Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) came unglued on Wednesday over reports that President Donald Trump is considering pardoning former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Back in 2017, Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts he had with Russia, but he later attempted to withdraw this plea, according to The Hill.
While appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” Schiff accused Trump of “acting like an organized crime figure” because he feels that the president is trying to reward people who lie for him.
“It would send a message that at least as far as President Trump is concerned, if you lie on his behalf, if you cover up for him, he will reward you,” Schiff said. “He will protect you, but only if he thinks it’s in his interest.”
“There are others that lied for him that he’s not going to extend that kind of service to, but it just, frankly reflects so ill on our democracy, on the United States,” he added.
“Imagine what people around the world think when we have a president who’s acting like an organized crime figure,” Schiff continued. “But this is who Donald Trump is. It’s who he was on the way into the presidency. It will be exactly who he is on his last days of the presidency.”

Schiff Admits Trump Could Legally Pardon Flynn
Despite this rant, Schiff could not deny that legally Trump has every right to pardon Flynn, “assuming that it’s not on the basis of some illicit quid pro quo.” However, the Democrat made a point of adding that he does not believe that Trump can pardon himself.
“There are other limitations on the pardon power, but it is very broad and subject to abuse as he has demonstrated,” Schiff said.

Schiff was one of the Democrats who led the impeachment witch hunt charge against Trump during his presidency. That’s why it would not be surprising if he’s planning to lead yet another witch hunt effort against Trump and those close to him, once the president leaves office.
The hatred Schiff has for President Trump remains nothing short of disturbing.

