Schiff: ‘Dangerous’ For DOJ to Not Prosecute Trump

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that it would be “far more dangerous” for the Department of Justice not to investigate and potentially prosecute former President Donald Trump.

Partial transcript as follows:

BRENNAN: I want to also ask you, the vice-chair of the committee, Liz Cheney, said not prosecuting former President Trump over the attack on the Capitol would be a much graver constitutional threat to the country than the political difficulties involved with bringing charges. She said this in an ABC interview. She also said there are possible criminal referrals, not just one, but multiple. Do you agree?

SCHIFF: I do. I do. You know, for four years, the Justice Department took the position that you can’t indict a sitting president. If the Department were now to take the position that you can’t investigate or indict a former president. Then, a president becomes above the law. That’s a very dangerous idea that the founders would have never subscribed to. Even more dangerous, I think in the case of Donald Trump. This- Donald Trump is someone who has shown when he’s not held accountable, he goes on to commit worse and worse abuses of power. So I agree with Judge Carter in California, I think there was evidence that the former President engaged in multiple violations of the law, and that should be investigated.

RENNAN: But there will be a political calculus to this as well. This is an incredibly divided country right now. Millions of people voted for the former president and still believe, wrongly, that he won the election- prosecuting him, isn’t there a very high risk to that?

SCHIFF: You know, it’s certainly not a step to be taken lightly at all. At the same time, immunizing a former president who has engaged in wrongdoing, I would agree with our vice chair- I think is more dangerous than anything else, and the decision not to move forward to the investigation or not to move forward to the prosecution, because of someone’s political status or political influence or because they have a following. To me, that is a far more dangerous thing to our Constitution than following the evidence wherever it leads, including when it leads to a former president.

    • Trump is a Maniac and should never ever get close to the White House again, trump doesn’t have the characteristics to back to the White House every other words come out of trump mouth is a lie, Adam Schiff is trump should be prosecuted to the fullest otherwise trump will be allowed to extremely more damage than trump have already done, trump is a very dangerous man mentally and it’s time for America to realize that, trump should not be allowed to run for any political office again.the moron is trump himself

      • Boy are you ever going to be upset come January 2025. My suggestion is to get the hell out of the USA right now so you don’t get traumatized in 29 months and days.

        Hey, If you think PRESIDENT Trump is dangerous what is your opinion of the senile old twit that is in the White House now?

      • Schiffless, pelosi, Cheney, Waters, Feinstein, Warren, biden, obama, the list of DemoCommunists that should be prosecuted is a mile long.

      • This comment is absolute lunacy, particularly since every syllable out of Schiff’s mouth for years is a complete lie.

      • You should consider a cranial transplant………..WITH A CHICKEN! It will improve your IQ by about a hundred points, giving you an IQ of 100-. Then your mommy won’t have to help you cross the street.

    • I think they just grow a whole lot of stupid in California. WHO are these people? Aliens? They don’t think like ANY normal person I know.

  1. Trump should have been in prison 45 years ago, when the feds first charged him; and when he was convicted of stealing from a veterans fund and a childrens cancer charity, and fined millions for stealing from students of his fake university. 50 year crime spree. Thousands of lawsuits against him.. has never paid bills. We, the taxpayers have paid for his bankruptcies, over and over( he’s never had a successful business.) Now, he’s reportedly 2 BILLION in personal and business debt and living on “ stop the steal” money sent to him by his ignorant followers.
    Grifter carnival barker..

  2. ” I have indenialble evidence the Adam Shit is a complete lunitic” and should never be allow to speak for any American. Should be tossed out on his nose beatin publicly and never be allow anywhere near Washington DC again!

  3. Schiff has hunted a ghost and LIED for four+years. Now what should we do about the actual EVIDENCE of crimes in partnership with his son, Hunter? Will he stand up and support an impeachment for the real criminals, Schiff, Waters, Pelosi, Nadler, Bidens, H Clinton and the actors involved in carrying out their corrupt directives?

  4. I never thought I would say this but I agree with stiff, as then we can go after Clinton for his assaults of women and underage girls with Epstein and prosecute Obama as his “birth certificate” is a forgery, African American wasn’t being used to identify a race of people in 1964, the term was negro.

  5. Why you dirty little pencil neck piece of Schiff. It’s people like you that caused the notorious French Revolution in which their noble men and women were beheaded by the crowds.

  6. All of these people “God wannabe’s” need to be expelled on a deserted island away from the United States.
    Since that will never happen, when will the Republicans start prosecuting these power hungry Democrats????

  7. Well we do knowjust HOW crooked the FBI and doj are so i would not be suprised to have them use FAKE and PLANTED evidence for another FAKE hearing are trial But that will not keep there crooked butts in office election time Unless they are like last time and have another crooked election where they dont count conservatives votes

  8. All the democrats and rinos spouting their TDS crap are the one’s who need to be investigated and audited. It has been an observable act to now know any time these people speak are nothing but lies and means for their own empowerment. They are the real criminals. Biden and his whole family are a crime syndicate. He didn’t get the name of China Joe for nothing. From the son’s lap top to the daughter’s diary this president is guilty of treason and who knows the extent of sexual acts against children. The massive wealth these people have acquired would trigger all kinds of investigations on an average citizen. These people are committing massive corruption with no media coverage. Random audits on our elected representatives are needed with real consequences.

  9. If America desire to be one nation under God, then Former President Trump and those who supported the attempted insurrection must be held criminally accountable. This is not about politics it is about who we as a nation say we are.
