House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff led the Democrats impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and it has completely imploded in recent months.
But Schiff had quite the slip of the tongue on Wednesday when he admitted the real reason why Democrats are trying so hard to remove the president.
While speaking from the Senate floor, Schiff revealed that Democrats’ partisan impeachment is about stopping President Donald Trump from being re-elected.
“The House did not take this extraordinarily step lightly,” Schiff began. “As we will discuss, impeachment exists for cases in which the conduct of the president rises beyond mere policies, disputes to be decided otherwise, and without urgency at the ballot box.”
“Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff continued.
He concluded: “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”
