I’ve resisted comparing Adam Schiff to Captain Queeg until now, out of respect for the memory of the fictional Naval Captain.
But Schiff just demonstrated his utter pettiness for a fellow member of Congress in such a way that the only parallel that comes to mind is cowardly Captain Queeg (“0ld Yellow Stain”) and his Stalinesque demand for obedience (and missing strawberries!).
As Ranking Member Devin Nunes yielded part of his time to Rep. Elise Stefanik to ask a few questions of Ambassador Yovanovitch. Schiff threw a fit and refused to allow Stefanik to proceed.
Stefanik tried to shame Schiff into allowing her to talk by pointing out that he had repeatedly interrupted her in the first two days of the Sham Impeachment Hearings, but it turned out Schiff has no shame.
He just banged his big fat gavel and told her, in so many words, to shut up. In other words, he “man” handled her.
It was an ugly moment, and demonstrated once again that Schiff is at heart an authoritarian fascist who is not seeking the truth but rather the overthrow of a President. Let’s call it “The Trump Mutiny.”
WHO WE ARE
Frank Miele has spent four decades in the news business and now offers conservative commentary to counter the left-wing bias in the national media. If you enjoy reading these daily essays, I hope you will consider purchasing one of my books. They are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. My new book — “The Media Matrix: What if everything you know is fake?” — shows that Fake News has been around for years. The “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy tackles the politics of the last two decades: Part 1 is subtitled “Bush’s Global Failure: Half Right.” Part 2 is “Obama’s Fundamental Transformation: Far Left.” Part 3 is “Trump’s American Vision: Just Right.” Also consider subscribing to Heartland Diary on YouTube by clicking here for News Every Conservative Can Use.
