House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff told MSNBC on Wednesday that President Donald Trump would stoop to any level to win the election, saying there was “no tactic beneath him, no bigotry too great, no racist appeal too much, no political dirty trick beyond the pale.”
Guest-host Ali Velshi said to Schiff, “A lot of people just don’t like Donald Trump. They forget the impeachment was about a dirty election trick. A dirty election trick is something you and I talked about I think a week ago with the intelligence that you have had that you like Americans to find out about, but you can’t right now.”
Schiff: We have ‘a president of the United States who will break any law, rule, abuse of power of his office, who will cheat…’
“This is another one,” Ali Velshi said. “If he’s helping Kanye West to run with the aim of defeating Joe Biden, falls into the same basket.”
Schiff replied, “Well, it does. It falls into the basket of a president of the United States who will break any law, rule, abuse of power of his office, who will cheat, and no strategy is beneath him.”
“You know, this idea of recruiting a third party candidate that you hope will siphon votes from your opponent, it is an old ploy, but it is among the dirtiest of the dirty tricks,” Schiff said. “You never wanted to be associated with it. But here it is all out in the open.”
On meeting with Kanye West amid his WH bid, Jared Kushner says, “He has some great ideas for what he’d like to see happen in the country and that’s why he has the candidacy that he’s been doing.https://t.co/oS4vbg3ShG

Schiff accuses Trump of racism: ‘It is not even a dog-whistle anymore. It is a whistle that everybody can hear’
“The president’s son-in-law dispatched to meet with Kanye,” Schiff continued. “They’re not even hiding it.”
The Democrat added, “You know, Barbara Boxer, who was just wonderful on your show, talked about the dog-whistle in terms of the suburban households. It is not even a dog-whistle anymore. It is a whistle that everybody can hear.”
Chairman Schiff: "Donald Trump has clearly not deterred the Russians from engaging. They are at it again. If anything, I think, the sum total of the president's words and actions is to encourage the Russians to help him."https://t.co/uxx6Zt1R7m

Schiff claims ‘Republicans in the Congress won’t say a word’ about Trump supposedly destroying the Republican Party
Schiff went on, “This is where the president has descended to low, no tactic beneath him, no bigotry too great, no racist appeal too much, no political dirty trick beyond the pale. And the terrible thing is the Republicans in the Congress won’t say a word.”
“They are watching their party destroyed,” he said. “They’re watching the ethics of the party leader just tear their party asunder, and they don’t have the guts to do anything or say anything about it.”
“That’s what enables this,” Schiff insisted.
