Schiff blasts GOP for failing to stand up to Trump, not defending the 'rule of law'

Source: ABC News

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., blasted Republicans for failing to stand up to the president and for not defending the "rule of law," after the president moved to commute the prison sentence of his longtime friend and former campaign adviser, Roger Stone.

"I think anyone who cares about the rule of law in this country is nauseated by the fact that the president has commuted the sentence of someone who willfully lied to Congress," Schiff told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday.

"It shouldn't matter whether you're Democrat or Republican, this should be offensive to you if you care about the rule of law and you care about justice," Schiff added.

Stone came under scrutiny for activity related to former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and was sentenced to 40 months in prison after he was found guilty in November. He was expected to report to prison on July 14.

5. Republicans believe in one law for themselves and another for everyone else

Letting them remain in office is dangerous.
