GOP's 'Cult' of Trump Makes Impeachment Unlikely, Says Adam Schiff

GOP's 'Cult' of Trump Makes Impeachment Unlikely, Says Adam Schiff

Asked if House Democrats were waiting for signs of support from the public or among Senate Republicans, he said: "We think that we have to bring the public along".

After Special Counsel Robert Mueller made public remarks this week regarding his investigation, which included an announcement that he was resigning from the Department of Justice, several 2020 Democratic candidates for president said impeachment proceedings needed to begin 'immediately'.

"I believe that you've got to push back on our government when they're trying to demand to travel across the country to sit with them on a whim, miss work and miss your family", he said outside the courthouse.

Despite Schiff and Pelosi's stance that Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings yet, House Majority Whip James Clyburn feels impeachment will happen 'at some point'.

She has faced backlash from those who feel the president should be impeached on grounds of obstruction of justice. But we're not there yet, ' he continued. "So I don't see this as being out of whack with what the people's aspirations are".

Schiff conceded that impeachment proceedings would be, "in a way ... the ultimate form of censure in the House".

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said that impeachment "is destined for failure" without Republican support, while blasting the party as "the cult of the president's personality" and stating that he is actually against "putting the country" through impeachment proceedings.

Schiff still wants Mueller to testify, saying he has a "final duty" to appear before Congress, even though the special counsel indicated in a rare public statement last week he would prefer to simply have the report speak for itself.

"He has not been complying with subpoenas". Barr has separately been given new authority by Trump to disclose documents and information on the origin of the Russian Federation probe, a top priority of the president and his Republican allies on Capitol Hill.

"I know this, I got questions for him", Jordan said on ABC.

Trump told reporters Thursday as he departed the White House, "Russia didn't help me at all".

President Donald Trump is muddying the waters over Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.
