For the many part, Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) Republican associates have low regard for your house Intelligence Committee chairman, who is leading the push for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Throughout an appearance on Birmingham, AL radio’s Talk 99.5, Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL), the chairman of the Home Republican Policy Committee, put that on display screen.
He was asked about the whereabouts of the so-called “whistleblower” declaring a quid pro quo between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who was promoted by Schiff.
” I remained in a rundown Wednesday with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and I was with the senator Thursday early morning, and I am at the point the story has actually changed on the whistleblower that I am now describing that individual, whoever it is, as an unnamed partner in effort to overthrow a president,” Palmer said on Monday’s “Matt & Aunie Show.”
The Alabama Republican politician went on to call Schiff a liar, which Palmer stated was demonstrated by his track record.
” Schiff’s a liar,” he continued. “I hope it returns to him. It’s the agreement that we have. He’s proven himself over and over once again to be unreliable. He makes things up as he goes.”
Palmer noted he was onboard with a procedure to censure Schiff and described his tenure as a federal district attorney.
” I are among the initial signatures to censure,” Palmer added. “We ought to have done it a long time ago. This is a pattern. I began taking a look at some of Schiff’s background, and right after he got chosen to Congress, he got elected during George W. Bush’s presidency. You might keep in mind, President Bush fired 7 U.S. lawyers, and Schiff instantly started an examination. He stated the firing of those 7 U.S. Attorneys was political.”
” Well, I have actually got news for him: It’s always political. Costs Clinton fired all 96 U.S. Lawyers the same day after he got chosen,” he continued. “It is the president’s prerogative to have whomever he wishes to act as a U.S. Attorney. So, Schiff has actually enjoyed this investigation, attempt to take people down, try to impeach type of things e er because he has actually been there. He had a rather undistinguished profession as a U.S. Lawyer himself.”
