What’s Best for America

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) says he doesn’t hate President Donald Trump, but he does hate “what he’s doing,” in an interview with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser.

Shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denied that she hates Trump or that impeachment was driven by anything other than the facts, Schiff sat down with Glasser to discuss the impeachment inquiry.

When Glasser asked if Schiff hates the president, he said he doesn’t like what Trump is doing to the country.

“No. but I do hate what he is doing to the country.”

While Pelosi maintained that “the facts are uncontested” in the case against Trump, Schiff notes that Trump and his supporters are launching an “attack on truth” by raising questions about what hours of depositions and hearings have proven about the president’s conduct.

“This attack on truth has always seemed to me the most corrosive to our democracy, the idea that there’s no such thing as fact anymore. Given you have witnesses, [who] say there was a quid pro quo, and then members [who] hear that would say, ‘no one is saying there is a quid pro quo.’ It’s, like, Did you just hear what the witness said?”

Schiff attacked Jonathan Turley, the lone witness in the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing this week to argue against impeachment, over his record defending a judge in a 2010 impeachment trial. The judge was impeached and convicted, which led Schiff to question Turley’s track record.

“And on all four counts, the judge was convicted, and on all four Turley said there was no impeachable crime here, so his track record is less than perfect.”

He also slammed Turley for arguing that Trump’s decision to take Congressional subpoenas to the Supreme Court does not constitute obstruction of Congress.

“What Turley is arguing on behalf of the Administration is you should allow the President’s obstruction to succeed. And that’s not a particularly powerful argument when the President continues to solicit foreign interference in our election,” Schiff said, adding, “You could not have a more open-and-shut case of obstruction of Congress.”

Schiff admitted that there could be more evidence to be gleaned in the impeachment case, one of the reasons Turley has advocated against impeachment, “there may very well be a great body of evidence at the trial that’s not available to us today.”

But, citing concerns about the integrity of the upcoming presidential election, Schiff defended the pace of impeachment.

“They made it clear, ‘No, you subpoena [John] Bolton, he’s going to sue you, and this will be tied up indefinitely in the courts.’ The long and the short of it is, though, given that the President is today trying to get foreign interference in the next election to help him, we do not feel that, when we already have overwhelming evidence, we should wait any longer.”

At the end of the interview, Schiff suggested that Trump only cares about “what’s in it for him personally.”

“The President doesn’t give a sh*t about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his re-election campaign.”

The House Judiciary Committee could draft articles of impeachment and recommend them to the full House as early as December 12.

  1. contusion-“Everything that you just accused the Democrats of doing the American Fascist Party had already done.” Please give a REAL example of what you are saying, not some made up conspiracy theory that you do so well. Still standing behind your BS comment about not calling people names?

  2. Contusion-“I am really curious what your Plan B is for when King Donald The Loser gets deposed.” Well, we all KNOW what your plan Z is when he gets re-elected. The prog/left/lib/dims, like yourself, will just make something else up and waste taxpayers dollars while accomplishing NOTHING.

  3. “Yes Confusion you have the correct ID name there is no confusion about the Mueller report. You General Confusion just want to interpret the report different then Mueller said (stated) in front of Congress ‘there was not enough evident to prove the President obstructed.’” Peter Taylor

    You are confused, Peter.

    Everything was going along smoothly until Mueller had his little secret powwow with A.G. Barr, in March.

    Mueller left any FURTHER investigation up to the people really in charge, Congress members, but just because they cowardly failed to do their duty doesn’t mean that King Donald The Loser was in any way innocent of the accusations made in the report.

    1. NOR WAS HE GUILTY–3 years tons of wasted money and all they can come up with–
      2 flimsy non impeachable articles-
      firstly there is no such crime as obstruction of congress –does not exist -and is not in the constitution
      so scrub that article-
      one even more stupid charge-which is totally unfounded –not one witness to support it -infact the only witnesses all say it never happened-
      scrub this other article-
      and all this was verified by the top legal mind in america -the top law professor at harvard law school
      alan derschewitz –

  4. Schiff doesn’t give a shit about anything! Especially America. A lying, despicable POS is what he is. Let it be known Adamn Schiff, the truth will come out. And you will be wearing the shit on your face. We Americans see right thru your crap…. we are not the dumb, smelly walmart shoppers you all think we are….

  5. The Democrats care more about being in power than they do about the country. They are damaging the system. what if all the Republicans followed they’re lead and don’t accept the results of any elections the Democrats win. And have the shame of an Impeachment like what is going on now.
    Lots of stuff out of the rules for radicals playbook being used right now.Socialists/communists are what the Democrats are. Bring down the system by overloading it.

