Rep. Adam Schiff quotes: ‘Your head will be on a pike’

Adam Schiff, House manager for the impeachment prosecution of President Donald Trump, has said some wild and crazy things this week.

Here are some of the choice quotes he has made as he has tried to convince Senate Republicans to convict the president and remove him from office:

“CBS News report that a Trump confidant said that GOP senators were warned ‘… vote against the president and your head will be on a pike,'” Schiff argued in front of the Senate.

(U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski told reporters she thought he had been doing pretty well with his oratory until then, but that the “head on a pike” comment was unnecessary.)

“The President’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won,” Schiff said earlier this week. This was an entirely new reason for wanting to impeach him — because you cannot trust U.S. elections,” Schiff warned this week.

Did he really say that we cannot trust our elections? Yes, he actually did.

And then there are these gems:

“You know you can’t trust this president to do what’s right for this country. You can trust that he will do what’s right for Donald Trump. He’ll do it now. He’ll do it for the next several months. He’ll do it in the election if he’s allowed to. This is why, if you find him guilty, you must find that he should be removed. Because right matters. Because right matters. And the truth matters. Otherwise we are lost.”

“Is there really any doubt about this? I mean, do we really have any doubt about the facts here? Does anybody really question whether the president is capable of what he’s charged with? No one is really making the argument Donald Trump would never do such a thing … because, of course, we know that he would.”

“So I ask you, I implore you, give America a fair trial. Give America a fair trial. She’s worth it. Thank you.”

Because you would not want your head on a pike, evidently.

The Senate is adjourned until Saturday morning at 10 am, when the president’s defense will present their case for three days. Sunday the Senate will not be in session.

  • Schiff reveals much about himself through his Logorhea, he is an elitist who views the electorate as being dumb brutes, incapable of determining the right course. Governing is best placed in the hands of the experts, like Schiff. God help us.

  • Very boring presentation! Around 10% of Senators have been seen leaving the chamber at any given time while about the same number were seen with an arm or hand over their faces, sleeping. I think that after hearing the same story six times that many Senators, including Dems were getting tired and losing interest. For something that is supposed to be so important and historic, the house managers blew it. I changed channels to watch a cooking show that was infinitely more entertaining. My guess is that most Americans are no longer interested in the subject and just want to move on. Heck, even my wife who is ultra liberal and hates Trump says this “Show” is a waste of time and will just strengthen Trump’s chances of re-election. She is probably right.

    • Your wife is exactly right and we appreciate all the efforts the socialist Democrats have done to ensure a second term.

      • 🤣🤣🤣 So TRUE!

  • Since he was a former assistant us attorney, I wonder how many innocent people are in jail because of him. it is obviously apparent but he will say anything and do anything without any shred of evidence. He is one of the reasons why I boycott California. I go out of my way not to set foot on California soil.

  • Adam Schiff ,the poster punk that shows what obstruction really looks and smells like, then there’s Jerry Nadler who speaks out of 2 mouths, 1 upper & 1 lower. Neither one speaks real truth. I’m no fan of Trump, but at this point in the circus Democrats are so far left they simply don’t qualify to be legitimate lawmakers , just disgusting liars, enemy of this republic we used to refer as united.

  • It should be obvious, by now, who the real criminals are in this sham impeachment and it is NOT President Donald Trump. Many of us already know that adam schiff is guilty of crimes that will send him to jail for a very, very long time, along with the others who are lighting the fire on this barbeque of our POTUS. Many of us recognize that the ONLY reason these Democrats want to stop Pres Trump and remove him from office is to prevent him from exposing THEM in their decades long, treacherous crimes against America and their illegal money laundering of our tax dollars. They are facilitating their own demise by exposing themselves with their radical and chaotic scurry to usurp the 2016 presidential election and prevent Pres Trump’s reelection in November

  • Where are all the site trolls? Why aren’t they coming out to play?

  • He looks, sounds, and acts like the classic class-room tattle-tale, hall-monitor, bully.
