‘Shifty’ Adam Schiff Hesitates to Put House Democrats on the Record with Vote for Impeachment Inquiry

Schiff is hesitant to put the decision to a vote the House.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has said that he “may not” put the impeachment inquiry up to a vote in the House, as Democratic Party leaders prepare to push the measure unilaterally.

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman could be worried about putting House Democrats who serve in more conservative districts on the record heading into next year’s contentious general elections.

“We may have a vote on an impeachment proceeding, or we may not have a vote. Ultimately that will be the decision that we make together with our leadership. But no one should be under the apprehension or misapprehension that were we to vote and authorize, by the full vote of the House, an impeachment inquiry that that will in any way stop the White House complaints, attacks, etc,” Schiff said at an event in New York City on Monday.

“They will just move on to the next hurdle they want to put in the way. So, we should be clear about what is happening here. This is merely an effort to delay, distract, deter. And we will not be delayed, and we won’t be distracted, and we will not be deterred,” he added.

Some Democrats believe that the impeachment inquiry should be voted upon in order to legitimize the proceedings against the President moving forward.

“It is one act after another of obstruction of justice by the White House, by the State Department, and by the attorney general. And I say, give them more rope to hang themselves,” Rep. Harley Rouda (D-CA) said.

“If Nancy asked me, I would say sure, let’s have a vote. Everybody’s on record, so they’re not going to vote any differently. What’s the danger in having a vote to formalize it?” Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) said.

“They want a fight? OK, let’s arm ourselves completely and totally with the full power of Congress,” Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA) told CNN. “I do think that it’s time for us to put a vote on the floor — a resolution for the inquiry structured in such a way that it can move forward with full power of the Congress behind it.”

Schiff is acting like he does not care about the implications that a vote on the impeachment inquiry may have during next year’s election.

“Let the chips fall where they may,” he said during the Monday event.

But the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans are calling Schiff’s bluff. They continue to demand a full vote on the impeachment inquiry, and certainly would point out the Democrats in conservative-leaning districts who joined in on their party’s extreme partisan witch hunt against the President.

“Democratic House members cannot be allowed to hide behind Speaker Nancy Pelosi when it comes to an impeachment inquiry of President Trump. They should – and must – vote to open an inquiry of impeachment so their constituents, country, and history can evaluate their actions,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said in a statement released earlier this month.

President Trump is not scared by Shifty Schiff’s tactics, and he is ready for anything the desperate Democrats are preparing to throw his way.
