The Democrats have been more than a little bit obsessed with the idea of some vast conspiracy tying President Donald Trump to the Kremlin, even after a $25 million, 22 month-long investigation ended without any charges for Donald Trump.
Yes, the RussiaGate conspiracy theory is back in the news once again, this time making a predictable appearance during the Democrats’ closing arguments in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and thorn in the side of the President, suggested that an acquitted Trump could be emboldened to the point in which he would relinquish Alaska to the control of Vladimir Putin.
“Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election,” he said. “Or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago personally and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war.”
Schiff said Senate Republicans would create a “runaway presidency” if they failed to remove him from office.
“We have known since the day we brought these charges that the bar to conviction requiring a full two-thirds of the Senate may be prohibitively high,” he said. “And yet, the alternative is a runaway presidency and a nation whose elections are open to the highest bidder.”
Folks, were are now entering Bizarro World.
Adam Schiff’s antics have been polarizing from the start, with the House Intel Chair doing everything in his power to steer the “formal impeachment inquiry” in the direction of damaging the President.
