On Wednesday, Adam Schiff, who’s leading the Democrats’ effort to impeach Donald Trump, said any efforts to interfere with their investigation by anyone in the Trump administration “will be considered as evidence of obstruction of justice.” Real cute, considering that it was Trump himself who wanted the Zelensky call transcript released, and the whistleblower complaint as well. Schiff added, “We’re not fooling around here.”

Oh, really? Wasn’t Adam Schiff the one who made up a fictitious version of Trump’s phone with Ukrainian president Zelensky because the actual transcript wasn’t damning enough, only to then claim it was a “parody”?

Even if you choose to accept Schiff’s parody excuse as a legitimate explanation, how does one square that with “We’re not fooling around here”? How does one square that with the fact Schiff claimed for two years he had evidence of Russian collusion even though he didn’t? Schiff has been “fooling around” with impeachment threats for three years now, how dare he pretend to be the adult in the room? Democrats have been making a mockery of the entire process because they’ve been calling for Trump to be impeached since he was elected.
