Rep. Adam Schiff Just Perfectly Responded To Trump’s Unhinged Statement About The Capitol Riot, Publicly Calls Him Out For Being “In Charge” On Jan. 6th

Former President Donald Trump released an unhinged statement on Monday and specifically called out Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif), a member of the House select committee investigating the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Trump called the bipartisan committee “highly partisan” and again referred to it as the “Unselect Committee.” At one point, he wrote, “What happened to the Capitol would have never happened if the people in charge did their job and looked at the intelligence,” seemingly oblivious that he was the president on Jan. 6. He also referred to Rep. Adam Schiff as “Shifty Adam Schiff.”

Schiff, who made the case for the former president’s impeachment at the first trial in 2020, thanked Donald Trump for the “shout-out,” then promptly reminded him of who was in charge on Jan. 6.


The twice-impeached one-term president can’t respond on his favorite social media platform since he was banned after inciting the deadly insurrection. But Twitter users weighed in.

This is why Trump is freaking out:

In an interview with NPR, Schiff explained what shocked him about the impeachment trial.

“What shocked me during the trial was the realization, as I listened to some of these [GOP] senators, that they understood the president was guilty,” he said. “They recognized that he was guilty. They were surprised by the abundance of evidence. … They only knew what they knew from watching Fox. But even when confronted with this evidence, it wasn’t enough to move them to give meaning to their oath, because it might cost them in their job or it might cost them a position in the Cabinet. And there was nothing they treasured quite so much as those things.”

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

They knew he was guilty then, and now they’re trying to blow it off as if the insurrection wasn’t a big deal. That’s called gaslighting.
