Schiff: If GOP Senators Don’t Give The Country A Fair Trial They ‘Will Be Held Accountable’

(Breitbart) – Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) warned on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week” that if Republican senators do not allow witnesses in the impeachment of President Donald Trump, they will be held accountable by voters.

Schiff said, “We will be fighting for a fair trial.”

He continued, “If the Senate decides if the Senator McConnell prevails and there are no witnesses, it will be the first impeachment trial that goes to conclusion without witnesses. The atmosphere in the Senate when I came with the other House managers, and we read the articles was one befitting something that has only happened three times in the nation’s history. I intend during the trial to be respectful of the senators, to operate from the presumption that they do take their oath seriously, but also with the knowledge that Americans are watching, that they’re going to demand a fair trial, and if the senators don’t give the country a fair trial, one that’s fair to the president, but also fair to the American people, the senators will be held accountable. So that’s the approach I intend to take.”

Flashback: Judicial Watch Sues Adam Schiff For Phone Snooping Records

Judicial Watch has sued the House Intelligence Committee and its chairman, Adam Schiff (D-CA), on Friday for records relating to Schiff’s phone snooping on his Republican counterpart, a journalist, and the president’s lawyer.

Schiff included phone logs purporting to document communications between Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA), journalist John Solomon, and presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, among others, attempting to implicate them in a plot to smear the reputation of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, whom President Donald Trump had constitutional authority to fire for any reason, regardless.

A press release from Judicial Watch explained:

The phone records led to the publication of the private phone records of Giuliani, Congressman Devon Nunes, journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing, and other American citizens.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit under the public’s common-law right of public access to examine government records after it received no response to a December 6, 2019, records request (Judicial Watch v Adam Schiff and U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (No. 1:19-cv-03790)):

  • All subpoenas issued by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on or about September 30, 2019 to any telecommunications provider including, but not limited to AT&T, Inc., for records of telephone calls of any individuals;
  • All responses received to the above-referenced subpoenas.

Judicial Watch accused Schiff of abusing his power. Schiff allegedly used a subpoena to AT&T for the records of several unidentified phone numbers in an apparent attempt to conceal the fact that he was trying to reconstruct the phone conversations of his intended targets, which he then published in the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report. Schiff did not cite any legal authority for his actions, which arguably violated the First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution.

Nunes has said that Schiff violated his civil liberties, and that he will pursue all legal options; the White House responded by noting that one of the phone numbers in the report was incorrect.

  1. Shit, Schumer, Puslosi, & Nutliar, check their fecesees appearing faces, lt is time to really teach these USELESS American public haters & that this Barnum/Bailey Circus act & piss pour Dumorats clowns be put to bed & let them rot in hell this November!!!!!

  2. This Arrogant POS refuses to comprehend his TREASONOUS ass will be in prison for FRAUD upon the American people in our PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP’S 2nd term when we the people take back the House from the COMMUNIST DEEP STATE DEMOCRATS. MAGA 2024 and BEYOND

  3. The people in Schiff’s district as they go to the polls in the primary need to think about what he has done for his district. If they cannot discern anything because Schiff has wasted his time in DC on this impeachment farce, they should vote him out in the primary. If he survives the primary, vote him out in November. If he survives the general election and the Republicans take back the House, censure him and remove him from Congress. There was no reason for this impeachment farce except his hatred of the President. All he as done during this session of Congress is holding clandestine one-sided meeting in the Capitol basement.

  4. Pencil neck, no one believe one word that comes out of your mouth. We witnessed this before your so called impeachment when after the American public heard the transcript AND heard you totally tell a lie when repeating that statement. You obviously have a beef with the president. The only one that is uncredible is YOU!

  5. Shytt is running scared. You are going to JAIL and you know it. The Dems are in full panic mode, and will fight to the death which they know is around the corner. Look it up…there are over 140K sealed indictments sitting there. The house of cards is finally coming down, and this turd will be in Gitmo.

  6. Schiff can suck some ☭Leftist☭ Ratfink journalists left nut for all I give a damn about what he thinks.
    He’s nothing but a piece of himself

  7. “FAIRNESS” ?? Talk about the pot calling the Kettle Black !! < the DEMS are So power hungry they will say ANYTHING and DO ANYTHING in their Attempt to BESMIRCH TRUMP and FOOL the Non-thinking American !! into believing this FARCE !!

  8. Who does Schiff, the piece of deranged GARBAGE, think he is to hold anyone accountable! You Schiff are a mad, crazy lunatic to say the least. When I see the look at your face in a picture, I think that you look what SATAN would look like. Where you are to be, you are now on your way, The decisions you make will take you down there.

