    So CORRUPT shit for brains Shiff thinks that whenever Democrats say that President Trump or probably any other Republican President is "corrupt" that they lose their Executive Privilege and have to give the Jack*sses whatever they want.

    It's to the point that the Democrat jack*sses in congress and the media need to pay the same price for their obstruction and corruption as Obama, Hillary and their minions in the DOJ, FBI and CIA who orchestrated this.

    Adam Schiff Drops A Bomb On Trump: There Is No Privilege That Covers Corruption

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) blew up Trump claims that his phone call with Ukraine’s president is privileged and can’t be released.”

    Transcript:

    TAPPER: Well, I said that to Secretary Mnuchin just two minutes ago, why not just release this to settle the issue? And he said, because it would set a horrible precedent, because world leaders should be able to talk to President Trump without having those conversations shared. Your response to that?

    SCHIFF: Well, not if those conversations involve potential corruption or criminality or leverage being used for political advantage against our nation’s interest. And that’s what’s at stake here.This would be, I think, the most profound violation of the presidential oath of office, certainly during this presidency, which says a lot, but perhaps during just about any presidency. There is no privilege that covers corruption. There is no privilege to engage in underhanded discussions. And, again, I don’t know if this is the subject of the whistle-blower complaint. But if it is, it needs to be exposed.

    And we know the inspector general found that complaint urgent. We also know the inspector general found this did not involve a policy disagreement. It’s one thing if you’re talking about a presidential communication that involves a policy issue. That is not a valid whistle-blower complaint. But, here, the inspector general said, this is not what is at issue. We’re talking about serious or flagrant abuse, impropriety, potential violation of law.

    And there’s no privilege that protects that. And the reason I think that, if these two issues are, in fact, one issue, if there is a relationship between this complaint and this issue, you have not only this illicit conduct by the president of the United States, but you also have the added element of a cover-up.

    Video @ link~

    Chairman Schiff was right. If Trump’s behavior was criminal, there is no privilege covering that phone call. Executive privilege does not extend to cover potentially criminal activity by the president. Trump knows this at some level, which is why he keeps saying that he did nothing wrong during the phone call. However, Chairman Schiff also pointed out during the same CNN interview that if Trump did nothing wrong, there is no reason for him not to release the transcript of the call.

    Trump can’t hide his potentially criminal efforts to rope Ukraine into a conspiracy against Joe Biden.

    The Democratic House is proving to be a valuable check against Trump’s efforts to smear his way into a second term.
    There's no corruption except by BIDEN, JACK*SS PARTY, and OBAMA, THE HILLYB*TCH, COMEY, BIDEN and their minions so it's no "bombshell". It's just another dud.

    2. The GOP keeps conveniently forgetting that accusations of wrongdoing change everything
    Accusations mean NOTHING. Democrats and their PIGS have been lying and making accusations since before President Trump was inaugurated. And you STILL have nothing.

    3. Crap load of "Ifs" in this article. Ifs don't cut it. Need House hearings to find the "Dids"
    Lies, rumor, innuendo and more lies. 3 years and that's ALL they have.

    But it's a bombshell!! Or so they think.

    6. Stop saying "if"

    He did it, dammit! This is why the democratic message is so muddled and why Americans are confused about impeachment. Stop being so overly cautious and careful when we all know trump is a criminal!
    Jack*sses are getting close to the point we can kill them all based on "knowing" the jack*sses are corrupt. They have made it clear that it is only what one "thinks", "feels", or "knows" that determines guilt - not TRUTH or EVIDENCE.

    8. it's the GOP who think accusations equal guilt

    Adam Schiff knows that it is still possible that TrumPutin didn't violate the law in this instance, however improbable that is.

    If the call was an abuse of power, then the attempt to cover it up is obstruction of justice. If the whistleblower's complaint really is urgent, then withholding that from Schiff's Committee beyond the seven days is likewise a violation of law.

    So, either TrumPutin is not guilty and has no reason to conceal the call from the Committee, or he and others are guilty of muliple crimes.
    Democrats have demonstrated over and over again that they will SAY and DO anything in their hatred of President Trump and their rage that THEY and their corrupt bitch, Hillary aren't in power and that they aren't able to force their evil agenda on everyone that doesn't agree with them. Based on that President Trump is not obligated to jump every time the PIGS lie about him.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Stupid argument, if it was to succeed, there'd be no Executive privilege because anything Congress wanted to see anything they could get just by claiming they were investigating for any possible corruption.

    That was The Whig Party... based on increased Congressional 'powers' if they could convince The States the Constitution allows for it. Americans stopped voting for them.

    He's revivifying his tv-career. That's what Dems do when they run one-or-both Houses. Launch tv-careers. Look at Nadler. They get 5.5-minutes to just sit there and pretend they're the best of all worlds.
