Things are tense on Capitol Hill, as they have been for years now.
The arrival of Donald Trump had everyone on edge. The swamp creatures, the elected officials who have spent decades on The Beltway, were rightfully concerned that Donald Trump was coming to get them.
This fear of being flushed out of DC has caused a panic among certain factions within our public servitude, particularly on the left side of the aisle. Among those fearing for their future in Washington is House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who this week admitted that he’s been considering a move to the north.
“We may all be moving to Canada soon,” he said during a forum on “Social Media Disinformation and Election Interference,” organized by George Washington University.
The California Democrat made the comment before the moderator moved the discussion to Dominic LeBlanc, a member of the Canadian Parliament.
Schiff, who was one of the House’s impeachment managers in the case against President Trump, said he remains most concerned about Russian interference on social media heading into the November election and big tech’s handling of the issue.
Schiff has spent plenty of time on the offensive as it pertains to Trump, and has certainly spent a paranoia-inducing amount of time denigrating the very existence of the Commander in Chief.
While his comments about abandoning his country may be shocking, the narrative he’s constructed for himself over the course of the last few years has made this sort of drivel almost expected.