DIrty Schiff needs to spend a week or two reading the US Constitution. Then he should spend 10 yrs in jail for what he did to this president. He's a corrupt, lying, criminal.
Your post and red nose are indicative of alcoholic cerebellar degeneration. Seek help!
You have the salute, and uniform down pat. Welcome to your New United Socialist States of Amerika.
You clowns voted for it.
There's a solution! Bathe!
Who said I’d let or want that perverted pedo sniffing me and massaging me while breathing heavily into the side of my neck? He does it to little girls and any female he is able to grope!
Biden wouldn't touch yours with a ten foot pole. You'd also need a gas mask to combat the odorous vapors.
That’s president-Select Groper Joe.
Thought for a minute there that shifty was talking about pres-elect biden
Someone get Schiff a Kleenex, and tell him to get lost…
Schiff like Barry Sotero had best fill his carpet bag with all the loose cash he can carry and run as far and fast as he can…..The Barr is coming….
Adam Schiff needs to be imprisoned. Can you imagine how many innocent people he put in prison with his prosecution tactics? He conjures up a crime, finds a person to tag the crime with, paints a picture in his head, tells himself the story enough times that he convinces himself it’s true. Then he takes his victim to court, and tries the person for a crime he never committed, convinces the jury of his dumb story line, and puts the poor innocent guy in prison for 10-50 years. Then Schiff for brains pulls a John Kerry and submits an award for himself as prosecutor of the year.
What has Adam done for the people he represents? Or has he been spending all his time in DC making himself rich?
Sch iff for brains should be in prison along with his co-conspirators!
The whole flock of bird brains are the most disgraceful birds of a feather in the history of this country.
If Schiff for Brains is against it, it must be good for America. This is possibly the most disgraceful POS to ever be in Congress.
Remember when Hugo Chavez went to the UN and spoke? He said, “The devil came here yesterday and it smells of sulfur still today.” He was referring to GW Bush.
I believe it also pertains to Schiff, he smells of sulfur every day.
Schiff is so full of Schiff that his breath stinks. I hope he has a coronary when Trump pardons Flynn.
"You’re right, Donald Trump is anointed by God!"
Please, genuflect when you make those Godly pronouncements! You act as though he actually fkew the CCP into our country just to infect masses of people sitting and waiting in their residential homes while infected folks were brought into a vulnerable community to spread the disease. You act as though Donald Trump failed to use the Hospital Ship of Hope, or the military field hospital to take the infected folks there instead of the old folks homes. You act as though he wasn’t listening to his little Virus specialist who told him we didn’t need to isolate. Who intended to have the virus spread?
Dr Fauci. First it was no mask, no need to isolate. Then it was isolate!!! Isolate!! Wear your masks!! Wash your hands! So if Fauci knew about Andrew Cuomo stuffing old folks homes with virus cases nd causing thousands nd thousands of deaths, why didn’t Fauci issue an edict to keep virus riddled cases away from the vulnerable?? He saw what Cuomo was doing. Yet he didn’t say a word. Yet, you seem to think it was all Donald Trumps fault all those people died in NYC. Groper Joe would not have had all the equipment available, the masks, the ventilators, and the PPE available in record time like Trump was able to pull off in record time.
You’re right, Donald Trump is anointed by God!
Trump initially failed to inform the public what an efficiently spreading respiratory virus for which we have no vaccine and no antiviral meant. The Trump administration actively abdicated control of issues to local, state, and private actors.
Off the cuff:
Plan: Utilize the existing National Security pandemic infrastructure set up by the Obama presidency
Failure: Trump politicized science and disbanded the NSC directorate for global health and security and bio-defense.
Plan: CDC would invest in producing enough reagents for all public health labs in the country
Failure: Shortages and delays have been rampant.
Plan: The administration would give states clear and timely guidance about community mitigation
Failure: Guidance has been uneven and undermined by the president
Plan: Government officials would give the public “accurate, consistent and timely” information about the pandemic.
Failure: The administration’s messaging has been all over the place, and political voices have drowned out health experts
Plan: Robust international cooperation, including support for the World Health Organization
Failure: The administration left and defunded the WHO
Plan: Faster production and distribution of protective masks, including reusable ones
Failure: Widespread and dangerous shortages of masks for health care workers.
Plan: Continuous monitoring of the pandemic crisis and decision making
Failure: Trump, "We're rounding the corner." 367 rounds of golf to date.
Please, tell us all what you think Donald Trump should have done. We are all waiting to hear what you think would have stopped a virus from spreading. Oh, and don’t forget the pandemic in Chi Raq of STD-Gonorrhea. How should he control the spread of that disease too???
I find it interesting you place Godlike qualities and abilities on Donald Trump and treat him like a demon. Should Donald Trump have waved a stick over the nation to keep all of us from dying? Should he have turned into the same dictator as Governors; Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, Whittmer, and all the other socialist governors whose states were going bankrupt before the CCP purchased virus was released?
You can’t see this whole thing was an election interference tool and a voter fraud scheme???
Tell us, what Should Donald Trump have done?
Perhaps Schiff's fellow Trump-hating lunatics should also follow Robert's advice. (hint, hint Simon)
Does your Mommy know your playing on the computer again ?
Perhaps you should speak with Governor CUOMO a/k/a FREDO #2, who killed thousands when he ordered COVID-19 patients into nursing homes. It's very clear you are in dire need of a mental health evaluation.
DEMOCRATS = COMMUNISTS = CRIMINALS. Period
The debacle of Covid exacerbated by the total lack of Trump's opportunity for leadership, especially after he learned that the virus is deadly, highly contagious and spread through the air. How dare he not garner the power of his office to do the right thing and lead by example. Unforgivable and cannot be excused away. He has tens of thousands of American deaths on his hands. His inaction TRUMPS any accomplishments his supporters can pull out of their ass.
Hey schiff, I assumed once you learned you were WHELPED from a WHITE SWINE (pig) that was Impregnated by a BLACK DOG (canine), we would never hear from you again.
It's time you committed SUICIDE, just do it you know you want to die.
The unabashed liar Adam Schiff is still trying to get us to think anything he says is worth listening to no less believable. Hopefully the people in CA will wake up & get him out of here.
More "BullSchiff" !
Just so. Apparently he rants about alleged lying because he himself lies so easily & often. The guy's a long-running bad joke–& any other name you want to call him!
You see corruption and lying has consequences Schiff. Where is the Russian hoax and collusion? Seems to me you need to be removed from your position for lying to the American people.
Go for it Donald.
Your sentiments are in line with Trump and Putin. MAGA!
Better act like an organized criminal,than organized club of lunaticsof Demorats with Alfa lunatic shitt.
