President Donald Trump joked on Thursday that Congressman Adam Schiff (D – California) subpoenaed the Thanksgiving turkey as one of his key impeachment witnesses.
President Trump told the people in the audience,
“They’ve already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement.”
Congressman Adam Schiff, the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has aggressively subpoenaed many people associated with President Donald Trump in his attempt to find something to impeach the President on.
President Trump, on the other hand, has pushed back continuously, asserting that he did not break the law and that the partisan impeachment is an attempt by the Democrats to coup the government.
To President Trump’s credit on the situation, many Democrats have absolutely used impeachment as political fodder long before their most recent attempt. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, for instance, declared that her most recent run for Congress was entirely to impeach President Trump, making no claims as to what was impeachable.
Rep. Al Green also said that impeaching President Trump may be the only way Democrats can win in 2020, suggesting his party has oversold the promise by so much that they need to go through with it to win votes.
Despite Democrats having enough votes in the House of Representatives to impeach the President, multiple Democrats are now peeling away, saying they would rather just wait until 2020 and try to beat him in the election.
Even former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s own campaign manager admitted this week that, unless the current situation changes, President Trump is on track to win in 2020.
At the same time, President Donald Trump has been gaining support in key swing states needed to secure the 2020 election. Also, since Republicans currently control the U.S. Senate, it would be very hard to get the supermajority needed to remove him from office.
It seems like Democrats will try and keep the impeachment going until Christmas, but it is unlikely that Adam Schiff will actually try to subpoena any Thanksgiving turkeys.
