(UnitedVoice.com) – Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) just made a callback to Obama, which is a popular strategy among the Left. He attempted to “reveal” an unduly biased partisanship by saying that Obama would have certainly been impeached for the same things Trump is being accused of doing. Specifically, Schiff thinks Obama would have been charged with the “abuse of power” article.
While Obama certainly did a lot of things that were bad for America, he only would have been impeached if he had done something worthy of impeachment.
Schiff went on to try and draw a parallel between Trump’s phone call with Ukraine and Obama’s 2012 “hot mic” moment where he told former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev he’d have more “flexibility” after his re-election.
Of course, Obama didn’t act upon that statement or try to bribe the previous Russian president. And neither did Trump.
Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, Trump’s defender, said that even “if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.”
Shifty Schiff is trying to get President Trump impeached by alluding to false parallels.
