Adam Schiff to Maher: GOP lining their pockets before Trumps wheels come completely off the wagon

After showing a rowdy town hall in which a constituent shouted at a Republican House member to “decide to be an American and not a politician,” Maher asked Schiff, “How can they govern if that’s what’s brewing out in America? What are the Republicans saying to each other behind closed doors? They must be sh*tting their pants.”

Schiff laughed, but then said, “They all want something from this president before the wheels come completely off the wagon. They want their tax cuts, they want their regulatory repeal of all the mining regulations, etc. And then they’ll find their spine.”


This is not a crisis, Republicans say as a large spider slowly devours them

I would recognize a crisis if it were happening.

When the president seized me, stunned me with his venom and covered me with digestive fluid from his chelicerae, I was initially taken aback, but I reassured myself with this thought: President Richard Nixon never did that.

I know history.

LOL! WaPo Disputes Trump's Claim That He Is Busy and Active!


President Trump says he’s ‘very active.’ His schedule doesn’t.

So far this week, Trump has had only nine events on his public calendar — all of them closed. If we compare week-to-week, that shift in his activity is obvious.

The obvious question that arises is: What’s Trump doing the rest of the time?

If he’s very active, what’s he active doing? Who’s he meeting with? What are they discussing? We are left to make one of two assumptions: Trump either is hiding a lot of his presidential business from the public, or he is not doing much at all.



The campaign did.

Adam Schiff calls Trump's bluff, and issued the following statement:

In a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, Rep. Schiff (D-CA) said:

Today, the President made two extraordinary statements, one intended to threaten the FBI Director he just fired in the middle of the Russia investigation – and who may now be a witness – and the other to justify the misleading and conflicting explanations that he and his staff have given for that firing.

If the President has “tapes” of his conversations with Director Comey, it is because the President himself made them. For a President who baselessly accused his predecessor of illegally wiretapping him, that Mr. Trump would suggest that he, himself, may have engaged in such conduct is staggering. The President should immediately provide any such recordings to Congress or admit, once again, to have made a deliberately misleading – and in this case threatening – statement.

Finally, and with respect to the President’s suggestion that as a very busy person, he doesn’t have time to ensure that his spokespeople are accurately portraying his actions – it is difficult to know how to respond – except to say, being truthful with the American people is a core responsibility of the job. If he did not want to willingly undertake even the minimal requirements of the Presidency, it would have been far better for him to have considered that before he chose to run for the highest office in the land.
