The leftist hypocrisy rears it’s ugly head whenever the opportunity presents itself. And that happens to be pretty often.
This time, we learn of Adam Schiff’s true feelings about impeachment.
Whenever the word impeachment comes up, Schiff is definitely one of the first names that comes to mind. He created a circus with his so-called hearings. And now, it seems he’s ignoring his very own criticisms.
Fox News explains:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., arguably the most visible face of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, has brushed off GOP criticism that the spectacle leaves him ignoring critical pieces of legislation and his own constituents in California’s 28th District.
But 20 years ago, Schiff was using that same argument when he first ran for Congress against Republican incumbent James Rogan.
“I think impeachment for most people in this district is only the most graphic illustration of an incumbent who has put the national partisan, ideological fights ahead of representing his district,” Schiff, then a California state senator, said during an interview with NBC at the time regarding Rogan’s role in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. “People want to decide this on the basis of who’s going to serve our community.”
Schiff was so passionate about his disagreement with impeachment that he based his campaign largely on his opponents involvement with impeaching Clinton.
If fact, it was a key talking point whenever Schiff was interviewed.
Now, Schiff’s past is coming back to haunt him.
Schiff should be careful moving forward. Clearly, his seat is up for election in 2020. And Schiff will face the same fate and the Congressman before him. Especially since Schiff focuses on impeachment while real problems, such as homelessness, plague his district.
Fox points out:
Another candidate running for Schiff’s seat, Jennifer Barbosa, echoed Early’s comments during a recent interview on “Fox & Friends,” while claiming that Schiff has done nothing to combat the rise of homelessness in his district.
Schiff’s 28th congressional district has seen a 12 percent spike in homelessness over the last year, with 59,000 homeless people now living in Los Angeles County, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And 75.2 percent of those homeless citizens are unsheltered and without refuge.
“Adam Schiff has been my congressman since 2012. He became my congressman through the redistricting process,” Barbosa, an independent, said. “Since he became my congressman he has not presented any legislation that’s become law. In terms of homelessness, what he’s done is he’s basically rubber-stamped Maxine Waters’ bill to deal with homelessness, and her bill essentially replicated the same failed policies that [L.A.] Mayor [Eric] Garcetti has implemented in our city over the past few years.”
This is just one example of the ridiculousness going on in our country right now. We have homeless people looking for shelter. Further, we have children being trafficked as sex slaves. And we have communities where poverty affects everything from the education available to the food on the table. But democrats continue to waste millions of dollars on these so-called investigations.
Back to Work
We need congress to get back to work. It’s time to stop wasting our resources. Instead of problem-solving for our nation, democrats are focused on getting rid of Trump. As I wrote earlier, it’s tunnel vision, and it defies all logic.
“Adam Schiff is a total hypocrite,” Eric Early, a Republican attorney challenging Schiff in 2020, told Fox News. “He first ran for Congress opposing impeachment and saying he would fix problems in the district. Now, two decades of completely abandoning our district later, Schiff thinks this impeachment outrage is a good idea, and he still hasn’t fixed a single problem in the district.”
“He disrespects America by trying to undo the 2016 election and spends all this time putting on makeup for his next TV hit,” Early added. “He’s a national disgrace, and California voters deserve better.”
Sadly, we won’t get better until 2020 rolls around and we drain this swamp with a vengeance.
