House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. must be disqualified from serving as a manager in the Senate impeachment trial.
For starters Schiff may be called as a witness given that his staff conspired with the whistleblower whose complaint filed with the intelligence inspector general last summer triggered the whole impeachment charade. Schiff — a conspiracy theorist and known Trump hater — then lied to the media about his contacts with the whistleblower during a broadcast interview last fall, earning him four Pinocchios by the Washington Post.
Memo to Democrats: If the far left Washington Post doesn’t trust Schiff, why should the American people?
That said, clearly a conflict exists. Schiff cannot be both a potential witness in an impeachment trial and also a lead manager tasked with the prosecution of the president. It’s just plain wrong.