  9. Dear Shiftless Schiff:

    You had better worried about you being ‘brought up on charges’ for the fair [?] investigation you held in the House. I hope Mitch proposes the following rule for the trial in the Senate. The Senate will use THE SAME RULES the House used after the names and rolls of the political parties are reversed! How many of the Dummycrat [thank you Diamond & Silk] Senators would vote for that rule??

    • Schiff wouldn’t know “fair and Impartial” if it bit him in the ass! This is the douchebag who has, for 3 years, been trying to frame the president! Schiff belongs in jail or left hanging from a tree!

  10. The party that will be held accountable is the party that denied the President and the American people a fair investigation in the House! They denied him: 1) due process 2) the presumption of innocent till proven guilty 3) they alleged NO CRIME worthy of impeachment and didn’t observe the Rules of Evidence and admitted hear-say and presumptions into ‘evidence’. [Sham investigation>>>Sham Trial or garbage in>>>garbage out]

  11. The Country is not supposed to get a fair trial, the accused is supposed to get a fair trial you moron! These non-criminal and baseless Articles of Impeachment are not even worthy of a trial in the Senate! Only the low information voters and the lame stream media think otherwise! If the Senate allows this to go forward, then all future Presidents will be subject to impeachment by the opposing party, just because that party lost the election and throws a temper tantrum! On the bright side, they are putting another feather in the hat of President Trump’s legacy. He will be the first United States President impeached by the House of Representatives and re-elected by their Constituents in the same year! Winning!

  12. Hey pencil neck, if I were you I would worry more about myself being held accountable the people are going to hold all those involved in this treasonable act accountable and we all know the penalty for treason is hanging, your skinny neck will fit very nicely in the noose.

  13. Shitt you don’t even know what fair is. That was the most horrible show I’ve ever seen. There a bunch of corrupt demorats that should be in jail right now and you’re one of them

  14. Schiff. You would not know fair if it bit you. We know exactly the crap your pulling. We also know. You are making Trump even more POPULAR. So ,thanks scum bag.

    • Pelosi, Shumer, Shiff, Nadler……..7 Dwarfs……..

      Nancy, Schmuck, Shiff, Nadler: Y our ” hour ” is over!

      The Senate’s time is at hand!

      Democrats in their two hearings, declined to pursue their own subpoenas, denied the President due process. But now…they want the Senate to redo their ‘homework’ and rerun their investigation That is not what this hearing is going to be> ” < !

      It's not the Senate's job to undo or clean up the mess you created!

      30 pieces of gold to have Jesus arrested, 30 gold pens to try to impeach the president.

  15. The only person in this circus entitled by law to a “fair trial” is the defendant, President Donald Trump, not the “Country” and certainly not the House mangers prosecuting the case
    Truth is this is all a farcical show trial — no one in their wildest delusions imagines that the Democrat buffoons will convince 20 Republicans (40% of them) that President Trump is guilty of the non-crimes they are alleging. Not really much different from watching professional wrestling except that we already know ahead of time who wins.

  16. Schiff and the rest of his clan have no right to talk about anything related to a ‘fair trial’ as they trashed the Constitution and the legal rights of our President and the rights of the American people. After Nov. these liars, including their madam speaker will be the ones to face accountability from a jury…called voters. The country was dragged through mud for 3 years and Nov. will be their pay off. In addition to…other jail benefits! The country had more than enough of these political incompetent and corrupt liars. They have abused the power of the office to a unimaginable level for our Democracy. They acted contrary to the constitution from their mafia like basement located quarters throughout the impeachment proceedings. They deprived the President the due process and stepped on the lawful rights of the voters. So, for him and the rest of the political herd…zipper in the mouth is the order of the day and patience as November is closing in fast!

  17. Adam Schiff uses the word FAIR like a 5-year-old uses the word FAIR. It means I get what I want when I want it. The only guarantee of fairness in our judicial system is given to the accused, not the accuser.

  18. This idiot has the guts to talk about a fair trial while they were holed up in the basement working on this sham impeachment.
    Maybe he needs eye surgery! The man is such an a hole can’t even look at him the liar.

  19. Really, secret hearing republicans could not attend. Republicans denied ability to call witnesses. Thats what you call fair? The democrats had their chance, the sent the articles over to the senate resting their case. You do not get to keep calling witness after witness after the fact. No crime was committed, only allegations based on hearsay. Grow up and stop watching Clinton News Network.

