What a difference an election makes. The tables have turned in the House of Representatives so now those who were being hunted, are hunting and the liberals are certainly the prey.
For years, the Democrats have been focusing on “investigations” focused on the GOP, and it did not matter how trite the issue was. Since the November midterm, the Biden Administration and their allies in Congress have had to look over their shoulder and face the music.
This new reality led to a pretty intense interaction on CNN Sunday morning. Rep. Adam Schiff, who has spent much of his career chatting on cable news about Republican “scandals,” was asked if he would comply with a GOP House subpoena. His answer was short and not very surprising.
“If you are subpoenaed by Republicans when they take over, will you comply?”
Schiff’s response, ”We’ll have to consider the validity of the subpoena.”
Are you kidding me? The man has spent years treating subpoenas as though they were sacred and completely authoritative. And now that he might face one, suddenly he has decided that you can make a judgment call on whether or not it has any validity.
It seems that he gets to make the call on these kinds of issues, he makes the rules for the House.
CNN’s Dana Bush did not even push back against Schiff’s hypocrisy. This is the same network that cried on air when Donald Trump won in the 2016 election. They are not going to give a fair and balanced response to Schiff’s silliness.
Don’t forget that it was Schiff that destroyed Steve Bannon on “contempt of Congress” charges. He made this stand just a few months ago. In fact, the congressman from California was so intense that he put a video out on his website bragging about his role in the process. While speaking with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Schiff called Bannon’s indictment for not responding to the House subpoena a “powerful message.”
