Adam Schiff urges 'good conscience' Republicans in Trump administration to step down: 'It is time for you to resign'

He says they can't 'continue to serve the country by serving this president'

Adam Schiff says Democrats could subpoena intel officials

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “good conscience” Republicans should step down after President Trump told reporters he would have to “see what happens” with election results before committing to a peaceful transfer of power.

 

“We're going to have to see what happens," Trump said during the White House news conference when asked if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the election. "You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster."

 

Schiff, D-Calif., joined “The Rachel Maddow Show” later in the evening to sound the alarm.

 

“There is no question he means exactly what he said. And people fail to take it seriously at our national peril. This is a moment that I would say to any Republican of good conscience working in the administration -- it is time for you to resign,” Schiff said. “It is time for you to resign.”

 

“If you have been debating about whether you can continue to serve the country by serving this president, you can’t. It is time to resign,” Schiff added.

 

Schiff then urged former members of Trump’s administration to speak out, claiming anyone who remains silent is partially responsible for the “chaos” that would come if the president doesn’t accept election results.

 

“I would say to those who have been on the sidelines maintaining a dignified silence who have served in the administration in the past, you cannot maintain your silence any longer. You have to maintain dignified speech now. You have to speak out. Do not wait until after the election,” he said. “Do not wait until we have the chaos the president wants after the election when he seeks to, as he said, get rid of the ballots, because if you do wait, knowing what is to come, you will share some of the burden and responsibility for that chaos that comes.”

 

Trump has been an outspoken critic of mail-in ballots and told Fox News’ Chris Wallace in July that he wouldn’t commit to accepting the results of the 2020 election prematurely. Trump reiterated his disdain for mail-in ballots on Wednesday, but it seems Schiff didn’t appreciate his remarks.

 

“This is a time for all good people conscience to speak, and to act, to preserve our democracy, because there is no longer any question about this president's intentions. His autocratic intentions are as clear as the writing on the wall,” Schiff said.

I tried calling and got the following message:   "Hi, this is Adam, I'm away from my desk, please listen to the menu....if you know your party's extension, you may key ahead at any time."

Dude.    Pelosi moldy piss flaps?    That literally made me gag.   

using 'good conscience" with Demonrats would be an oxymoron.

I tried calling and got the following message:

Dial 1.....for hoaxes, planted evidence, and pictures of Nadler's nutsack.

 

Dial 2.....to order fake Russian actors and whistle blowers.

 

Dial 3.....for anonymous sources, un-named officials, and pictures of Pelosi's moldy piss flaps.

 

Dial 4.....for life-sized card board cut-outs of Joe Biden.

 

Dial 5.....to interview disgruntled former military traitors.

 

Dial 6.....to order my new book, "Little Man, Big Member."

Every single GOP politician either supports or will come to support holding onto power by force if Trump loses.

 

I don't know why anyone would think they would choose this moment to suddenly care about doing the right thing. It comes across as pure PR at this point.

Schiff, Sept. 26: It reads like a classic organized crime shakedown. Shorn of its rambling character and in not so many words, this is the essence of what the president communicates. We’ve been very good to your country, very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand. Lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, not just any people, I am going to put you in touch with the attorney general of the United States, my Attorney General Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him. And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy. You’re going to love him. Trust me. You know what I’m asking. And so I’m only going to say this a few more times. In a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.

 

 

Schiff plays the part of a classic insurrectionist Prog. Shorn of any character and in a thousand lying words, this is the essense of what is needed to hoax this president out of office. ...

What about Biden?   I’snt he forming attorneys to challenge?

 

If Trump loses and refuses to give up power, he will challenge. Biden has stated he will respect the final result of the election.

 

It won't end there though, because Trump is riling up his base and encouraging them to start killing people if he loses.
