During House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's lengthy, nearly three hour opening argument for impeachment yesterday, he launched an attack on the very democracy Democrats claim over and over again to be protecting.
"The president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box. For we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won," Schiff declared.

That's right America. You can't be trusted to vote for the correct presidential candidate, aka a Democrat Schiff and his ilk approve of, and therefore President Trump must be removed from office immediately.
??. So does this mean voters should never trust the vote anymore? They can only trust lawmakers to decide when a President crosses the line to get kicked out—& What qualifies to kick out that President? And only those lawmakers can do it? Not voters? Ever? https://t.co/V4tmgAdDXQ— Bret Baier (@BretBaier) January 23, 2020
This insane statement came after Schiff harkened back to his thoroughly debunked narrative about Russian collusion in the 2016 election. He argued that during his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump did everything possible to set up "cheating" in the 2020 election. There is no evidence of this, including in the call transcript which the White House released in full.
Adam Schiff's opening argument is about...Russia. Russia again. He's arguing President Trump is working with or emboldening the Russians to go after Joe Biden. This is an extension of Schiff's Mueller conspiracy theory that never came true.— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) January 22, 2020
Schiff now arguing that we can't wait for the 2020 presidential election because it cannot be determined the vote will be fairly taken. Sounds more like, unless a Democrat wins, Schiff believes the election will be stolen by again...Russians! (which didn't happen in 2016 btw)— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) January 22, 2020
Democrat impeachment managers will continue their arguments today. President Trump's personal attorneys and White House Counsel will give their defense and rebuttal on Saturday.
