Chief Democrat impeachment commissar Adam Schiff and his merry band of managers have had three days to present their case and it is already an unmitigated disaster.
It was always going to be a tough task to convince the Senate that an election should be reversed and a duly elected president be thrown out of office on the flimsy accusations that were the basis of their impeachment articles but Schiff has shot himself in the foot.
According to former Republican congressman Trey Gowdy, the California Democrat’s impeachment strategy is “wildly stupid” and likely doomed to failure.
Gowdy was referring to Schiff’s insistence that President Trump must be ousted because the American people can’t be trusted to pick the nation’s leader – a stunning statement that reveals just how much contempt that Democrats have for elections when they don’t win or can’t rig in their favor.
During an interview with Fox News host Brett Baier, the former House Oversight Committee chairman roasted Schiff over not only his refuting of democracy but also for the accusation that Senate members are corrupt and a part of a cover-up.

Fox News host Bret Baier queried Gowdy on what he called ‘the big question’
“Is the way that Adam Schiff said it, do voters never get to trust the vote and only lawmakers can decide what the line is, that a president can get kicked out of office for?” Baier asked.
Gowdy didn’t hold back, starting off with a ‘but’ that you simply knew was going to leave a mark on Schiff.
“Yeah, Brett, Adam’s ordinarily not that stupid but when you tell the jury, the Senate, on one day that they’re corrupt and then you tell the American people they cannot be trusted to pick the commander in chief, that’s just a wildly stupid trial strategy,” he replied.
“Remember when Donald Trump, as a candidate, began to question the reliability of the vote?” Gowdy asked Baier.
“Well Adam Schiff has done exactly the same thing,” he continued assuming a Democrat’s voice. “American people, we don’t trust you to factor this in in November, so we need a hundred senators to decide that.”
Gowdy reiterated, “It is a wildly stupid trial strategy, only surpassed by Jerry Nadler’s insulting of the jury two days ago.”
Gowdy was referring to Nadler’s meltdown on the Senate floor in which he unleashed the Dems’ latest conspiracy theory that senators who don’t obey Schiff his fellow impeachment managers by allowing them to hijack the trial, that they are guilty of a cover-up.
Not exactly a way to win friends and influence people.
There is wildly stupid and then there is the current incarnation of the Democratic party which eschews elections in favor of bogus allegations, show trials, demonizing of their opponents and a propaganda system that would be the envy of third-world dictators.
Insulting the voters in such a manner isn’t going to win any converts in the “flyover states” of middle America that Schiff and the cultural elitist Hollywood snobs that inhabit his district sneer at.
Nor is it going to sway many Republicans to overthrow President Trump in an election year no matter what Schiff says.
