Schiff opens a can of worms. Either he's a total idiot, or his true intention is to bring don Joe Biden and open the door to Elizabeth Warren. And so long as Warren refrains from taking a position on the Impeachment -- and focuses on more revelations of detailed plans for funding programs -- she can win.
Bernie Sanders, has age, a heart attack, and he's foolishly taken a position attacking Trump and siding with Schiff -- when, if he wants to be an attack dog, he should have attacked Biden over the 2014 Ukraine threat and the 2018 BOAST of his "quid pro quo" Ukraine blackmailing.
As Biden told the viewers on 23 January 2018, he successfully threatened the Ukraine President: "I'm leaving in six hours, you've got six hours. If you don't fire that prosecutor, United States will not give you $1 Billion in Aid" they said he didn't have the authority. As he told it, he implicated Obama in the blackmail by saying, "if you don't trust me call the president."
So, here we have Biden implicating Obama in what Schiff says in an impeachable crime.
No wonder Obama would not endorse his own Vice President... his VP implicated him in Blackmail using US Loan guarantees ... and did it with a hard deadline -- the worst possible form, but most classic, of blackmail.
Biden set out to boast of his criminality and destroy Obama's Legacy... and Schiff is going out of his way to assist in the destruction of that Legacy. Schiff is setting the stage for Obama being branded a criminal -- a blackmailer -- and the historians will have a field-day exploring every deal made by the Obama Administration made.
Did Obama buy Saudi backing or did they buy him with delayed payments -- Did he do something for which the multi-million dollar book deals were actually a delayed payment that laundered the money (who owned the firm that gave him the money and who were their partners ... the ones who might have funneled the money as "book royalty advances")?
Maybe Pelosi avoided the form,al Impeachment Investigation because she was a party to the Obama Administration criminality -- how did she get so rich?
23 January 2018 CFR Meeting Transcript portion:
JOE BIDEN, 23 JANUARY 2018: And that is I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption. They made—I mean, I’ll give you one concrete example. I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him.
I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
