Poor Adam Schiff, his ears must be burning this evening. The constitutional scholars over at Fox News are pondering his fate. No, Alan Dershowtiz and Ken Starr are not on the tube tonight. They’re washing down Xanax with scotch, in anticipation of tomorrow’s ordeal, trying to sound lucid when the words coming out of their mouths are total absurdity and their former legal colleagues are screaming with laughter and pointing. No, would you believe we’re talking about Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes and Laura Ingraham? Now, there’s a formidable brain trust, if ever I saw one. And what came out of their conversation is…….unique would describe it.

Laura Ingraham chimes in, twice, with “it’s not clear that congressmen can’t be impeached.” To whom is it not clear? Because to the rest of us, it’s as clear as glass. The constitution does not provide for the impeachment of congressmen, but it does provide for their removal, via a two thirds vote of the House. Even Devin Nunes knew that much. That’s good, because with his antics, he’s one hell of a lot more likely to get removed from congress than Adam Schiff.
Matt Gaetz just sat there talking about how Schiff, “lied when he misrepresented the transcript, he lied when he said there was more than circumstantial evidence on the Russia probe and he’s been lying for days on the floor of the United States Senate.” Well, try not to trip over him while he’s lying there, Matt, because you might fall and break your ass and we wouldn’t want that.
It’s really a shame that Donald Trump is peeved at Matt Gaetz these days and didn’t want him as part of his impeachment defense team. Gaetz would be great trading non sequiturs masquerading as insight with Cipollone, Sekulow and the rest and being righteously indignant. That’s a skill, one of the few that Gaetz has. That and ordering pizza. Doesn’t take much to get elected to congress from Florida these days.
It’s always a good idea to listen to the broadcasts over on Planet Fox and wonder how in the name of God our country ever split into two separate realities, like a broken mirror. That must be it, the country is like a mirror, it got dropped on it’s head in 2016 and dear God don’t tell me we’ve got another four years of this on top of the three we’ve already served as bad luck?
