He used Schiff’s own words against him…
One of the lawyers that is leading Trump’s defense for the Senate impeachment trial, Jay Sekulow, went after Rep. Adam Schiff and used his own words against him. Schiff had said that “the president had attempted to obstruct his and fellow Democrats’ impeachment inquiry by instructing senior aides in the executive branch not to comply with congressional subpoenas to appear and testify.”
But Sekulow recalled that Schiff took a totally different approach when Congress was holding Eric Holder in contempt. Sekulow quoted Schiff saying, “The White House assertion of privilege is backed by decades of precedent that has recognized the need for the president and his senior advisers to receive candid advice and information from their top aides.”
Schiff was not ready for that. Read the rest of the story here.
