Now more than ever, Adam Schiff's Midnight in Washington speech ranks with the greatest in history.



''It is Midnight in Washington.

The lights are finally going out in the Capitol after a long day in the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.

You can’t trust this president to do the right thing. Not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of our country.

You just can’t.

He will not change. And you know it.

History will not be kind to Donald Trump. I think we all know that, not because it will be written by never-Trumpers. But because whenever we have departed from the values of our nation, we have come to regret it. And that regret is written all over the pages of our history.

If you find that the house has proved its case, and still vote to acquit, your name will be tied to his with a cord of steel and for all of history.

He has betrayed our national security. He has compromised our elections, and he will do so again.

You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. Truth matters little to him.

What’s right matters even less and decency matters not at all.

We have proven Donald Trump guilty. Now do impartial justice and convict him''


Everything in the last year confirmed the worst of Schiff’s charges. When Trump’s culpability for COVID became manifest, we saw Schiff’s warning resonate with the deaths of hundreds of thousands. And now, none but the hardest core traitors can deny the prescience, lucidity and passion of Adam Schiff’s call for justice.

“You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. Truth matters little to him.

Emphasis mine

And here we are - with a bunch of complicit fascists whining that they could not have known he would go this far... All of them who failed to hold a proper and transparent hearing over Trumps impeachment need to be held accountable. They knew ir. They saw it. A democratic congress shoved their faces in it, and yet they need nothing to stop this man.

1. Ty, Congressman Schiff & Soph!

If you find that the house has proved its case, and still vote to acquit, your name will be tied to his with a cord of steel and for all of history.


Repuke senators likely have nightmares about this!

Adam Schiff has always been spot on in his assessment of the apricot hell beast and his sniveling minions.