    1. Wow, I haven’t seen a case of pure projection like this since… well, since I Ching posted last.

      Everything that you just accused the Democrats of doing the American Fascist Party had already done. You are truly amazing.

  6. Let’s see, manufacturing is coming back, unemployment lowest in 50 years, GDP is up, NATO countries are beginning to pay “their fair share”, Trump is starting to pull us out of “endless” wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, he renegotiated better trade deals with Mexico and Canada, he’s getting China to the trade negotiation table and forcing China to stop stealing our trade secrets, he’s negotiating with North Korea, he supports our veterans and has worked to clean up the VA, he’s strengthened our military, he’s trying to get Congress to clean up the immigration laws, building the wall, and got Mexico to help stem the illegal immigrant caravans, he’s trying to stop the fentanyl epidemic …. and he’s the one who isn’t doing everything he can for America?

  7. What a spineless hypocrite. Aren’t all the Dems doing this for the election? He makes me puke. Investigate the pile of Schiff and his little Mini Me Swalwell.

    1. “Aren’t all the Dems doing this for the election?” Sandra Jenkins

      You are confused, Sandra.

      The Democrats are doing this to protect this country from an out of control rogue who thinks that he is a king who can get away with breaking our laws / Constitution and who abuses his office or puts all of us at more risk.

      The only connection to the upcoming election is that he needs to be impeached BEFORE he or his American Fascist Party can either rig it in his favor or be given a chance at having four more years to harm us more than he already has.

  8. Here’s a politician so oily
    he’s served with a doily.
    Put him on a bun.
    You never know when he’s going to run.

    Maybe it’s time for Soylent Greening the deadwood in Congress (both houses) for the poor, stupid, hapless, and homeless. It’s sustainable. Plus it saves paying benefits to the rent-seekers.

  9. Schiff in a SCIF. The Cat in the Hat. If Dr. Seuss were running this impeachment waste (remember these people and their shenanigans are paid for by citizens) at least there’d be a logic and conclusion to justify their misuse of their elected offices.

    Has anyone notice any OTHER agendas being pushed by the Dim-controlled House?

    I wonder how many Dims will be in office post 2020? Certainly Schiff and others in secure Blue zones. I wonder how they’ll handle a re-elected Trump and the loss of the Senate and House? I expect some heads will explode.

    1. I am really curious what your Plan B is for when King Donald The Loser gets deposed.

  10. SCHIFF DOESNT GIVE A SCHIFF WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICA!! THAT IS A FACT!! BUGEYES IS DELIRIOUS AND DELUSIONAL, AND HAS PSYCHOTIC THINKING AT BEST!!!

    1. “THAT IS A FACT!” Randall Clark

      NO IT’S NOT!!

  11. What Adam Schiff believes is best for America is lying to the country about the Mueller report and a lame impeachment inquiry. Jonathan Turley has more sense in his little finger than those other 3 supposed professors and Schiff combined – proven by Nadler falling asleep.

  12. Schiff is a SHITHEAD ,,, We The People KNOW full well the DemonRats Hate America and its people AND Hate who WE ELECTED and WILL elect AGAIN next year.

  13. Well isn’t that rich! Schiff, Pelosi, Finestein, Waters and others of their ilk have turned California into a shithole, but he doesn’t like what Trump is doing to the US. Lowest unemployment in 50 years, tax cuts, great economy and so much more. “Schitthead” is just full of shit! The real truth is Trump is taking down their avenue of laundering Federal money through foreign aid. It’s quite a scam they have been running. Offer foreign aid to a country, tell them they must invest in particular companies, go to the companies and tell them they won’t get any of the foreign aid money unless they get a cut, which means hire my husband, son, daughter, nephew etc., pay them an exorbitant amount of money and the money will just keep coming. Trump is on to their scam and they are done for!

  14. America doesn’t give a schiff about a bug eyed Communist like you Adam.

  15. I suppose in this losers eyes, the way to care about America is to bow down to foreign countries and apologize, for the USA. This guy is so full of crap, that he’s beginning to believe his own lies. Years back, he’d have been either arrested, or locked up in a mental ward.
    Remember also, that this is the guy who went on numerous national networks, saying that he had “actual proof of collusion.”
    Well, you low life, despicable excuse, for a failed abortion. Where is it????????

    1. Allen, I agree with you. Trump is bowing down (to the backsides) to all our foreign enemies. Yes, in earlier times he would have been arrested, and there are growing evidences of his being mentally unsound. Thank you for your sane analysis.

