Schiff on Senate impeachment trial: Nothing Dems could have done differently

Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, said on Sunday that there is nothing Democrats could have done differently during the impeachment process and that the Democrats ’proved’ their case against President Trump. His comments come just two days after the Senate voted against calling any witnesses in the impeachment trial.

You kinda tied your hands when you ruahed the impeachment articles without waiting on the courts to uphold your subpoenas. There are a lot of things if done differently could have strengthened the case but that's not what you decided.

If Schiff truly believes that "nothing" could have been done differently, then he is completely delusional or mentally incompetent or some combination of the two.

So Schiff admits that Trump's acquittal was inevitable as no crime was committed.

I find it disgusting that media outlets just repeat his garbage without challenging it. "Couldn't you have waited for the courts to rule on the white house subpoenas?" "Couldn't Pelosi have held a vote authorizing your committee to issue white house subpoenas?" But no.. They regurgitate Shiff's line as if it's gospel.

One thing that could have been done differently is to actually try working with POTUS instead of trying to impeach simply because of not liking the results of 2016.

if they couldn't have a done any better I'm surprised they pushed for impeachment. There were left leaning news organizations speculating Trump wanted an Impeachment fight and they ended up giving it to him. Trump saw a boost in donations and in some polls. The only thing that helps me make sense of this is that the establishment Democrats want along with this a sort of strategic lawsuit to tell Trump that they'll waste his time and money if he digs around into the way their political dynasties make their money. (Turns out the kind of gig Hunter Biden had wasn't that uncommon).

Maybe if they chose better reasons for impeachment like I don't know... the emoluments clause or nepotism or supporting saudi genocide in yemen?

The House could of Impeached him over an actual crime? 1. Abuse of power? That's a partisan argument. 2. Obstruction of Congress? Literally one of the roles POTUS plays. it's the fucking power of veto. by these standards every president in history should of been Impeached.

They could have pressed for witnesses to be heard... on the house floor... rules are a mutable thing on capital hill... they could have jailed everyone forthwith for not complying with subpoenas. then we'd have seen the true face of Supreme Court (that was so easily stacked by Mr. McConnell... without so much as a whimper)... Democratic Party... what a joke... they all LOVE the Trump show... there are war and quantitative easing profits to create out of thin air.