  20. Shiitt, I mean Schiff, You are a piss-ant congressman how are you or anyone through your association going to hold a U.S. Senator to any standard? They will do what they must to clean up the mess you made and put this mistake and waste of time to rest.

  21. So now Schiff is threatening senators to get the vote for impeachment. He needs to be removed right now. If Trump was to say something like that to congress if it were pelosi being impeached the Democrats and news would be all over him

  22. I have one question for Mr. Shifty: Did YOU provide fairness in your secret underground room, to the president? NO YOU DIDN’T! Yet you have the unmitigated gall to ask the senate for fairness???!!! Sir you do not deserve the air you breathe, nor the space you consume!

  23. Yes Schiff you are right for once and the 4 senators who did not vote for acquittal immediately will pay the price at the polls. . . and after the president wins again in 2020 elections they will be very lonely if they try to get any legislation passed for them in their states !

  24. Now Schiff is totally correct when the public see that the Jury has been working with the Defendant to stop the charges from being heard, when about 75% of the population say they want an open and fair trial, I do think that the Republicans will pay at the polls if it does not happen.
    Now the House investigation was open and above board with everything, now the Senate wants to apparently hide every thing, now the pop[ulation is not blind and will see what happens in this trial.

  25. Shitscff you will be held accountable for your sick ass in the voting poll. No unemployment for you, you just got fired by the American people

  26. When is circus going to come to an end!!! Schiff need to go to prison for his habitual lying…everyone knows this guy is crooked and there is nothing he says is true. Let’s get a grip and get rid of Schiff, Pelosi (alcoholic), Schumer (big mistake!!), Obummers, Clintons, all the evil people. We must vote all of them out…they have all ruined our country…while President Trump is making everything good and trying to correct what Obummer did to our country….while he was in he ruined it…he is a Muslim…don’t people know that???? President Trump was appointed by God and God has a plan for President Trump to implement. Let’s get a grip and prayer every day to keep our dear President in through 2024!!!!

  27. Schiff wants a fair trial? Okay, let’s talk about the “fair trial” that the Democrats in the House gave our President! He didn’t get a “fair trial”, in fact, he was railroaded by Schiff, Pelosi and the rest of the crooked, corrupt and treasonous Democrats. If, I were Trump I would have them all arrested and charged with treason and other crimes against the American People. Actually, I don’t think that any of these traitors deserve a fair trial, just line them up in front of a firing squad!

    • The hatred for President Trump that Pencil Neck Schitt Pelosi- The Walking Botox Lab and Nadler, aka, The Cube- he’s as tall as he is wide (5′ 3″ X 5′ 3″ ) is so intense that these idiots believe their own lies. This bobble head actually believes they conducted fair hearings in The House’s basement star chamber? All of these treasonous, lying, corrupt Democraps, and first and foremost, The Kenyan Fraud, need to be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law for their crimes against The USA.

  28. These are the most hypocritical people I have ever seen. If they are talking they are lying and these are supposed to be our elected officials. These people are the major issue we have going on with our country right now. They should be fixing the issues in their home districts now and just cannot get out of their own way. We have major issues with homelessness in a majority of these democrats home districts and they will not do a thing to address it. None of you have any credibility left and if the system was not so crooked you would not even be reelected. Please let the rest of us have our country back and as far as you are concerned I could care less……If you had any morals and conscience at all you would quit and start volunteering for your home neighborhoods.

    • If there is no FAIR TRIAL then the Democrats are the ones that will be accountable because they haven’t done anything legal so far in any thing they have tried to do. ESPECIALLY NOTHING DONE FOR OUR COUNTRY. THIS SHOULD BE ONE OF THE THINGS THEY ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR.ALSO.

  29. lins roberts is correct. There is nothing fair about Schiff’s actions or intentions. This is not a fight about “fairness” it is about congress people working AGAINST the American People out in the open and being allowed to continue to be in positions of authority. Schiff is openly for all to see and repeatedly guilty of what they erroneously accuse President Trump. When will Schiff be impeached along with Pelosi and Nadler?

  30. The Democrats will make this another Zoo. Just like the Kavanaugh hearing was. Witnesses will be falling out of the sky and folk’s assess perpetually….None of which can attest first hand to anything definitive …..Another parade of Ford and Avenatti wannabees…..

  31. No, it wouldn’t be the first without witnesses; the sham you Dems had going on where you refused to allow the GOP to call witnesses was the first, you idiot. It is is the accused legal right to have witnesses so you need to be held accountable yourself! And who died and put you in charge? I think you are having an identity crisis; you perceive yourself as the leader of this country. Pathetic!
