At a news conference discussing his Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report, Adam Schiff laid out why Trump is a danger to America.
So Americans should care deeply about whether the President Of The United States is betraying their trust in him, betraying that oath that he took to the constitution to protect our country and defend its institutions. So we should care about this. We must care about this. If we don’t care about this, we can darn well be assured the president will be back at it doing this all over again. Because indeed he already has. F
First, there was the invitation to Russia to interfere in our last election. Hey Russia, if you’re listening, hack Hillary’s emails. Indeed later that day they tried to do exactly that. But then there was the use of this official power to compel another country, Ukraine, to interfere in the 2020 election, and even after, even after our investigation began, even after the impeachment inquiry began, there was President Donald Trump out on the White House lawn once again making it abundantly clear that he wanted Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
What’s more, he wanted other countries to interfere in our election as well and that China should also investigate the Bidens. this is the result of a president who believes that he is beyond indictment, beyond impeachment, beyond any form of accountability and indeed above the law. That is a very dangerous thing for this country, to have an unethical president who believes they’re above the law.
Trump is a danger to America. The impeachment proceedings aren’t about a phone call. They are about a scheme by a president to undermine democracy. The central focus of this scandal is the corruption actions of a corrupt man who is a danger to the United States, because he doesn’t care about the country.
Republicans are trying to muddy the waters, but Adam Schiff spelled it out in clear language that should trouble every single American.
