Talk about rich with BS!
Adam Schiff is now going around saying he takes no joy in these (fraudulent) impeachment hearings!
Give me a break!
Hannity had more to say on the story:
Rep. Adam Schiff doubled-down on House Democrats’ Thursday vote to formalize their impeachment inquiry against President Trump; saying his party “will not shrink” from their responsibilities.
“We take no joy in having to move down this road and proceed with the impeachment inquiry, but neither do we shrink from it,” said Schiff.
“The Founding Fathers understood that a leader might take hold of the Oval Office…who would place his personal and political interests above the interests of the country. They understood that might happen and they provided a mechanism to deal with it…called impeachment,” he added.
Democratic members of the House of Representatives approved new legislation Thursday that formalizes their impeachment inquiry against President Trump; passing the resolution along party lines.
The final vote was 232-196. Two Democrats voted against the investigation.
“A yes vote on this resolution today gives a stamp of approval to a process that has been damaged beyond all repair and a blatant and obvious coup to unseat a sitting president of the United States,” Rep. Ross Spano, R-Fla., said.
“I do not take any pleasure in the need for this resolution,” Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said. “We are here because the facts compel us to be here.”
“The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” posted Trump shortly after the vote.
And from NBC:
Rep. Adam Schiff: 'I did not take any pleasure' in leading impeachment inquiry
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who has been leading the investigation of the impeachment inquiry into Trump, said somberly that he “did not take any pleasure” in leading the process.
He defended his decisions to hold interviews in a private setting, saying that the “work has necessarily occurred behind closed doors because we have the task of finding the facts” despite efforts by several lawmakers and agencies, including the Justice Department “to obstruct.” He added that the resolution will lead the process into a more open chapter.
“This resolution sets the stage for the next phase of our investigation. One in which the American people will have the opportunity to hear from the witnesses first hand,” he said.
