I am watching Rep. Adam Schiff (D-NY), ranking democrat of the House Intelligence Committee, make his opening statement prior to FBI Director James Comey’s testimony.
He is doing a terrific imitation of Joe McCarthy, by smearing President Trump and his people via a combination of reciting actual events which prove nothing, then adding in healthy doses insinuation and speculation, regarding Russian “collusion” with the Trump administration.
This, he (and his cohorts) appear to think, is going to help the Democrat Party.
He (and they) are wrong. Dead wrong.
If the Democrat Party goes down in flames in 2018, it will be as much because smug Democrats in safe seats (i.e. they have nothing to worry about personally), like Adam Schiff for example, make these kinds of comments, as anything Trump and his people do.
