Schiff tells senators why Trump must be removed: He's guilty, self-serving, and 'chose Rudy Giuliani' over AmericaDonald Trump has been a public figure for 40 years, and House impeachment lead prosecutor Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) drew on America’s familiarity with the president’s personal brand in Thursday’s nights closing arguments in Trump’s impeachment trial. Schiff and his fellow House managers spent the day making their case that Trump is guilty of abuse of power, and Schiff addressed the elephant in the room: “Okay, he’s guilty. Does he really need to be removed?”Yes, he said, and senators already know why.”No one is really making the argument ‘Donald Trump would never do such a thing!'” Schiff said. “Because of course we know that he would, and of course we know that he did,” even if “we can’t say it publicly.” He continued:> And this is why he needs to be removed: Donald Trump chose Rudy Giuliani over his own intelligence agencies. He chose Rudy Giuliani over his own FBI director. He chose Rudy Giuliani over his own national security advisers. When all of them were telling him this Ukraine 2016 stuff is kooky, crazy Russian propaganda, he chose not to believe them, he chose to believe Rudy Giuliani. That makes him dangerous to us, to our country. …> > Why would anyone in their right mind believe Rudy Giuliani over Christopher Wray? Because he wanted to, and because what Rudy was offering him was something that would help him personally, and what Christopher Wray was offering him was merely the truth. What Christopher Wray was offering him was merely the information he needed to protect his country and its elections. [Rep. Adam Schiff]Schiff gave some hypothetical examples. If Russia “starts blatantly interfering in our election again to help Donald Trump, can you have the least bit of confidence that Donald Trump will stand up to them and protect our national interest over his own personal interest?” he asked. “You know you can’t! Which makes him dangerous to this country.” And if China helps Trump, Schiff said, “you think he’s gonna call them out on it? Or you think he’s gonna give them a better trade deal?” The “sad truth,” he told the senators, is “you know you can’t count on him” to put his country before himself.The praise for Schiff’s oratory was effusive, but not universal. “I think people on our side were absolutely offended by what he had to say,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) told reporters afterward.More stories from theweek.com Democrats walked right into Mitch McConnell’s trap Texas legalized hemp, and Austin just responded to the resulting chaos by effectively decriminalizing weed The Oprah’s Book Club controversy, explained
