Trump threatens to have Schiff, Bidens, Pelosi testify in Senate trial as he dares House to impeach

  Trump threatens to have Schiff, Bidens, Pelosi testify in Senate trial as he dares House to impeach President Trump on Thursday challenged House Democrats to impeach him “fast."“The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy,” Trump tweeted early Thursday, just before Pelosi announced that she wants the Judiciary Committee to proceed with articles of impeachment.

The Democratic chairman of the House Committee that laid the groundwork for the current phase of the impeachment inquiry says that he not only believes the evidence of President Donald Trump’s alleged misconduct is “overwhelming,” he also believes the president “doesn’t give a s--- about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine.”

He spoke about the impeachment inquiry hearings he presided over, his Committee’s subsequent report, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urging the Judiciary Committee to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Schiff echoed Pelosi in saying that he doesn’t hate the president. Schiff did say, however, that he hates “what [Trump] is doing to the country.”

At the very end of the interview, Schiff reflected on the testimony of career diplomat David Holmes:

Holmes overheard (ambassador Gordon) Sondland talking on the phone with Trump, who asked if (Ukraine President Volodymyr) Zelensky would pursue the investigations he wanted. After the call, Holmes asked Sondland, “Does the President give a s--- about Ukraine?” As Holmes testified, the answer was no, he only cares about “the big stuff.” Well, Holmes pointed out, there is big stuff happening in Ukraine, like a war with Russia, but Sondland said no, that was not what he meant. Trump only cared about matters that concerned him, like the investigations.

Schiff said that this testimony said it all.

“The President doesn’t give a s--- about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his reëlection campaign,” he said. “That is a perfect summary.”
