Republicans Note How Schiff Just Threw Nadler 'Under the Bus'

Lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff is doing some damage control on Wednesday. Damage that was done by his own colleague, fellow chairman and fellow impeachment manager Jerry Nadler. Late Tuesday night, as the Senate was debating (and rejecting) the amendments presented by Chuck Schumer, Nadler accused the GOP senators of breaking their constitutional oaths and of engaging in a White House "cover up."

"The only one who should be embarrassed, Mr. Nadler, is you for the way you’ve addressed this body,” White House lead counsel Pat Cipollone said in reply.

The back and forth was so tense that Chief Justice John Roberts had to admonish the teams and urge them to keep it civil.

"I wouldn’t have done that," Trump counsel Jay Sekulow said of Nadler's comments. "And then pointing that out on multiple times and talking to the United States Senate about their oath, I thought was a very dangerous move."

Perhaps that's why Schiff shielded Nadler from answering any reporters' questions on Wednesday.

President Trump was unimpressed by Nadler's remarks too, calling him a "sleazebag" during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
