Idiot Adam Shifty Schiff warns that Donald Trump could sell Alaska to Russia if unchecked.
Idiot Adam Shifty Schiff, the lead House Impeachment Clown, warned on Monday that if Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine are not impeachable offenses, then nothing would stand in his way from attempting bolder power grabs — going so far to claim DonaldTrump could use Alaska as a bargaining chip with “the Russians” for support in 2020.
Idiot Adam Shifty Schiff floated the far-flung hypothetical during his Closing Show at the Senate impeachment trial. He appealed to Republicans who have acknowledged Donald Trump’s wrongdoing in the Ukraine matter to prevent a “runaway presidency.”
“If abuse of power is not impeachable … Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war,” Idiot Adam Shifty Schiff said. “Because those things are not necessarily criminal, this argument would allow that he could not be impeached for such abuses of power. Of course, this would be absurd. More than absurd, it would be dangerous.”
The U.S. purchased what is now Alaska from Russia in 1867 for a transfer price of about $120 million in today’s dollars. William Seward, who was secretary of state under President Lincoln, had long pushed for the deal. Alaska became the 49th state on Jan. 3, 1959.