    1. Schiff, Pelosi, and all the California representatives have turned California into a shithole, if we let them they will turn the whole US into the same shithole. Anyone who has no emotional response to what they are doing to the US is not much of an American! They are only in government for one thing, to control you, and the rest of us. If that doesn’t make you mad, then I would say you don’t have much of a soul!

  16. No, Schiffless, that sounds like Joe Biden and his scam to have his son paid tens of thousands a month by Burisma. Trump is trying to save this country from Bolshevik, totalitarian scum balls such as yourself. You hold a Stalin-style Kangaroo court where you don’t even allow confrontation and examination of the “witnesses” by the party being “prosecuted.” None of your “witnesses” yesterday were anything more than Leftist commentators, none of whom had any firsthand knowledge of any “crime” by the president.

  17. No, bull shiff, peelousy and all of the other demonrats/communists hate America and would love to see Her made into a third world shithole like all the other communist countries.

  18. Everyone needs to call the democrat representatives even if you don’t live in their distract and tell them to get to work. Call the republican representative and encourage them to support President Trump.

    I called all of the representative in Michigan, only one hung up on me. (Rep. Stevens office) I called back.

    Just because you don’t live in their district does not mean that what they do does not affect you.

    Don’t be silent!

    Also I asked that they not share my phone number with Rep. Schiff.

  19. These DEms are mentally ill. they need to be put out of office. How did they ever get elected. Schiff and his ilk are the ones who don’t give a shit about America!! They have no soul, conscience, ethics, morals or values!!

  20. I know this is long but if read this carefully you will see what the democrats are up to

    A page out of the democrat’s playbook.

    “Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (…) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (…) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. (…) The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning. This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood.”
    As to the methods to be employed, he explains:
    “Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favorable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favorable to its own side. (…) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (…) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula.”
    Mein Kampf chapter VI

    1. Excellent read and yet scary. Wasn’t propaganda one of the main tools used by Hitler?

      1. Yes, and Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Fidel, Pol Pot, and the rest of the murderous thug Democrat-cousins.

  21. Now, why would Trump only care to be re-elected if it wasn’t for the fact that he cared about the country. If he only cared about himself, he’d leave office and go make millions more. It just so happens that I would absolutely hate what Schiff would do to this country were he president. My disagreement would not be grounds for his impeachment.

  22. Coming from the same weasel faced a%^hole who has spent millions of tax payer dollars to undo an Election. Go jump off of a cliff, Adam…onto a bed of spikes..

  23. On the contrary, it is Shitty Schiff who doesn’t care what happens to our country. He and the rest of the demonazis want a dictatorship with them as the elites and the American citizens as slaves.

  24. WELL, SO CALLED CONGRESSMAN, SCH – – T, WE FOLKS DO NOT LIKE YOUR TRAITOR ATTITUDE EITHER AND WE WILL ACT TO HAVE YOUR LYING BUTT REMOVED POST HASTE!

  25. perhaps he is confusing himself with his Democratic part of absolute hate. just saying

  26. schiff…….YOU ARE AN A$$HOLE !!!!!!!NOT TRUMP!………TRUMP DID ALOT OF ‘GOOD’ FOR US AND THE U.S.A. THAN ALL OF THE DAMN DEM’S PRESIDENTS COMBINED TO DATE!!!!!!!! YOU ARE A PENCIL NECKED JERK AND AN OUT RIGHT LIAR!!!!!!

  27. The democrats don’t give a shit about America they want to control every aspect of your lives they want all the power to dictate Shift you and the rest are a embarrassment to this country

  28. Maybe next year the electorate will realize what a foolish mistake it is to empower Marxists with House majority. Maybe. Just maybe.

  29. Interesting comment coming from a guy that has wasted millions of taxpayer money to try to get rid of a President that has done great things for our economy, lowered our taxes, tried to halt the border invasion and did this even though the entire media and the lunatic left tried to stop his success. Schiff and the rest of the Democrats should hang their head in shame, for they have done nothing but cause great harm to America. These are the low life’s we need to get rid of, not President Trump.

  30. For someone who doesn’t give a damn about America, Trump is sure doing an excellent job. Let’s face it, the democrats have come at Trump every way they can possibly dream up. Impeachment is just another tactic to invalidate the vote of 63 million American citizens.

  31. This is what delusional sounds like. Schiff lives in his own little evil head. President Trump has done more in his 3 short years than Schiff for brains has done in his entire career….for this country. Even with the Democrats nipping at his heels as he was sworn in President Trump continues to deal with the important issues.

  32. Mr. Schiff is going to pay for his treason. He believes he alone has the authority to determine what constitutes a “fact” as well as what constitutes the “truth”. This is an outrageous abuse of power and he will suffer the consequences, rest assured.
