Adam Schiff To Trump: You Only Want A Second Presidential Term To Escape Prison Time



The investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into President Donald Trump, his Organization, his White House, his administration, his close circle and his White House seemed  like it was going on for many lifetimes. It certainly feels like much longer than two years ago that the Justice Department (specifically, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein) found itself forced to commission the former Director of the FBI to set up a probe to investigate Trump.

The original claims that then Republican candidate Donald Trump colluded with  Russian state actors in order to steal the result of the election and the White House from rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, on top of obstruction of justice afterwards in a desperate attempt to cover it up, seemed plausible given the evidence. However, we now know the outcome of Mueller’s report and it was not in our favor. But there is a silver lining to that. We still have Adam Schiff on our side and given his propensity for finding out the truth, I’m imagining that Trump will still be brought to justice. After all, Mueller’s report did not exonerate Trump

Schiff recently went on record by saying what everyone else is now thinking given the outcome of the Mueller report. Here’s the interview:

Among President Donald Trump’s most compelling reasons to work as hard as possible to remain in the White House might be to stay out of prison, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Tuesday. Trump is essentially an unindicted co-conspirator — “Individual 1” ― in the felony hush-money scheme that is sending his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen to prison for three years. The statute of limitations for that crime runs out in five years, meaning Trump could escape prosecution if he wins re-election, under Justice Department guidelines that preclude indicting a sitting president.

“I’m sure that it has occurred to the president that there is a prospect that he may be indicted when he leaves office,” said Schiff, a California Democrat who took control of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in January after his party picked up 40 seats in last year’s midterm elections. “And the longer he stays in office and if he is able to avoid the statute of limitations by remaining in office ― that that is a consideration that has not escaped him.”

The White House press office did not respond to queries about Schiff’s remarks. On Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed she did not know about the checks that Trump wrote to Cohen repaying him for buying the silence of pornographic actress Stormy Daniels, who said she had an affair with Trump — even though Trump signed the checks in the White House and a couple were displayed publicly when Cohen testified before Congress last month. “I’m not aware of those specific checks,” Sanders said in a rare White House press briefing.

This is why we need to vote blue in 2020, no matter who. Because if Trump can get elected again, and there are enough whack jobs out there that believe he’s actually doing good for this country (news flash: he’s not), then he may never be brought to justice.

Hopefully the American voters will see and understand this in the 2020 election.
