Schiff Outrageously Claims Trump Is ‘Pathologically’ Continuing To ‘Endanger Our Democracy’

House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) showed that his obsession with Donald Trump is still going as strong as ever on Wednesday, when he went on MSNBC to celebrate the fact that Facebook is upholding it’s ban on the former president.

Schiff told host Andrea Mitchell that it was necessary for Facebook to do this because Trump is “pathologically” continuing to “endanger our democracy.”

Mitchell Questions Schiff

“I want to ask you about the decision by Facebook this morning,” Mitchell said. “The oversight board acknowledging that Donald Trump created an environment it called a serious risk of violence on January 6 with his posts. They opposed an indefinite suspension of his accounts.”

“The former president issued a statement in response saying that free speech was taken away from the president of the United States because of what he called the radical left lunatics are afraid of the truth,” she added. “Is Facebook violating Donald Trump’s constitutional right to free speech?”

Schiff Blasts Trump

“No,” Schiff replied. “The First Amendment protects Donald Trump and every American from the government regulating speech. It doesn’t say that private companies need to use their platforms to air patent falsehoods that endanger the country that incite insurrection. So no, I think Facebook is trying to have a consistent policy. At least its oversight board is trying to make sure that it is consistent in how it treats people.”

“The President here is continuing to go out and push the big lie about the election, continuing, I think, to endanger our democracy by doing that,” he added. “So he continues to make the case that he would violate the policies if they readmitted him.”

Schiff Says Trump ‘Is Incapable Of Changing’

“And I think frankly, pathologically, he is incapable of changing. So this is a temporary ban. It will likely be, if we are fortunate, a permanent ban because the president will not stop the lies about the last election or lies about the next one,” Schiff concluded. “He will incite people if that’s what’s necessary to suit his narrow personal interests. And that should violate any good corporate citizen’s policies.”

It seems that despite the fact that Trump has been out of office for months, he is still living rent-free in Schiff’s head. Sad!
