House Impeachment Manager Agrees With Us: Schumer Guilty of Threat
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio comments on the Schumer-Schiff impeachment campaign and notes Adam Schiff agrees with Public Advocate and Mark Levin reasoning that "Pay the Price" is a threat.
In his own words, Adam Schiff who is complaining about Donald Trump inciting a mob and claims Trump using the words "pay the price" is a threat. Using this reasoning, Adam Schiff agrees with Public Advocate that Chuck Schumer using the same exact words "pay the price" regarding the Supreme Court is guilty of threats and should be removed from office.
Adam Schiff: Trump Saying I Should Pay a Price Is 'Intended to Be' a Threat
Moments after President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday morning that lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't "paid the price yet" for his role in impeachment, Schiff said that the president's post was "intended to be" a threat.
Towards the end of his appearance on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, Schiff was asked by host Chuck Todd about the pushback he's received from GOP senators for closing out his arguments on Friday by referencing a CBS News report that the White House had warned Republicans their heads would be on "pikes" if they crossed him and voted for additional witnesses.
"What do you make of the criticism that some Republican senators who you might want to see vote for witnesses didn't like your 'head on a pike' comment," Todd wondered. "[Lisa] Murkowski, [Susan] Collins and [Joni] Ernst, all three Republican senators who might be open to witnesses thought you got too personal."
"I don't think it was personal to refer to the CBS story," the House Intelligence Committee chairman replied. "What may be personal, though, and I think I have to be very candid about this, is I made the argument that it's going to require moral courage to stand up to this president. And this is a wrathful and vindictive president. Look at the president's tweets about me today saying that I should pay a price."
Text of Tweet:
Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!

The Meet the Press host then inquired whether or not Schiff felt that the president's tweet represented a threat against him.
"I think it's intended to be," Schiff stated. "But look, it is going to be very difficult for some of these senators to stand up to this president. It really is. There's just no question about it."
