Adam Schiff blasts Kevin McCarthy for proposing to expel him from Congress

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Kevin McCarthy will take down his boss on behalf of Mar-a-Lago and will do whatever it takes to prevent him from being elected to the Senate.


When asked if he was surprised McCarthy had suggested he be banned from Alex Wagner Tonight, Schiff said, “Nothing he does surprises me.” It’s the same guy who gave the surveillance video to Tucker Carlson. He will do whatever Trump asks of him, and I’m sure Trump is pleased that McCarthy and the Republicans are after me in the House of Representatives. It’s about pleasing your boss in Mar-a-Lago, and the crowd loves Donald Trump. So it doesn’t surprise me. McCarthy has also made it clear that he wants to do whatever he can to prevent me from being elected to the Senate, where he knows I could more effectively retaliate against these efforts to destroy the rule of law. I think that’s part of what’s at work here.”

It has become apparent that McCarthy’s mission is to punish Adam Schiff for upholding the rule of law and ensuring Trump was impeached for attempting to blackmail Ukraine and withholding congressional-approved military aid to protect the country Forcing Ukrainians to interfere in the 2020 elections for him.

Rep. Schiff was extremely blunt. Trump wants Schiff destroyed, and McCarthy is following the former president’s will. Outside of Trump himself, it’s rare that a person in a position of power looks as consistently weak as Kevin McCarthy.

Speaker McCarthy is trying to stop Schiff from winning the election for the vacant Senate seat in California because of the message it would send if Schiff were to defy Trump and be rewarded by voters with a promotion to the US Senate would.

Kevin McCarthy is trying to stop Adam Schiff, but there’s a very good chance that Schiff will survive both Trump and McCarthy.
