Cruz Turns Tables Back on Dems as Impeachment Trial Opens, Keeps Spotlight on Schiff

Ted Cruz

Even in the Senate, Democrats want to play by House rules.

As the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump opened on Tuesday, Democrats trying to oust a duly elected president showed how hard they’re going to try to use the same kinds of kangaroo court tactics in the upper chamber as they used in the House of Representatives to pass articles of impeachment in the first place.

In a move that likely foreshadows the bare-knuckle fights ahead, the seven House impeachment managers appointed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Tuesday attacking his role on the Trump defense team while alleging he is a “fact witness” to the events in question.

But Sen. Ted Cruz struck back hard in a Facebook post with an argument few Democrats likely want to face.

Describing the letter as “Democrats’ opening salvo,” the Texas Republican had one question: What do they say about Rep. Adam Schiff?

Schiff, of course, is the California Democrat and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who played such a key role in getting the articles of impeachment through the House.

Now, he’s one of the managers prosecuting the case in the Senate.

Throughout the hearing process in the House, Schiff’s honesty was doubtful to any unbiased observer — from his literally unbelievable claim that he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower to his clearly disingenuous statements about the contact between the whistleblower and Schiff’s committee before the complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was even filed.

It’s fair to say that behind Pelosi herself, no one in Congress is more responsible for the impeachment trial the country is experiencing than Schiff. full story
